Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

 

   This recipe kinda fell in my lap. Not IN my lap literally, thank goodness, but like an AH-HA kind of moment!  When I made the Peanut Butter pie I shared yesterday, I only had a large box of pudding rather than the small it called for.  

  Sooo, I increased my milk accordingly, and when my pie was all said and done, naturally, I had extra pudding! I wasn’t ABOUT to waste it, so I looked in the pantry and saw the chocolate graham cracker crust I bought for a buck on the clearance rack.  The chocolate Graham crust was enough smaller than the other in a 9 inch pie plate pie, that it worked out perfectly!

  The recipe below is for one Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.  If you want to do two pies at once, like I did, then double the PB crumbles, and increase your milk/half and half to 2 cups.  Then follow the instructions to make this pie chocolately.  Viola, two pies!  One large Peanut Butter Pie and one smaller Chocolate Crust PB Pie from one box of pudding.  

Here is the recipe for one, large size Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie:

  1. Oh Wow! How did you know!?!? Now I can make the plain peanut butter for hubby and the choc. for me! We will all be happy!:) You can never go wrong with choc.:)

    • Tonya, I was just being curious and googled “Dear Mom with the IPhone”. Have you done that? I was shocked at all the different other blog posts about it! It really bothered me how many people took it the wrong way! I mean it is a free work to speak what you want/feel. I mean they can, why can’t you? That is what really gets me. They are so ticked off that you would write that, but then go and look at what they write. 🙂 Oh well, that was not my point in writing. I just wanted to tell you that most all of those other blogs that posted about it linked it back to you.
      I just want you to know that I love you for being you and being able to write what you think and feel the LORD is telling you to write. Cuz whether they like it or not….It needed to be said!
      Sending you my love and hugs,
      K
