pb & chocolate pie
This pie took me five minutes to make. Honest. Aaaaand, it tastes just like a Reesies Cup. Here's a picture of it from the Kraft Food site. It's in the Holiday 2009 Food & Family magazine.
My drizzling technique has not been perfected like on the pie above, but I have no doubt it will taste just as good. :- ) I'm countin' on it.
1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 Tblsp. creamy peanut butter (divided)
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. vanilla flavor instant pudding (3.4 oz size)
2 1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip, divided
1 Oreo pie crust, 6 oz.
3 squares Baker's Semi-Sweet chocolate
Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup peanut butter until well blended. Add milk and dry pudding mix; beat 2 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate.
Microwave remaining Cool Whip and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on high 2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stiring after each minute. Cool.
Spread chocolate mixture over pudding layer in crust. Microwave remaining peanut butter in small microwaveable measuring cup 30 seconds; stir. Drizzle over pie.
Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
Then make a big pot of coffee and enjoy. Mmm.
