MY REVIEW

We went out for dinner with friends last night and back to our house for dessert. I made this...everyone really enjoyed it. I used toffee crunch instead of peanuts. So easy to make. Yummy!

This tastes like a Dairy Queen Buster Bar! It was so easy and so GOOD! We're not fans of whipped topping so I eliminated that. I made my own homemade fudge topping and covered the dessert with it and froze that too.
