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.

  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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

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

  3. 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!!

  4. 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!!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. This was ABSOLUTELY amazing!!! My boyfriend informed me earlier this week that his hunt club was having their end of the season dinner and there would be a $50 prize for the best dessert. After searching high and low on Pinterest, I ran across this recipe and man was I excited. It was not only super easy to make, but it tasted like a slice of heaven. I actually doubled the recipe and layered it in my Pampered Chef trifle bowl instead of putting it in a pan. Needless to say, it turned out great….and guess who won the best dessert?! Me! Thanks again for this awesome recipe!

  9. Hi there,
    What is ‘frozen whipped topping’, and ‘instant choc fudge pudding mix’?
    Would you say the whipped topping is basically choc moose?
    And is the pudding mix like a cake mix? Sorry, New Zealander here 🙂

  10. When crushing Oreo cookies, do you remove cream filling first or crush with the cookies? Looking forward to making for husband’s birthday next week.

  11. I would like to make my own fresh whipped cream. Is it possible to replace the premade whipped cream with fresh whipped cream? Maybe a measuring difference? Thank you!!

  12. This look perfect for a work-birthday treat! Could the recipe be doubled and added to a 9×13 pan?

    This was delicious and my favorite combo of flavors! Everyone gobbled it up. And who doesn’t love a recipe that’s super easy to whip up! Thanks!

    I made it in a spring form pan so you could see the layers and it was delicious! A trifle bowl would also be good but harder to get out.

  15. This is delicious…and was a big hit at Easter. I would say it takes longer than 15 minutes to make…I’d say more like 30-45 minutes.

  16. 5 stars
    I make this dessert every year for birthdays! This year we wanted to experiment so we have added magic chocolate shell for a layer on top of the Oreo crumb. We always make ours in a 13×9 pan and put Reese’s cups on every inch of the top! This is one of our favorite desserts!
