The kids were home this weekend for an early Easter celebration. We don’t have any traditional desserts that I “always” make for Easter..not like pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. With not feeling “A-okay” I had let things go a bit letting the kids do more of the work this year. Then Friday night Kalissa asked what we were having for desserts. I didn’t have a plan until Kelli piped up and said, “Make the blueberry cream cheese dessert so I can eat it.” (Find the blueberry dessert here recipe here) Then Kalissa piped up and said, “I’ll make my cheesecake”. (Find her recipe here.) Well I thought that was a good plan.
Then I was up early Saturday morning. I made the blueberry dessert and had a craving for something chocolaty. That’s when I remembered by Chocolate Peanut Supreme dessert and decided to make it too.
It’s so easy…here’s the recipe.
To make the crust combine:
1/2 cup of chunky peanut butter
1/3 cup butter or margarine melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (it’s about one package that’s inside the box)
1/2 cup sugar
Mix that together. Put it on a greased 9 x 13 pan. Pat in the bottom to make a crust. It doesn’t get baked so it can be a plastic container too.
Mix together like you’re making instant pudding.
2 small boxes of chocolate pudding
3 cups of milk
Pour this over the crust.
Put a 12 oz carton of Cool Whip over the top. I drizzle chocolate syrup and chopped nuts over the top.
It takes VERY little time to make. It’s easy and nice to make when the oven is busy cooking a ham and other dinner goodies.
Give it a try. It tastes like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups with the peanut butter and chocolate.
