Fluffernutter Brownie Batter Ice Cream (★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆)

The Odd Couple.

French Fries and Chocolate Milkshakes.

Peaches and a BBQ grill.

Skinny jeans and stilettos.  

What do all these things have in common?

Um, that they are flipping awesome together?!

Sometimes opposites can make the most compatible pairings.

I offer a poignant example:

I know these two people, you see.

One:                                                                              Two:
Has sophisticated taste in music.                                       Has no problem rocking out to the Beibs.
Needs their stories to be full of whimsy and fantasy.            Needs hard core character development.
Loves animals.                                                                 Likes their cat. (singular)
Is a creative genius.                                                         Is an professional organizer.
Extrovert                                                                         Introvert
Blonde (for today)                                                            Brunette (for years)
Tall                                                                                 Short

...Seriously, the list can go on.

One is my best friend, and Two is, well, me.  Notice I said "Best Friend" as in these two total opposites not only tolerate each other, but purposely spend hours upon hours all the time.

Obviously, we have to have some things in common or our hang out sessions would be short lived.
Things like 60's fashion, The Walking Dead, and cupcakes help make up for the times we spend TWO hours trying to pick a movie. ("[Insert 80's Movie Suggestion here]." "Oh, I'm not really into the 80's." "Eighties?? :)" "Um, I said no." "80's!!!" "That's it. Molly Ringwald is going down!")

One thing we have always been able to agree upon is Peanut Butter.

How awesome is PB?  Am I right?!

Peanut Butter and Jelly.
Peanut Butter in a Milkshake.
Peanut Butter on a spoon.
Peanut Butter and...Marshmallow?

Two things I would have never thought to put together, yet the combination seems so....ordained.

How did I not know about this till like a year ago?????  What kind of childhood did I endure?  To not be introduced to the "Fluffernutter?" This is an utter travesty, I tell you.

So what is a peanut butter lover to do?

Whip up the most peanut buttery ice cream on the planet!  That's what.

Seriously, this two-ingredient ice cream is like the best thing ever!
....Add some marshmallow fluff to rectify childhood trauma,
....Top it off with leftover brownie batter for good measure,


Earth shattering, I know.
Fluffernutter Brownie Batter Ice Cream
-1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
-2 cups Heavy Whipping
-1/2 cup Peanut Butter
-1/2 cup Marshamallow Fluff
-Prepared Edible Brownie Batter:
       1/4 Box Brownie Mix
       2 Tbsp Butter
       1 Tbsp Water
       Mix together and roll into bite sized bits.

1) Place large mixing bowl in freezer.  (It helps when whipping the heavy cream).  While waiting for
    bowl to chill (approx. 10 min), in a medium sized mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1 can
    sweetened condensed milk until well blended.  *1/2 cup is a LOT of peanut butter.  Use 1/4 cup for
    a less overwhelming flavor.

2) After peanut butter and condensed milk are combined add in 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff.  Mix/beat
    till just combined.  Do not over mix.

3) Take large bowl out of freezer and beat 2 cups heavy cream till stiff peaks form.  Fold peanut butter
    mixture into whipped cream. Add brownie bits, folding till dispersed throughout.

4) Place mixture into a covered container (tupperware, etc.) and place in freezer.  Freeze overnight.
    Scoop.  Enjoy!

Tip: Keep a glass of milk handy.
Prepare to have your peanut butter lover socks knocked off.

    1. Oh! Haha. Mmmmmmm. What kind of candy?! Candy is tricky in ice cream because sometimes it freezes weird.

    1. Haha, I always "make" things for "other" people too. But we know what's up.

  12. Visiting from the Tasty Tuesdays link-up! This ice cream looks delicious. I love fluffernutters and brownies so I can only imagine how amazing they are together!

    1. Thanks Danielle. It's like PB, mallows, and chocolate were made for each other.

  13. Sounds heavenly!! I'd have to use Sunbutter, my hubs is allergic to peanuts (gah, I know, right?).
    Saw this featured on Marvelous Mondays, and pinned it!
    Kim @ *Soliloquy Of Food & Such*

    1. Aw, thanks Kim! I'm sure Sunbutter would be fine! Especially if you two like the flavor of it. Or you can just omit the "nut-butter" altogether and have vanilla ice cream with brownie batter.
