Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter Ice Cream Sauce

For someone who is a fan of homemade ice cream and has quite a few ice cream recipes on the blog, I have a Dearth of sauces. As soon as I heard the theme of this month’s Progressive Eats meal Cooking with Alcohol, my brain went straight to ice cream sauce. Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter Ice Cream Sauce, to be specific. I enjoy cooking and baking with beer, so whenever I find a beer that seems to need a kitchen job, I pick up one (or a six-pack if they don’t come in singles) and then figure out what I can bake with them. When I saw DuClaw Brewing‘s Sweet Baby Jesus, a chocolate peanut butter porter, on the shelf at our local grocery store, I immediately grabbed some and stashed them in the outside fridge, waiting for the Perfect Moment. And this is it. What makes more sense than making chocolate peanut butter porter ice cream sauce out of chocolate peanut butter porter? Nothing, that’s what.

And this stuff is Good. Seriously. It’s sweet but not too sweet. It’s the perfect pouring consistency, and it has just a bit of bite from the porter which is happily balanced by whatever sweet ice cream you choose to pour it over.

Do check out my recipe below, and then see what fun everyone had with this month’s beery, boozy theme–the links are below.

But first, if you love homemade ice cream, I have a gift for you!

It’s Progressive Eats Time!

Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a Progressive Dinner Party. This month’s theme is Boozy Cooking and is hosted by Megan Myers, who blogs at Stetted. For our Boozy Cooking dinner, we all created recipes using beer, wine, or spirits. Thanks for such a great theme, Megan!

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.

We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.

    You do ice cream SO well and now your topping has me swooning! I’d even risk a chill, accept that lovely parfait glass and a long spoon and devour it despite the temps :)

      I have another sauce I make that has some vodka in it–a little alcohol helps bring out alcohol soluble flavors that would otherwise be lost–but the beer actually contributes some character along with the alcohol. This is a good one, Jeanette, and easy to make. Enjoy!

    Only you can make me think about icecream when it’s cold and snowy outside!! I mean seriously! You have great skill with icecream! SLURP ( shhh don’t tell anyone I made that noise)

      Thank you, Jane! This stuff is pretty excellent for sure. And it didn’t take me much time to figure out what to make. Chocolate and dark beer work so well together, and if peanut butter wants to get in on the action, who am I to say no? lol

    omg you kidding me??? This is seriously insane and I want to dive into a bowl of it. This over ice cream must be sensational! Boozy chocolate and peanut butter? Um… yes….

      Jamie, I am telling you: make this. You don’t even have to have the chocolate peanut butter porter. But do use something dark and malty. If you’re a chocolate peanut butter fan, you will be very happy!

    Only you could make me crave ice cream in February. This flavor is seriously insane – which in this case is a good thing. I will be dreaming of this tonight. Wait til my husband hears that the nice Jewish girl he married has gone searching for Sweet Baby Jesus.

      Ha! An ice cream conversion, Laura! ROFL!! This is good stuff, and if you can’t bear to think of having ice cream in February, stir some into some milk and heat it up for a decadent hot chocolate. You’re welcome. =)

    I am not a big fan of beer (at least wasn’t until I met Guinness) but I am a huge fan of including it with foods I cook and bake. I think my first foray was called Coors Beer Bread and that was just the start. I love everything about this sauce; sounds ummmmmm good!

    • says

      I agree–beer adds a great extra dimension to so much. Such a natural in beer, but wow is this sauce good! If you like chocolate and peanut butter, I bet you’d love this, Barb!
