Peanut Butter and Vanilla Ice Cream Bombe

March 1, 2011

No time to bake?  As long as you start early enough you can still have a fancy looking dessert to impress your guests.  Worked in the garden most of the day but to celebrate “Peanut Butter Lovers Day” this great bombe makes itself and I certainly needed plenty of sweetness after the garden beat me up.  And considering how much ice cream I eat I have now put an Ice Cream Maker on my “wish list”.  (But, why oh why do I try to make Bombes in Florida?)


Peanut Butter and Vanilla Ice Cream Bombe


  • 2 Pints Vanilla Ice Cream (or substitute your favorite)
  • 3/4 C. Peanut Butter
  • Cookies (optional for garnish)


  1. Defrost 1 pint of the ice cream and scoop into the mold
  2. Freeze until solid; defrost second pint of ice cream and remove mold from freezer
  3. Add the peanut butter and cover with the second pint; freeze until solid
  4. Just prior to serving; remove mold from freezer; let sit for about 5 minutes, then invert on a chilled serving plate
  5. Cover top of mold with a “hot” towel; gently slide the mold off the bombe
  6. Slice and serve on chilled plates

(Serves 4)
