Have several copies of this recipe handy if you serve this to company or bring it to a pot-luck... People are going to want this recipe! This is my very favorite dessert of all-time! It's easy to make, decadent, and can be made using sugar-free or fat free ingredients and it tastes just as good... It tastes just like the "Drumstick" ice cream treats we enjoyed as kids!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I brought this dish to Easter dinner and it was a hit with all... including my 91 year old father; he loves his sweets. Everyone agreed this is a creamy, rich dessert that reminds you of being a kid and eating drumstick ice cream cones!

Ingredients

1
5 ounce package sugar cones (for ice cream), crushed well (must be sugar cones, no other kind.)
1 stick
butter, melted
1 1/3 c
crushed spanish peanuts, unsalted (divided)
1
8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 c
powdered confectioners' sugar
1/3 c
peanut butter (crunchy or smooth...both work fine)
1 large
tub of cool whip (may use fat-free or sugar-free)
2
4 ounce packages instant chocolate pudding (again, may use fat-free or sugar free)
3 c
milk (can use low-fat or even skim milk if you prefer)
1 large
hershey bar (refrigerated) for grating

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. This dessert is layered.

First layer: Mix together crushed sugar cones, butter and 1 cup of the crushed peanuts. Press into the bottom on a 9 X 13 glass baking dish. Place in preheated oven and bake 10 minutes to set the first layer or crust. Remove from oven and cool completely before adding the other layers.
2
Second layer: Soften cream cheese, and blend well with peanut butter and powdered sugar. Blend until smooth. Fold in 2 cups Cool Whip. Spread this over the crust layer.
3
Third layer: Mix up your pudding with 3 cups milk and spread over the second layer, spreading it out evenly. Take remaining Cool Whip and sppread over all. Sprinkle 1/3 cup crushed peanuts and grated Hershey bar on top. Put in the freezer, being careful not to freeze all the way. This dessert is best served half-frozen.

Note: This dessert is very rich at best. If you are watching your weight or blood sugar, feel free to use fat-free or sugar free products when possible in making this dessert. The taste will not suffer and any little bit helps, right? Bon Apetit' Y'all!!
