Well, the triple digit temperatures continue on. :(  I figured my family needed something to help them beat the heat and I knew the perfect recipe for this.  Doesn't it look YUMMY?! :)
This recipe comes from one of my favorite Country Cookin' cookbooks.  It's really simple to make and it tastes like a Peanut Buster Parfait from Dairy Queen.  To get the full enjoyment it's best to let it freeze for several hours or overnight if you can.  Perfect make ahead dessert for that summer potluck.  Enjoy!

Buster Bar Dessert

1 pkg. Oreo cookies ... crushed
1 C. butter - divided 
Half gallon vanilla ice cream ... softened
1 lb Spanish salted peanuts
2 C. powdered sugar
2/3 C. chocolate chips ( I prefer semi sweet )
1 can evaporated milk 

Stir together crushed Oreo's and 1/2 C. melted butter.  Press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Spread ice cream over the top of the Oreo crust and sprinkle with peanuts.  Place in freezer.  In a medium sauce pan add remaining 1/2 C. butter, chocolate chips, evaporated milk and powdered sugar.  Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.  This is the best hot fudge sauce and it's so worth the time rather than using store bought.  :)  Once you remove from heat let it cool.  Once cool spread over the top of your dessert and put back in freezer.  It's best once it gets good and frozen so don't rush it. ;)  Remove from freezer 10 or 15 minutes before serving.



  1. This takes me back 35 years to when I worked at Dairy Queen. We'd alternate vanilla soft serve ice cream, Spanish peanuts and hot fudge - mmmmmm!! I will definitely make this. TFS!!!

  2. Looks and sounds so yummy Lisa! I will be trying this one out for sure.
