A three-in-one dessert. Part peanut butter chocolate chip cookie, part cheesecake, part chocolate pie. This Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Delight is a new spin on a family favorite that will have you coming back for seconds.
Over the top? Me? Never! Well, okay, just this once. This dessert has become my new favorite recipe that I’ve created. Layer after layer of intense flavor. There’s a reason why it’s called Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Delight. Although delight might be a bit of an understatement!
When I was young, Chocolate Delight was a dessert I remember mom making to take to holiday gatherings at my grandmother’s house. I loved it because it had chocolate pudding and Cool Whip. As a kid, you really can’t top those two ingredients. At that age, they could be considered food groups. The base layer of this dessert was a flour and butter mixture. Nothing remarkable, it was simply the base that held all the delectable ingredients on top.
In my book, there is one flavor combination that reigns supreme – peanut butter and chocolate. Everything pales in comparison. So when I was randomly thinking of my mom’s Chocolate Delight recipe last week, I began wondering how I could kick it up a notch by somehow adding peanut butter to the ingredient list. The end result is one I’m super proud of. I don’t pat myself on the back often, but this dessert definitely has me giving myself kudos.
I said sianara to the flour and butter base layer of my mom’s recipe and swapped it out for a layer of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie! This base is thick enough to stand up to the other three layers that are added to it and packs an incredible peanut butter punch.
This dessert instantly becomes a combination of cookie, cheesecake and chocolate pie. How can you go wrong?
