Pies, cookies, cheesecake, ice cream sundaes... ANYTHING! I Where can I find the tastiest peanut-butter based desserts in the Boston area?

  1. Cabot's ice cream in Newton makes a brownie sundae with peanut butter and hot fudge sauce that I thought was really good. LuLu's Bakery in the North End has a tasty peanut butter ganache-filled chocolate cupcake. Still, though I hate to cop to liking something as "un-artisanal" as a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, when I get a non-dessicated one, they really satisfy my peanut butter cravings like nothing else.

    1. On Sat., I made my trek to Richardsons in Middleton for their chocolate chip peanut butter ice cream. I'm not one for ice cream with peanut butter cups mixrd in amd this one is very different from that. It's a wonderful vanilla ice cream, pieces of chocolate mixed in as well as slabs of salty peanut butter mixed in. This summer's fav for me. In addition to the cone I got, I brought home a 1/2 gallon!

      1. Bedford Farms peanut butter frozen yogurt ( and... I hate to say it, "but the peanut butter thing" at Not your average joes...

          Bedford Farms "Muddy River" is Chocolate Ice Cream with a generous Peanut Butter Ribbon thru it. Get it in a frappe and you'll have something close to, but a thousand times better than a frozen Reeses Peanut butter Cup.

          BF sells Richardson's IC and you can get the same flavor at Richardson's, but they call it "Chocolate Peanut Butter"

        2. JP licks peanut butter cookie dough ice cream is pretty amazing

          1. Chocolate peanut butter ice cream from Kimball's.

              I love the choc pb at Kimball's they also have a peanut butter cup ice cream which is vanilla with mini reeses pb cups in it. Sometimes that one has too many pb cups though (if thats possible!).. They also have vanilla pb and pb chip.

                Do they also still have chocolate peanut butter cookie dough?? Havent been out yet this yea- that was definitely a favorite!!

                  1. re: hargau

                    Oh no-they had it for YEARS- I used to work there when I was in high school- I used to love when it came out. Chocolate base and pieces of peanut butter cookie dough...un real.

                      Bedford Farms used to sell Bliss brothers ice cream and they are the makers of Choc Peanut Butter Cookie Dough. I think Bedford farms now carries Richardson's ice Cream. Rota Springs Dairy out in Sterling sells Bliss brothers ice cream....I'm not sure where else you can find it but you could call Bliss Dairy.
