Instructions

    Oreo Crust
  1. In a food processor or a ziplock bag, finely crush oreo cookies. Stir in melted butter. Press into a 9" x13" pan or glass dish. Place in the freezer while preparing the next layer.
  2. Peanut Butter Layer
  3. With mixer on medium, cream cream cheese, milk & peanut butter until fluffy. Slowly add in powdered sugar. Gently fold in whipped topping.
  4. Spread the peanut butter layer on the Oreo crust. Place in the freezer while preparing the next layer.
  5. Chocolate Layer
  6. In a bowl, mix together both boxes of pudding mix and milk. (Note: This will be less milk than called for on the box. You want this layer a little bit thicker than pudding.)
  7. Spread the pudding onto the peanut butter layer. Place in the fridge and allow to set for about 5 minutes.
  8. Top with remaining cool whip, chopped Reese's Mini Pieces and chocolate sauce if desired. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.

    Wonder if you could freeze this up to the last two layers? I think the pudding would separate after freezing, so that wouldn’t freeze well. Have you tried freezing for a make ahead dessert?

      I have not tried freezing it before… I have made it a couple of days ahead though. If you make it a couple of days ahead, I would put the top layer on the day of serving.. but the other layers were fine in the fridge including the pudding!

    I just made the chocolate peanut butter lasagna dessert for my guests tonight. Let me tell you this was so easy to make and it was hard to resist going back for seconds. This one is a keeper and I’ll definitely be making it again…love it and your site – keep up the good work!!

    This sounds delish! Do you think a person could use cooked pudding in this? Maybe with less milk too? I don’t care fore instant pudding… Oh, and a friendly “Hello” from your neighbour to the north in sunny northern British Columbia Canada ;)
