This dessert is a double winner in our family! Not only is the creamy peanut butter filling light and fluffy but the crust with chopped peanut included was spectacular. It is a real crowd pleaser- easy to cut and serve. Have also made it using only 8oz of whipped topping. Still great!!

This is fabulous! Best dessert recipe I have ever found. I have made this too many times to count. My son calls it my signature dessert. I love the fact that you can make it ahead and freeze. I love doing this for a large gathering and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing.
