I was a very finicky easter as a kid. I really didn’t like chocolate, and while I tried ever-so hard to like hot fudge sundaes, I never really did. It was always so disappointing. Fast forward 20+ years, and I am a chocolate fiend, and even that has only come on in the last 3-4 years.
I saw this hot fudge sundae layered dessert recipe, and I was transported back to when I was little wanting but uncertain. Thankfully though, I have the taste bud of my adult self, and I know that this is going to be rockin!
With the 4t of July coming up, I feel like this is going to be a really good dessert to bring to BBQs and the like. YUM!
Instead of a more a traditional ice cream cake, we LOVE the idea of this for celebrations of all types! A celebration being as normal as a friendly BBQ or gathering. After all, you’re celebrating being together and the gratitude that comes with being surrounded by those that you love and who love you right back!
Thanks to the folks at All Recipes for this simple and delicious recipe!
- 1 (16 ounce) can chocolate syrup
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 19 ice cream sandwiches
- 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 1 cup salted peanuts
- Pour the chocolate syrup into a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until hot, about 2 minutes on high, stopping every 30 seconds. Do not allow to boil. Stir peanut butter into hot chocolate until smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature.
- Line the bottom of a 9x13-inch dish with a layer of ice cream sandwiches. Spread half the whipped topping over the sandwiches. Spoon half the chocolate mixture over that. Top with half the peanuts. Repeat layers. Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour. Cut into squares to serve.
