Ready for your mouth to water?

Okay, before we get to today's treat, I want to show you a few pictures to get you ready.
 Mmmm....Look at all that chocolate!
 All that chocolaty sauce, just melting in your mouth!
 With just a light sprinkling of nuts...Yumm!
I just love drumsticks! They are my favorite ice cream treat. They or soooo good! Is your mouth watering yet? 
 Mmmm how about cheescake?

Do you like cheesecake?
 Isn't there something about cheesecake that just can't be beat?
As Hedy Lamarr says, "Because you don't live near a bakery doesn't mean you have to go without cheesecake."

Now you might think I'm being over dramatic and lame, and although that might be true, I had a purpose for all that cheesiness. I just was wanting to prepare you for today's treat. But first, let's do a little math.
As you can clearly see, drumsticks plus cheesecake equal drumstick cake, with just so happens to be today's treat!
I think the best part about this dessert, is that it is so simple and easy to make. And although it has cheesecake flavor, there is no baking, cooling, or cracking.
So here is how it's done:

First put on some tunes. Baking is always more fun when you have good music.
 Next you'll need to get out the recipe. As you can see our recipe has been well loved.
 Make the crust and press into the pan saving 1/2 cup for the topping.

 Make the filling.

 Drizzle chocolate sauce over the filling
 and gently mix it in, creating a marbleized look.
Sprinkle that 1/2 Cup of crust crumbs that you saved over the top.
Freeze, cut, and....
 EAT! It's a good idea to do this step when there are others around, just in case you are tempted to eat the whole pan.

Drumstick Cake
2 1/2 Cups of Oreo Crumbs 
1/2 Cup Crushed Peanuts
3 Tbsp. of Melted Butter

8 Oz. Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter 
1/2 Cup of Sugar
4 Eggs
1 Large Tub of Cool-Whip
 1/2 Cup of Chocolate Sauce

Mix all of the crust ingredients together. As I stated above, set aside 1/2 Cup. Press the rest into a 9x13 inch pan. For the filling cream the first three ingredients together. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well in between. Fold in the Cool-Whip. Pour over Crust. Drizzle chocolate sauce over top and marble it through the filling (it works best to use a butter knife for this). Sprinkle that 1/2 cup of crust crumbs over top. And like a said before, freeze, cut, and eat.
