Tips for Culinary Success

  • Soften Ice Cream: Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before mixing in the peanuts to make spreading easier.
  • Alternative Crust: For a different flavor, try using graham cracker crumbs or pretzel crumbs instead of chocolate cookie crumbs.
  • Chocolate Topping: Ensure the chocolate topping is cool but still pourable before drizzling to prevent melting the ice cream.
