Reese's Trifle Dessert

I love getting new recipes from Pinterest.  This one comes from Let's Dish Recipes.  Danelle calls this the Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Dessert, but I put mine in a trifle bowl and simply called it a Reese's Trifle.  Same difference. :)

This is easy, no baking required, rich and delicious, and completely unhealthy. ;)  It'll be gone in minutes.  Here's what you'll need to do...

Reese's Trifle

-20 Oreo cookies, divided
-2 tablespoons butter, melted
-1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
-1/2 cup peanut butter
-1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
-1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
-15-20 miniature peanut butter cups, chopped
-1 cup cold milk
-1 small package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
1. Crush 15 cookies and toss with the melted butter. Press into an ungreased 9-inch square dish or a trifle dish (which is what I did) and set aside. 
2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and 1 cup confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over oreo crust. 
3. Sprinkle with chopped peanut butter cups.  I put mine in a food processor to chop them up quickly.
4. In another large bowl, beat the milk, pudding mix and remaining confectioners' sugar on low speed for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until it's beginning to set. Fold in remaining whipped topping. 
5. Spread pudding mix over peanut butter cups. 
6. Crush remaining 5 cookies and sprinkle over the top. 
7. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours.

This dessert is a bit heavy and rich, but if you like chocolate or peanut butter, you'll love this.  I think my nephews could have downed this whole thing by themselves.  Let me know what you think!
