Frozen Snicker’s Peanut Butter Lasagna

Frozen Snicker's Peanut Butter Lasagna by notyourmommascookie.com

Normally, I’m all gung-ho about Halloween. It is my second favorite holiday, after all.

But, with the preparations for our little one’s arrival, this fabulous holiday has been put on the back burner of our lives.

Case in point – our Halloween decorations. 

Normally, our house looks like this every Halloween:

spider house

I freakin’ love it! But, between baby classes and preparing freezer meals, not to mention my husband’s cray-cray work schedule (he’ll be working 6 days a week, night shifts, until the baby is here), I don’t think the decorations are going to make it up this year.

That makes me a sad panda.

Now, my “bugs and kisses” Halloween treat bags won’t make any sense. *tear*

So, instead, I made some frozen Snicker’s peanut butter lasagna! I made this before my GD diagnosis, so I actually got to enjoy it! No lasagna noodles here – just creamy, delicious layers of cookies, peanut butter pudding, peanuts, caramel, and Snicker’s pieces. It will make your Halloween a bit sweeter!

I bet all the kids love coming to your house on Halloween! But with everything you have going on right now, I am pretty sure the neighbors will understand. So glad you got to enjoy this dessert, because it looks heavenly!

I love lasagna, but I think I would totally love this snickers peanut butter lasagna for dessert! Don’t worry about not decorating this year – next year will make up for it trick or treating with your little one! :)

Eep – I’m so excited for Halloween next year! I’ve already been thinking about costumes… ;)

Wow, your house decorations are so fantastic. I’d be one of those neighbors that had to slow down to take in the sight when I would drive by. I’m sure your neighbors would understand taking one year off from the festive decor. :) Great recipe!

Haha – we do get the “rubberneckers,” Mike! :) We love it!

You certainly know how to show your Halloween Spirit! Look at all those creepy spiders. I’d be stopping by checking them out every night if I was your neighbor.
I wouldn’t worry about decorating this year, but what I would do I would plan for the next year…
Have a good weekend Jennifer.

Your “lasagna” looks absolutely luscious, Jennifer! This is a dessert to be savored in small amounts so we don’t all send our blood sugar levels through the roof!( Glad you got to try it!) This would be a great dessert to make ahead for a gathering of any kind!
Speaking of gathering….I am totally arachnophobic and your lovingly decorated Halloween home makes me shiver just looking at pictures! I would not be gathering at your house for trick or treating….unless you were serving this lasanga…..maybe I could close my eyes….nope. I am making this at my spider-free(hopefully) house!

I hate spiders too, so it is kind of funny that we are the “spider house.” :)

Since this is lasagna I can totally call it dinner, right? ;)

PS. Your house looks amazing, if I would drive by it would make me smile big time!

I love how you decorate your house for Halloween. I am sad you don’t get to do it this year but, think of all the ideas you will have for next year!

This frozen snickers peanut butter lasagna looks incredible! I am glad you got to enjoy it. It would have been really sad to make this and send it out the door!

Your house looks marvelous!! I wish I loved close by so I could help you get your decorations up. But I am sure the kids in the neighborhood will forgive you if you give out these lasagna bars on Halloween night!! SO amazing.

Dessert lasagna? This is totally awesome! Your house looks great, and it’s a bummer to miss this year, but think about how much more fun it will be when you have your kid to do it with :)

Dessert lasagna?! What an incredible idea! And you can NEVER go wrong with Snickers. It’s a powerful thing.

Bummer about not getting to decorate your house, but it will be worth it. I have been dying to decorate since before my little guy came but I knew it would be too crazy to come home to so I held off. The itch is catching up with me though and I think I’m going to work on getting it done this weekend. It’s only a couple weeks away now!

Hi Renee! Cool Whip is a sweetened whipped cream product (http://www.kraftbrands.com/coolwhip). You could use homemade, sweetened whipped cream, but the consistency may change!
