OMG this was sooo awesome.My daughter has been doing very well in school and begged for this. I was stunned. The other version from this site was good but hard and expensive to make. I used the instant pudding and then used my mixer to avoid clumps. Perfect consistency and yummy. I topped it with peanut butter chips and drizzled with chocolate syrup. Done in 15 mins tops. I also used a chocolate crust. Now she wants me to make it for every month for her good school work reward!!! I made this for less then 5 awesome on tight budgets! Read More

I followed a previous reviewers advise and used the instant pudding i had on hand and microwaved the peanut butter first. It was clumpy and runny. We couldn't even finish one serving. I only give it 3 because we used instant pudding which the recipe doesn't call for so it could be our fault. Read More

This is the first peanut butter pie I have ever liked. I made it in a chocolate crust coated with melted chocolate and than swirled it with peanut butter and choc. chips. It was excellent. nancy Read More

I melted the peanut butter in the microwave and added it to the milk for instant pudding (it was all I had in the cupboard). I also forgot to reduce the milk for pie rather than pudding. My soggy mess tasted great! I can see how this would be great if made as directed. I would be interested to see how it worked for someone else with instant pudding mix. Read More

Wow! This tasted and looked like it took more than it did. I used the sugar free instant vanilla pudding mixed slightly with the 1 3/4 cup milk (amount for a pie) and then added (whisked) in the peanut butter (I microwaved for about 25 seconds- melted but not hot). I did use a granola crust but definitely thinking a chocolate crust would be great. Really needs some color on top- chocolate syrup fudge sauce ganache peanut butter cups- something - especially when using graham crust otherwise it's too "plain" looking. It does have a richness but it's so much better than I expected! Read More

Made this for our family Thanksgiving potluck. It is very rich and delicious. I kept being told I was "bad" for making it but that was as people were shoveling it down! I used a chocolate graham cracker crust and crunchy peanut butter. I only had instant vanilla pudding which worked fine. I added the warmed peanut butter after I had added the cold milk. I also topped the pie with crushed 5th Avenue candy bars. Delish! Read More
