READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by evelynathens

OK, so I never really grew up and I'm STILL addicted To Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...this needs to be refrigerated for 4-5 hours atleast before serving.

Excellent! I did a couple of things differently though. I used a regular baked pie crust instead of a graham cracker crust. I pour about 1/4-1/2 cup of hot fudge over the cooled crust then chilled it in the freezer while I made the filling. I also used cool whip instead of whipping the cream and sugar (I used an 8 oz tub, reserving about 1 cup for the top). I then drizzled fudge on the top. I will definitely make this again.
