  1. 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.
  2. 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.

I made a mistake and purchased hot fudge sauce rather than regular chocolate syrup. Though I don't know how it would have turned out using the syrup, the hot fudge sauce was a happy mistake. Very rich and smooth textured. I thinned the mixture a bit with some chocolate syrup because it was quite stiff after mixing with the peanut butter but it still wasn't easy to spread. I think the earlier reviewer's suggestion of putting the chocolate/peanut butter layer onto the ice cream sandwiches first, then the whipped topping would have made my assembly MUCH easier if I'd thought of it! Everyone loved this and it was so simple to make. The possibilities of other combinations of sauce and "sprinkly things" are endless and I am sure I'll make this again!


Quick,easy and Yummy! It looks and tastes like you slaved over this dessert. My ice cream sandwiches must have been the perfect size, because I used 19, just as the recipe called for. I used (Dove) milk chocolate topping and crunchy peanut butter. As suggested by another reviewer, I put the syrup/peanut butter mixture on the ice cream sandwiches first,(plus I drizzled some caramel topping onto that) and then spread the cool whip, it was easier to spread, and no one would be the wiser, because when sliced, it had nice layers. I probably added about 1/2 of a jar of the caramel (for both layers) and will more than likely add more (all) next time. I used chopped pecans in place of the peanuts and dusted the top with cocoa. I wanted to add toffee pieces in place of the nuts, but my stores didn't have them. I will try that though when I find them again. I passed this out to all the neighbors..thumbs up from everyone!


Yummy! The fudge/peanut butter part was very good! Used peanut butter cups like others suggested b/c the kids don't like nuts. I halved this recipe and it took 11 ice cream sandwiches per 8x8 inch pan.
