Friendly’s Ice Cream Peanut Butter Sauce

If you know Friendly’s, then you know the peanut butter sauce I’m talking about. Its the only reason i would ever forego the local homemade ice cream we have around town. Being that the recipe is a guarded secret (no joke), this is as close as I’ve been able to come to it.

(Makes a couple servings, depending on how much you use.)


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • a bit less than 1/2 cup milk ( you can use heavy whipping cream or half and half)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup natural, salted, creamy, peanut butter  [ie: no sugar added]


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan.
  2. When melted, add vanilla and milk. Then add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
  3. Let the mixture cool completely then add the peanut butter and stir well. It will look like a mess, but keep stirring and it will turn out smooth. It will thicken as it cools.
