You can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter

Creamy Reese's Pieces Dessert
(from Kraftfoods.com)

Ingredients:

12 Oreos, crushed,
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 cups cold milk
2 packages (4 serving size) Instant Chocolate pudding
2 cups thawed Cool Whip, divided
2 Tbsp. hot fudge ice cream topping
1/4 cup Reese's pieces candies

Directions:

Mix crushed cookies and melted butter. Press onto the bottom of an 8 inch square pan.
Put peanut butter in large bowl. Gradually add the milk, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add pudding mixes. Stir several minutes until well blended and thickened. Stir in one cup (or more if you want!) of the Cool Whip. Spread over cookie crust. Top with Cool Whip.
Refrigerate for at least three hours.
When ready to serve, microwave fudge topping as directed on the jar, drizzle over dessert.
Sprinkle with candies.
Store leftovers in the fridge.

* For a more fun, less random "design", instead of heating the fudge sauce, put it into a decorators bag, or in a ziplock with a tiny corner snipped off, and you can "pipe" it onto the cake in the design of your choice or even write words with it!

Hi Joia, This looks so yummy! I'm going to try to make it in "bulk" for Tim's co-workers as a goodbye for him. Have you ever used just Oreo crumbs rather than cookies crushed? Just wondering? Can't wait to see you on the weekend!
Love ya,
Steph

I made these for a corn roast that we were going to and EVERYONE wanted the recipe. Just make sure you have a cup of coffee near! They are so rich and OH so nummy!
