peanut butter pie. comfort in a few ingredients.

sometimes you just need simple, unadulterated comfort. in a pie.

1 jar peanut butter
1 container defrosted cool whip
1 pre-made pie crust (chocolate, oreo, or graham all work)
1/2 bag chocolate chips
a little butter
a little milk or cream
about 6 reese's peanut butter cups

scoop the peanut butter and the cool whip into a big bowl.
mix it together until it's combined.
spread it into the pie crust.
lick the bowl.
melt chocolate chips with a tab of butter either in the microwave.
add the milk or cream bit by bit.
a few tablespoons should be fine.
smooth the chocolate onto the top of the peanut butter cool whip combo.
crush the reese's cups up and decorate the top of the chocolate however you like.
put the pie in the fridge to let the chocolate harden.
take the pie out of the fridge.
eat it.
it's very rich.

next time i think i'll incorporate some pretzel...


  1. Yuuum, even if cool whip kinda scares me.

    You do a derby pie that has peanut butter in it, right? Can you post that recipe next (or send it to me perhaps?). Thanks!
