Peanut Butter Lasagna
This peanut butter lasagna is also known as a lush dessert! No matter what you call it, you will love the flavors!
What Are The Layers In This Lush Dessert
- Oreo Cookie Crust
- Creamy Peanut Butter Layer
- Chocolate Pudding Layer
- Whipped Topping
- Sprinkle of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on top
How To Make
Step 1: Start by crushing up your Oreos and mix it with the melted butter to make the Oreo crust. You can leave a few out for topping the whipped cream if you would like.
You can use a food processor or place cookies in a sealable bag and break it up with a rolling pin
Toss your pan in the freezer to set up as you work on the rest of the dessert.
Step 2: Now you will work on your peanut butter layer. Mix up your peanut butter and cream cheese together, until fluffy. I used my stand mixer. Then slowly add in your powdered sugar and milk.
Once fully mixed spread the mixture carefully over the Oreo Cookie crust.
Step 3: Now you will work on your pudding layer. Mix your instant chocolate pudding with your milk and whip up until it thickens.
If you want you are welcome to use vanilla pudding in replace of chocolate. Spread the mixture evenly over the peanut butter cheesecake layer.
Step 4: Top with your whipped topping. I just used a store bought tub of whipped cream.
Feel free to make homemade whipped cream if you would prefer that.
Step 5: Then add a drizzle of melted peanut butter and top with mini Reese’s Peanut butter cups! Or crushed Oreos if you would like as well.
Does This Lush Need To Be Refrigerated Before Serving
Yes! You need to place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or freezer for 1 hour before serving. This is going to allow your dessert to really set up.
This is like any other dessert lasagna, so it does need time to set up. Enjoy this easy and fun Reese’s dessert!

How To Store
This dessert needs to stay refrigerated. Keep covered in your fridge for up to five days. It will get a bit softer as it sits longer in the fridge.
I tend to just put a plastic lid on my 9×13 pan. This is the perfect potluck dessert to bring or even for summer cookouts! It carries well if you keep it chilled.
