Homemade Peanut Butter Torte

Yes, I have more easy dessert recipes to share, and they are delicious. This recipe is from my sister-in-law Kim.  It is wonderful.


Homemade German Chocolate Cake
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel sauce
1 (8oz) Cool Whip (homemade doesn’t work as well)
2 Heath candy bars, broken in pieces

Make sure you bake your cake in a 9×13 pan. Let the cake cool and with a wooden spoon handle punch holes about one inch apart over the entire cake. Pour the whole can of sweet milk into the holes. Next pour the entire jar of caramel sauce over the cake.

Spread the Cool Whip over the caramel topping. Last but not least – sprinkle Heath bar pieces over all. I freeze the candy bars and hit them with a hammer to break into pieces.

Refrigerate overnight before serving. This is very important for the flavor of the dessert.

Another scrumptious easy dessert recipe.


1 box graham crackers
2 small boxes instant french vanilla instant pudding
3 cups milk
8 oz tub Cool Whip
2 TBS butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 envelopes Nestle ChocoBake
1-1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Place a layer of whole graham cracker on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. In a bowl, combine the 3 cups of milk with the instant pudding and beat until smooth. Fold in the Cool Whip and pour over the graham crackers.

Next place another layer of graham crackers over the pudding mixture. This easy dessert recipe is so good.

In a small bowl, add the 2 TBS butter, 1/4 cup milk and Chocobake with the powdered sugar to make a soft frosting. Spread this mixture over the graham cracker layer. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Another awesome quick dessert recipe.
