There is nothing quite like a creamy, no-bake layered dessert. Especially when those layers are chocolate and peanut butter. And believe me, this Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Dessert is out of this world delicious!
Really, something this good shouldn’t be this easy to put together, but it’s so simple, even my kids can make it with a little supervision. (No-bake recipes are always great options for kids in the kitchen.)
I have to give credit to my middle son, who is something of a chocolate and peanut butter fanatic, for discovering this recipe. From the first time we tried it, it was destined to become a family favorite.
And the best part is, you never have to turn on your oven!
This is a great dessert to take to a potluck or backyard barbecue. Just be prepared for it to disappear fast. And plan on getting lots of requests for the recipe!
This recipe also works great layered in individual dessert dishes or Mason jars, especially if you’re entertaining and want something a little more elegant. Not that anyone will care what it looks like, once they taste how delicious it is!
To make this dessert even easier to put together, use a box of chocolate cookie crumbs, rather than crushing your own Oreos. Of course, then you don’t have any leftover Oreos to eat…..
