Butterfinger Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lush

So many delicious, creamy layers and the buttery crunch of Butterfinger candy. This Butterfinger, Chocolate, and Peanut Butter Lush is pure heaven.

When I saw this Chocolate Oreo Peanut Butter Dream Pudding recipe from Seeded at the Table on Pinterest, I couldn’t make it fast enough.

And it got eaten even faster.


I got to meet Nikki of Seeded at the Table at a White Lily event last month and I immediately liked her. Just as much as I like her dessert.


There are of course many variations of this dessert- all of them amazing.

But the combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and Butterfingers makes this one hard to beat.


Not to mention a crust made from Oreo cookies.

Yes, this butterfinger dessert is quite sinful and very worth every single calorie.


Two Butterfinger Lush slices.

The oreo crust is topped by a rich peanut butter and cream cheese layer with crushed Butterfingers mixed in.

Then comes a layer of chocolate pudding, followed by a Cool Whip topping and more crushed Butterfingers.

Dessert doesn’t get any better than this.

Cool, creamy, and delicious!

Tips for making Butterfinger Lush:

  • No need to remove the cream from the oreo cookies.
  • Leftovers will keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
  • Be sure to get instant pudding mix, NOT the kind that needs to be cooked. If you are having trouble getting the pudding to set up, you probably got the wrong kind.

You won't find a more delicious dessert than this cool and creamy Butterfinger Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lush. Layer after layer of heaven!
PREP: 20 minutes
TOTAL: 20 minutes


  • 32 Oreo cookies
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 bag mini Butterfingers
  • 1 (16-ounce) container Cool Whip, divided
  • 1 (5.9-ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk


  • In a medium bowl, stir together crushed oreo cookies and melted butter. Transfer to a 9X13-inch baking dish and press firmly all along the bottom. Refrigerate.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese. Gradually add confectioners' sugar. Beat in peanut butter. Fold in 1 cup of Cool Whip. Crush 6 mini Butterfingers and fold them into peanut butter mixture.
  • Spread peanut butter mixture evenly over oreo crust.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the pudding mix and milk together. Let sit to thicken for a minute or two and then pour over peanut butter layer.
  • Spread remaining Cool Whip on top. Crush remaining Butterfingers and sprinkle on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


The Butterfingers are really easy to crush while they are still in the wrapper. Just use a rolling pin to tap them a few times.

  1. Can I make this two days ahead? I want to make it for a church potluck but don’t want the crust to get soggy… Maybe I should freeze it and put it in the fridge the night before?? I tried to see if it said anywhere on here if you could make it several days ahead but couldn’t find anything. Thanks!

  2. Made this for a pot luck and it was a big hit. Everyone wanted to know the name and what was in each layer. Definitely will make it again!

    1. This is my husband’s favorite dessert (his mom’s butterscotch lush is his second favorite now🤫). I’m not a big fan of bought pudding desserts, but this is pretty good! Made so much easier by the bags of crushed butterfingers you can buy now!

  3. This is delicious! It is very easy to make. It is a perfect dessert to take to parties, church fellowships, and family get togethers!

  4. I love this. But I make a box brownie for the base and crunchy peanut butter to just take it to the next level! It’s a huge hit! Thanks for the recipe


    1. Good dessert. I couldn’t find a pudding in a 5 oz so subbed two smaller. Then I had to add more milk cuz it was way too thick. Prob added maybe one cup more. Made for potluck and yummy!!

  6. My family absolutely loves this recipe! The second time I made it I mixed the ingredients as the recipe calls for but used two pre-made Oreo pie crusts instead of making my own. Both ways are delicious!

  7. Absolutely the best thing I’ve ever made! Of course, I love butterfingers and chocolate! It’s absolutely the perfect combination of both!! Will definitely be making this again!

  8. Has anyone ever made this in a 8*8 or 9*9 sized pan? I want to make this, but don’t need a 9*13 pan of it. Could you please provide the quantities of what you used for the recipe, and or how it’s altered compared to the 9*13 recipe?

    Thank you very much! 🙂

  9. I couldn’t find a bag a of mini butterfingers, so have 6 full sized. If you crush 6 minis for the middle layer, how many does that leave to sprinkle on top? Just eye balling the pictures, it seems most goes in the middle layer, with just 2-4 minis crushed to sprinkle on top? Great recipes!
