Buster Bars

When the weather gets warmer it is fun to have a yummy treat in the freezer. This is a breeze to prepare, a crowd pleaser, slices easily so can be served spur of the moment and a great summer after meal treat which can be prepared the night before hosting a get together.

1 package of Oreo Cookies (crushed)
½ gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
1 16oz. jar of hot fudge sauce
1 ½ cups peanuts
1 quart Cool Whip

Line bottom of 9x13 dish with crushed Oreos.
Spread softened ice cream over Oreos.
Refreeze ice cream.
Spread on fudge sauce.
Spread peanuts on fudge, then Cool Whip over peanuts.
Freeze again.

Cut in squares and serve (approximately 15 servings)

Note: Can be made with light ice cream and light cool whip if you are trying to cut the fat. I opt not to use peanuts, but if you and your family like them they would be a great addition. This can also be divided in two 8 x 8 pans so would make a great food gift when taking a meal to a friend or neighbor.
