Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte!

 
 
I love anything with both chocolate and peanut butter so this layered dessert was a winner for me!  It's also a cold and creamy dessert that is great for summer parties, cookouts or potlucks!  The kids and adults alike will love this one!  Here is what you will need:
 
2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
1 cup peanuts, finely chopped
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups whipped topping
3 cups cold milk
2 (3.4 oz.) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 milk chocolate bar, grated or about 20 Reese's mini peanut butter cups, chopped
 
Combine the vanilla wafer crumbs and 1/2 of the peanuts with the melted butter.  Press into an ungreased 13"x9" baking dish.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Cool.
 
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and confectioners sugar together.  Add vanilla and fold in 2 cups of the whipped topping.  Spread over the cooled crust.
 
Beat the cold milk and pudding mixes.  Spread over the cream cheese layer.  Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.  
 
Right before serving spread the remainder of the whipped cream evenly over the top and sprinkle with the rest of the chopped peanuts and grated chocolate or the chopped Reese's peanut butter cups! 
 
Cut in squares and serve! Yummy!!!
