Peanut Butter Pudding Dessert
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1-1/2 cups chopped cashews, divided
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
2-2/3 cups cold 2% milk
1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 milk chocolate candy bar (1.55 ounces), coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350°. Place flour and butter in a food processor; cover and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1 cup cashews; pulse a few times until combined.
Press into a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Bake until golden brown, 25-28 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Spoon over crust.
In another bowl, whisk milk and both pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand until soft-set, about 2 minutes. Spread over cream cheese layer. Top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with chopped candy bar and remaining cashews. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
