PB & Chocolate Pie

I really can't think of two ingredients that go better together. I absolutely love peanut butter and chocolate. Let's be honest, each is so delicious on their own, why wouldn't you want to combine them? I made this pie for my church at our annual soup supper and it was quite the hit. I even had women coming into the pie room reserving pieces of my pie!

If you are a pb and choc fanatic like I am, you will not regret making this pie. Did I mention it is pretty much the easiest thing EVER to make? Because it is.

Recipe courtesy of Kraft foods Food & Family magazine

1 pkg. (8 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp. creamy peanut butter, divided
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) Jello-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
2 1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping, divided
1 Oreo Pie Crust (6 oz)
3 squares Baker's Semi Sweet Chocolate

1. Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup peanut butter until well blended. Add milk and dry pudding mix; beat 2 min. Whisk 1 cup Cool Whip; spoon into crust. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Meanwhile, microwave remaining Cool Whip and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on high 1 1/2 to 2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Cool completely.
3. Spread chocolate mixture over pudding layer in crust. Microwave remaining peanut butter in small microwaveable measuring cup or bowl 30 sec.; stir. Drizzle over pie. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.

Lick your lips and devour your yummy pie!
