Summer is so close and the hot temperatures, are already in full swing where I live.
And no matter how well air conditioned the house is, I think most of us would prefer to leave the oven off and instead indulge in cool, refreshing desserts. So today I’m sharing a recipe for No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Dessert. It’s really good!! And if you’re a chocolate, oreo or peanut butter fan, this will be right up your alley.
After such a great response from No Bake Oreo Delight, my brain started churning with other similar ideas. I kept the Oreo crust, but added peanut butter to the cream cheese layer, topped with layer of chopped peanut butter cups.
I kept chocolate pudding layer too, but added whipped topping for more of a chocolate mousse consistency, and more chopped peanut butter cups, and crushed oreos on top.
The result is a cool, creamy, oreo, peanut butter and chocolate loaded dessert, perfect for summer and anytime you need an easy no-bake dessert.
