Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Layer 1: Blend flour and butter with pastry cutter. Add 2/3 cup of chopped peanuts to mixture until incorporated and put remaining peanuts aside. Transfer mixture to a 9x11 pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350°F Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  2. Layer 2: Cream peanut butter and cream cheese together. Add confection sugar and mix well. Fold in 4oz of the Cool Whip and set remaining cool whip aside. Spread mixture over cooled first layer.
  3. Layer 3: Mix both puddings with the milk. You want it to be "spreadable consistency" so feel free to add a little extra milk as it will set up fast. Spread mixture over second layer.
  4. Layer 4: Top with remaining Cool Whip and sprinkle remaining chopped peanuts on top. Chill for 2-3 hours.
