Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping #recipe from @KatrinasKitchen at

My baby boy turned 1 today. It’s so very exciting to see him growing and learning new things every day. Growing up is bittersweet in my eyes though. I’m happy that he is starting to walk and talk but sad that he isn’t content to cuddle and coo at me for hours. I remember when Four Year Old Foodie would ONLY take naps in my arms or in the arms of my husband. *sigh* This time goes so quickly and life is uncertain so I try to cherish every moment. One thing I am most certain will never change however is my love of peanut butter.I blame my dad for this obsession. You see, when I was a child my dad always offered a spoonful of peanut butter as a remedy for hiccups. If you think that’s weird then you will think it is even more bizarre that it really works! Well, it worked for me anyway. When I was in high school my (now) husband thought this remedy was absurd and that it was “all in my head” so I decided to put it to the test. The next time I got the hiccups instead of taking a spoonful of peanut butter I simply opened the jar and took a deep sniff. Turns out he was right- even just the smell of peanut butter told my mind it was time to stop hiccuping.

Just to be clear I reverted back to my spoonful remedy anyway.

For me the only way you could make peanut butter better is by making it easier to spoon out and drizzle on whatever is close by. This peanut butter topping is perfect for hiccups, ice cream, brownies, or whatever you have on hand. You could make a killer peanut butter milkshake with this stuff. Are you a chocolate-lover or do you prefer vanilla? The good news is that peanut butter goes with EVERYTHING!

    Happy Birthday to your baby boy! 🙂

    Thank you so much for this recipe! But I doubt it’ll last in the fridge 2 weeks, because I would probably eat it with a spoon… Peanut butter AND condensed milk! I love the picture of that dark chocolate ice-cream!!!

    Peanut butter and condensed milk on ice cream? How haven’t I thought of this yet? I live in a seriously peanut butter loving household, I’m sure if I show this recipe to boyfriend some ice cream and condensed milk will mysteriously appear in our shopping basket tomorrow.

    Happy First Birthday to your little boy!! 🙂 I may need to try your dads remedy for hiccups, every time I laugh I get them. And, if the peanut butter doesn’t work then well, its an excuse to eat a tablespoon of peanut butter!
    This topping looks sooo good. Wishing I had a bowl of vanilla ice cream and this!

    Wendy — April 15, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Happy birthday to your little boy! Mine turned one late last month, so I totally get the missing baby cuddles — and you have a four year old boy like me, too! Aren’t they fun (and a bit crazy?) 🙂 Anyways,I just tagged you in a writing meme: No worries about following through — Just think it’s fun to learn a little bit more about the bloggers I admire. Have a great weekend! ~ Courtney

    I just made cake batter ice cream. I’m tempted to pour this topping of yours over it despite the fact that it may not work well together. It sounds so dreamy!

    Grace — April 18, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Happy 1st birthday to your little boy Katrina. I was so hoping to see some photos of the celebration, you must share – please! I so miss that age and I agree time flies by so quickly, my two are 17 and 19 and honestly I don’t know where the time has gone. Seems like only yesterday that I was cuddling them in my arms. I’m sure you’ve enjoyed the wonderful year of firsts. I ca’t wait to try your peanut butter next time the hiccups come on.

    You are a genius, I’ve never once thought to make a peanut butter sauce for ice cream but it sounds absolutely delicious. Putting it on my must try list. My kids will love you for this one.

    Oh my gosh! Uhm, yum. I have a team full of track girls who would kill for this… I don’t know why, but we’re all addicted to peanut butter! My theory is that running makes your body crave something that peanut butter has… I’ll have to make this!!

    Apron Appeal — June 4, 2011 at 3:05 am

    Katrina! I made this tonight and I tasted some. It was so good. I tasted a little bit more to make sure it was just right. I have been so good, but I just couldn’t stop myself from licking the spoon. I won’t tell you what happened to my nursing baby because of it, but I’ll just say, he’s going to be on his $50.00 formula for a couple days….and it was totally worth it. I’m a horrible mother. When I post about this I think I might change the name to have to do with how much those three bites cost me. 😉 Again, totally worth it – I feel like Rapunzel in Tangled, I’m so conflicted with my choice to eat it.

    Little Sister — August 30, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    i did not have any condensed milk so i tried it with regular milk and some sugar and it came out great! thank you so much for the idea… dairy queen has this but its much cheaper to make your own 🙂

    Valerie Jamison — April 14, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    Magdalina — December 17, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    Can I use evaporated milk instead, cause that is all I have on hand, and will it work for the peanut butter sauce????

    Luke — February 18, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    I made this recently and it’s delicious! Mine looks so much thicker than your pictures. It wouldn’t pour very well.
