OH YUM...This is AWESOME!!! I made as written, but a smaller version, using mini ice cream sandwiches (10), layered in a loaf pan (that I lined w/ plastic wrap for easier removal/cutting), w/ an 8oz. whipped topping, and just eyeballed the caramel sauce and peanuts. We did drizzled it w/ chocolate sauce just before eating it and that really put it over the top! I would be totally confident in making this for company...it's THAT good...A definite keeper! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

The layers slide around and fall apart while trying to eat it. My family thought that even a little bit of caramel made it too rich. Would not make it again or recommend it to anyone. Read More

This is a great recipe! I "baked" it in a clear glass pan and used hot fudge topping instead of caramel.I put the peanuts in a little baggie and crushed them before adding and also added half cherries to the top layer.It not only looked delicious it tasted heavenly! Read More

This is so easy & delicious. I drizzled chocolate sauce over the bottom layer and instead of peanuts I used skor bits. When serving you can dress it up with some raspberries or sliced strawberries for a bit of colour. I made it for a family reunion & everybody raved about it. I'll be sure to make it again. Read More

Cannot go wrong--total winner! I used one layer of caramel sauce and on another layer fudge sauce. I added Heath toffee bits to each layer. There was not a bite left and we were all discussing the variations you could make of this according to your tastes. I will take this to every party this summer. Read More

This cake garnered so much praise and was so easy to make! I made it for a birthday party and was able to assemble it as the party was starting. I made the caramel myself with butter vanilla ice cream a bit of brown sugar (for color) and fructose to lower the blood sugar impact of this cake. We omitted the peanuts. I sprinkled confetti candies on top for a pretty presentation and it was a hit! Read More

Instead of making one big 13x9 cake I used 2 smaller cake pans to make 2 smaller cakes! I wrapped them well and put them in the freezer for unexpected company. DELICIOUS!!!!!! Read More
