Peanut Butter Chocolate Heaven

An oreo crust, a creamy peanut butter cheesecake center with peanut butter cups, and a chocolate pudding whipped topping.  And no baking required! Can you see why this is heaven?


When I die and go to heaven (fingers crossed I make it there), I picture a table of food waiting for me.  It will have all of my favorite foods on it.  From Cafe Rio pulled pork to all of my favorite desserts.  Tons of cheesecake on the table.  The best part of heaven is that all of the food there is zero calories.  That is how I picture it anyway. 😉

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Heaven Dessert made it instantly to the list of heavenly food with one bite…


After the first bite you instantly want to face plant into it.  Your mind will be blown.  The bottom layer is an oreo crust.  The perfect start to a heavenly dessert.   My favorite part is the peanut butter layer.   It is creamy peanut butter combined with cream cheese and whipped topping.  But this dessert is heaven so clearly you have to add chopped Reese’s to it.  It is followed by the top layer of chocolate pudding with whipped topping.  Top it all of with crushed oreos and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups ad there you have it.  Pure Heaven.


Oh man.  I loved this dessert.

I will probably take it to every single family gathering from now on.


It’s just so good I want everyone to experience it.  My entire family gobbled this down in a matter of minutes.  You are just going to have to try it for yourself!  If you love peanut butter and chocolate, then you will seriously be in heaven with this dessert!

An oreo crust, a creamy peanut butter cheesecake center with peanut butter cups, and a chocolate pudding whipped topping. And no baking required! Can you see why this is heaven?
Serves: 12
  • 20 oreo cookies, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 15 miniature peanut butter cups, chopped

  1. Crush 16 oreo cookies until coarse. Add the melted butter and press into the bottom of a 9x9 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping and spread over the oreo crust layer. Sprinkle with the chopped peanut butter cups but reserving some to sprinkle on the top.
  3. In another bowl, beat the milk, pudding mix, and remaining ½ cup powdered sugar on low for about 2 minutes. Let stand for two minutes. Fold in the remaining whipped topping.

  1. How much of the crushed oreo cookies and chopped peanut butter cups are saved to sprinkle on the top? The directions don’t tell you to save any but it does say to sprinkle them on top. It’s a little confusing to me.

    • Thanks for catching that. 16 are used for the crust and the remaining 4 are for the top. As for the peanut butter cups, just reserve a handful to sprinkle on the top.

  2. I would agree…this pie is heaven! It combines of all my faves…peanut butter, ice cream and chocolate! Can I come to your family gatherings so I can indulge in this pie?!

  3. I’m drooling! It really does look like a piece of heaven.

  4. I wish there was a lactose free version, I’m torturing myself looking at this, lol.

    • If there is such a thing as lactose free heavy creamer , you can make your wn whipped topping . You will just need to mix it with the powdered sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. I am not familiar with lactose free products but just a suggestion.

    How much whipped cream would you substitute for the cool whip topping?


  6. This was awesome! I had to use a 9×13 pan though 🙂

  7. we had it for easter–yum delicious-had to get it out of house or I was afraid I would eat it all

  8. Heather says:

    cant get instant chocolate fudge pudding in Canada. Can I substitute for chocolate instant pudding?

  9. Gretchen Palmer says:

    If I wanted to make this in a 13×9″ cake pan, what would the measurement adjustments be? Would you just double the whole recipe, like I’m thinking? I’m making for a large family reunion of about 50 or more! It looks amazing and can’t wait to make it~thank you, Alyssa!!

  10. I can’t even! This looks amazing! I have to find an excuse to make this!

  11. My top later turned out a little watery…..I’m taking it it’s not supposed to be that way?

  12. You don’t have to cross your fingers for entrance to heaven.
    ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved’

    God bless you!

    this dessert has to be in heaven, it is awesome!!

  13. These are amazing! A friend made them for a birthday treat and we put the leftovers in the freezer. We all decided this recipe is even better frozen!

  14. I made this today and lightened it up with a few substitutions. I used low-fat Oreos and Neufchâtel cheese instead of cream cheese. I used only 1/3 cup of sugar in the peanut butter layer, and omitted it all together in the chocolate layer. I also omitted the peanut butter cups. It was still fantastic! What an easy and delicious dessert!

  15. I lightened this up a bit by using low-fat Oreos, Neufchâtel cheese, and omitting the peanut butter cups. I also used only 2/3 cup powdered sugar, and added a little vanilla. I omitted the sugar all together in the chocolate layer since I thought the pudding would be sweet enough. It was still fantastic! What an easy and delicious dessert!

  16. I made this last weekend and it was absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. The whipped topping cartons say 8oz net weight is this what is used?
