Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

A peanut butter cookie dough ice cream base loaded with bits of frozen monster cookie dough is a match made in heaven. Your taste buds will be screaming for more ice cream!

    Be prepared for this homemade ice cream to become your new favorite.  There is peanut butter and brown sugar mixed into the base to start things off right. Then it is studded with bits of monster cookie dough with all of the chocolate and oatmeal goodness you would expect. The combination is fabulous!

    Mimi originally shared her monster cookie ice cream with us back in 2016. I recently made some monster cookie dip for a family gathering and my husband and sister-in-law decided that would be good mixed in ice cream.

    So it seemed like a perfect time to dust off this recipe and make a batch. Mimi's original recipe included cooking some oatmeal and using that in the base.

   It did add great body and turned out delicious.  I wasn't in the mood for that, however, so I stirred in some peanut butter for body instead.

    It was amazing if I do say so myself!  (My husband and sister-in-law agreed!)

   I hope you give it a try to see for yourself!

Original post from 2016:

    Monster cookies are definitely a favorite for our family.  I used to make them when Kristie, our middle daughter, would come home from college.

    Since they make such a big batch I decided to send some of them with her to work. (She always worked when she was home).

    Her coworkers started requesting them so we tried to make them whenever we could.  So, when we hosted her boyfriend and his parents for dinner recently I decided to try to make monster cookie dough ice cream.

    It was the perfect ending to a meal that included Maw-Maw's Hamburger Surprises.

     I used the cookie dough portion of our Cookie Dough Ice Cream as a starting point.  Then to add more flavor and texture we stirred in some oatmeal.

     The mix of brown sugar in the base along with all of the bits of cookie dough was delicious.  This turned out to be a perfect combination that everyone enjoyed.

Favorite ice cream makers

MiMi has a couple kitchenaid ice cream maker attachments for her stand mixer.  She loves them and makes all of her ice cream with them.

I got a cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas. You freeze the bowl ahead of using it much like the kitchenaid attachment.

Both work great and are relatively affordable.  You just have to remember to get the bowl in the freezer in plenty of time to get it cold, but that is a whole lot better than making sure you have enough ice and salt on hand!

Great Ice Cream Storage Options

My mom loves the Tovolo Glide-A-Scoop containers that fit in the freezer well, stack easily and store nicely.  She already has a couple and is getting ready to order more.

I got fun quart sized containers that are reusable and dishwasher safe that I like as well. No matter how it's stored, sherbet tends to disappear quickly around here!

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Be prepared for this homemade ice cream to become your new favorite. There is peanut butter and brown sugar mixed into the base to start things off right. Then it is studded with bits of monster cookie dough with all of the chocolate and oatmeal goodness you would expect. The combination is fabulous!

Ingredients:

Cookie Dough Bits
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extact
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini M&Ms
Ice Cream Base
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Instructions:

Cookie Dough Bits
  1. Beat the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla and salt until well blended and smooth. Add the rolled oats and flour and beat until well incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips and mini M&M's.
  2. Spread onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper, or put in a freezer bag and press into a flat disk. Freeze until ready to use.
  1. Beat the eggs until they are light and foamy. (MiMi likes to do this is a large jar with an immersion blender,  but in a bowl with a whisk works too)
  2. Add in the brown sugar and peanut butter, mixing until well incorporated.
  3. Add vanilla.
  4. In a large measuring bowl, mix together the cream and milk. Gently stir in the egg mixture. (you don't want to beat it at this point, the air is already added to the eggs)
  5. Pour into your ice cream maker and make according to your maker's directions.
  6. Remove cookie dough from freezer and cut or break off bits of cookie dough the size you would like them in your ice cream.
  7. Stir cookie dough bits into the ice cream as soon as it is done churning.
  8. Store in the freezer until frozen.

  1. I just made a batch of monster cookies this week with the red white and blue M&Ms. I love that the ice cream base has cinnamon in it, I am a sucker for anything cinnamon and of course anything sweet and monster cookies are my favorite too! I'm going to definitely try this for the family this summer!!

  9. I love the idea of the oatmeal in this! Years ago grape nuts ice-cream used to be a thing, so maybe I'm preprimed to the idea of cereal and ice-cream! This sounds amazing!!

    1. I could actually see grape nut ice cream being pretty decent! I'll bet it holds its texture. How interesting! I really liked the oatmeal in here. MiMi is pretty creative. I wouldn't have thought to cook it first, but it really worked well!
