Giant Oreo Peanut Butter Cup

Giant Oreo Peanut Butter Cup

You just have to make this! At least once, then you will make it again and again!

It's the perfect party food!

I so do love a dessert that is minimum fuss and a sure winner for those in my family with a sweet tooth. I have adapted this recipe from another as the original I had was even sweeter. This is is still ever so sweet, but a tad less and my dessert lovers still enjoyed it. Though, small slices are recommended.

In fact, it would be the perfect bite size kind of dessert to serve at a party if made in a square pan and the crust laid on the bottom only of the pan. Then cut into inch-size pieces and you will more than wow your people!

Giant Oreo Peanut Butter Cup

(Pie size) Serves 8 - 10

INGREDIENTS:

1 ½ c. crushed Oreos

1 c.  softened butter, divided in half

Pinch of salt

1 ½ c. creamy peanut butter

1 c. powdered sugar

1 c. chocolate chips

½ cup heavy cream

Optional: ½ c. small M &Ms or other chocolate candy

 

INTRUCTIONS:

Mix the crushed Oreo cookies (without the white filling) in a bowl and melt ½ c. of the butter before adding it to the cookies, add a small pinch of salt and stir till homogeneous. Place the mixture in a pie plate and form the sides and bottom by pressing into the pie plate. Freeze for 10 minutes or until set.

Add the remaining ½ c. of softened butter, 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter, and 1 cup powdered sugar to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the crust into a smooth layer. Sprinkle with half the candy if using. Place back in freezer.

Place chocolate chips and remaining 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in a large glass or heat-proof bowl. In a saucepan, bring heavy whipping cream to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and peanut butter and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate layer over the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with candy. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hours until ready to serve.

I strongly suggest serving this dessert with a glass of milk or coffee. It is sweeeeeeeeeeet!
