My brother recently celebrated a birthday. As you can imagine, I am usually the desert committee for these types of events.
He usually requests dirt pudding or an ice cream cake, but he knows I prefer to make new things rather than keep making the same things over and over. So he just requested either something with Oreos or something with peanut butter and chocolate.
Peanut butter Oreo dirt pudding seemed like just the thing! So I brushed off the recipe for my favorite no bake peanut butter pie and layered it between crushed cookies.
The results were a hit! He enjoyed a jar at his birthday party and took home a few more for later.
My niece couldn’t stop licking the spoon as she dug in for more. My husband and Little Dude were big fans too.
Easy Adaptations to Try
We just love serving desserts like this in cute little jars. It makes it easy to serve and fun to eat.
But don’t despair if you don’t have little jars. This recipe can easily be layered in a loaf pan, serving bowl, pie plate or square baking dish.
If you are big Reese’s peanut butter cup fans, try using chopped bits of peanut butter cups in place of the Oreos. You could also do Oreos for the bottom layer and crushed peanut butter cups on top if you want a little of each.
For a fully peanut butter version, try using crushed Nutter Butter cookies instead of the Oreos. Of course you can use gummy worms too, if you want to go full dirt pudding.
