Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
It really is DECADENT!
Decadent Peanut Butter Pie
1 cup creamy peanut butter, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 (12 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
1 prepared chocolate pie crust
1 (11.75 oz.) jar Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream Topping, divided

Beat together 1 cup peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar in large bowl with an electric mixer on medium until well combined. Gently mix in 3 cups whipped topping until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into pie crust. Use a spatula, smooth mixture to edges of pie.

Reserve 2 T. hot fudge topping in the corner of a resealable food storage bag; set aside. Microwave remaining topping on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir. Spread topping over pie, covering entire peanut butter layer. Refrigerate until set (I skipped this step and ended up with melted cool whip all over my fridge shelf!). Spread remaining whipped topping (1 1/2 cups) over completely cooled hot fudge layer, being careful not to mix the two layers.

Cut a small corner from bag containing topping. Squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pie. Place remaining 2 T. peanut butter in a resealable food storage bag; cut bag corner and squeeze to drizzle in opposite direction from topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  1. Does this taste like Perkins Peanut Butter Silk Pie? I've been looking for a recipe for that one. Maybe I can adapt this one. Hmmm.
