Can’t get enough of peanut butter and chocolate together? Then this decadent peanut butter oreo ice cream is for you!
peanut butter oreo ice cream

So, you know I cope with packing stress by eating, right?

And binge watching terrible reality television. So many hours of my life have been lost to the Married At First Sight 6 month reunion annnnddd then reading “articles” about what is going to happen next for the couples aaaannnnnnddddd then stalking all of their social media accounts because I NEED ANSWERS.

I can’t even tell you.


Thankfully I’ve maxed myself out on trashy things, so I’ve been stress snacking on strawberries nonstop. Could be worse.

ALSO thankfully, we ran out of this ice cream early last week and I somehow managed to restrain myself from making more, otherwise….

…I don’t even want to think about otherwise.

But it would probably involve an emergency trip to The Gap for new clothes since none of mine would fit and I’d have nothing to pack. And we wouldn’t want that.


So here’s the deal with this peanut butter oreo ice cream: it really is as good as you think.

It was born of a mistaken box of purchased oreos and a love of peanut butter…and aren’t those the things that the best ice cream dreams are made of?

Basically, I used my favorite Jeni’s Ice Cream base recipe, which is egg-free, super easy, and comes out perfectly creamy every time, and mixed in some crushed oreos in the last few minutes of churning. Aaaannnnndddd now I’m pretty sure the.boy will never let me make another ice cream flavor again. Because HOW ARE WE GOING TO TOP THIS.

Challenge: accepted. Stay tuned.

    PB and Oreo! Wow this looks so decadent. Pinned!

  8. Um…my diet has been terrible the last two weeks all because of my move. The stress combined with not really being able to find most of my kitchen things has been terrible. ACK! I need ice cream and trashy TV. Love this combo – can never go wrong with PB + chocolate!

  9. It’s like the perfect combo – pb and oreos! I’ve been thinking that I need to bring out my ice cream maker soon now that summer time is just about here… This recipe may need to be the first one I make!!!!

  10. CakeSpy says:

    Peanut butter = protein = this ice cream = meal replacement.


  11. OMG…there are almost no words for this ice cream…let’s just say I would have a very hard time restraining myself from eating the whole batch in a day. I don’t think the flavor combo gets any better, but I know you’ll come up with another flavor that’s equally fabulous! And thank you so much for the shout out! xoxo

  12. umm, i totally need to try this! yum!

  13. danielle says:

    Oh, it’s definitely time to make ice cream and yours sounds great!

  15. Everything about this ice cream sounds incredible! Loving the peanut butter and oreo combination!

  16. Yep, I need a bowl of this. Peanut butter + oreos is the greatest unsung flavor combination of all mankind, I must affirm 🙂

  17. Pam says:

    Packing stresses me out too… I have a feeling this ice cream would make me feel much better!!

  18. THIS. IS. EVERYTHING. I need a gigantic bowl in my life ASAP.

  19. It’s 20’C here today, I am craving ice cream, and this seems like the solution to all of life’s problems. I foresee it in my future, soon!

  20. This looks absolutely delicious! I used to eat double stuf oreos with peanut butter slathered on them, so this is right up my alley!

  21. WOW, I misread the Oreo as Orzo, LOL! Oreo is of course, much better! PB ice cream is already the best thing EVER! LOL

  22. Stress eating strawberries – yes, I can relate! But you have to take a decadent snack break sometimes too and this ice cream looks like the way to do it in style!

  23. I shouldn’t read recipes before I’ave had breakfast because now I want it – for breakfast!

  24. Kate says:

    So happy for warm weather and ice cream.

  25. Wow! I will be making this immediately! I love making ice cream in the summer. Which may not be a good thing, but whatevs. This ice cream is happening!

  26. I usually don’t like chocolate things in my ice cream, but oreo cookies are definitely the ONLY exception! I can only imagine how good the peanut butter flavors add to the ice cream. When are you going to open an ice cream shop? I’ll be your first (and most loyal) customer!

