Very easy and much enjoyed, however the saltiness of the peanuts was a bit over powering in places. Would maybe use a little less next time, or use unsalted and just add a little salt to them?

Had friends for supper tonight and wanted a simple dessert for two male ice cream fiends. It was so easy to make the two sauces which I did in the microwave earlier on in the day, crushed the biscuits earlier and theN just an assembly job at dessert time. Delicious and stacks of sauce left to have on puds over the weekend. I loved it and I don't usually like ice cream desserts.
