Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert




Do yourselves a favor and don't make this dessert. I wouldn't even continue reading this post if you don't want to get sucked in to making this dessert. You see, this particular dessert is pure evil. Honestly, I don't even remember making it, it was just there, in front of me, forcing me to take one bite after the other! Even when my belly was screaming to stop, I couldn't stop myself from taking just one more bite! It calls to you at inconvenient times, like at two in the morning, when you can't sleep, or while you're on the treadmill, or singing hymns at church. You'll crave it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And when it's finally gone, and you think you're free of it, it will continue to haunt you, begging you to make it again. And you'll lay awake at night thinking about how much you miss it's rich layers of it's crumbly oreo crust, creamy peanut butter center, chopped peanut butter cups, fluffy chocolate spread and crushed oreo topping.

Luckily I've managed to escape it's evil spell, that's right, I've learned my lesson. I'm never making this dessert aga.....

Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert
By Taste of Home, Best of Holiday Recipes 2008

Ingredients

20 oreos, divided
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-1/2 cups cups confectioners sugar, divided
1 16 oz carton whipped topping, thawed, divided
15 mini peanut butter cups, chopped

Directions

1. Crush 16 cookies (I used my food processor), toss with the butter. Press onto the bottom of ungreased 9-inch square dish.

2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 cup confectioners sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over crust. Sprinkle with peanut butter cups.

3. In another mixing bowl, beat the milk, pudding mix, and remaining confectioners' sugar on low speed for 2 minutes. Fold in remaining whipped topping. Spread over peanut butter cups. Crush remaining cookies; sprinkle over top. Cover and chill for at least three hours before serving.

Wow. That's an evil dessert all right. I made something evil a couple weeks ago- couldn't keep my spoon out of it. I shocked myself.

Erica said...

Christy said...

Anncoo said...

WOW! Looks good and makes me drooling.

Ingrid said...

Hmmm, I think all you've done is convince me I'd be crazy not to run home this evening and whip one up for myself. My one son would then disown me as he's be hounding me to make bananas foster bread pudding for him. I promised...perhaps I can do both. Gonna read over your recipe better.

It is evil! I'm suckered in! I'll be dreaming of it all night long! How scrumptious!

jscardon said...

Wowsers!! There is a reason that peanut butter and chocolate are such a glorius combination, and this dessert proves it. Can't wait to make it!:)

Velva said...

You are right, that chocolate dessert would have me spending all day just taking "one more bite" I do that with fruit pies and creamy desserts ( just like this one). This would be perfect for pot luck or a weekend treat.

alskamom said...

Oh, yum, Teresa!! This looks sooo good. Even though you warned me, I think I still want to make it. :)

the ungourmet said...

Oh my gosh! This is very dangerous! I love danger!! :D

Joanne said...

You're right. I should have stopped reading. Because now I have bookmarked this and put it at the top of my to-make list. Sigh.

But really, peanut butter and chocolate - ideal. Truly ideal.

Definitely evil!! It looks insanely delicious and I can see how it would be addictive. I just made Donna's chocolate cream cheese peanut butters bars and they kind of remind me of this. Yum- the wonders of chocolate and peanut butter. Yum!
