Peanut Butter Cup Pie

fullsizeoutput_11b5

Peanut butter pie has always been a favorite of mine. This is my first time making this type of pie, and I’m really happy with how the pie turned out. There are a variety of ways to make a peanut butter pie, but for my creation, I used the same peanut mixture I used to make my peanut butter balls, and just added in the cool whip and coated it with chocolate to make a Peanut Butter Cup pie. This recipe is super easy to make, and is great for desserts and bringing to a gathering.  I look forward to reading all your comments!

Things you’ll need:

2 mixing bowls

Melting chocolate (I used Ghirardelli chocolate)

Peanuts

1 9 oz graham cracker crust. (You can also use an Oreo crust)

1 ½ cups of peanut butter

½ cup of butter (softened)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3 cups of powdered sugar

1/2 cup of Cool whip

Instructions:

  1. Mix peanut butter, butter, and vanilla extract together with the Kitchen Aid mixer.
  2. Slowly pour the powdered sugar to the creamy mixture, but making sure to mix well each time.
  3. Once the powdered sugar is incorporated into the peanut butter mixture, add in ½ cup of Cool whip.
  4. Melt two-three bars of Ghirardelli chocolate and coat the crust until crust doesn’t show.
  5. Place both crust and peanut butter mixture in freezer for ten minutes, or until chocolate is hardened.
  6. Next, spread peanut butter mixture into crust.
  7. Melt some more Ghirardelli chocolate and spread on top of peanut butter mixture.
  8. Finally, crush some peanuts and sprinkle on top of chocolate.
  9. Place in freezer until chocolate is hardened.
  10. Enjoy!!!!!
