Would you like something totally delicious?! Then try this Peanut Butter Sauce for Ice Cream. It has to be the easiest ice cream topping out there because it uses pantry basics I bet you already have sitting in your pantry as we speak?
It's a cross between a peanut butter sauce and a caramel sauce, and when drizzled over some rich, chocolate ice cream the results are out-of-this-world!

Step#1: Add Water and Sugar
You'll simmer the water and sugar in a saucepot with a high profile until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear.
Step#2: Add the Peanut Butter
Make sure your peanut butter is pure peanut butter without a ton of other ingredients in it! It should only have Peanuts and or Salt listed as ingredients.
Otherwise, it might affect its ability to work correctly in this recipe. The heat from the sugar water will easily melt the peanut butter when you whisk it in. For a chunkier sauce use chunky peanut butter!
Step#3: Heat Until Syrupy!
Continue to whisk the sauce on medium-high. It will bubble and rise up like a witch's brew! (This is why you want a high-profile pot so it doesn't boil over). This is the sugar water caramelizing and you want to make sure you give it enough time to work its magic.
It could take 5-10 minutes. Continue to whisk constantly and don't walk away from it! Otherwise, it will scorch and burn.
Step#4: Check for Consistency
Once your sauce reaches a thick consistency where it will coat the back of a spoon and drizzle, it's ready! Serve at warm to room temperature. Otherwise, the hot caramel aspect of this sauce will melt the ice cream too quickly!
Serve over some chocolate ice cream and top with peanuts and chocolate chunks for the ultimate experience!
