Peanut Butter Parfaits

All I have to say about this recipe is, Heavy Heavy but Heavenly.  I could give you a guess who's recipe this is...  Yup, Paula Deen's... I was watching this particular episode with my husband and told him I had to make it.  I love Nutter Butter cookies.  Most of all I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
