Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Okay, so anyone who knows me knows that I am sooooo not a peanut butter person but lately I have eaten so much of it. First the Fried PB&J, then Baby Cakes brought home some Reeses Peices and now this, ohhh this. Just wait. Woo-weee!

Tomorrow is the next installment of the Girls Poker Shin-dig and I held a vote between 3 different desserts, this one won 4 to 6.

Peanut Butter Cream Pie
adapted from Pioneer Women


Chocolate Pie Crust (Ready-Made)
1 (8 oz.) block of cream cheese, room temp.
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 (8 oz.) tub of Cool Whip*
1 (7 oz.) microwavable tub Baker's Dipping Chocolate, Milk Chocolate
handful of Reeses' Pieces candies


In a large bowl beat together peanut butter and softened cream cheese until combined, using a hand mixer. Add the powdered sugar and beat again until incorporated. Lastly, add the Cool Whip and mix until honey colored and well incorporated. Pour into, or rather scoop into, the pie crust and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.

Follow directions on Baker's Chocolate cup and melt chocolate. Pour over the peanut butter mixture and again smooth out.

Toss on a handful of Reeses' Pieces candies and chill until set, about an hour (although I did it overnight). Enjoy!

I also made Baby Cakes his very own Peanut Butter Cream Parfait...

How could I not, look at him...

I caught him while he was so diligently working away on our taxes. And since the girls poker shin-dig is no husbands allowed and I know how much he loooooves peanut butter and chocolate, well, what can I say, I heart the big lug.

To make it simply follow the directions only instead of pie crust drop a chocolate cookie in a cup/dish, a big dallop of Peanut Butter Cream, some melted chocolate and a few Reeses' Pieces.

It is soooo freakin' yummy. XOXO,

*Everytime I see or think about Cool Whip I remember the way Stewie says it on Family Guy. If you've never heard it run a search on YouTube, Michael and I call it that now. Just thought you might like to know that. (GRIN)
