Drumstick Cake Dessert

Yummy stuff, trust me!
My little kitchen helper :)
On a recent trip to my parents house, I rummaged through my mom's recipe box for some new recipes. I found this recipe from one of her old co-workers and she swore that it was something that I would love. Well, she is my mother and she does know me very well and she wasn't wrong! This recipe tastes similiar to those icecream drumsticks that you buy at the store, but this is made in a 9 X 13 pan. Oh, it is so good and a small piece really does satisfy a sweet tooth. Here is the recipe:
3 Cups Crushed Vanilla Wafers (1 box)
1 Cup Chopped Peanuts
1/2 Cup Melted Butter
Mix the 3 ingredients together and pour 1/2 of the combined ingredients in the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan. Reserve other 1/2 for topping.

1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Vanilla
1 (8oz) Package Cream Cheese
3 Eggs
1 Large Cool Whip (16oz.)
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Jar (16-18 oz) Hot Fudge Topping

Mix cream cheese, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and eggs together. Mix well until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip and pour onto base. Place in freezer to set for approximately 1 hour. Heat Hot Fudge topping until it is pourable. Remove pan from freezer and pour Hot Fudge topping onto the top of dessert then sprinkle with the other 1/2 of the base ingredient mixture. Cover and freeze.
