Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

I openly admit to being somewhat addicted to chocolate/peanut butter combinations, and this pie is certainly no exception. I received this recipe years ago from my mom, and it has been one of my favorites ever since. In fact I like this pie so much, I literally think that if I was left alone in a room with it, and no one was looking, I could eat the entire thing in one sitting. Fortunately, that situation has never arisen.

I usually use a regular baked pie crust to put the filling into, but yesterday I decided to try a graham cracker crust. They are equally delicious.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Place 2 1/2 cups milk in a bowl (whole milk gives the best results, but is not necessary). Add anywhere from 2 T. to 1/2 cup peanut butter (depends on how much you like peanut butter) (creamy or crunchy) and 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix well. Add one 6-oz. box of instant chocolate pudding and beat for 2 minutes. Pour into baked and cooled pie shell. Let sit in refrigerator before serving. Enjoy!

That is an incredible pie, easy and with two of the best ingredients in the world {pb and chocolate}. I think I will try it with the graham crust tonight. So easy!

This was SO yummy! I made it yesterday, with a bisquick crust. It was easy and the perfect summer dessert... thanks so much for posting the recipe! :-)
