Cool Creamy Gooey Crunchy Chocolate Delight

At our house I have tried to steer away from desserts. Sugar is something that neither Dale nor I need in our diet. Dale has type 2 Diabetes (even though he is the thin man), and I just don’t need that rush. However… put some chocolate in front of me, or within 17 miles, and I feel the desire!
This recipe is a poor excuse for cutting back on sugar, but it has good intentions!?! This is a great dessert to take to a coffee, or a squadron party. This serves 15, so if you make it for the home crowd, there is going to be plenty! There is a crunchy bottom crust followed by layers of peanuts, whipped topping and chocolate.
There are long preparation times required here, as layers have to cool before going forward. The end result is wonderful! Enjoy!

3/4 cup crushed dry roasted peanuts
