Another Dessert Recipe
Just thought I'd share the recipe for the other dessert I made for Bobby's Christmas party at work. It was really delicious and there wasn't a spoonful left in the pan at the end of the evening!
TASTY LAYERED DESSERT
2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
3/4 cup crushed dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 package (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 containers (8-oz. each) whipped topping, thawed & divided
3 cups milk
2 packages (3.4 oz. each) instant chocolate pudding
2 milk chocolate candy bars, broken into small pieces
1/2 cup crushed dry roasted peanuts
PREPARATION: In bowl, mix crushed vanilla wafers, crushed peanuts and margarine. Press into bottom of a 9-by-13-inch pan. Chill for 30 minutes.
For second layer: In mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and peanut butter with electric mixer. Add confectioners' sugar; mix. Add 1 container of whipped topping; blend well. Spread mixture over first layer; chill 30 minutes.
For third layer: In mixing bowl, combine milk and chocolate pudding; mix with electric mixer until thickened. Spread over second layer; chill 30 minutes.
For final layer: Spread second container of whipped topping over pudding. Mix peanuts and chocolate candy bar pieces together; sprinkle over topping. Chill for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.
