Peanut Buster Parfait Ice Cream Dessert

  • Author: Karen Petersen
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: Makes a 9×13 inch pan (Probably serves about 12 people) 1x


A layer of crushed oreos, ice cream, peanuts and the best hot fudge sauce of all time. This dessert is spread in a 9 x 13 inch pan and serves a crowd. I make this for birthdays at my house instead of cake.  


  • 1/2 package of Oreos, crushed
  • 1/2 gallon of ice cream (I usually choose oreo ice cream or a vanilla based ice cream)
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts (optional)
  • 1 (13 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Pat the crushed oreos into the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.
  2. Spread the ice cream (that is somewhat soft) over the oreos. I like to cut open the box of ice cream and use a knife to cut big rectangles of ice cream and lay it on top of the oreos.
  3. Sprinkle the peanuts evenly over the top of the ice cream.
  4. Freeze.
  5. In a saucepan combine the evaporated milk, sugar, chocolate chips and butter. Stir together and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Cool until completely cold (do NOT even try to pour it over the ice cream warm) and then add in the vanilla.
  6. Pour the sauce on top of the frozen ice cream and spread evenly. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and freeze until time to serve.
