Reviews for Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert
"The first time I made this my family and I was super impressed and it has become the most requested dessert for Sunday dinners."
"This was a big hit! As a Volunteer Field Editor for TOH, I enjoy testing new recipes. As others have suggested, it is very rich and a small serving goes a long way! Very simple to make and a crowd favourite for sure!"
"Delicious but very rich. Could reduce the amount of confectioners sugar and it would still be sweet enough. A 9"x13" pan is not big enough for a doubled recipe."
"I have made this several times. Took it to work to share and even the people who said they only wanted a little bit came back for BIG second helpings. Delish"
"So rich!!! So sweet. A little dab will do you. Impressive to take to parties"
"This was very good! I placed this in a 9 x 13 pan. I just needed to crush up a few more oreos for the crust to fill the bottom of the pan. I normally don't adjust recipes prior to making them the first time but several people commented about the sweetness of this dessert so I only added 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to the cream cheese/peanut butter mixture and none to the chocolate pudding. This was perfect for us! Everyone at the party loved it! I'd definately make it again."
"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."
