Recipe Category: Miscellaneous
Submitted By: Caylen - Wetumpka, AL
Ingredients: 1 package (18 ounces) cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 gallon cookies and cream ice cream, softened
1 1/2 cups salted or unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
2/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Directions: In a large bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter; set aside 1 cup. Press remaining crumbs into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Spread with ice cream. Layer with peanuts, ice cream toppings and whipped topping; sprinkle with reserved crumbs.

Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving.
Notes: We have found that freezing the dessert for 15 minutes between adding the different layers is beneficial. This dessert is my parents all time favorite frozen treat!
