We Made Room For Dessert 27 - Easy Peanut Butter Pie

In honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day, I thought I would post a sweet treat that is easy to make for your loved one(s). I made this in the last week and could not believe how simple it is.  I am positive it will be a household favorite.  There are only a few ingredients, and they are mostly store bought so this does not take very long at all. Simple and delicious, plus it's a time honored classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate. Yum!

Easy Peanut Butter Pie

1 ready made graham cracker crust (I used chocolate)
1 tub of whipped topping
1 cup powdered sugar

1 8oz brick of cream cheese, softened (I left mine on the counter overnight)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips

2 tbs heavy cream

Whip together cream cheese and peanut butter with a hand mixer.  Fold in powdered sugar and then beat on low for a couple minutes. Fold in whipped topping and beat on low for a couple more minutes. Pour mixture into pie crust.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.  Microwave chocolate chips and heavy cream, stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate is melted and you get a smooth consistency.  Pour over top of pie and refrigerate at least one more hour.
