Prepare Peanut Butter Sauce and Coconut Crunch.


Place scoop of ice cream into each dessert dish. Spoon sauce over ice cream; sprinkle crunch over top. Serve immediately.

Peanut Butter Sauce: Melt 1 cup REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips with 1/3 cup milk and 1/4 cup whipping cream in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Cool to room temperature. About 1 cup sauce.

Coconut Crunch: Heat oven to 325°F. Combine 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes, 1/2 cup chopped nuts and 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in shallow baking pan. Toast in oven, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes or until butter is melted and mixture is very lightly browned (watch carefully so mixture does not burn). Cool to room temperature. About 1 cup mixture.
