"I tell you, there is nothing closer to heaven than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Amen. "
Ok, so that might be a slight exaggeration. But, combine chocolate and peanut butter, add in cream cheese, oreos and reeses peanut butter cups, and well.... need I say more?
(yes, I renamed it, before it was titled Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert... boring)
20 chocolate cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
Finely crush 16 cookies; toss with butter. Press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. square dish. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, and 1 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over crust. Sprinkle with peanut butter cups.
Note: you can double this recipe and make it in a 9x13 pan... it fits perfectly.
*I chose to use the low-fat or fat-free versions of these things, even though the original recipe didn't call for them. But it still tasted AMAZING! Of course, if you wish to use regular milk, pudding, cream cheese, etc., that is just fine... just a warning though, it was extremely rich even with the lighter versions.
In other dessert-y news, these are entirely too much of a temptation for me right now:
Hey, it's protein, right.... ?? :)
