Reviews for Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert
"Excellent dessert. I actually had someone who doesn't like sweets say that he loved this recipe because of the peanut butter taste. It is really sweet, but that's the point! Anything that puts chocolate and peanut butter together is going to taste great! I used low-fat, no-fat items where I could, but no one would know."
"Delicious dessert! I used the new peanut butter filled Oreos for the base and to sprinkle on top and that really put it over the top. I also found a big jar of truly miniature peanut butter cups (about the size of a large chocolate chip) at our local Mennonite store and used those rather than chopping up peanut butter cups. A wonderful cool treat on a very hot summer day!"
"This is really flippin good... I kno i will make (and be asked to make) it again.Its super crazy sweet tho. I will leave the powdered sugar out altogether in the future. I put about a cup in with the cream cheese only bc i had sugar free pb... Its still borderline too sweet tho.We used the butterfinger bits instead of the reeses too.And a little tip for the oreos... I used an already made oreo pie crust for that. It holds together better to spread the cream chesse on top. I just dumped it in the bottom of the casserole dish i used and sorta smashed it down to cover the whole bottom.Still ridiculously good for 10 mins of work!"
"I made this for a family get together and everyone loved it!! Will definitely make again."
"This is delicious! This is the second time I have made it for two groups of people and it has been loved by everyone! This will stay in my dessert rotation for sure!"
"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....UPDATE: July 1stmade it again yesterday for a neighbor who is having a 1st time swim/pool filling up party tonight. I use the 5.9oz pudding mix because I want to make it a large dessert for this US celebration weekend party. I crushed 'chocolate colored rock candy' on top for color (from WinCo bulk dept). I won't be here for the party tonight, but hope it will be enjoyed. (ask if you care to know how I changed this recipe to suit our tastes, happy to oblige)."
"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!"
