CHOCOLATE-COVERED PEANUT BUTTER CREAM PIE

Table of Contents: PIES

Cooking Tip:
Chill an electric mixer bowl and the beaters before whipping the cream.  I put the beaters into the bowl; then put the bowl into the freezer just long enough to chill bowl and beaters.  Also, keep whipping cream in the coldest part of a refrigerator.

¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 T. milk
2 ¾ cups heavy whipping cream, divided
8 oz. Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, divided
1 chocolate pre-made Oreo pie crust (keep the plastic cover to use for covering pie later)
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

 

Pie Filling:
Using an electric mixer with the large bowl, cream the sugar and cream cheese until smooth.   Add the peanut butter and the milk and beat for 1 minute.

Using the chilled bowl, whip 2 cups of the heavy whipping cream (reserve the remaining cream for the chocolate topping) until stiff peaks form.

By hand, fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.

Remove the packaging from all but 4 Mini Reese’s Cups, and cut the cups into halves.  By hand, fold the halved Mini Reese’s’ Cups into the mixture to blend throughout.

Pour the peanut butter mixture into the pre-made Oreo piecrust; then smooth the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until the pie is set.  Do not make the chocolate covering until after the pie is set.

Chocolate Covering:
Place the chocolate chips and the remaining ¾ cup heavy cream into a heavy saucepan. Using medium-heat while stirring constantly, completely melt the chocolate chips into the cream; then remove from the heat.

Continue to stir while cooling for 2 minutes: then pour the chocolate topping over the entire pie top. Remove the packaging from the remaining 4 Mini Reese’s Cups and evenly crumble on top of the pie for garnish. Place the inverted plastic pie cover over the completed pie and refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely set.  Serves 8.

Tamera, thank you so much for submitting this fabulous pie recipe!  I actually watched it vanish  from the serving plate when I served it to friends last evening.  I particularly like the lightness of the pie.  It is not a heavy dessert, but it certainly satisfies the peanut butter lover’s sweet tooth.
