You know how sometimes you just want to be bad? That is me right now. Here is my non-organic, unhealthy, but super yummy peanut butter pie recipe. Mine is in the fridge right now…
Peanut Butter Pie
1 pkg (8oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 TBS peanut butter, divided
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg (3.4 oz) Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
2 1/2 cups Cool Whip thawed, divided (this turns out to be an 8oz tub)
1 Oreo Pie crust (6oz)
3 squares Bakers semi-sweet chocolate
Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup peanut butter into submission, or at least until blended. Add milk and dry pudding mix; beat for 2 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip; spoon into crust. Refrigerate until you make the chocolate topping. Yeah, that’s right baby. Chocolate.
Microwave remaining Cool Whip and chocolate on high for about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes, until chocolate is completely melted and it is well blended – stopping every minute to stir. Cool completely.
Spread chocolate mixture onto the peanut butter mixture. Yeah. Microwave the remaining peanut butter (1 Tbs) in small bowl for about 30 seconds, stir, and drizzle over pie. Refrigerate 4 hours. Eat!! Then go for a run.
Happy Birthday John! This pie is for you!
