This Peanut Butter Lasagna is an amazing dessert recipe that is both light and rich at the same time!  Chocolate lasagna has been a long time favorite in my household… and very few things go better with chocolate than peanut butter!

I have a Peanut Butter Oreo Ice Box Cake that I absolutely love…   and when I saw Chocolate Lasagna by the Center Cut Cook I knew the two had to become one!

My family absolutely RAVED about this no bake peanut butter dessert I've ever had! Peanut Butter Lasagna is a light and rich no bake dish with layers of chocolate, fluffy peanut butter and whipped topping all nestled on top of an Oreo cookie crust.

The bottom layer is a no bake Oreo cookie crumb base but any flavor of sandwich cookies (including Nutter Butters) would work perfectly in this recipe.  I do use the whole Oreo in this base, including the frosting. You will get the best results using a food processor or blender to get fairly fine crumbs.  If you don’t have access to a food processor, you can certainly place the cookies in a freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin.  Once mixed you’ll want to press them into the pan as firmly as possible (I sometimes use another pan the same size and press it firmly on top to get a smooth surface).

Refrigerating each portion of this peanut butter lasagna between layers just for a couple of minutes gives it just enough time to set up before adding the next layer!

This was the first thing gone at our bbq this year! Peanut Butter Lasagna is a light and rich no bake dish with layers of chocolate, fluffy peanut butter and whipped topping all nestled on top of an Oreo cookie crust.

The chocolate pudding layer uses two boxes of chocolate pudding mix (4 servings size each) along with milk.  You’re going to want to add a bit less milk than the box calls for which makes the pudding layer a little bit thicker and the dessert will hold it’s shape better.

Once made, Peanut Butter Lasagna will last in the fridge for a few days so it’s the perfect make ahead dessert for summer parties! I use a 9×13 glass pan that has a lid making transport and storage easy.  We add the toppings just before serving to keep the chocolate sauce from soaking into the whipped topping.

Everyone at my potluck asked for the recipe for this one! Peanut Butter Lasagna is a light and rich no bake dish with layers of chocolate, fluffy peanut butter and whipped topping all nestled on top of an Oreo cookie crust.

The best thing about this perfect summer time dessert: no baking is required … and no oven in the summer time is a great idea in my books!  This is loved by my whole family… you’ll be amazed at how something can be so rich yet so light at the same time!

  1. Chocolate layer says – Spread the pudding onto the peanut butter layer. Place in the fridge and allow to set for about 5 minutes.

    I believe you are supposed to let the pudding set for 5 minutes before spreading onto the peanut butter layer

    The pudding mix and milk is watery until it cools.

    • The recipe is correct as written. I find adding it to the chilled peanut butter layer allows it to easily spread and it will set in the fridge for 5 minutes once spread.

  2. I was just wondering about the Cool Whip. It says 1 1/2 cups. Does this whole amount go in the peanut butter layer or is part of this amount used for the top Cool Whip only layer? Thanks.

    • The amount of whipped topping in the peanut butter layer is 1 1/2 cups. The topping is additional. Enjoy the recipe Janice!

  3. Has anyone tried to make this in a springform pan? Do you know if it would set up? 

    • I have only tried the recipe as written, but I think it would work. Let us know if you try the springform pan Elaine!

  4. Can you substitute caramel for peanut butter?

    • I have only tried the recipe as written so can’t say for sure Val. Let us know if you try substituting the caramel!

  5. Can you use a disposable aluminum dish? Would that affect the quality of the dessert at all?

  6. This looks so good. Could halve this recipe? I only want 6 servings 

  7. So…I love my peanut butter cups and my Oreos. The part I’m not a fan of is cream cheese. Is there any substitute I can use instead of cream cheese? Is is that what makes this recipe?

    Thank you!

    • I’ve only made it as written, the cream cheese is quite thick (and not so sweet) so it does make up a good part of the recipe. You could certainly try it with pudding/whipped cream. Let us know how it goes!

  8. Super delicious and easy to make. I used nutter butter cookies for crust and it was a hit!!

  9. I took this as a treat to our small group at church and they all LOVED it!!!  It’s a little rich for some people so don’t make the servings too big!! Thanks!!

  10. Made this dessert for Easter and everyone raved about it.  A new tradition was born.  Thanks for the recipe!

  11. I made whipped cream instead but I don’t know how much of it goes on top. I put the 1 1/2C with the peanut butter…: please advise.

  12. Could you use nutterbutter cookies instead of Oreos p,ease email me

  13. 36 oreo cookies how many cups is that i already have crushed oreos

  14. Tastes even better than it looks!! Everyone loved it. 

  15. This recipe was THE best and easiest desert to make ever!! Loved IT!!

  16. Is 36 Oreo’s one package?

  17. i live in china and it is hard to get some normal bakery or dairy products here. if there is no whipped topping what can i use instead?
    please help and suggest 

  18. hi ! i wanna make it tonight for my hubby. he is out of city. will be back tomorrow. can i make all the layers and freeze it in freezer the whole night? or just keep it in normal fridge? i m afraid the top layer will melt in normal fridge. please suggest.

  19. Cette recette est vraiment délicieuse!

  20. What is the whipped topping please thank.you

  21. What a decadent treat! I bet it would be a HUGE hit at a dinner party!

  22. No but this weekend I am going to make it.

  23. This looks grest, but I need Nutritional Information before I can make it!

  24. Best ever my company loved it!

  25. Yes, I can already feel this lasagna clogging my arteries…but it’s a risk I’m willing to take! This looks so delicious, especially with the Reese’s cups on top.

  26. Made this for the first time a few days ago and it was a big hit. Didn’t change anything! We loved it.

  27. What would you use to replace the peanut butter if you have family allergic to peanuts?

    • I’ve only made the recipe as written but you could maybe try another type of nut butter and see if that works for you.

    • I to have a daughter allergic to peanuts so I make it a banana layer instead. She doesn’t live at home anymore so I am definitely making this peanut butter one tomorrow. Looks amazing.

  28. Can you half this recipe and put it in a 8 by 8 glass dish?

  29. I found this recipe and made it the other day. It was a hit! Thank you!

  30. 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 ;)

  31. do you use the whole oreo, not just the cookie part?

  32. This looked SOOO good. And easy too because it’s no bake. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/175921929167951342/

  33. about how many people does this feed?

  34. 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!!

  35. 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!
