This is the last week of classes! Hurray! Hurrah!

Yes, in answer to your question. Teachers are much more excited about the end of school than the students. For two months, we can keep normal hours and not spend our days talking kids into learning. Sounds like a win to me! And let’s not forget the ice cream.

My summers are spent with ice cream. Whether I’m eating it straight up or incorporating it into another dessert, life is grand. This frozen peanut butter ice cream pie is made with Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla ice cream, and you will not want to miss one bite!

Frozen Peanut Butter Pie

The first time I ever tried Blue Bunny® ice cream was at summer camp. School was out and I was feeling free and easy, but that all changed when I went to a sleep-away camp full of kids I didn’t know. It was really intimidating, and it threw my 12 year-old world into chaos.

I’d like to say that it was the best summer ever, because that would be a good ending, right? The truth is always more complicated than that, but I did learn a lot. And I can totally credit some of my more introspective summer moments that year to Blue Bunny® ice cream.

See, we got to have a scoop of it after dinner, and it was probably my favorite part of the day. I’d take my bowl of ice cream down to the lake (which was, of course, freezing to swim in) and sit on the edge. I’d savor the ice cream slowly, staring at the water and having all the idealistic summer dreams that a girl can have. You know, about what life will be someday, when we’re all grown up and have the perfect life. All that kid dream stuff.

Summers are for dreaming, after all. The school year makes it hard to do anything but work nonstop, but in the summer, anything is possible. The evenings are full of pinkish gold sunsets, and the mornings dawn bright and full of promise. How can anyone not love that?

For that matter, how can anyone not love ice cream? There are some pretty incredible flavors that I couldn’t resist buying when I was at Walmart this past week, like Blue Bunny® Salted Caramel Craze and Blue Bunny® Peanut Butter Party. The packaging is clear so that you can actually see the swirls in the ice cream flavors, so start swooning now. I’m totally hosting an ice cream party with my kids to celebrate the end of school this week. We’ll have to turn the sprinkler on, too.

This pie incorporates the timeless simplicity of Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla ice cream with my two loves, chocolate and peanut butter. Set in a chocolate cookie crust, the ice cream is mixed with peanut butter, filled with chocolate chips, and topped with irresistibly fun Smucker’s Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge Flavored Topping. I don’t know about you, but the creamy ice cream combined with the crunch of the chocolate is my version of heaven.

School is finally out, and we’re celebrating with ice cream. Is there any better way to do it? Bring on the fun with Blue Bunny® ice cream and awesome summer memories!


Frozen Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie


1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 package chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
1 container Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla ice cream, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Smucker's Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge Flavored Topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Take 9-inch pie pan and coat with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the butter for one minute. Stir until smooth. Mix in the crushed sandwich cookies, being sure that all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Press the crust mixture into the prepared pan, using the back of a measuring cup to firmly pack the crumbs along the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes until set. Cool completely.
  5. When the crust is cool, make the filling. Take the softened Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla ice cream and mix the peanut butter into it. You want to mostly combine the two, but not completely. There should be some swirls.
  6. Gently fold the milk chocolate chips into the mixture. Spoon the ice cream into the cooled crust.
  7. Place the pie in the freezer for at least one hour before topping to let the softened ice cream refreeze.
  8. When the filling has set, drizzle Smucker's Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge Flavored Topping over the top in any pattern you desire. It will set immediately.
  9. Store the pie in the freezer. When ready to serve, cut into wedges with a sharp knife.

I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

    When I was a kid I had a friend who didn’t like ice cream at all. I never understood how that was possible. This looks terrific! Happy summer!

    Ohmergawsh Mir – after reading your description of what your summer days are like, I wanna be a teacher just so I can experience your zen! 🙂
    But, equally zen-fying is ice cream -though in my case not so much as I am lactose intolerant, but pop a few Lactaif pills and game on! Love, love your use of Blue Bunnys decadent flavors in this dreamy creamy pie!

      Zen is paramount, or teachers can’t survive the rest of the year!

      I know, it’s so ironic. But kids at home = NOT relaxing.
