Paula’s Peanut Butter Parfait

I have to admit, I love Paula Deen, this recipe, although it was super yummy, didn’t turn out looking so good!  It is on the cover of one of her latest magazines:  Quick & Easy Meals and looked so nicely put together, mine, however, turned into a pile of yummy mush-not suitable for company consumption, but was way suitable for family consumption!
Paula’s Peanut Butter Parfait
2 cups cold fat-free milk
1 (3.9 ounce) box instant chocolate-flavored pudding mix
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened**
1 (8 ounce) container cool whip, thawed**
1 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 (1 pound) package Nutter Butter cookies-crumbled
In a medium bowl, combine milk and pudding mix;  beat at medium speed with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Set aside.  In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and powdered sugar;  beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.  Add cream cheese, beating until smooth.  Fold in the cool whip, mixing to combine.  In serving glasses, layer pudding, peanuts, peanut butter mixture and crumbled cookies, as desired.  Garnish with cookies and chopped peanuts.  Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
**I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and lite cool whip

    Then it really is time to get some expert enable.
    Most cushions have zip-off addresses, which would make cleansing them quite straightforward.
