Meh. Very average. I hate to admit it, but I have to agree with riblet on this one, albeit not for the same reasons (I have no problem using pre-processed foods every now and then). This sounded really yummy, but the end result didn't meet my standards at all. Surprisingly, I could barely taste the chocolate / PB sauce. All I could taste was ice cream sandwiches and Cool-whip. On the flipside, my hubby could ONLY taste the sauce and didn't like this because of that (he thought this would have been superb without the PB). Having said this, I think a caramel / chocolate layer would have been MUCH better. I layered in reverse (in a large cake pan) as many have suggested, so my dessert was covered with Cool-whip. This (I think) drowned out the chocolate syrup layer because it soaked into my ice cream sandwiches. For spreading purposes, it makes total sense to layer this way, but it does change how the flavors meld together, IMHO. Oh, and I think the peanuts would be much better chopped (I didn't care for the bites of whole peanuts - it was too much for me).
Drizzled with chocolate syrup, this definitely "looked" pretty, but unfortunately, looks can be deceiving. I'm gonna pass leftovers off to my parents in hopes that they'll enjoy this enough to finish off. It's a shame to let everything go to waste and a real bummer to have found a SUPER easy recipe not worth repeating. Thanks anyways, JONAR. :-)
