This was really good! I made it with a chocolate graham cracker crust and added a thin layer of chocolate pie filling (chocolate pudding) to the bottom before adding the peanut butter filling. I added a bit of vanilla to the filling and skipped the extra whipped topping and the peanut butter cups. My husband is absolutely in love with this pie and says he wants one a week! Read More

To make this even more decadent, freeze the pie after you spoon the filling in the crust. After it is frozen solid, add a layer of hot fudge sauce before adding the whipped topping. Read More

This is a great and easy recipe. Sets up much better than other peanut butter pie recipes I've tried which turn out way too soupy. Read More

This is the one! My coffee crew devoured this in less than 30 minutes! Extremely quick to make. It was the best. I choose to use an Oreo crust as I'm a chocoholic. I doubled the amount of peanut butter. It was plenty rich without using extra sugar. Everything else was the same amounts. I did add 1/3 of a 12 ounce jar of Smuckers HOT FUDGE sauce to the bottom of the crust. Do not use chocolate syrup. It is too thin! I also drizzle some on top. You have to melt it to drizzle as it is very thick. This is the 2nd recipe I tried in the last 3 days. Everyone asked for the recipe - even the guys! Kudos for recipe! Read More

This was a wonderful pie. Light and airy sweet with the light salty flavor from the peanut butter. Now the next time I make this I will make sure it refrigerates over night. Two to 3 hours just doesn't hold up every well. I only got one nice standing piece out of the pan the other peices flopped on the plate. I guess I'm glad it was just for my family. But all in all it was simple to make flavors were great. And it diffently makes your mouth water. Read More

Made this last night and it was a big hit! The whole family loved it (9 people)! I made a few changes based on other reviews and my personal preference. I upped the peanut butter to 3/4 cup used only about 4 oz. of whipped topping on the top and put a layer of hot fudge on the bottom of the crust before putting anything else on it. The fudge added a LOT! I drizzled some on the top too. I froze it and we all liked it better that way. Before eating I pulled it out and let it thaw for a few minutes. The fudge was gooey and so yummy on it! I will make this again and again! Read More

I made this exactly as written, because I was hankering for something dessert-wise to eat. (I ate the whole thing in 3 days.) I thought this was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of things with cream cheese in them, but it's growing on me. I did think that there was too much whipped topping on top of the pie. Maybe 8 oz. in the pie filling, and 4 oz. (half as much) on top would be better. Also, I didn't find the peanut butter flavor very strong, so I'd up the amount of that. But this was indeed pretty easy to make (I've only made a couple of pies of this type.) The miniature peanut butter cups on top were a nice addition, too. Read More

Really good and can be made lower in fat and calories by subbing in lite cream cheese and whipped topping. Read More
