This is super easy. I was looking for a pie to use up a pre-made chocolate graham cracker crust and was able to pull the rest of the ingredients from stuff I had on hand. I substituted whipped topping for the whipped cream and I reduced the amount of sugar by 1/4c to compensate for the sweetness of the whipped topping. I will make this again but next time I will reduce the sugar by at least another 1/4c. This is a very sweet rich pie so if you are serving to guests think small slices;-). Read More

Followed the recipe exactly as written...where can I begin? Extremely sweet; very heavy and hard to digest; almost impossible to cut with the hard crust of chocolate chips and crust like cement. Read More

The filling was delicious. I thought the crust was a little too thick but my springform pan might be only 9". I also think instead of the melted chocolate chopped peanut butter cups would be really good. Read More

I wanted to make a peanut butter pie recipe that my mother had but she wasn't home. I decided to take a look on All Recipes and found this one which was pretty much the same. Its so creamy and the peanut butter chocolate combo satisfies your sweet tooth craving. Really easy but looks gourmet. Read More

Cheesecake Factory worthy!! We did crush Reeses peanut butter cups and spread on the bottom of a chocolate cookie premade crust w/ Mrs. Richarson's hot fudge... and covered w/ whipped cream drizzled hot fudge and Reese's crumbles. Read More

I used a store-bought Oreo pie crust and Cool Whip instead of the whipping cream subbed fat-free cream cheese and reduced-fat peanut butter. Very quick a little healthier and tastes just as great! Read More

I made two of these for father's day -- one for my dad and one for us: ) The only change I made was to use 1/3 less fat cream cheese. This may be the best peanut butter pie ever. Another reviewer said she didn't like that the peanut butter was the predominant flavor... that's what I loved! It is a peanut butter pie after all. If I wanted a cheesecake I would have made a peanut butter cheesecake. This was very very rich. A small slice is all you can eat at once but that means there's lots left over for later! My dad called and said he loved it too! Thanks! Read More

The first day we found this VERY sweet I could only have a couple bites. But after letting it sit in the fridge overnight it was amazing the next day! The flavors combined very nicely. Read More

I have been making a similar pie for years but I lost the recipe. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe. I do have to say that I adapted this for a diabetic using dream whip and splenda. Still very good Read More
