I swear on my life that this was about the best dessert that has ever hit my lips. I know that most of the recipes I post are healthy, but this thing is too damn good not to share.
I wish I could take credit for these recipes and making them, but all of that goes to the wife. In this case we needed to bring a dessert to a pot luck get together with some friends. Always wanting to try something new, she found this doozy of a recipe to bring (original here). She texted me a photo during the day of what you see here and told me what was in it. I had to wipe the drool off of my phone.
Inside of this insanely great dessert is a crust of Oreos, chocolate and peanut butter mousse, and peanut butter cups. It’s literally Oreo cookies, mousse, peanut butter cups, more mousse, and more Oreos and peanut butter cups on top. Seriously, if you may be diabetic…it may be worth the coma. I have no other way to say how delicious this was. It’s not too rich to where you can’t go back for seconds…which of course I did. Hell, it was my cheat meal.
So, seriously…if you need to make a dessert to bring somewhere that will be gone by the time it’s time to leave, make this. People will make noises that they can’t control when they bite into it. I’ve seen it happen.
