  2. Place ⅓ of Marie Biscuits into a single layer in the bottom of a deep 13×9-inch baking dish.
  3. Prepare peanut butter layer. Place 1 (8oz.) block cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in vanilla instant pudding mix and peanut butter until smooth. Very slowly add in 1¾ cups of milk while beating until well mixed and smooth. Spread mixture on top of graham crackers in baking dish.
  4. Place another ⅓ of Marie Biscuits into a single layer on top of peanut butter filling.
  5. Prepare chocolate filling. Place remaining 1 (8oz.) block of cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Slowly beat in chocolate pudding mix, cooled chocolate sauce, and remaining 1½ cups milk until smooth. Spread mixture on top of Marie Biscuits in baking dish.
  6. Place remaining ⅓ of Marie Biscuits into a single layer on top of the chocolate layer. Spread whipped topping on top of Marie Biscuits. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips then peanuts on top of whipped topping.
  7. Cover and refrigerate chocolate lasagna for at least 4-6 hours or overnight before serving.

Notes:

SNAPPY TIPS: Use a deep 13×9-inch baking dish to make sure all layers fit. Be sure to let the dessert sit in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours to the layers can thicken and the Marie Biscuits can soften to a cake-like consistency.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of mini chocolate chips, you could use regular chocolate chips and semi-sweet, bittersweet, or dark chocolate. You can substitute any kind of nut butter and/or nuts for the peanut butter and peanuts.
