There is no better way to celebrate than a decadent chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake. This post is sponsored by the National Peanut Board. I received compensation, but all opinions

So I think we can all agree that ice cream cake is the superior cake. The chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake reigning over all of them. I mean, let’s be real what two flavors go better together than chocolate + peanut butter? They are the dream team.
Peanut butter is a staple in my house. We always keep several jars in the house. I like to mix things up, so we have different types and flavors including some with white chocolate, dark chocolate, and even a cinnamon one that is out of this world. My daughter loves a classic pb&j for lunch (always with strawberry jam and any of the creamy peanut butters). I also love to use my peanut butter for savory dishes like a spicy peanut chicken.
Regardless of what we are in the mood for, peanut butter often finds a way into many of our sweet and savory recipes because of its affordability and versatility. Plus, with its 8 grams of protein, 2 grams of filling fiber and 12 grams of unsaturated fat in each two- tablespoon serving, I can feel good about using it as a key ingredient.
We have a lot of birthdays during the summer and we love to use it as an excuse to switch it up from the traditional layer cake. I’ve been making a lot of ice cream cakes for my family in the summer, and this chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake is one that gets requested year after year.
We start with a base of moist chocolate cake which gets topped with peanut butter fudge, chocolate fudge, and chocolate cookie sandwich pieces for crunch. This is then topped with my favorite peanut butter ice cream recipe which I stuff with peanut butter cups and peanut butter chocolate cookie sandwiches. To finish, we end with chocolate and peanut butter ice cream, drizzles of more chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge and an ice cream cone because, of course.
My favorite part is that you can make this chocolate peanut butter ice cream cake ahead of time. You can also make each part of the cake at any point and assemble when you’d like. Just be sure to tightly wrap the cake and the ice cream. Let the ice cream cake sit at room temperature for about 5 – 10 minutes before cutting with a knife warmed in hot water.
