Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie

Like a giant peanut butter cup!

1 9" oreo pie crust
1 egg white
1/2 c chocolate chips
1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 c peanut butter
1 1/2 cans sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c confectioners' sugar
1 8 oz container whipped topping

Brush crust with egg white and bake according to package directions for "crisp" crust. Place chocolate chips in a small microwaveproof bowl and heat on 50% power until melted, about 1 minute. Spread melted chocolate over bottom and up the sides of the pie crust. Refrigerate.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, peanut butter, condensed milk, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Beat in confectioners' sugar. Fold in whipped topping.

Spoon mixture into chilled pie shell. Smooth top. Return to refrigerator and chill completely before serving.

The crust was very difficult to cut. I would recommend using just an oreo or chocolate crumb crust without the melted chocolate chips. I topped the pie with reeses peanut butter cup crumbs and drizzled melted choc chips on top. That made it plenty chocolatey. The filling actually makes enough for 2 pies.

  1. Made this last night and it was delicious! VERY Sweet and rich. Mine wasn't very firm in texture so I put it in the freezer for a few minutes before serving so it didn't run everywhere. Loved it!
