This one is inspired by a classic. Who doesn’t love a good no bake cookie? This one is really simple, but really delicious!

It’s a chocolate peanut butter base with pieces of no bake cookies in it. Nothing extreme, but everything delicious!

No Bake Cookie


  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Base
  • 4 large egg yolks

  • 1/4 cup powdered milk

  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1 heaping Tbs peanut butter

  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate chips

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Dash of salt

  • No Bake Cookies
  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 stick butter

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 2 3/4 cups old fashioned oats

  • 1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • Pinch of salt


  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Base
  • Mix together the egg yolks, powdered milk, sugars, cream, and milk together. Make sure to mix thoroughly! Don’t want any sugar or egg clumps left behind!
  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and heat over medium low heat until the base reaches a temperature of 162 degrees. Keep the base on a low heat and stir constantly, allowing the base to reduce for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the chocolate pieces and peanut butter and allow them to sit in the hot cream for a few minutes. After a few minutes, give the mixture a stir. If the chocolate doesn’t totally incorporate, use the immersion blender to mix it well.
  • Add base to a plastic gallon bag, and put in a prepared ice bath until cooled (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Add the prepared base to the ice cream maker. Make in your ice cream maker based on the maker’s instructions. 
  • During the last 5-10 minutes in the machine, when the ice cream is about the texture of soft serve, add in the no bake cookie pieces. Don’t add it all in! Add handfuls at a time until you get your desired chunkiness.
  • Move to the freezer until hardened (about 4 hours).
  • No Bake Cookies
  • Lay out a sheet of parchment paper.
  • Add the sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa to a pot or a bowl. Either melt and bring to a boil for 1 minute on the stove, or melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Make sure that the butter is all melted and that the sugar is all dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and add all of the remaining ingredients. Give it a good stir until everything is well mixed.
  • Drop a couple of spoonfuls per cookie onto the parchment paper. Allow them to sit until they firm up (they will firm up faster in the fridge or freezer). Chop up a few cookies to add to your ice cream.
