Horizontal slices of rich brownie cake make dramatic stripes in this striking frozen dessert, which features all the fixings of an old-fashioned sundae -- and then some. Two kinds of ice cream -- vanilla and strawberry -- are used as the fillings, along with crunchy peanut butter and crushed raspberries. Everything is layered in a loaf pan before freezing, slicing, and serving -- with whipped cream, sugared peanuts, and cherries on top.
Serve this home-style version of kung pao chicken and peanuts with a side of steamed white rice. If you're feeding a large crowd, stir-fry an additional batch instead of making one large serving at once; overcrowding the pan won't allow the ingredients to cook properly.
