We're having a few of Jeff's bosses for dinner this week. For dessert, I wanted to do a take on Dairy Queen's 'Peanut Buster Parfait.' I knew the ingredients: ice-cream, fudge and peanuts.  I added a crushed Oreo element- here's the final result...

While I haven't tasted the finished product yet- with those ingredients how could it be bad??

Here's the recipe...

Peanut Buster Parfait Dessert with

Oreo Crust and Crumbles


1 package crushed Oreos

Melted Butter (1/4 to 1/2 cup, enough to moisten the crushed cookies)

Stir and press into the bottom of a pan. Freeze until hardened.

Middle Layer:

Vanilla Ice-Cream

Let it sit on the counter until soft but not melted. Spread on top of crust and freeze until hard.

Top Layer:

Hot Fudge and Peanuts

I bought the fudge pre-made but if you're feeling extra ambitious- you could make it.  If you do make it on the stovetop, let it cool completely before putting it over the ice-cream.  

I put the jar of fudge in the microwave for 25 seconds, stirred and put a thick layer on top.  It melted a little but 'oh well.'

Top with a layer of peanuts and add one more layer of crushed Oreos.  Place in freezer until completely frozen. ENJOY!


While at the grocery store, I spent some time scoping out granola and came across this one- it made me giggle so I thought I'd share...
