Homemade Peanut Butter Sauce: Easy and Delicious!
By Jennifer Spears
Ever head to your favorite ice cream stand for a sundae…and then end up disappointed by the amount of peanut butter sauce they give you?
We have one of those cute little ice cream stands near us…and don’t get me wrong, they “probably” serve the proper amount of peanut butter sauce with their sundaes…but I always run out anyway!
Problem was…the only way I could get my fix at home was to melt peanut butter over my ice cream…and that just wasn’t the same.
I wanted the same sweet, creamy peanut butter sauce that I got at the ice cream stand.
It had such a familiar flavor. I just couldn’t put my finger on where I had tasted it before.
It reminded me of something though…something that I had made before.
Then It Hit Me!
The peanut butter sauce that I liked so much from the ice cream shop reminded me of a peanut butter cheesecake that I had made a few times.
I dug out the recipe, and quickly realized that I could easily turn it into an ice cream sauce by making only a couple of changes.
You can print the recipe at the bottom of the post…but here is how I did it.
First, I added 8 oz of cream cheese, 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 16 oz of heavy cream in a large bowl. (this picture shows a double recipe…I went a little overboard).
Then, I blended it until it was smooth and creamy.
Seriously…this sauce tastes EXACTLY like the really popular peanut butter sauce at our local ice cream stand.
We had it over plain vanilla ice cream, with homemade whipped cream on top.
When we make it again…because I know we will…I may make brownies to serve under the ice cream!
We cook at home almost all the time…and this is why. With the money we save by making sundaes at home, we can afford to serve up the sundaes in really cute bowls that the kids love!
