When I was a kid, my parents always took us to Dairy Queen to get Peanut Buster Parfaits. It was the ultimate summer treat! But now I live a good 5 miles (which is a long way in hot summer kid miles) from the closest DQ so we’ve taken to making our own… complete with homemade hot fudge.
Here’s what you need:
1 carton vanilla ice cream
1 jar roasted peanuts
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pour about half of the jar of sweetened condensed milk into a small saucepan. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add more sweetened condensed milk until your hot fudge reaches your desired consistency. (I usually end up using about 3/4 of the can)
Layer ice cream, hot fudge and peanuts in glass see-through dishes (i used coffee mugs) and enjoy!
