Ingredients
  • For the ice cream:
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted salted peanuts, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanut butter cups, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate-covered peanuts, plus more for topping
  • 1/4 cup candy-coated peanut butter pieces, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped peanut butter cookies
  • 1 pint chocolate ice cream, softened
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 14 -ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • To assemble:
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 to 6 bananas, split lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup shredded sweetened coconut, toasted
Directions

Flavor the ice cream: Put the vanilla ice cream in a stand mixer; beat with the paddle attachment on low speed until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add half each of the peanuts, peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered peanuts, peanut butter pieces and chopped cookies and mix until combined. Transfer to a container. Repeat with the chocolate ice cream and the remaining mix-ins; transfer to another container. Cover both containers and freeze until the ice cream is firm, at least 2 hours.

Make the sauce: Combine the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, peanut butter and whole milk in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, whisking, until the chocolate melts and the sauce is smooth; keep warm.

Assemble the sundaes: Beat the heavy cream and sugar with a mixer until soft peaks form. Arrange the bananas in shallow dishes. Drizzle with some of the sauce. Add a few scoops of the ice cream, then top with peanut butter cups, more sauce, whipped cream, peanuts, chocolate-covered peanuts, peanut butter pieces and coconut.
