Chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven in this sweet, rich, and creamy no-churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream.
I’m not a big dessert person, but I have an obsession with chocolate and peanut butter. I often eat chocolate chips with roasted salted peanuts or peanut butter.
That’s all I need for dessert if I am craving something sweet. The only reason you see other desserts on the blog is so that there’s some variety and I don’t bore all of you with only chocolate and peanut butter desserts.
If you are like me and can’t resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, then you are going to love this vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream!
It is sweet, rich, and creamy – just what you’d expect in an ice cream.
No-Churn Ice Cream
The best part is there’s no special equipment needed. Yup, you read that correctly. This no-churn ice cream is made without an ice cream maker.
If you have a double boiler you get bonus points, but that’s really unnecessary too. You can make a makeshift one out of a sauce pan and a heat proof bowl sitting on top of it.Chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven in this sweet, rich, and creamy no-churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream.

Tips for Making Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
- Heat chocolate chips until melted and stir them constantly. Don’t cook them past their melting point. They can become thick and lumpy.
- Also, don’t let the simmering water touch the chocolate or it could seize up.
- Freeze both the chocolate ice cream and the peanut butter ice cream until thickened. That way you get a swirled ice cream.
- When you are ready to serve the chocolate peanut butter ice cream, let it sit out 20-30 minutes to thaw out. It will be easier to scoop.
