Tagalongs® Do-si-dos® Cake


1 box Do-si-dos, reserving 2-3 for top decoration
²⁄³ cup salted peanuts
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (11 oz.) jar of hot fudge
5 ½ oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1 ¹⁄³ cups cold half-and-half
²⁄³ cup whole milk
1 (3.9 oz.) package instant vanilla pudding
2 ¼ cups vanilla ice cream, softened
1 box Tagalongs, coarsely chopped, 
reserving 2-3 for top decoration
2-3 tablespoons caramel sauce
4 tablespoons salted peanuts, coarsely chopped

1. Gather ingredients and equipment

Line the loaf pan with plastic wrap. 

 2. Make the crust

Put the Do-si-dos and peanuts into a double freezer bag. Using a kitchen mallet (flat side), break them up into a medium-fine texture. Peanuts may have larger chunks, and cookies will break into fine crumbs. Transfer this into a medium-sized bowl and stir in the melted butter. Put half of this mixture into the bottom of the lined baking pan and press flat. Reserve the rest for the top of the cake. Cover the crust in the pan with the hot fudge evenly. Put pan in freezer for at least 20 minutes. 

 3. Make the cake batter

In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese and peanut butter. Set aside. In a new bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, milk and pudding mix until combined. Let this stand for 2 minutes, so the pudding can set slightly.
Add the pudding and ice cream to the cream cheese mixture. Beat until smooth. 

 4. Layer it up

Remove the crust from the freezer. Top with half of the cake batter and spread evenly in the pan. Cover evenly with Tagalongs chunks. Then layer the remaining batter and top with remaining cookie crust. Pat smooth covering the entire top. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight. 

 5. Serve

Remove from pan and remove plastic wrap. Put on serving plate, keeping
fudge layer on the bottom. Top cake with chopped peanuts and drizzle with caramel sauce. Arrange reserved cookies on top that are cut in halves. Let cake sit for 40-60 minutes before serving. Cut with very sharp knife that has been heated in hot water.
