Reviews for Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert
"I made this yesterday to take to work today-I really enjoyed making this as it was (as many have said) very easy. One thing I ••didn't••do was follow the recipe to a T. when I read the ingredients it sounded way too sweet (it was going to have a cloying affect). reading all the reviews I found others thought so too after they had made it. decided to cut the powdered sugar in half. didn't add powdered sugar to the pudding either. Also a change I made was to cut some of the sweetness by adding some creme fresh to the cream cheese. Another thing I did was melted the butter and I broke up the cookies more fine like a pie crust. I knew if I added the melted butter to the cookie crumbs I'd be able to pat it better into the bottom of my container. I put it in the refrigerator overnight because I plan on serving this to my coworkers for the next few days. also omitted putting the cookie chunks and/or the minI peanut butter cups on top because I didn't know how well it would travel on a plane and the top treats would just get squashed plus seemed like overkill.my husband was able to just have one bite last night (and a small bite at that) because his stomach was on fire from Mexican restaurant we went to for dinner. he did say this was very good. I actually think I'll make this several more times. I wish I would've known about it last weekend at our 3yr old's birthday party but I didn't. all in all I think this is a hit.dinged a point because of original recipe being too sweet for our taste as written plus additions&subtractions.ps.....end of 3 days :1.my crew said it was: "sinful"2. asked what they had to do to get a second helping3. said insanely delicious4. bouncing off the wall from delightful sugar high"
"These are the best and decious tins i have ever made"
"I made this for my sister and brother in law's birthday. He likes anything that's peanut butter and chocolate! I found it very easy to make. It was a little tricky getting the Oreos on the bottom. I think next time I would omit the butter and just sprinkle them in the pan. I used fat free cream cheese and light cool whip, still came out great! My brother in law thought it was very rich but I thought it was perfect."
"Everyone loved this! I will definitely be making this again."
"Made this one year for our Family Christmas. Was a big hit but oh so RICH! You won't need much of it at one time, but oh so delicious!"
