I've saved this to last, and for good reason: it is the ultimate ice cream sundae. Obviously, if you're not a peanut-eater, it won't be for you, but for everyone else it is the stuff of dreams. Last time I made this sauce, I nearly had to make another batch, I'd eaten so much before even getting the ice creams out of the freezer. Talking of which, obviously you should choose whichever flavors of ice cream you want. Even if you are reduced to just plain old, same old vanilla, you have a party right here. I made a jar of this for a friend to take home for her supper recently. As soon as she'd had it she sent a text saying "Bottle that sauce, make millions". Well maybe, but until then, here's the recipe:

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (recommended: Skippy)
  • 4 scoops toffee or caramel ice cream
  • 4 scoops chocolate ice cream
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup salted peanuts, roughly chopped or left whole to taste
  • 4 chocolate cigar cookies

Directions

Put all the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and peanut butter into a saucepan and put it on the heat to melt, stirring occasionally. In about 2 minutes you should have your sauce ready. When everything has melted add 3 to 4 tablespoons of boiling water to thin the sauce.

Get out 4 sundae glasses and put a scoop of toffee or caramel ice cream in each, followed by 1 of the chocolate and then another of vanilla.

Pour over some chocolate peanut butter fudge sauce and sprinkle with salted peanuts.

Stick a chocolate cigar cookie in each sundae glass, hand them round and wait for people to weep with gratitude.
