Cadet Dessert

This has become a favorite around our place. It is so simple to make, just make sure to make it 12 hours before serving so the ice cream isn’t soft. Here’s a quote from the lady I got the recipe from:
“I served this to cadets during the 4 years we were stationed at West Point and it became known as “THE” dessert. Cadets would walk into our quarters and ask if I was serving “THE” dessert they had heard so much about form the previous cadet guests! There was never a single piece left over!” ~Susan Bowen

1 1/2 lb.pkg Oreo cookies (about 40 cookies)
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream (soften if spreading)
salted peanuts , optional
1 jar hot fudge sauce

Crush Oreo cookies in Ziploc bag very well.  Pour melted butter into bag and re-seal bag.  Mix butter and cookies in bag with hands until thoroughly mixed.  Pour cookie mixture into ungreased 9×13″ pan and press onto bottom of pan evenly.
Spread softened ice cream over top of cookies.  (Or take generic ice cream block, slice and layer over cookies.)  Cover and freeze for three hours.
Spread unheated fudge sauce over ice cream.  (Or fill pastry bag with cold fudge sauce and criss-cross over ice cream)
Sprinkle with peanuts.
Store in freezer.
