Jimmy Carter Cake - A Delicious Chocolate and Peanut Butter Layered Dessert
What You Will Need:
2/3 cup of dry roasted peanuts, chopped
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted cold butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 small package instant pudding, vanilla flavor
1 small package instant pudding, chocolate flavor
2-3/4 cup of milk
1 Tub of Cool Whip
Extra chopped peanuts for garnish
Chocolate for grating
Place peanuts in food processor and chop until fine. Combine the peanuts and flour and cut in butter; press out into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; set aside and cool completely. Put crust in fridge to chill a little.
Cream the peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Carefully spread on top of the crust layer. Put in fridge to chill.
Whisk puddings together, add milk and whisk for about 2 minutes or until pudding begins to thicken. Carefully spread pudding on top of the peanut butter & cream cheese layer, taking care not to disturb the peanut butter layer. Put in fridge to chill.
Let Cool Whip reach room temperature so that its easy to spread. Carefully spread the Cool Whip over the pudding layer taking care not to disturb the pudding layer. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and grate chocolate over top.
Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or overnight before serving.
