Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Dessert

Tonight we are having a BBQ, and since we are hosting I am pretty much doing the cooking...including dessert.  My sweetheart has had a chocolate craving going on now for a week...sooo  I am making this dessert to satisfy his craving.  It is simple to prepare and goes together easily.  You just need to give it a couple hours in the refrigerator before serving.  This recipe was a Taste of Home winner recipe.
***NOTE: Put this in the freezer like an ice cream pie...really yummy!

  • 20 chocolate cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 15 miniature peanut butter cups, chopped
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix


  • Crush cookies and mix with butter.  Press into an 8 x 8 pan.
  • Mix cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 c. of the confectionary sugar.  Then fold in 1/2 carton of Cool Whip.
  • Pour cool whip mixture on top of crumbs in pan.  
  • Mix milk, pudding, and remaining sugar for 2 minutes.  Let set for 2 minutes.  Fold in remaining Cool Whip and pour mixture into pan.   
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours.
