A mud pie with a peanuty twist. A tasty summer treat. This is SO rich. I made this for a potluck and people just raved about it. I have one person tell me this was the best dessert she had ever had! Also this was a big hit as a July 4th dessert. The kids loved it and said it tasted just like the popular ice cream sundae! The chocolate topping did not freeze and harden as I thought but stayed soft instead. It will definitely become a requested dessert for future.
The homemade fudge was so delicious it made this dessert definetly worth the extra time and effort. You could use this as a blueprint and substitute any ice cream flavor you crave to change it up.
