Every year I listen to the hype and commercialization of the first holiday of the new year.

I walk through the aisles of the drugstore and see candy hearts, silk roses, and mushy cards.

It all looks so…….average.

Then I remind myself, “these retailers have nothing on me!” My DIY husband and I had the nerve to actually get married on Valentine’s Day!

It was beautiful and touching and we actually sang to each other. I know, sweet, right?

Our wedding day was memorable and 25 years later my husband and family surprised me with the most amazing wedding anniversary vow renewal service.

The memories still make me smile.

Isn’t this holiday really all about love, through expressions of kindness, encouragement, gifts of time, and investment in lives?

Oh, and maybe, just a little bit of chocolate?

When I saw this beautiful layer cake recipe from Life, Love….and Sugar I thought it was just beautiful.

And then I decided I was going to find an easier way to make it! I made my Snickers Brownie Ice Cream cake in a 9×13 dish with only one layer of each of the toppings.

Treat your family to this special dessert and I bet your holiday will be one to remember, too!

  1. Hi,
    I made this last weekend for a Family BBQ and they devoured it. I was worried the brownie would be too hard, but it was perfect! I did substitute the Snickers for mini Reeces Peanut Butter Cups cut in 4’s and it was AHHHHMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
    Matter of fact I am making it again for our Girls Bunco Night tomorrow at my house!!!! YUM!

    1. Hi, Amy. The Snickers do sound amazing! You could also use Butterfingers (which I love) or most any other candy bar! Now I need to go make some! Have a great weekend!

  2. How long do you think this would stay good in the freezer? Can I make it a couple of days in advance?

    1. Hi, Amy. There’s nothing wrong with doing it in advance and freezing it. We leave it in there until we’ve eaten it all (which sadly, isn’t very long!) Enjoy!

  3. Gonna make this for my husband for Fathers Day this Sunday. I have a question. Are we suppose to let it completely cool before doing the rest of the steps or do we just let it cool for a few minutes and while still warm complete the rest of the steps? Can you please clarify for me? Thanks

    1. Hi, Tracie. I would let it cool completely so the rest of the ingredients don’t get mushy. It probably doesn’t matter since it all gets frozen anyway but this way the layers look prettier when you serve it. Let me know how your husband likes it!

    1. I haven’t ever tried it without the peanut butter, Marisa, My fear would be that the consistency wouldn’t be stiff enough, and offhand I can’t think of what you might be able to substitute for it. Do you have any ideas?

  4. Hello! I was Wondering If There Is Ice Cream In This recipe? It is not in the ingredients list but is mentioned several times in the directions. Thanks.

    1. Hi, Loretta. Actually, there is no ice cream in this recipe! That’s a deceptive title, isn’t it? The filling ingredients all mix together to make an ice cream like substance, which is delicious!

  5. Your romance is far more sweeter then the snicker brownie! Why in the world did you have to post that when I am home with the kids for a snow day today. 🙂 Thanks a lot and happy anniversary a bit early. Hugs!

  6. I hope you have a wonderful anniversary Marty and all I can say about this cake is Yum…….
