  • 1 can Evaporated milk (12 oz.) 
  • 1 cup Sugar  
  • 1 tbsp. Light corn syrup
  • Pinch of salt


  • cup Peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp. Pure vanilla extract


  • 1 ½ cups Fresh or frozen raspberries (if frozen, do not thaw)
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Chambord or dark rum (optional)
  • Pinch of salt


  • Vanilla ice cream 
  • Coarsely crushed graham crackers 
  • Chopped toffee peanuts or Beer Nuts


  • For the peanut butter sauce, boil evaporated milk, sugar, corn syrup, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring often. Simmer sauce until it reaches 225° on thermometer, 10–12 minutes.
  • Whisk in peanut butter, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Let sauce stand 10 minutes before serving.
  • For the raspberry crush, combine raspberries, 2 Tbsp. sugar, Chambord, and a pinch of salt; let stand at room temperature at least 30 minutes (slightly longer if raspberries are frozen). Lightly mash raspberries with the back of a spoon to release juices.
  • For the sundaes, layer 2–3 scoops ice cream with peanut butter sauce and raspberry crush in each of eight serving dishes; garnish with graham crackers and nuts.
