Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie (Or: A Husband's Favorite)

It's simple, has no redeeming nutritional value and made for one very happy husband (though I certainly enjoyed it too) on Pi Day.


Without further ado, I present Double Layer Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie (courtesy of--where else--AllRecipes), blogged as per Chris' request.



  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cold milk
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
  • 2 (3.9 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 4 peanut butter cups, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (I forgot to buy these)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and peanut butter until smooth. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups of whipped topping. Spread mixture on bottom of pie crust.
  2. In a second bowl, stir pudding mix with 2 cups milk until thick. Immediately stir in remaining whipped topping. Spread mixture over peanut butter layer.
  3. Scatter peanut butter cups over top of pie. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  4. Serve to your overjoyed husband.
