A peanutty crust and three deliciously different creamy layers form a tempting treat you'll be proud to prepare and share. I usually draw a crowd when I set out this mouthwatering torte. —Inez Orsburn, De Motte, Indiana

"This recipe was easy to make. I made a couple of adjustments to enhance the taste just a little. I used unsalted dry roasted peanuts and added a bit of sugar. I also used more whip topping for the finished topping.

This recipe was a huge hit at my family reunion. My husband almost missed getting to taste it because he waited for 15 minutes after the first assault. I will definitely make this again."
