Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Dessert
Do you have a sweet tooth? Then I’m sure you love chocolate and love peanut butter… This recipe is enough to drive anyone wild !!! I prefer to only use the nuts on top and not inside.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup of cold butter, cubed
1 1/2 cups chopped cashews, divided (you can substitute your favorite nut)
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup of your favorite creamy peanut butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 12oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
2 2/3 cups cold milk
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (3.9 oz)
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz)
1 candy bar, milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
Place butter and flour in a food processor until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1 cup cashews; pulse a few times until combined.
Press into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Spoon over crust.
In another bowl, whisk milk and both pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Spread over cream cheese layer. Top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with chopped candy bar and remaining cashews. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Yield: 12-15 servings
