The desserts of my dreams have both chocolate and peanut butter. So, when I came up with this rich treat, it quickly became my all-time favorite. It's a cinch to whip together because it doesn't require any baking. —Debbie Price, LaRue, Ohio

"This is Debbie Price, the person that did come up with this dessert. I also have seen this dessert all over the internet after I came up with it. This was in the quick Cooking Magazine in 2002. I don't know when the other recipes you have seen were created, but you can tell they came from this site. Thank you"

"I may be picky, but I really have a hard time when people say that they "came up with this recipe", when it clearly is someone else's. This recipe for "lush" dessert is all over the internet. For that reason, I'm giving her 0 stars."

"dessert of my dreams, more like desert of my nightmares. In fact Im sure I will literally be having nightmares tonight about this dessert! ,It doesn’t even deserve the 1 star I gave it! I will never make this again! I would rather eat mud with earth worms in it! I’m so disappointed! First, the combination of cream cheese with pb is just a weird flavor. I like cheese cake, but the cream cheese in this recipe is awful, it would be better with out it! You would think with Reese’s and Oreos being in this recipe you can’t possibly go wrong, but you would be mistaken! Even Oreos and Reese’s aren’t enough to save it. It’s so bad it’s hardly been touched because nobody wants to eat it! I can’t get rid of it. Save yourself money and time and don’t make this recipe!"
