DQ Peanut Buster Parfait- Life Hack





Introduction: DQ Peanut Buster Parfait- Life Hack

I find myself getting these all the time for family, so i figured its time to share the knowledge. The DQ is way farther than the McDonald's in my neck of the woods. I learned half of the hack from a former boss and the other by chance. I hope you enjoy!!

Step 1: Materials

A bag of Beer Nuts. (Dollar Tree has them for a buck)
A hot fudge sundae with extra fudge from Mc Donald's.
(You could also get it at other fast food chains, but i'm not sure how they do the extra fudge)

My boss would always order hot fudge sundaes with extra fudge from McDonald's, they put the extra fudge at the bottom of the sundae.

Step 2: Assembly

Pour the nuts on top as desired. One bag will do about 4-5 sundaes. You can also keep a bag of Beer Nuts in your car glove box for any drive thru times. 

This has the same taste as the DQ Peanut Buster Parfait and is also very cost effective in comparison. A DQ Peanut Buster Parfait is about 5 dollars, where the sundae is 1.50.  Enjoy!!

    It would be 1.25 if you can make 4 parfaits from 1 bag

    They charge for the extra fudge in my neck of the woods, that's where the extra .25 came from.

    Great idea, nice and simple, but great pay-out.

    I used to make my own Peanut Buster Parfaits at home, but I had to use hard-server, rather than soft-serve, ice cream. This idea will really improve the McDonald's Sundaes (which are actually pretty good as is, but this will make them great.)

    Thanks for your idea, and for writing it up for us.
