From my Grandma’s Recipe Box.
Who doesn’t love a quick and easy dessert?
A couple weeks back when I was scouring my Grandma Arlene’s recipe box for a recipe for National Pi Day, I came across several and I couldn’t choose which one to make. So as you know I made the pecan version for my husband who had been begging me for months to make one. But this recipe caught my eye too, and I knew I had to make it soon!
Also, I have a few food addictions, but I’m not too sure that any are greater than peanut butter! And who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter together? Only a few things can make peanut butter itself better, and chocolate has to be the #1 thing!
Personally, I would have loved to just eat the chocolate peanut butter mixture for this hot off the stove, but I already had the crust waiting for me.
* I used my Grandma Madeline’s pie crust for this recipe, but I think a graham cracker crust would be divine!
- ½ recipe of Grandma's Pie Crust or 1 ready-to-use pie crust
- 1 large box Cook n’ Serve chocolate pudding
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 bag mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups (optional)
- Cook pudding on stovetop according to package directions, adding peanut butter into the mixture. Use a whisk to make sure everything is well blended.
- Pour pudding mixture into prepared pie crust. Let cool at room temperature.
- While the pie is cooling, roughly chop up peanut butter cups and top pie with them.
