- 2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 cups 2% milk
- 6 large egg yolks, beaten
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
- 6 peanut butter cups, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- Preheat oven to 375°. Combine cookie crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto bottom of a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
- For filling, in a large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, flour and salt. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Pour over crust. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours.
- In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Spread over peanut butter mixture. Sprinkle with peanut butter cups and peanuts. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
To Make ahead: After peanut butter custard is poured over the crust, refrigerate overnight. Before serving, top with the sweetened whipped cream, peanuts, peanut butter candy and chocolate drizzle.
Test Kitchen Tips
- The rich homemade custard filling and real whipped cream are to die for, but if you’re short on time, make three 3-ounce boxes of vanilla cook-and-serve pudding mix according to manufacturer’s directions. Whisk in the peanut butter before spreading, and finish with whipped topping.
- If you prefer your filling on the firmer side, feel free to add a tablespoon or two of cornstarch.
