Peanut Butter Cup Magic Shell

I know, I know, I have an issue with making Magic Shell πŸ™‚Β  I’ve almost got it out of my system, lol! I just couldn’t resist doing a Peanut Butter version, you know?

Sit back and enjoy a nice drippy ice cream cone this summer!

Start with some creamy dreamy peanut butter then microwave it for about 20 seconds to thin.

A little drizzle of vegetable oil.

There we go, nice and creamy.

I used theseΒ  Mini Peanut Butter cups that I quartered, but you can chop up regular size ones if you’d like.

Add those little cups to your peanut butter and mix.

Break out your favorite cones.

We kinda like these sugar cones πŸ™‚Β  Scoop your ice cream on top and drizzle with your magic shell!

Happy happy boy πŸ™‚


Peanut Butter Magic Shell


  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • A handful of chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Cups


  1. Place peanut butter into microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for 20-30 seconds until liquid like. Stir in vegetable oil until well combined then stir in chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Drizzle over firm cold ice cream and let harden. The peanut butter shell works best if you place back in the freezer once you drizzle it over your ice cream for a few minutes.

Makes a heaping 1/2 cup

    I recently tried both the chocolate and the cookies and cream Magic Shell and they were both a hit! I’ve also considered making it with butterscotch chips, but didn’t think of peanut butter! Yum! Does this actually harden though? (I would think peanut butter chips would harden better than real peanut butter, although that might not be as tasty.)

      Hi Terri, it doesn’t get as crunchy as the chocolate and cookies and cream version, but it does harden up. I place it back in the freezer for a few minutes after I pour it on the ice cream to help it out a little πŸ™‚

    BOOYAH! I’m not the biggest chocolate topping fan. It’s yummy and fun, just not my favorite topping. Peanut Butter on the other hand, well we were meant to be together, forever. πŸ˜‰

    Best photos ever with the ice cream dripping down the sides of the cone onto his hand! That’s how ice cream should be. Bring on all the Magic Shell you want. They all look so yummy.

    Keep writing…

    Oh, heaven! If I was making this, I’m not sure how many of those little Reese’s minis would make it into the magic shell. I kind of have a problem!

    I am obsessed with magic shell. I know just what to do with this. It is calling for chocolate ice cream.

    I’m thinking it would harden a little more if you use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.

    Has anyone tried Coconut Oil instead of the Vegetable to make it harden quicker?

    Can one make Magic Shell with almond butter, cashew butter, soy butter or sunflower seed butter?
