Frozen peanut butter pie

Today is earth day says my coworker Josh. Most would think wait earth day isn't until the 22nd... Well in Josh's mind the day he was born is Earth day. :) So in honor of Josh's birthday (earth day) I made him a frozen peanut butter cup pie. ohh so tasty peanut butter pie! yum yum yum. And yes we ate some at 9am this morning YUM. I originally made this recipe years ago and it involved all full fat and a can of sweetened condensed milk... yeah i've healthed it up a BUNCH since then :)

Frozen peanut butter pie

First make the crust
  • melt 1 cup of milk chocolate chips in a microwave safe glass bowl (1 min on high)
  • remove from microwave and stir in 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
  • grease a 8 or 9 inch pie pan and then spread warm chocolate to coat bottom and sides of pan, place in refrigerator to cool
Then make the filling
With a hand mixer beat until smooth

o 1/2 cup peanut butter
o 4 oz fat free cream cheese

Then beat in

o 1/2 cup fat free milk (add a little at a time so it doesn't splatter)

o 1/4 cup splenda (straight up splenda not the baking blend kind)

With a spatula or spoon stir in

o 8oz Cool Whip topping (I used the fat free version)

Pour into prepared chocolate crust and shave some chocolate over the top I also added some more graham cracker crumbles, freeze for at least 4 hours.
It tastes like ice cream when served frozen, or let it sit out 15 minutes to thaw a bit for a smoother texture. Also works great if you sprinkle chocolate and peanut butter chips on top and drizzle with chocolate sauce before serving!

mmmmmmmm yum!

When Josh saw it he got all giddy and danced around. He loved it woohoo!

the crust was something I tried on a total fluke and I was so happy that it came out amazing! It's very addicting with a nice thin crisp crunch to it, the crushed graham cracker crumbs complements the chocolate perfectly! I was imagining a big PB cup when I was making this, I normally just made a graham cracker crust but was inspired by the PB cup to make one out of chocolate :) Hope you like it! Let me know!
