Peanut Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

  No one can mess this up and it would be a great one for the kids to help with.  No cooking or baking involved.

It has been a family favorite of ours for years.  Tastes a lot like a Buster Bar from Dairy Queen with an Oreo crust.

Peanut Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert
1/2 gallon of your favorite vanilla ice cream (I like Homemade Vanilla Blue Bell, it is still 1/2 gallon, others are not) set out on the counter to soften for about 20 minutes

20 Oreo cookies, place in a plastic ziploc and crush with a hammer or a glass.

Melt 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter or margarine in a small bowl, pour in the crushed Oreos, smoosh the bag until coated.

Press Oreos into a 9X13 pan sprayed with Pam.  

Place in the freezer for a few minutes. 

Remove crust from the freezer and spread softened ice cream over the crust by large spoonfuls.  Then level with a spatula.  

Return to freezer if it is getting too melted.  

Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of Planters Cocktail peanuts over ice cream. (if you prefer you may substitute pecans)

1 jar of hot fudge ice cream topping (caramel would work as well, or you could do both) I like Mrs. Richardson’s but any brand is fine.  If you would like to make your hot fudge, I will give you the very easy and yummy recipe at the bottom of this post.

If the hot fudge is not pourable, microwave for about 20 or 30 seconds, stir. Drizzle over the peanuts. 
Place in freezer for just a few minutes.  

10 oz. Cool Whip, thawed.  Spread over the hot fudge. 

Place 10 more Oreos in a ziploc, crush and sprinkle over top of dessert.  Cover and freeze.  Serve right out of the freezer with a little hot fudge drizzled on the plate. 

****Homemade Hot Fudge
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup light Karo corn syrup
1 1/2 cup bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate chips
(I use Nestle semi sweet chocolate chips)
Place all in a microwavable bowl, microwave 1 minute. Stir til smooth.  Heat an additional 30 seconds if necessary.  Reserve a little for garnish. Cool to room temp before using in the dessert. 

Enjoy!!!!!
