We redeveloped an old family favorite with homemade chocolate pudding, real whipped cream and homemade peanut butter to make this an incredibly decadent treat!


We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a beautiful blessed New Year!!!

Chocolate Pudding

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Simple Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar


  • Crumble cookies by hand or in a food processor, into fine crumbs. Set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl add whipped cream and peanut butter, gentling fold peanut butter into whipped cream until combined. Set aside.
  • In 4 individual trifle dishes or bowl of your choice, add 2-4 tablespoons of crumbled cookie to the bottom, shake to disperse evenly. Add 1/2 cup of pudding to dishes. Smooth out for an even line. Add 2-4 more tablespoons of crumbled cookie. Add 1/2 heaping cup of peanut butter whipped cream. Smooth out top for a nice presentation. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Drizzle with chocolate and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Serve and Enjoy!

Chocolate Pudding

  • In a medium pot over medium heat combine sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt, add milk slowly. Bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring continually. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into a heat proof bowl and cover with plastic wrap (place the plastic wrap directly on top of the pudding to prevent the ‘skin’ from forming). Allow to chill until served. Serves 6 (1/2 cup servings).

Simple Whipped Cream

  • In a tall mixing bowl whip cold whipping cream until peaks form. To prevent splattering start on low and increase mixer speed until peaks form. Add sugar continue to whip until medium peaks form. Chill until served.
