This easy recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie is so good you may eat the whole thing or your kids may! No shame from me is this happens. I was only able to get one slice before my boys indulge and ate the whole thing. It was good and they could not stop!
I followed the recipe for Copycat Pioneer Woman Chocolate Pie for the base layer. Next I added Cool Whip and spread all over the top, then finished by adding cut up Reese Cup miniatures. My kids were in love! I asked them if they wanted me to add this recipe to our favorites and I got a thumbs up from everyone, including the hubby!
This is a great recipe for a party, potluck or baby shower. You can serve it with chocolate syrup dripped on top too! Be sure to try Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie recipe, you will not be disappointed!
