Reese's Peanut Butter Pie

We celebrated my stepmom's birthday today and I decided that since I had most of the ingredients on hand and she LOVES reese's that I should make her a birthday pie! I found this recipe and decided it simply didn't have enough reese's in it ;) so I added a few more!

  • 1 Graham Cracker Pie Crust. (1/3 cup melted butter, 3 tbsp. sugar, 1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 8oz block of cream cheese 
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 12 oz. tub of cool whip topping
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
  • 3 Tbs of milk
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 9 reese's cups

  1. Mix the softened cream cheese, 1 cup of Peanut Butter and the sugar. You can use a mixer, but was able to easily blend it by hand. 
  2. Next Gently fold in the whole tub of cool whip and 4 crushed reese's cups.
  3. Fill the pie crust with all your peanut butter filling.
  4. Now melt your 1 cup of chocolate chips with 3 tablespoons of milk in the microwave. I put it in for 4 15second intervals and took it out then stirred really well until the chocolate was completely melted and smooth.
  5. Carefully coat the top of your peanut butter filling with the melted chocolate. 
  6. Coat the entire pie up to the pie crust in one even layer.Before the chocolate topping starts to set, sprinkle 4 chopped peanut butter cup pieces over the pie and gently press it into the chocolate sauce. Refrigerate pie for 4-8 hours before serving.
