  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine evaporated milk, 1/2 cup butter, chocolate chips, and confectioners' sugar. Bring to a boil, and cook 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract. Allow to cool thoroughly.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together crushed chocolate sandwich cookies and 1/2 cup melted butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan; freeze until firm. Spread softened ice cream over crust, then freeze until firm. Spread top with cooled fudge sauce, and sprinkle with peanuts; freeze until firm. Spread with whipped topping, and freeze until firm, or overnight.

HUGE hit. Huge. Unequivocally the star of the show. This dessert brought grown men to their knees. Never mind dinner, I could have served this and this alone and I think everyone would have...

I thought this recipe was just OK. I'm not a huge nut fan to begin with, so I would cut the peanuts by a 1/3 or 1/2 on top. The hot fudge topping is delicious. I think if I were to do it over...

This is very tasty. My guests loved it! One tip, buy 1/2 gallon box of ice cream, open the package completely and simply slice the ice cream into 1 inch thick pieces and lay them over your crust...

Wow! This is absolutely amazing! I will tell you what I did with this recipe...I made the fudge sauce as directed and it was out of this world amazing! I made my own homemade vanilla ice cream i...

This was an excellent frozen dessert. Guests at my dessert buffet gobbled it down quickly. For their more complex palates, I used Starbucks Cappucino Ice cream rather than vanilla. I also had a ...

Review of item as written: Needed a make-ahead option for hosting a dinner in a location with limited facilities. This dessert is very durable for transport & of course, being frozen, keeps well...

This is like a pumped up version of a peanut buster parfait from DQ! I made this for my son's 3rd birthday, and I am still getting requests for this recipe!

Just like Dairy Queen peanut buster parfait. Now, that I know how to make the chocolate icing, will be switching it up to butterscotch and peanut butter flavour. And freezes very well and ca...

While I haven't eaten this as a whole, I tasted each of the components and it's going to be amazing! (I made it for a dessert menu special at work and couldn't cut into it quite yet.) The fudge ...

Five stars for ease and rave reviews from family and guests. Next time, I might add more chocolate chips to make the fudge sauce "fudgier." It wasn't as fudgey as I had hoped it would be. Other...
