This evening we're joining a group of friends for a "It's Too Hot To Cook" dinner. Everybody is bringing a favorite dish that they did NOT cook. (It's 102 degrees here AGAIN!)
I'm bringing BUSTER BAR to the gathering. It's a "cool me from the inside out" kind of recipe and requires NO COOKING. This treat doesn't happen often at our house because it has about 832 calories per bite.
Here's the scoop (pun intended!)
Crunch up one package of Oreo cookies (food processor will work), save out one cup of the crushed cookies and mix the rest with 1 stick of melted butter.
Pat that down in the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass cake pan, or whatever size you like.
Sprinkle peanuts on top of the black crust. Use as many or as few as you can stand.
On top of the peanuts spoon on 1 gallon of vanilla ice cream that you've left out on the counter to melt a little. (I use two half gallon cartons of Blue Bell Homemade vanilla, because the Blue Bell factory is about 2 miles from our house and I LOVE that place!)
Pour one whole jar of hot fudge sauce on top of the ice cream. Make some pretty pattern as your pour, just for fun. Lick your fingers!
Pour one whole jar of Carmel topping on top of that. Ditto with the pattern. Lick your fingers again.
FREEZE until the melted ice cream is hard again. I put it in the freezer overnight.
Pull it out of the freezer and cover the top with Cool Whip, as thick as you like it to be.
Sprinkle the cup of crunched up Oreos on top of the cool whip just to make it pretty...and WA-LA!!....it is ready!
I'm going to put the whole thing in a cooler with some ice packs around it, just so it doesn't turn to ice cream soup before we get to our friends house.
Get ready for compliments...and after dinner make a vow to "get back on the diet" TOMORROW!
