Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna - Marty's Musings

About three times a year I go off for a weekend of scrapbooking, crafting, chatting and eating with some wonderful ladies.

Emphasis on the eating.

We have some amazing cooks in this crowd.

When I saw this incredible Chocolate Lasagna dessert being served I began hankering for the recipe.

That’s Southern for “have to have it and I’ll fight you for it!”

My friend Melinda Smith graciously typed it out and emailed it to me.

My kids were my test subjects. That was a hard job.

My oldest son was home from college.

He’s now a vegetarian.

I don’t know what happened to him when he went to school. My late night snacking buddy disappeared and this healthy young man appeared at our table.

He wouldn’t even touch this lasagna.

So I ate his share.

You’re welcome, son. Anything for the team.

Write a review
  1. 16 oz. cream cheese, softened
  2. 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  3. 1 cup powdered sugar
  4. 1 cup heavy cream
  5. 1 tsp vanilla
  6. 16 oz. whipped topping - thawed
  7. 1 (14 oz.) box chocolate graham crackers
  8. 1 (12 oz.) bag mini Reese's cups
  9. 3/4 cup cocktail peanuts
  1. 1 cup chocolate chips
  2. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  1. 8 oz. whipped topping
  1. Cream the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream and vanilla. Whip 2-3 minutes. It will be thick.
  2. Add 16 oz. whipped topping. Mix until light and fluffy.
  3. Divide into thirds.
  4. Chop peanut butter cups and nuts. Divide into halves.
  5. In a 10x15 dish begin layering. First layer graham crackers. 2nd layer cream cheese filling. 3rd layer candy. 4th layer graham crackers. 5th layer cream cheese filling. 6th layer graham crackers. 7th layer filling.
  6. Frost with 8 oz. of cool whip.
  7. Sprinkle with remaining candy/nut mixture.
  8. Melt chocolate and heavy cream in microwave. Do not overheat.
  9. Drizzle with melted chocolate.
  10. Refrigerate 4-6 hours. Enjoy!
  1. If you can't find chocolate graham crackers you could always substitue regular ones.
  2. If you wanted an extra (3rd) layer of candy you would have to have more Reese's cups and nuts.
  3. This recipe feeds a small army! It is so rich that you don't need to cut it into huge servings.

  1. They all look so good. I think my favorite are the peanut better truffles.

    • Hi, Alicia! I’m glad you liked my chocolate desserts! The truffles are amazing but to make them picture perfect is a pain! I’d rather just eat them! Have a great day!

  2. Oh. My. Does that sound good!


  3. mmmmm. This looks tooooooo good. 😉

  4. Oh no you didn’t! YUM! My family would freak out over this! Saw you at 6 Sisters!
    Would LOVE it if you shared this (and some others) over at Super Sunday at Who Needs a Cape!

  5. HOLY MOLY! This is amazing!!!!

  6. Oh, boy! I could do some serious damage to this dessert if I made it. My husband is a chocolate and peanut butter lover and I know that he would like it, too. I’m pinning this so that I don’t forget about it and I’ll share on FB, too!

    The peanut butter cup lasagna looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m a vegetarian, and that doesn’t mean that I would EVER shy away from a dessert like that~!
    (As long as there isn’t any meat in it, lol.)

    • Hi, Jessy! I’m glad you like my chocolate lasagna! One of my sons is a vegetarian which is so weird because before he left for college he and I were late night snacking buddies! Thanks for stopping by Marty’s Musings!

  8. WOAH! Im not sure I even have words for that! I keep jokng that I sure hope my newborn son is not allergic to peanuts or chocolate becuase it has been my go-to craving since the preganancy (and has not stopped since he came! :-/) I do believe I am pinning this to make sometime this week. Looks awesome, thanks!

  19. Christian says:

    You can probably make this with actual chocolate pasta as well.

  20. Loved your mantle nativity scene with the white candle holders.
    PLEASE let me know where I can find the candle holders or
    similar ones. Thanks.

  21. could you make this the day before for a dinner party the next evening? or will it get soggy?

    • Hi, Christina. I think it would be fine. It takes us a while to eat it all up, and it was just fine. The graham crackers don’t stay hard, but it all blends together beautifully! Enjoy!

  22. it looks yummy!

  23. I loved your Chocolate Lasagna and the teachers I made it for ate it all up. Have you ever thought of a strawberry version of this recipe?

  24. Oh my goodness Marty, this looks decadent, I would love for you to share on Friday Favorites!!
    This would be so good for a family get together!!
    Hope you have a great weekend!
