Look, I have zero restraint when it comes to chocolate and peanut butter and showed none in creating this over-the-top chocolate peanut butter icebox cake. Not even trying to humble-brag here — this is the best chocolate peanut butter no-bake dessert that ever existed.

Built on the back of the classic buckeye candy, this icebox cake is a decadent Reese’s-lover’s dream. Layers of rich chocolate and peanut butter mousses are supported by a thick peanut butter cream, and chocolate ganache acts as the delicious glue holding it all together.

Your fork will slowly sink into each layer, gathering morsels of chocolate and peanut butter, studded with peanuts, more chocolate, and tender chocolate graham crackers. Sounds decadent and complicated, but by transforming the chocolate ganache and peanut butter cream into both the mousse-like filling and the chocolate topping, I’m saving you both time and mixing bowls in the process. Let’s do this.
