Here's a fun, layered dessert that will appeal to all ages. If you want it even nuttier, you can use chunky peanut butter, and if you're not a fan of cashews, substitute your favorite nut. —Barbara Schindler, Napoleon, Ohio

"I don't have a food processor. Can the crust be made with a blender, mixer, or ??? Any advice would be appreciated."

MY REVIEW

"Since this recipe was posted, I have made it three times! (in less than a 10 days!)

Always rave reviews. I didn't have cashews the firs two times, so I used almonds. Great reviews from the family and church folks. I used chopped peanut butter cups to garnish since my son is not a fan of nuts."

"Made mine with pecans. Awesome taste, easy recipe. This is such a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Will be making this one again and again. The only problem is one cannot give this 10 stars.."
