I made this dessert about 4 years ago (before I started my blog) and I made it again for a cookout we had this past week. It came from the Kraft Foods website. I like a lot of their recipes when I’m looking for something to make with few ingredients and that doesn’t take a lot of time. Obviously this is a good dessert, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it a second time. Heads up though! It is a bit rich so all you need is a small piece to satisfy.
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Ribbon Dessert
(Recipe from: www.Kraftfoods.com)
12 Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies, divided
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 pkg (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 12 oz tub whipped topping, thawed, divided
2 squares (2 oz) semi-sweet chocolate, melted
CRUSH 8 of the cookies in resealable plastic bag with rolling pin. (I used blender) Mix cookie crumbs and butter. Press onto bottom of foil-lined 9×5 loaf pan.
MIX cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in 3 cups of the whipped topping. Spoon 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture into small bowl. Stir in melted chocolate until well blended; set aside. Spoon half of the remaining cream cheese mixture over crust. Top evenly with chocolate mixture; cover with remaining cream cheese mixture.
FREEZE 4 hours or overnight until firm. Invert onto plate. Remove foil, then re-invert onto serving platter so that crumb layer is on bottom. Coarsely break the remaining 4 cookies. Top dessert with remaining whipping topping and cookies.
