The original Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Bars were brainstormed with the help of my daughter and very quickly became one of the most popular recipes on the blog. I baked the cookie crust, but honestly you can combine the Nutter Butter cookies with butter and place the crust into the freezer to make them a no bake dessert as well.

One of the best things about these dream bar recipes besides the fact that they’re no bake, is that my recipe for Stabilized Whipped Cream is a great replacement for Cool Whip in all of them.
It makes the amount you need and you can feel good about giving your family a dessert with a real whipped cream, no artificial gobbledegook and NO gelatin as in some recipes!
I know there are similar recipes out there with other names like layered lush, dessert lasagna and mine are very similar to those in ingredients. I just decided to name them dream bars because when you bite into each one they really are pretty dreamy.
And yes, I know that they aren’t really what you might consider to be a bar dessert, but just go with it and pretend.
Because after you bite into any one of them, let’s face it you aren’t going to really care all that much what they’re called anyway. It will make for good discussion around the dessert table at least.
