Our grandchildren love peanut butter and of course chocolate too so I made this with the sole intention of going to visit and surprising them with this delectable delight!
I'll let you know their reaction. I am not taste testing this one for fear I won't stop and there will be non left.
Layers of cookie crumbs, chocolate pudding, peanut butter and cream cheese and either cool whip or whipped cream will make this one delicious dessert. Note: I'll let you know! but I'm thinking YUMMY!
IT WAS DELICIOUS !
This dessert will please those who like peanut butter and chocolate.
