Lorie's Story

This decadent dessert is made of three of my all time favorite spreads which are peanut butter, Nutella, and Biscoff. It is easy to make, yet elegant enough to entertain with.

I'm sure it can be doubled because there's no baking time except the crust. I would probably whip the cream in two batches and fold in 2/3 of each batch in each layer. I think you might need an even bigger than 9x13 pan, maybe 12x15. Baking sheet is not deep enough, so you need a big lasagna pan. Cut the pieces small; it's very rich. That size would be for a big pot luck supper or family party.

Please let me know if this can be doubled and then would be okay for a 13 x 9 pan. Thanks for the recipe--it looks great!

I read this recipe again and decided not to add the 1/3 cup of sugar to each layer since Biscoff, Nutella and peanut butter are all sweet, as is the Oreo crust and the whipped cream. It was PLENTY sweet with 1 cup less sugar in it! It was good, but very, very rich. I'd say a 9" torte will feed 16 people. Cut those slices as thin as you can! I'd never had Biscoff before, and think I'd like it with fruit in crepes, for dessert or breakfast.

I made these with cut up maraschino cherries, pecans chopped and white chocolate chips. The men went nuts over them.
