ice cream sundae with homemade peanut butter sauce

There is no reason to ever buy store-bought ice cream sauce. Why? Because this fabulous recipe exists. I don’t think I could ever come up with this on my own out of thin air, but Joy the Baker did. Go buy some vanilla ice cream and enJOY!


Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sauce

makes about 1/2 cup sauce, enough for 4 sundaes

From the Joy the Baker Cookbook


  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk or cream

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat. Once heated through, peanut butter mixture will be smooth and easily pourable.

Pour over scoops of vanilla ice cream. Go crazy and add chocolate sauce, whipped cream, nuts, bananas, or a cherry on top!
