The peanut butter dessert is one of those treats that is rich and decadent, so it will go a long way and feed quite a few people, including a big family. 

Don’t you just love family? I had a chance to chat with my Great Aunt Ree on the phone recently. She is a blessing in so many ways. 

Aunt Ree is my grandmother’s sister. Over the years, I have made so many precious memories with her. When we talk, we always talk about family – one of my favorite subjects.

I always ask her a million questions about relatives, and I love to hear her stories. 

One of my other favorite subjects to talk about with her is food. I remember, years ago, sourdough starter sitting on the counter in her kitchen. I always thought that was the neatest thing.

Even these small things are good memories. It’s what brings us together and binds our hearts.

Grab a pack of graham crackers and place them inside of a large plastic bag and crush them up. I used nine, but I really only needed about eight crackers.

If the kids are home I let them crush them up. I can be assured they will be nice and fine when the boys get done crushing them.

Next, spray a baking dish with some non-stick spray and pour the crushed graham crackers into the pan. Then pour the melted butter on top and mix up the crackers until they are coated with butter. 

Press them down into the pan and bake for approximately 10 minutes on 350-degrees. 

It’s like a happy river of butter…

Melt the peanut butter in a small bowl for about 45-seconds in the microwave.

In a large bowl, add the milk, butterscotch, and vanilla instant puddings, and melted peanut butter. 

 

A whisk mixing the instant pudding in a glass bowl

Stir the mixture until the pudding starts to thicken.

It’s tempting to stand there with the bowl and a big spoon, but hold off until the dessert is done. It’s worth it. But, one spoon full never hurt anyone. (Cough, cough, big spoonful).

 

Instant pudding and whipped topping in a bowl with a whisk.

Add the thawed whipped topping to the bowl and mix in. 

The whipped topping will be frozen when you buy it. If you forget to set it out (which I do every time), don’t worry about it. You will just need to stir the mixture a little longer.

Once you have everything mixed together, pour the pudding mixture on top of the baked graham cracker crust and smooth it out.

Finally, add the chocolate syrup on top.

It’s really up to you how much you put on top. You can add more or less of any of these yummy treats to the top.

I think this calls for a close-up. Don’t you? This is definitely one of my favorite dessert dishes.

Place it in the freezer for about five hours. Once you’re ready to serve the dessert, place it on the counter for about 20 minutes to let it thaw out a little before slicing it. 

My family absolutely loved this Reese’s chocolate peanut butter dessert. My husband repeatedly told me how much he liked it and he’s a little harder to please with desserts. 

I gave a piece to one of the kids down the street and he ate every bite!
