Just like a big Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

I've made the below pie twice now and it has been quite the hit. I love no bake pies in the summertime. No need to make your home hotter than it already is!

Double Layer Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie (From www.allrecipes.com)


Ingredients

* 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

Cooking Instructions

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.

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.

Scatter peanut butter cups over top of pie. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.


Now when I made it, I made the following substitutions:

Sugar Free Cool Whip for the frozen whipped topping
Splenda for the Sugar
Sugar Free Instant Chocolate pudding
Keebler® Ready Crust® Graham 2 Extra Servings Pie Crust (a bit bigger than the 9" pie)

This is super easy! I hope you like it!!

Hubby loves peanut butter and chocolate together. I am attempting to make the cake with those ingredients in it from the new Katie Lee Joel cookbook. It is what hubby wanted and hopefully it will turn out ok. His birthday is tomorrow.
This looks like a good recipe too.
