  • 18.4 oz brownie mix family size
  • 1.5 quart vanilla ice cream thawed
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 oz evaporated milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz frozen whipped topping thawed
  • Peanuts, chocolate chips and maraschino cherries   for topping, if desired


  • Prepare brownie mix in a 9x13 pan according to package directions. Evenly spread the ice cream over the brownies and top with an even layer of peanuts. Place pan in freezer.
  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter, powdered sugar and evaporated milk. Add chocolate chips and bring mixture to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool for 10 minutes and pour evenly into pan from freezer. Freeze for 1 hour.
  • Spread the whipped topping evenly over the top. Cover with foil and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours. Top with chocolate chips, peanuts and cherries before serving, if desired!


  • Omit the peanuts entirely for a nut-free dessert.
  • Be sure to freeze for the full 4 hours to avoid a sloppy dessert.
  • Top with chocolate chips, peanuts, hot fudge topping and/or cherries before serving, if desired!
