How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Lasagna
You may remember this Chocolate Chip Cookie Lasagna recipe from awhile back. No bake dessert with layers of chocolate chip cookies, creamy cheesecake, fudge pudding, and whipped cream! Today’s recipe is a variation of that sweet treat!
Start by choosing your favorite cookie for the crust. I chose Nutter Butters for their peanut butter flavor, but Oreo cookies are also a great choice!
Crush cookies in a food processor to get a fine crumb, then add melted butter. Press the cookies into a 9×13-inch baking dish. Set aside.
For the peanut butter layer, beat the softened cream cheese with peanut butter and powdered sugar for several minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Once fluffy, fold in Cool Whip.
Spread over cookie layer using an offset spatula. Set aside.
For the chocolate layer, whisk together chocolate pudding with milk until smooth. Two things to note:
- Use INSTANT pudding mix, not the cook and serve variety.
- Use less milk to make this thick (be sure to use accurate measurements as detailed below in the recipe card)
Once your pudding mix is fully whisked, pour over peanut butter layer.
Top the pudding with Cool Whip. I also added some peanut butter chips, mini chocolate chips, and mini peanut butter cups.
Refrigerate for about 3 hours until set (or overnight). Slice and enjoy!
