Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Heaven

I have an amazing friend who just finished her Master’s degree and has her graduation ceremony today. I wanted to do something nice for her as a congratulations and she loves chocolate and peanut butter. In fact, I’m to blame for her recent addiction to Reese’s hearts over the valentine season. So I decided on my quick peanut butter pie that any chocolate peanut butter lover would enjoy.

Ingredients:

1 prepared graham cracker crust
1 cup chocolate hot fudge sauce
1 (8 ounce) pkg cream cheese
2/3 tub of frozen whipped topping (thawed)
2/3 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon peanut butter for garnish
Chopped peanut butter cups for garnish

Spread hot fudge sauce on the bottom of the pie crust, reserving about 1-2 Tablespoons for garnish. I made my hot fudge sauce by taking some of my homemade chocolate syrup and boiling it for a few minutes over medium high heat on the stove. I chilled it completely until thick and cold. Then spread it on the bottom of my crust.

Next put the peanut butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar in your mixing bowl and beat together. Stir in the whipped topping.

Spread this mixture on top of the fudge layer.

Next take the one Tablespoon of peanut butter and put it in a small bowl. Microwave for 15-30 seconds until melted.

Sprinkle the peanut butter cups across the top. Then drizzle the remaining hot fudge sauce and melted peanut butter over the top.

Refrigerate overnight or put in the freezer for 1-2 hours before serving. This is a crowd pleaser in our house and I hope my friend knows just how proud I am of her accomplishment! Now I may have to go make my husband one too 🙂 thanks for stopping by!
