1 (20 ounce) package
chocolate sandwich cookies
1 1/2 cups
chopped Spanish peanuts
vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
semisweet chocolate chips
I make this same recipe too pretty much to a "t". The only things I change is that I keep the peanuts whole and put them on top of the ice cream before putting the fudge topping on top and I omit the butter in the fudge topping, you don't need it. The fudge is good to make alone and keep jarred in the fridge for over sundaes too!
This was really good! but i used non fat vanilla ice cream and low fat oreo's, but it turned out great! yum!
My friend's mom used to make this when I was in high school. I knew it as Peanut Buster Parfait dessert. It is delicious! I did find that the chocolate mixture has to be stirred longer (until thick). I also leave the Spanish peanuts whole and layer them over the ice cream and over the chocolate. I have had to give the recipe out to many people.
The homemade fudge sauce is super yummy!! Just be careful, it melts fast. We took it to a pool party and they all raved about it.
Yum - this was the comment I heard from everyone who ate this. I made a half recipe and put it in a pie pan instead of a 13 x 9 pan. I put nuts on half and left the other half without. The chocolate sauce is wonderful. I made up a full batch since it stays soft to use as a topping or to use in a milkshake. Thanks Lisa for sharing your delicious dessert.
Oh my goodness! This is SO rich. I made this for a potluck and people just raved about it. I have one person tell me this was the best dessert she had ever had! I left the peanuts whole and mixed them with the chocolate sauce on top. I let my sauce cool to room temperature before pouring it on the ice cream but it melted the ice cream a litte and I had little "marshmallow" looking spots in the chocolate where the ice cream floated up to the top. Maybe the sauce could be refrigerated a while before pouring on the ice cream. I personally thought this was just average (a 3 star recipe) but others loved it so I gave it 4 stars.
This is terrific, made for guests & they raved about it. Followed the recipe exactly, the fudge topping is great, will definitely make again.
Very good and so easy. Because we love peppermint sometimes substitute peppermint icecream and omit the peanuts. Goes very well with the chocolate sandwich cookie crust.
