Miss Lillian's Peanut Dessert

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by bullwinkle

I got this recipe out of a band fundraiser cookbook when my son was in Jr.Band. The times listed are a guess. Cooking time doesn't include the 3-4 hour chill time.

Well, I could barely get a rating out of DH because he was so busy devouring this dessert. This recipe looks daunting, but once you get going it is very easy and quick. I used one bowl for everything. Non-fat cream cheese, sugar free/fat free Cool Whip and puddings. I used 2 chocolate puddings and a 12 oz carton of Cool Whip. Otherwise followed recipe exactly. I was a bit lazy at the end and just sprinkled some chocolate chips on the top. This makes a great presentation with the layers. Kudos to bullwinkle and Miss Lillian.
