Peanut Butter Crunch (Ice Cream Topping)

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by LAURIE

My two favorite ways to eat this......French vanilla ice cream, topped with Hot Fudge sauce and then this, OR a rich chocolate ice cream topped only with this and whipped cream!! The yield is a guess here as who has time to measure when the ice cream awaits?!!

Very tasty! I had to use skim milk because that is what I always have on hand. I also used a full cup of chopped peanuts as I got a little carried away while I was chopping. The flavour is rich & decadent. I found the texture to be a little sugary even though I was very careful to dissolve the sugar. I wonder if I boiled too long & it started to turn into candy?? I served over Sweet Ice-Cream Surpise (#286182) at our Mother's Day BBQ.
