Peanut Butter Pie Parfaits

Peanut Butter Pie Parfaits - you just can't resist the layers of peanut butter and chocolate in these fun parfaits
I seriously am starting to think I am allergic to dust….
sorry honey, I just can’t do anymore house cleaning.
I know that as a SAHM that is part of my job requirements,
but you don’t want me sneezing all the time, do you???

Last week we added some more shelves in our closet.
I had finally had it with dumping my sweater box out
each time I wanted to find anything.
My sweet husband bought all the shelves and installed them
right away. Oh how I love him!!!

Of course that meant I had to do a deep clean
…and had to go through all my shoes…
while I was sneezing!

I may or may not be addicted to cute shoes.
Definitely not allergic to these!

There is also a small chance that I have way too many shoes…
the jury is still out on that one.

I will not tell how many I had…nope not going to even budge.
(I didn’t even share that with the husband)

I do want to be able to shop again this year!

Peanut Butter Pie Parfaits

Layers of peanut butter pie, chocolate topping, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups make this pudding cup an extra decadent dessert.

Ingredients

1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs (I used Oreos)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups Cool Whip, divided
2 cups chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Instructions

  1. Divide the cookie crumbs into the bottoms of 4 large parfait glasses. Set aside.
  2. Bring the whipping cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips. Stir until thoroughly melted. Let cool slightly.
  3. In a mixing bowl beat the peanut butter and cream cheese until creamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar until mixed in. Fold in 1 cup Cool Whip by hand.
  4. Layer the peanut butter filling, chocolate sauce, and peanut butter cups in the parfait cups making sure to have 2 layers of each. Top with the extra Cool Whip and extra peanut butter cups. Keep refrigerated. Makes 4 large parfaits.

Notes

You could also make this in 8 small Mason jelly jars.

    WHOAH! What a decadent, delicious, and exquisite dessert! Hmmm…I think I might be willing to come over and dust your house in exchange for one of those PB parfaits ;-)

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe at Rook No. 17! I hope you’ll take part in “A Little Birdie Told Me…” again tomorrow!

    Best, Jenn

    Just made these, they were great! I left out the peanut butter cups (too expensive). My daughter is having all kinds of pregnancy cravings and she loves peanut butter. I hope she enjoys it as much as we did.
