Cup of dessert anyone?
I made this delicious dessert from Paula Deen's recipe. I served it from a cup because it looks more like a cup of hot chocolate that would accommodate this cold weather. Although it is not a warm dish, it can compliment a meal any season of the year. The chocolate pudding, bananas, crumbled peanut butter cookies, cool whip, all amazing. But the best part is the peanut butter mixture that is so light and fluffy like a mousse. Exceptional. The peanut butter was just right and not over powering. Paula also added peanuts, i didn't have any at home so I didn't add it.
1(3.9 ounce) box instant chocolate flavored pudding mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup whipped cream topping
4 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup chopped peanuts, plus additional for garnish
1/2 ( 1 pound package) peanut butter cookies crumbled , and additional for garnishing

In another bowl combine the peanut butter and confectioners sugar beat till creamy then add cream cheese mix till creamy, then FOLD in the the whip cream topping and mix to combine In a serving glass, LAYER the pudding, bananas, peanuts, peanut butter mixture and crumbled cookies as desired. Garnish with cookies and chopped peanuts. Serve immediately or store in fridge until ready to serve.
