Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 10 servings


For the Crust

  • 25 Nutter Butter cookies
  • 5 Tbsp butter, melted

For the Ice Cream

  • 3 cups coca-cola
  • 1 package unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup

For the Topping

  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 5 Nutter Butter cookies, crumbled


For the crust

  • In a food processor or a large ziplock bag, crush cookies until crumbly. Transfer to a bowl and combine with the melted butter. Press into a square baking tin lined with parchment paper. Set aside.

For the ice cream

  • To a large skillet, add the Coca-Cola and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until the soda is reduced to 1 cup, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a small bowl add water. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water. In another small bowl combine the cornstarch with a few tablespoons of the milk and whisk.
  • In a medium saucepan combine the remaining milk, heavy cream, evaporated milk, sugar and light corn syrup. Bring the mixture to a boil and whisk in the cornstarch slurry. Bring the mixture back to a boil for 1 minute and remove from the heat. Whisk in the coca cola mixture and the gelatin and whisk until the gelatin is fully combined.
  • Transfer the ice cream to a bowl sitting on top of a bowl of ice. Let chill until room temperature.
  • Pour the ice cream into ice cube trays and place in the freezer to freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • Once cubes are solid, place in a food processor and process until creamy. Pour the ice cream onto the crust and freeze until solid, another 4 hours.

For the topping

  • Remove the pan from the freezer and melt peanut butter in a small bowl. Drizzle over the top of the ice cream. Sprinkle with crumbled cookies. Cut in to squares and serve.
