yummy goodness

Warning: This post is completely not wedding-related!

One of my favorite bloggers, Cyndi, over at Southerndaze, is constantly posting amazing recipes. I'm so glad that she actually remembers to take pictures when she's making these awesome desserts, but I can't promise that I'll do the same.

I'm going to share one that I tried recently for the 4th and loved! My FIL actually finished it off for breakfast the next morning. It's the easiest dessert I've ever made-- it's no bake. Try it and you'll love it-- especially if you love peanut butter and chocolate!

20 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Press crushed cookies into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan, reserving a few for decoration. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Stir in the peanut butter until well blended, then fold in the whipped topping. Spread over the crushed cookie base, sprinkle the remaining cookie chunks on top, and freeze for 1 to 2 hours. Thaw 10 to 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

Though the recipe doesn't call for it, I would get an extra container of Cool Whip and add it to the top of the dessert before freezing. Then add some Hershey's chocolate syrup to garnish with the Oreos. Just a suggestion to keep it pretty. It's SO good!
