This dessert really speaks for itself, which is good, because I had a very hard time naming it. You see, this recipe comes from a friend, who got it from a friend, who I guess didn’t share an offical name, because my friend calls it “Mel’s Peanut Butter Layered Dessert.” So, to me, it was nameless. I posted for suggestions on Twitter and Facebook, but nothing stood out. It’s now just Chocolate Oreo & Peanut Butter Dessert, which can mean so many things, but again, the ingredients listed below will draw you in.
I’ve made this quite a few times now. Still haven’t captured the perfect photo, but I could no longer wait to share it with you. The recipe makes a ton, which is perfect for serving at parties. I halved it the last two times, into a 9x9x2-inch pan, which was perfect for six+ servings.
Someone suggested naming this Seven Layer Heaven. I agree with the “heaven” part, but just couldn’t justify the seven layers. After you try this, I think you’ll also agree that “heaven” should be part of the name.
