Ingredients

  • 1 package (about 14.4 oz) chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 12 oz Cool Whip or whipped topping
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 8-10 peanut butter cups, chopped

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, creamy peanut butter, and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Fold in half of the whipped topping until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter with the chocolate graham cracker crumbs until evenly moistened.
  4. Press half of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish to form a crust.
  5. Spread half of the peanut butter mixture evenly over the crust.
  6. Sprinkle half of the mini chocolate chips and chopped peanut butter cups over the peanut butter layer.
  7. Repeat the layers: remaining graham cracker mixture, peanut butter mixture, and top with the remaining mini chocolate chips and chopped peanut butter cups.
  8. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the layers to set.
  9. Before serving, top with the remaining whipped topping and garnish with additional mini chocolate chips and chopped peanut butter cups if desired.

Helpful Tips

  • Ensure the cream cheese is fully softened before mixing to achieve a smooth consistency.
  • Chilling the dessert overnight yields the best results, as it allows the layers to set firmly.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the lasagna into squares for a clean presentation.

Substitutions/Variations

  • Swap the chocolate graham crackers with regular graham crackers or vanilla wafers for a different flavor profile.
  • For a nutty twist, add chopped peanuts or a drizzle of melted peanut butter between the layers.
  • Experiment with different chocolate candies, such as Reese’s Pieces or M&M’s, for added texture and color.
