For Kenny’s 31st Birthday I made him a Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie because he loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. He also is not a huge fan of cake so I knew there was not point in me even making him a cake. My friend Kimberly sent me her Peanut Butter Pie recipe, but I wanted to make it more chocolaty (probably not a word). That way is would taste more like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Let me just tell you it is amazing! Kenny had to keep himself from eating the whole pie because he knew it would make him go into a sugar coma and probably end up sick! First I made an Oreo Crust, using the recipe below.
24 Oreo Cookies
1/3 Cup Butter
Crush the Oreos. You can do them more fine to get a smoother crust. I left them a little chunky because I like the crust to be thicker.
Melt the butter then slowly add it in with the Oreos. I did a little at the time and stirred around until I got the consistency I wanted.
Put the Oreo Mixture into a pie pan. I only pressed it on the bottom of the pan, not the sides. Again because I like a thick crust.
Then I put the crust in the fridge while I made the filling. Just so the crust would cool down and harden a little.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie
1- 80z. Cream Cheese Package
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Chocolate Peanut Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1- 8oz. Cool Whip Tub
25 Mini Reese’s Cups

Cream together the Peanut Butters and Cream Cheese.
Mix in the Powders and the Cool Whip. Until smooth.
Chop up about most of the Reese’s Cups. Gently stir into mixture.
Pour into the Oreo Pie Crust. Cut the other Reese’s Cups up and place on top. Chill.
Hope you enjoy this Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie recipe. It was very easy to make and would make a great surprise for your Valentine!
