No Bake Layered Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Last night I was attacked by a wicked and relentless sweet tooth.  So, I scrolled through my Pinterest Dessert Board and found this devilishly yummy treat.  

Right after I had found this wonderful recipe, Jake called to tell me he was on his way home. What perfect timing, right?! 

I whipped up all of the ingredients, let it chill, ate dinner, and then sat down and enjoyed every single bite of this delectable treat. Since it is no bake and chilled, it is perfect for any hot summer night (or day).  I encourage all of you to try this recipe out!!

No Bake Layered Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
Adapted From Taste Of Home

~30 Chocolate Filled Oreos, divided
~2 tablespoons of butter, softened
~1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
~1/2 cup peanut butter
~1 1/2 cup powdered Sugar, divided
~1(16 oz) Cool Whip, thawed & divided
~15 mini peanut butter cups, chopped
~1 cup cold milk
~1 (3.9oz) package of instant chocolate fudge pudding mix

~In a large to medium bowl, using a potato masher, crush up 20 of the Oreo cookies. Add softened butter and mash until well combined. Press into bottom of a (ungreased) 9 inch baking dish.
~In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and 1 cup of powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip.
~Spread peanut butter mixture over top of the Oreo crust. Sprinkle chopped peanut butter cups on top.
~In another (or same) large mixing bowl, beat pudding mix, milk and remaining 1/2 cup of powdered sugar together on low speed for 2 minutes. Let stand for a few minutes in order to allow it to harden a bit, then fold in the remaining Cool Whip.
~Spread pudding mixture over the peanut butter cups.
~Crush the remaining 10 Oreo cookies, and sprinkle over the pudding mixture.
~Cover and impatiently patiently wait 2-3 hours for it to chill and set in the refrigerator. 

I hope you enjoy indulging in this yummy treat as much as I did. 

Happy Friday!!
