    • ½ cup warmed peanut butter
    • ½ cup chocolate fudge topping or syrup

  1. Make the Crust: Place the Oreos in a food processor and blend until fine crumbs. Slowly pour in the melted butter while the food processor runs at low speed. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish and freeze for 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Peanut Butter Layer: In a large bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping until fully combined. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the Chocolate Pudding Layer: In a separate bowl, whisk together the instant chocolate pudding mix and cold milk until thickened. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes until very thick.
  4. Assemble the Layers: Pour the peanut butter cream cheese mixture over the Oreo crust and smooth it out evenly. Spread the chocolate pudding over the peanut butter layer, followed by the remaining whipped topping.
  5. Chill the Dessert: Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to set.
  6. Top and Serve: Before serving, drizzle warmed peanut butter and chocolate fudge topping or syrup over the dessert. Sprinkle mini peanut butter cups on top. Serve chilled and enjoy!

Serving Tips:

  1. Chill Before Serving: For the best taste and texture, allow the Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, before serving. This will help the layers to set and enhance the overall flavor.
  2. Garnish Just Before Serving: Add the final toppings, including warmed peanut butter, chocolate fudge topping or syrup, and mini peanut butter cups, just before serving. This ensures that the toppings stay fresh and visually appealing.
  3. Slice Carefully: Use a sharp knife dipped in hot water to slice the lasagna into neat portions. Wipe the knife clean between slices for clean edges.
  4. Serve Chilled: This dessert is best enjoyed chilled, straight from the refrigerator. The cool temperature enhances the creamy texture and makes for a refreshing treat.
  5. Accompaniments: Serve each slice with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent touch. The creamy toppings complement the rich flavors of the lasagna perfectly.

Storage Tips:

  1. Refrigeration: Store any leftover Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna in an airtight container or tightly covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Ensure it is stored away from strong-smelling foods to prevent absorption of odors.
  2. Avoid Freezing: Due to the creamy texture and layers of the dessert, freezing may compromise the quality and texture. It is not recommended to freeze Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna.
