Peanut chews are one of those foods that most people really enjoy eating. Paired with ice cream … what could be bad?! Take a look at these four different ways to serve it – Peanut Chew Ice Cream Pie, Peanut Chew Bowls with Ice Cream, Peanut Chew Bars with Ice Cream in Martini Glasses. Whichever way you choose, it will definitely be your pièce de résistance!

Peanut Chew Mixture
Cook the peanut butter, chocolate chips, Karo syrup, and water in a pot over medium heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted.
Remove from heat and add in the rice crispies and chopped peanuts.
Divide the peanut chew mixture among 8 4½x8½-inch (11x22-cm) loaf pans. Remove 1½ containers of vanilla ice cream from the freezer about 10 – 20 minutes before you’re ready to use it, so that it has time to soften. Place it in a bowl and mix in the peanut butter (you can use an electric mixer or do it by hand).
Divide the ice cream into 8 parts and spread over the peanut chew mixture in the pans. Place in the freezer until firm. Meanwhile, remove the rest of the vanilla ice cream and the chocolate/vanilla ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften. Place the ice cream in a bowl and mix in the chocolate syrup (you can use an electric mixer or do it by hand). Divide the ice cream into 8 parts and spread over the vanilla layer. Freeze until firm.
Remove pie from freezer 5 – 10 minutes before serving.
To plate: Decorate your plate with chocolate syrup. Place two thin slices of ice cream on each plate.
I suggest serving this dessert with a metal spoon as opposed to plastic, since the bottom layer is a little hard.
