“Almost” Snickers Ice Cream Dessert

At least once a year, my family loads up the car and heads to Hubbyman’s Uncle’s cabin in the woods.  It’s such a getaway and a great change of scenery.  Luckily, they have their cabin with all sorts of books, videos, and toys.  On our recent getaway, I started digging through their collection of recipes.  I found this recipe buried in a pile of newspaper cutouts.

My candy bar of choice is a Snickers, so I knew I had to try it!  The original recipe used low cal, low fat ingredients to make it more diet friendly….I tried it with all regular ingredients.  It was pretty good…not sure I like the crunch of it though.

Next time, I’m leaving out the grape nuts and maybe adding peanuts instead!


Almost Snickers Ice Cream Dessert

12 oz vanilla ice cream, softened
1 cup cool whip, softened
¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
1 small pkg  choc pudding mix
3 oz Grapenuts cereal

Mix together in a large bowl, then spread in an 8×8 pan.  Freeze for several hours.

let’s get social!


  1. This Snickers ice cream dessert looks so delicious and easy to make. I know that I am always looking for easy dessert recipes and this one is great to make this summer!

  2. It all sounds good except for the grapenuts to me. Since you didn’t like the crunch, maybe leave those out if you make this again. Honestly though, it is very hard to mess up chocolate or ice cream anything! Looks like a yummy dessert and probably a lot less calories than those tiny ice cream snicker type bars. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
