Homemade Peanut Buster Parfaits
Bring back that fast foot treat to your own house with these easy homemade peanut buster parfaits! You’ll never have to go out again!
Right now I am reveling in the fact that I have a bunch of dessert recipes backlogged to share with you for the rest of summer. There is mixed berry cobblers coming your way, strawberry skillet cakes, cheesecake bars with summer fruits, and probably more but right now I’m focused on these homemade peanut buster parfaits – and the fact I will have to be abstaining for the rest of summer…
Because well, guess who’s got two thumbs and just found out she has gestational diabetes. Yeah, this girl. *pause for the dramatic pause, and…* UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
This pregnancy was just too easy. To be fair, I escaped morning sickness and most of the nausea. The universe just thought that we should tack this onto the end of my pregnancy instead. You win, universe.
Saturday Ben graciously decided to join me at the clinic while I did my two hour glucose test. On his day off. He really is the best. After not eating for 14 hours, we opted for one last hooorah, as a gold star for starving half the day, and a just-in-case-you-failed meal of cheeseburgers, fries and milkshakes. In all hopes that it would be a gold star, we found out today, it was my just-in-case-you-fail meal. BUMMER! But that strawberry milkshake sure was good.
So I was focusing on some ice cream favorites this summer that would help get me through the heat wave that Seattle is currently experiencing. These homemade peanut buster parfaits are one of them, because they harkin back to my childhood when we would go out to the local DQ after a long, happy week and have a treat. Usually I was a Nerds Blizzard kind of kid – I would suck all the ice cream out of the Nerds, then deposit the Nerds back into the cup so I could eat them on their own at the end. Looking back, that is like really gross.
On the odd days that I would change things up, it was all about the peanut buster parfaits. They were my step-dad’s favorite, and what my sister would usually steer herself towards, too. So with having all the right things in the fridge, I decided to make a couple for Ben and I.
They melt together so deliciously and the swirl is just too artistic for words. Don’t you think?
So please make these and enjoy a couple for me. I’m living vicariously through you at this point. You’re a good person.

I haven’t had a Peanut Buster Parfait in WAY TOO LONG. I need to go on it and I LOVE that I can make these in the comfort of my pajamas. #NoShame.
I’ve never seen a better looking peanut buster parfait!!
Best parfait ever, this is pure torture!
I could bribe my boys with this!!
It’s 2 million degrees right now in Portland and we don’t have AC. Is it weird if I want to take a bath in these ice cold, mouth watering parfaits? In all seriousness though, I adore your photography for this post. I hope someday to have your skills! Great job 🙂
Who the hell needs a recipe to make a hot fudge sundae? Seriously asking 🤔🤷♀️
Someone, somewhere, maybe didn’t know they needed one, but now they do!! I hope you have one, and brighten up your day!
This was a family favorite in our family household growing up. Its got that sweet and salty flavor that only gets better when i dip my fresh fries into it!
Oh my gosh, the fries dipped into it sound sooooo stellar!!!
This is absolutely delicious!! I had my parents over for dinner and served this. They loved it also.
So cool and sweet. I love this. Your recipe is good. Thank you for sharing!
i’ll never have to go out again!
This is an all time favorite of mine. They even had buster bars for an on the stick version. I have ice cream and chocolate lovers here. Will give it a try.
