Amazing Oreo Dessert

oreo dessertHere's a dessert that will please the sweetest of sweet tooths. It's called Amazing Oreo Dessert, and it is pretty amazing.

There's no baking required, so it's a great hot-weather treat to whip up without heating up your house. This version comes from Food.com, and in addition to layers of the sandwich cookies, piled with a creamy peanut butter and cream cheese concoction, it contains peanut butter cups as well. I tend to leave out the peanut butter cups as it's plenty good without them, but either way, you can't go wrong with this decadent dessert.
