Mouth-Watering Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Cookie and Ice Cream ~~~Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Trio

Source
5 stars from 1 rating of Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Trio

This is a decadent dessert for that will turns an ordinary day into over-the-top. A combination of textures, flavors, and temperatures will impress and please all who are lucky enough to partake of it.

Three ingredients that need no song of praise, no introduction, and no fanfare that are used to create an insanely delicious dessert are found in this recipe. Chocolate, peanut butter, and ice cream are somewhere near the top of my top of my favorites for dessert.

  • The good news is that it requires little fuss and bother to prepare.
  • Collect your ingredients. Mix. Blend, Form, Bake.
  • Slather on a little ice cream, press two cookies together, freeze. Serve.

The flavors will dance around in your mouth at the first bite.

Happy Guests. Happy Family.


Trivia About Chocolate You May Just Need to Know One Day...

  • "Several medical studies have shown that eating chocolate in moderation can actually prolong your life by reducing risk of blood clots and fighting bad cholesterol." One source stated that dark chocolate is the best....who knows??


  • "Chocolate is actually a valuable energy source. A single chocolate chip can provide enough energy for an adult human to walk 150 feet."
  • Chocolate's anitoxidants are known to help prevent cancer!!!

A few little hints

  • When preparing these cookies, carefully and gently mixing ingredients will yield a tender but not fragile cookie.
  • Using an ice cream scoop will give you enough batter to make two perfect size cookies for the chocolate peanut butter ice cream trio.
  • Make the cookies earlier in the day so they can cool. Try to keep them from being eaten before you use them.
  • As was mentioned in the instructions, placing no more than six on a sheet pan is suggested as they spread while baking.
  • You can buy bags of peanut butter pieces just as you can the chocolate pieces In some areas, they can be purchased in a bag together.
  • If you want the extra flavor of peanut butter, adding the quarter cup of peanut butter will provide that depth of flavor for you.

JUMBO COOKIES

If you wish, you can make jumbo cookies using this batter. Use one large scoop of batter. Round it a bit, press down to about 1/2 inch thickness. Four on a sheet pan is suggested. Let cook about 9 -11 minutes. Check at 9 minutes to be sure they are not cooking too quickly.

Thank you, AuFait for your kind words. You know that I enjoy your reading your articles and always learn something new or a new point of view to consider. I think I have read all of them but keep checking back.

I'm in the mood for a chocolate fix today. I've learned that it's best to give in to cravings because otherwise I'll just keep eating and eating until I get the coveted item. Better to go straight for it and save all those calories leading up to it. These look yummy. I bet kids love them! Perfect for a hot day and we're getting more and more of them again.

You have some really wonderful articles on a variety of things. I always look forward to coming here to see what I haven't read yet. Voting this up and UI, pinning to my 'Cookies' board and sharing with followers.

I love making cookies and I love ice cream so I will definitely be giving this a try. I liked your other recipe for peach topping as well. They are both great ideas.

My phone now is a droid and it takes great pictures. The phone I had before this one often left very dark backgrounds to my pics and the images often were distorted. So, happy me, with my droid and my relatively new camera.

Happy photographing, rebecca.

nmdonders...I had to laugh. You know we enjoy those delicious salads and truthfully often they are full of fats lurking behind a lettuce leaf or a piece of spinach. Now, in all honesty, this is not a dessert for someone who is on a serious weight loss plan except maybe for a splurge on occasion.

It is worth saving up all of the extra calories for the week so you can enjoy this. And remember, if you are making this, you will burn calories doing so. Thank you for stopping by. I will be over to visit soon.

Looks delicious! They're also about 1/2 the fat of the so called healthy salad I had earlier. Probably tastier too.

rebecca...That is good. Daughters are a great gift for sure. My daughter gave me my camera for my birthday in January. Prior to that I was using my phone. Needless to say it did not produce very good images. As I said, this photo thing is a work in progress.

My daughter worked with me on photos when I first started on HP. She is somewhat of a pro. I remember wondering why the heck she took so many shots.Now I know. I am doing my own now.

rebecca...thanks. I have struggled with the whole photographing thing. I am beginning to learn but have much to learn. I so understand why so many photos need to be taken. It gives lots of choices...the ability to pick the right lighting and image. I feel like a little kid in this area for sure.

The trios are divine. My grandson just came and picked up dessert for his Momma. I had held them in the freezer till their dinner was over. My daughter just texted and said they are stuffed and when will I be making more??

My grandson agrees with you. He loved the jumbo cookies I sent over this morning. Maybe sometime you will get the chance to make some. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi, first I deleted one of your responses. The comment appeared twice. Don't feel bad. I have done the same thing. I just wanted you know that is why one is not responded to.

This IS a keeper of a recipe. Easy, flavorful, and all of the food groups...sugar, chocolate, peanut butter, ice cream. There are no other food groups, right? Thank you for stopping by. I will be over to visit soon.

Hi, Julie.

These are a dessert that will seem like you spent way longer than you actually do when you present them to whomever.

The textures and flavors blend together so nicely. Thank you for stopping by. I will be over to visit soon.

YUMMM! I'll have the jumbo version, thank you! What a great Summer treat. I have always loved ice cream sandwiches anyway, and these look divine. pstraubie48, I have noticed that you are really good with food photography. Voted awesome and shared!

Thanks, billybue. You will be hooked. I took my daughter the jumbo cookies this morning and she texted back she couldn't wait for the ice cream to be between two of them. I am on the way over now to take their trios to them. They are just finishing their evening meal.

I do hope you make these. They are now one of my favorites.

Thank you for stopping by. It always makes me smile when 'old' familiar faces stop by.
