I was thinking lately about all the wishes I made as a child and young adult… All the times that God redirected my path to bring me to the day when I met my husband. The strangest part of our love story is that we had the same friends, attended the same small college, both had studies in the music department, and even graduated from college at the same ceremony… but never met.
Until one day he walked into the church I attended with his saxophone, and as I saw him on the stage and he saw me across the congregation, there was this weird connection. I felt like I had known him forever and later discovered that he felt the same way.
When Peanut Butter Meets Chocolate
People say that we go together like peanut butter and jelly, but I have never liked jelly on my peanut butter sandwiches. I would much rather add a layer of chocolate! And I think peanut butter and chocolate is a much better representation of what marriage is all about. Each is individual, but they compliment one another so well, and one with out the other is just not as good as when they are together. Plus, every once in a while, things get a little nuts but they always smooth back out.
This peanut butter cup ice cream pie is decadent and dreamy, perfect for a special occasion and not difficult at all. If you want an easy showstopper dessert, make this pie.
- While I made this in a springform pan, you could probably make it in a deep pie dish or even stretch it, using the entire brownie mix, into an 8×10 casserole dish.
- I used a family-size brownie mix but only place half of the batter into my springform pan. I put the other half in a round cake pan to serve for snack later.
- My favorite ice cream is Moose Tracks®, the vanilla ice cream with fudge swirls and tiny peanut butter cups studded throughout the frozen dairy dream. Oh my goodness! However, you could use any of your favorite ice cream flavors.
- Feel free to experiment with different frosting layers or add a layer of mousse, but I do not recommend an ice cream sauce as it can become VERY hard when frozen.
