What You’ll Need For This Recipe:

Reeses pieces, chopped and whole

A Whole Carton of Cool Whip

1 1/2 peanut butter

3 tbsp of unsalted butter

A package of cream cheese

1 cup heavy cream

1 ½ cups chocolate chips

This pie was super, super rich and will definitely satisfy any sweet tooth. To start off, put a whole pack of Oreos into a blender. Make sure there aren’t any big chunks before pouring it into a medium-sized bowl. Add in your butter and stir. Next, press against the pie pan to make the crust. We like to use the edge of a measuring cup to make sure it’s compact and fits into the sides. We like to put my crust in the fridge or freezer while we make the filling so that it can set!

For the filling, mix together cream cheese, cool whip and peanut butter. Put this mixture on top of your crust and smooth over the top.

Next, you’re going to make a ganache-type glaze. In a saucepan, pour in your heavy cream  on medium high heat. Get your heavy cream to boil but pull the pan off the heat once the initial boiling point is reached! Place your chocolate chips in a small bowl and pour in your heated cream. This should melt your chocolate chips! You can add more chocolate chips if you’re wanting a thicker consistency. It all depends on your preference! Stir until smooth. 

Gently pour the ganache over your pie! Decorate with pieces of Reeses or chocolate chips. Let the pie rest in the freezer for at least an hour to settle. We recommend letting the pie sit out of the freezer for at least an hour before serving! This pie is super dense so it’ll be easier to cut that way.
