Chocolate Kissed Peanut Butter Pie
One bite and you'll fall in love with this delightful chocolate-kissed peanut butter pie.
20 milk chocolate Kisses candy
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 (9-inch) baked pie shell
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (6-serving size) vanilla pudding and pie filling (not instant)
1 3/4 cups milk
Sweetened whipped cream
- Melt the chocolate with the whipping cream. Stir until smooth, and spread evenly over the bottom of the pie shell. Refrigerate until ready to fill; chocolate should be firm before filling.
- Put the dry pudding mix and peanut butter in a heavy saucepan. Over low heat, gradually stir in the milk using a wire whisk. Stir constantly until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Cool for 15 minutes, stirring often.
- Pour peanut butter filling into crust. Chill several hours.
- Serve garnished with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and chopped peanuts if desired.
