Peanut Butter Lasagna

Peanut Butter Lasagna is the ultimate no-bake peanut butter dessert. So creamy and rich with 4 delicious layers!

Easy Potluck Dessert

This dessert makes such a great potluck recipe. It’s made from convenience ingredients, doesn’t require any baking, and can be put together with minimal effort.

4 Simpe Layers

Nutter Butter Cookies– for the bottom layer, just arrange a single layer of Nutter Butter cookies in the bottom of the baking dish. They will start to get soft like the Vanilla wafers in Banana Pudding. So good!

Cream Cheese Layer– just 3 ingredients needed for this creamy, rich layer: cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip.

Peanut Butter Layer– the base for this layer is a box of instant vanilla pudding. Be sure to use instant pudding and not the kind you have to cook.

Cool Whip Topping– a thick, creamy layer of Cool Whip finishes off ths no-bake dessert.

Decorate It

Decorate the top to finish it off. Chop up a few Nutter Butters and a few mini Butterfingers and sprinkle them on top.

Make Ahead

You want to make this dessert at least 2 hours in advance, preferably longer if you really want the cookies to get soft.

Tools I Use For This Recipe

9×13-inch Baking Pan– I love to make layered desserts in a glass baking pan to show off the layers but I also love this baking dish with a snap-on lid. It makes it easy to take to a friends house.
