About the Recipe
There are of course many variations of this dessert- all of them amazing. But the combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and Butterfingers makes this one hard to beat. Not to mention a crust made from Oreo cookies. Yes, this Butterfinger dessert is quite sinful and very worth every single calorie.
32 Oreo cookies
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 bag mini Butterfingers
1 (16-ounce) container Cool Whip, divided
1 (5.9-ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
2 cups milk
In a medium bowl, stir together crushed oreo cookies and melted butter. Transfer to a 9X13-inch baking dish and press firmly all along the bottom. Refrigerate.
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese. Gradually add confectioners' sugar. Beat in peanut butter. Fold in 1 cup of Cool Whip. Crush 6 mini Butterfingers and fold them into peanut butter mixture.
Spread peanut butter mixture evenly over oreo crust.
In a medium bowl, whisk the pudding mix and milk together. Let sit to thicken for a minute or two and then pour over peanut butter layer.
Spread remaining Cool Whip on top. Crush remaining Butterfingers and sprinkle on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Recipe and Photo Credit: Butterfinger Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lush - Spicy Southern Kitchen
