This is a combination of a recipe Mom Meyer gave me and one I found on Zaar. The fudge layer adds some interest. I reduced the sugar and increased the peanut butter from other recipes. This is a good summer treat, and can be frozen for a while. Thaw at least a few hours before eating in the fridge or an hour before on the counter.
- Mix cream cheese until fluffy.
- Blend in peanut butter and powdered sugar, mix well.
- Slowly add milk.
- Fold in 2-4 ounces of the whipped topping.
- Set aside.
- Spread fudge onto bottom and sides of prepared crust.
- Put mixture into crust.
- Freeze a few hours until just set.
- Spread remaining whipped topping over pie.
- Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
- Replace lid and freeze.
- Thaw in fridge 2 or more hours, or counter 1 hour, before serving.
I love this recipe because of the fudge layer AND the increase of peanut butter. The other pies I have tried taste more like cheesecake with a hint of peanut. This pie TOTALLY stands alone!!! Oh and I used an oreo crust as well due to my chocolate addiction!!! Thanks so much for this recipe!! I am actually making another pie now to share with my church family tomorrow!!!
This is wonderful! I made my own hot fudge - Kahlua Fudge Sauce - and used light cream cheese, fat free cool whip, and skim milk - but you'd never know! Very rich! I also used an oreo crust instead of graham cracker. Drizzled with a little extra fudge sauce when serving. Thanks so much for sharing!
Five stars! Easy to make, and very delicious! Made it for Memorial Day. Family loved it. I could only eat a small piece due to the fact that it is very rich. Will make again. Used store bought hot fudge (warm it in the microwave for 15-30 sec to easily spread in crust).
