If you only have time to make one recipe, let this Frozen Peanut Butter Cups be the one! It's truly unbelievable!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 ounces each), coarsely crushed

What to Do

  1. Place 12 paper baking cups into muffin cups.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat chocolate and shortening over low heat 1 to 2 minutes, stirring just until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Allow to cool slightly; mixture should still be pourable.
  3. Starting at top edge of each paper cup, spoon chocolate over insides of cups, completely covering inside of each cup with about 4 teaspoons of mixture. Chill cups until firm, about 30 minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, combine ice cream, peanut butter, and crushed candy bars; mix well. Spoon evenly into chocolate cups.
  5. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours, or until firm.


Serve with instructions to unwrap the frozen peanut butter cups before attacking them! In a hurry for peanut butter cup ice cream? Skip the part where you make the chocolate cups and, instead, stir 1 cup of chocolate chips into the other ingredients. It's not as fancy as the cups, but it sure tastes just as good.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This recipe sounds great. However, I never make anything with shortening due to obvious health reasons. Is there a healthy alternative to the vegetable shortening?

Not sure about the "baking cups". Are they the paper liners that are used in the muffin tins for muffins, and etc?
