Happy Thursday Seekers! It's that time, head on over to the Tank and link up your favorite pie recipes with my sissy!!
Pie, pie, me oh my, I love pie! (Sorry, I was having a "Michael" moment)! I honestly LOVE pie! All kinds of pie! I have a hard time picking my favorite, because I like so many! Normally if I'm sharing a pie recipe it's my momma's chocolate cream "fake out" pie. But since I've already shared that one, during our "Stuff it" SaS, I had to come up with something else.
Few things go together like chocolate and peanut butter! I happen to them love both. Put them together in a pie and that's my kind of heaven! Did you know that Reese's is the #1 selling candy bar in the USA and Canada? Yep, a little bit of trivia I learned watching the Food Network! It also happens to be one of my FAVORITE chocolate bars, candy, whatever you want to call it! It inspired this pie recipe!
I looked up several recipes, to get a feel for what I wanted, and I came up with this. . . .
Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
2 chocolate ready-made pie crusts
(this makes 2 pies, 1 for you and 1 to share)
1 pkg (3.4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
1 pkg (3.4 oz) butterscotch instant pudding
2 1/2 cups of cold milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
8 oz container if cool whip
Reese's peanut butter dessert toppings
(cookie pieces, peanut butter chips, & sprinkles)
In a large mixing bowl (with a hand held mixer) mix both pudding pkgs and milk. (Do not follow pkg directions, only add 2 1/2 cups of milk). Once your pudding becomes thick, add 1/2 cup of peanut butter (about 3 large spoon fulls). Beat with mixer until creamy. Fold in cool whip. Evenly distribute pie mixture into ready-made crusts. I originally bought one chocolate pie crust and had to go back to by a second one. But they were all out of the chocolate ones. So I got one of the Oreo pie crusts. You could also use a regular graham cracker pie crust if you wanted. I'll let you know how this one turns out??
Add the marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and Reese's topping (in that order). Cover (with the plastic lid it came with) and place in the freeze for atleast 6 hours. (Hide one for yourself, it's that good)! Remove the pie 20 minutes before serving! I added more chocolate syrup to the individual pieces!
There you have it! Heaven in a pie shell! Hope you'll try it out and love it as much as I did!
