Ingredients

Pretzel Crust

  • 4 cups pretzels (we used gluten free pretzel sticks)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 ounces chocolate

Ice Cream filling

  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream (softened)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 ounces chocolate
  • 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1 cup whipped cream

Instructions

  • Thaw ice cream for an hour or two.
  • Crush pretzels in a bag until they are all small crumbs.
  • Mix butter, sugar, and pretzel crumbs in a bowl.
  • Pour pretzel mixture into an 8 inch springform pan and press down firmly (I used a flat bottomed ramekin to press to bottom and against sides) along the bottom and up about 1 inch on sides.  
  • Melt 1/4 cup peanut butter in glass bowl in microwave for 15-20 seconds.  Mix in 2 ounces of chopped chocolate and microwave for an additional 15-20 seconds.  Stir until no chocolate chunks.
  • Pour and spread peanut butter chocolate mixture over the pretzel crust.
  • Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave using the same directions as above.
  • Mix in 2/3rds of this chocolate peanut butter mixture into the ice cream.
  • Spread into pretzel crust, drizzle top with remaining melted chocolate and peanut butter, and freeze for at least 2-3 hours before serving.
  • Top with crushed pecans and whipped cream if desired.
