Oh my, this was delicious! Chocolate, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, peanut butter....all mixed together in one dessert! It was heavenly. My cookie base didn't hold together well when I sliced it into individual servings, so next time I think I'll try adding a little more butter (maybe 1 Tbsp extra) to see if it keeps the base from crumbling before I get the slices to the dessert plates. But even so, it was positively delicious and everyone really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks, TeresaS.
