Ingredients

Mini-muffin paper liners
24 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
3 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
1 cup fudge sauce
½ cup chopped peanuts

Directions

  1. Put mini-muffin liners into 2, 12-cup mini-muffin pans.
  2. Mix crushed cookies with melted butter. Then spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture into each muffin tin and press down with the back of the spoon to make the “crust.”
  3. Layer 1 tablespoon ice cream into each muffin tin, on top of the cookie crust.
  4. Layer 2 teaspoons fudge sauce over the ice cream layer.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of chopped peanuts over the fudge sauce layer.
  6. Add another tablespoon of ice cream on top of the peanuts. This layer will be heaping over the tops of the paper liners.
  7. Freeze for at least 40 minutes. Then serve.
