Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie June 2, 2015

     I decided to make something yummy that appeals to Dave’s love of Peanut Butter, my love of chocolate. Mix them together, and you have the perfect match! It’s a little bit of a process, but will be worth every bite.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

1st Layer:
In a 9 x 13 glass pan, melt a stick & 1/2 butter
Then add:
1 1/2 pkg ground graham crackers
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix well right in the pan, then lighly press the mixture across the bottom of the pan.

2nd Layer:
2- 3 oz pkgs vanilla pudding (cooked pudding preferred)
Mix in 3 cups of milk
Cook in microwave for 6 minutes.
Stir well, and add 3/4 cup peanut butter
Mix well until peanut butter is mixed through the pudding.
Cook for 2 more minutes. Stir again & put the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Then add 8 oz cream cheese (room temperature), and blend well with a mixer.
Pour this mixture on top of the graham cracker crust, return to the refrigerator & move on to the next layer.

3rd Layer:
16 oz canned chocolate frosting (your favorite brand)
8 oz Cool Whip (buy 16 oz container-set 8 oz aside for top)
Blend together & top your pudding layer with this chocolaty goodness.

4th layer:
Use the last 8 oz of Cool Whip to top the chocolate layer.
Sprinkle some graham cracker on top, or top with your favorite chopped up candy, chocolate curls etc.

Return the entire dish to the refrigerator & let it set up for at least 2-3 hours. If you are using it as a dish to pass, I guarantee it will be one that empties your pan quickly. Enjoy!
