  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whip both boxes instant pudding with 4 cups half & half for 2-3 minutes until it's beginning to thicken.
  4. Add the whipped cream cheese and continue to whip until smooth and combined.
  5. Fold in the fresh whipped cream by hand. Spread evenly onto the crust.
  6. Sprinkle the filling with 1/2 of the reserved mini chocolate chips, 1/2 of the chopped peanuts and 1/2 of the crushed sugar cones. Set aside the remaining to garnish the top.
  7. To make the ganache: Melt 1 cup mini chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of heavy cream in the microwave in 20 second increments, stopping to stir each time. Repeat this process until smooth.
  8. Cool the melted chocolate slightly. Drizzle over the first layer of chocolate chips, sugar cone pieces and peanuts.
  9. While the chocolate is soft, garnish the top with reserved peanuts, chocolate chips and sugar cone pieces.
  10. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight before cutting. Enjoy your dessert!
