Chocolate and Peanut Butter Ribbon Dessert

My husband loves peanut butter. He also loves watching this show in which storage units are auctioned off. My oldest daughter loves the show too. As for me, I would rather blog. My son does not mind watching the show but he really hates the sound of the auctioneer's voice. He has to leave the room. I guess my son will not be pursuing the dream of being an auctioneer one day. 
 Since my husband loves peanut butter, I knew this dessert would be ideal for him. I guessed right. When my oldest daughter tried it, she said, "Whoa! This is great!" I would recommend this easy dessert.
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Ribbon Dessert
12 Nutter Butter cookies, crushed finely
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 (8 oz.) package of reduced fat cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 (12 oz.) container Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed
2 oz. semi sweet chocolate, melted

  1. Mix the crushed Nutter Butter cookies with the melted butter.
  2. Press the mixture into the bottom of a parchment lined 9x5 loaf pan.
  3. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla until well incorporated.
  4. Whisk in 3 cups of the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture. 
  5. Remove 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture and place in a small bowl.
  6. Add the melted chocolate in the small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  7. Spoon half of the cream cheese mixture over the pressed Nutter Butter cookies in the loaf pan. Spread evenly.
  8. Add the chocolate cream cheese mixture into the loaf pan. Spread evenly over the cream cheese mixture.
  9. Add the remaining cream cheese mixture on top of the chocolate cream cheese mixture.
  10. Place the loaf pan in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  11. When ready to serve, invert the dessert onto a plate. Remove the parchment paper and reinvert the dessert onto a serving platter. 
  12. Add the remaining Cool Whip on top of the dessert with additional crushed cookies, if desired.
