Layered Ice Cream Pops

Category: Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup roasted salted peanuts
  • 12 chocolate peanut butter cups, unwrapped
  • 6 ounces (about 3/4 cup) hot fudge sauce
  • 6 ounces (about 3/4 cup) smooth peanut butter
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 8 five-ounce paper cups
  • 8 popsicle sticks


Make sure the vanilla ice cream to be slightly softened but not melting. Leave it out at room temperature for a few minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Chop the salted peanuts into coarse pieces.

Chop the peanut butter cups roughly into eighths.

Warm up the hot fudge sauce and the peanut butter in separate bowls in the microwave. You don't actually want them to be hot, you just want to warm them enough so that they're fluid and easy to spread. About 15 or 20 seconds each should do the trick.

Dp the layering! Place a spoonful of chopped peanuts in the bottom of each of the eight paper cups. Take a small scoop of slightly softened vanilla ice cream, about 2 inches across, and place one in each cup.

Smooth the ice cream with the back of a spoon until it's in an even layer.

Pour a spoonful of the hot fudge sauce on top of the ice cream. If it doesn't spread out on its own, use the spoon to nudge it toward the sides so it's an even layer.

Top the hot fudge sauce with a generous spoonful of chopped peanuts, so that the sauce is mostly covered with nuts.

Add a softened scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the peanuts and spread it around.

Spoon a tablespoon of the fluid peanut butter onto the vanilla and smooth it into an even layer.

Top the peanut butter with a generous handful of peanut butter cup chunks. These are my favorite part, so I like to make sure that every inch of peanut butter is covered with candy bits.

Apply one last layer of ice cream and smooth it out evenly.

Add a layer of chopped peanuts on top of the ice cream and press down on them slightly to embed them in the top. Insert a popsicle stick in the middle and press down until it's almost all the way through.

Re-freeze the pops for a few hours, until the ice cream is firm again.

Once the pops are re-frozen, they're ready to enjoy! Snip the paper cup with scissors, then carefully peel it away from the ice cream pop.
