Tuesday Treats: Peanut Butter Cup Pie

One of my favorite things to steal from a Halloween goody bag is Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. Those things are just plain addictive. This pie is like a giant Reece’s. and perfect for upcoming holiday desserts.

Prep Time: 15 min.
Total Time: 4 hr. 30 min.
Servings: 10 servings
Chocolate and peanut butter are at it again, this time in a refrigerator pie that delivers all the creamy goodness you can pour into a cookie crust.

What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. creamy creamy peanut butter, divided
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
2-1/2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
1 OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.)
3 oz. BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

Make It

Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup peanut butter in medium bowl until blended. Add milk and dry pudding mix; beat 2 min. Whisk in 1 cup COOL WHIP; spoon into crust. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Meanwhile, microwave remaining COOL WHIP and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Cool completely.

Spread chocolate mixture over pudding layer in crust. Microwave remaining peanut butter in small microwaveable bowl 30 sec.; stir. Drizzle over pie. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.

I polled my characters to see who would make or eat the pie. The right hand of every Wolf reached for the sky. The ladies just shook their heads. Then Sam Prescott Cross rolled her eyes and slapped Easy’s arm. “Fine,” she groused. “I’ll make the damn pie tonight. Happy now?” You can bet she’ll have to make more than one because all the Nightriders will be headed to her and Easy’s house for dessert.
