No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Lasagna

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Lasagna

A smooth peanut butter filling layered between a chocolate cookie wafer crust and then topped with a creamy chocolate whip. Finish it off with sprinkled crumbled pieces of peanut butter cups and Oreo cookies on top.

This is not a typical lasagna. Oh no… this is a chocolate peanut butter lasagna. Now don’t be fooled you won’t find noodles inside because that would be gross but what you will find is layer upon layer of dessert heaven!

The first layer starts with an Oreo Cookie crumb crust. Next, a layer of peanut butter cheesecake whip. Top that layer off with some crumbled peanut butter cups and more Oreo crumbs. Think of those like the noodles if you must!

Add a light fluffy layer of chocolate pudding whip which is topped with yet another layer of peanut butter cup and Oreo crumbs. Oooh yeah! This is one dessert that will require an extra hole in your belt buckle!

Can I Double This Recipe?

Absolutely! In fact, if you are going to a large party I highly encourage you to do so. Plus leftovers won’t go to waste because you can freeze this recipe for up to 2 months. If doubling the recipe just double all the ingredients and use a 9″ X 13″ pan instead.