  27. Dipping oreos in PB is basically my vegan dessert go to when I can’t be bothered to bake! This looks incredible- two awesome flavors in one summery treat 🙂

  28. I am all about this!! Great photos, too.

  29. Christine says:

    Have a wonderful trip/honeymoon and fall in love with Italy! It’s ridiculously easy, to tell the truth!

  30. This looks incredibly delicious with peanut butter and chocolate!

  31. Now you have me thinking that I really need to buy and ice cream maker. This looks so yummy. I love the peanut butter and Oreo combination.

  32. My elementary school friend used to have peanut butter and oreos all the time, I used to think peanut butter and oreos sounded like the worst combo ever… until The Parent Trap became my favorite movie. I mean, if Lindsay Lohan was doing it, why wasn’t I? (Luckily, I stopped emulating her from an early age)
    This seriously looks like heaven. I know what I’m going to do when I land in Vancouver this summer and I can finally reunite with my ice cream maker (ehem.. I mean my familly)

  33. Zainab says:

    I want to say quit stress eating yo…but also I like that this came out of that period. holy yum!! And honeymoon is going to be all kinds of fun 🙂

  34. Eileen says:

    Are you guys flying out tomorrow! So exciting!! ! You are going to love it (I say, despite not knowing which cites you’re going to or whether you’ve been before). We loved Rome so much when we were there. I think a batch of this delicious, delicious ice cream is the perfect send-off — especially if you also plan to eat plenty of gelato next week, that is. 🙂

  35. I would have been tempted to make more, rather than do anything else 🙂

  36. Sues says:

    Mmmm two of my very favorite things are peanut butter and Oreos!! I hope you can stop being stressed soon and enjoy everything!!

  37. Agness says:

    If I could, I would eat peanut butter every single day, no joke! Definitely my favourite food ever so your recipe makes me a happy girl!

  38. Kelly says:

    This is the ultimate flavor combo! Ice cream is my weakness so I would be eating way too much of this in one sitting – totally worth it though. Good luck with packing and everything and have lots of fun on your honeymoon girl! Can’t wait to hear all about it 🙂

  39. Hotly Spiced says:

    I know what you mean about the packing. I always pack the night before a trip and then lie awake all night wondering about all the things I’m certain I’ve forgotten to pack. I do love how there is cream cheese in this ice cream – it looks amazing xx

  40. Oh, geez. Peanut butter + oreos + ICE CREAM = the kind of paradise I want to live in forever. I need a quadruple-scoop of this ice cream!!

  41. Haha accidental oreo purchase? That’s was just a subliminal purchase I think. As being in Columbus I have to say that I am still very upset that they closed down for the 2nd time. I’m dying a little inside waiting for them to reopen, if ever. Good thing I have the cookbook just in case!

  42. Katie says:

    do you do mail-order of this please? pretty please? you could just swing it by in person on your way to Italy even. let me know when to expect you 🙂

  43. Lynn says:

    My favorites – right in the same bowl!

  44. Now you know I’ve been obsessed with ice cream lately, right? This flavor combo is so good, I don’t blame you for being tempted to make more. And p. s. I’m so glad to hear I’m not the only one who gets all crazy and stalkery when it comes to needing answers to my trashy tv!!

  45. yummmy! I just got an ice-cream maker so am itching to try some ice cream recipes! This looks delicious.

  46. […] and veggies (cherries omg!) Peanut butter (still) Soft serve ice cream DENISE!! Thinking you could make this, BUT with sunbutter 🙂 Loving That my mom is finally enjoying herself and on vacation. So proud […]

  47. Johanna GGG says:

    yep looks pretty amazing – and I say this with no disrespect but I hope you will be able to find some amazing gelati in Italy and don’t spend the whole trip saying that this ice cream was better (though I wouldn’t blame you if you do)
