Main Ingredients for Caramel Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple No Churn Ice Cream
You will need the following ingredients and tools. For tools, a hand mixer with beaters and whisk attachment, large and medium mixing bowl, and an 8 x 8″ square glass or metal pan. If you don’t have a square pan you can use a loaf bread pan.
Ingredients include one can sweetened condensed milk, 1/4 cup whole milk, organic peanut butter plain or crunchy, ( it is firmer than the softer peanut butters and will have a pure peanut butter flavor meaning is isn’t as sweet as commercial peanut butter brands). Fudge chocolate topping, I made home made ganache with tiny bit of corn syrup so it won’t harden, purchased caramel sauce or you can make your own here. Chopped dry roasted peanuts. Heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract.
How to Make Caramel Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple Ice Cream
First put your 8 x 8″ square pan or loa pan in the freezer to give it a good chill, also place a large mixing bowl and whisk attachment into the refrigerator to chill for whipping the heavy cream. A good 10 + minutes will work.
In a medium mixing bowl, add one can of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup organic peanut butter, 1/4 cup whole milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix with mixer and regular beaters until mixture is well mixed. Set in refrigerator to chill while you whip up the heavy cream.
Before whipping the cream, make the ganache. In a 2 cup glass measuring cup add 1/4 cup heavy cream and microwave for 45 seconds, remove from microwave and add 2/3 cup chocolate chips. Allow chips and cream to sit about 5 minutes before stirring. Add 1 teaspoon light corn syrup, stir until chocolate and cream becomes thick and creamy. Set aside.
Now, remove the chilled mixing bowl and whisk attachment from refrigerator, Whip 2 cup heavy cream with wire whisk until stiff peaks but not too clumpy firm. Gently pour chilled peanut butter mix into the whipped heavy cream. Fold with a rubber spatula as not to remove the whipped cream loftiness.

Pour half of the ice cream mixture into chilled 8″ x 8″ square baking dish. Smooth top with off set spatula, drop in teaspoons of ganache, about half of it and half of the caramel topping/sauce beside the ganache. Sprinkle with half of the chopped peanuts.
Add the remaining peanut butter ice cream mix over the ganache and caramel, nuts. Smooth with off set spatula, add remaining ganache fudge, caramel and chopped peanuts to the top of ice cream. With a sharp knife lightly swirl the mixture to create a ripple effect.
Off to the freezer the ice cream goes for a 6 hour freeze. Once it is frozen cover with plastic wrap and foil to help prevent freezer burn and drying out.
Ice cream is ready to serve in 6 hours. Overnight for a hard freeze is ideal. but 6 hours will work for a softer freeze.
