I made this yummy dessert for a dinner party last week and I just had to share it with y'all! It was a cinch to whip up (no baking required) and it included my favorite 2 treats: peanut butter and oreos. It's basically a trifle, with different layers of oreos crumbs, peanut butter mousse, reeses cups, and then a chocolate pudding. Is your mouther watering yet?
I would definitely recommend trying this dessert out -- it serves about 12, so it would be great for a work party or big group event. You could even serve the layers up in mini bowls for individual servings!
(Quick tip - make sure you set aside chilling time - 3 hours.)
