Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwich

These Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream sandwiches feature soft peanut butter cookies, vanilla or raspberry ice cream, and a layer of fruity goodness. It is the classic PB&J sandwich remade into a fun afternoon treat.

This recipe was inspired after a week of too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at work and the need to change it up from just grape jelly. My sugar-loving mind has the ability to turn anything into a dessert. This treat was born.

PB&J Ice Cream

I can’t hear the words Peanut Butter and Jelly without the song “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” popping into my head. You are welcome for that earworm!

Let’s get back to making these Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches it is not particularly complicated. However, a few tips will help you avoid a sticky melted mess.

As far as actually making these peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwiches, I probably don’t even need to tell how as a picture is pretty self-explanatory. However, I will give you a few tips to make the best ice cream sandwiches ever.

PB&J Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Start with a good peanut butter cookie. My favorite is these Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Cookies. Spread a layer of your favorite jelly on the bottoms of the peanut butter cookie. Freeze for 20 minutes.

Place a scoop of slightly softened ice cream on your cookie. (A sturdy ice cream scoop is a must-have, order my favorite scoop here!) Lightly press the ice cream out to the edges. Top with another cookie and back in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm it up.

Peanut Butter Desserts

Peanut butter is one of my favorite ingredients because of the variety of textures along with the versatility of being used for sweet or savory. It can go super-rich or bring a subtle saltiness to a dessert.

The sweet and salty balance is perfect in this Peanut Butter Cookie Milkshake as well as these thick Peanut Butter Cookie Bars. If super-rich is more your thing Peanut Butter S’mores Bars these classic Buckeyes (Peanut Butter Balls) fill that craving.

Turning the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich into other desserts like cake is fun. Like this Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake using strawberry jam or this one from Liv for Cake.
