Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Dessert June 27, 2012

This recipe’s got a long title.  I could leave out the “No Bake” part of it, but since the weatherman says it’s going to be 90+ for the next week, I’m leaving it in so you know it something that can be whipped up without turning the oven on.  It turned out delicious and I would recommend this recipe to all those chocolate-peanut butter lovers out there.  It has a delicious oreo crust (you can’t go wrong with that!) with a cream cheese peanut butter sweetened layer that is topped with chopped peanut butter cups then a layer of chocolate pudding and to top it all off a nice amount of oreo crumble.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Dessert

20 Oreo cookies, divided

5 tablespoons butter, softened

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided

15-20 miniature peanut butter cups or 5-7 regular size, chopped

1 cup cold milk

1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix

Crush 16 cookies; toss with the butter.  Press into an ungreased 9-inch square dish; set aside.

Beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 cup confectioners’ sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.  Fold in half of the whipped topping.  Spread over crust.  Sprinkle with chopped peanut butter cups.

In another large bowl (or just use one of the bowls that you tossed the cookies in or made the cream cheese mixture to prevent soooo many dishes, no need to wash), beat the milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes.  Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.  Fold in remaining whipped topping.  Spread over peanut butter cups. Crush remaining cookies; sprinkle over the top. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours.

    I have got to make this. Aside from it’s obviously delicious taste, it’s so easy to make! I could make this like right now!

  2. Raquel T Says:

    It says the confectioner’s sugar is divided but then in the instructions it isn’t divided. Is half of it supposed to go in each layer?

  3. stacielk Says:

    I think that’s because the original recipe added another 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar to the pudding mixture, but I omitted that 1/2 cup b/c the dessert was sweet enough in my mind! I have edited the ingredient list now and took out ‘divided’. Would love to hear if you tried this dessert. It was sooo good from when I made it!
