This recipe has a wonderful combination of a chocolate
and peanut butter. It's simple and inexpensive. You can also use chocolate
pudding; the pie tastes like peanut butter cup candy. For a really spectacular
presentation, garnish with whipped cream, peanuts, and chopped peanut butter
Makes 1 - 9 inch pie (8 servings).
20 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 3/4 cups milk
1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
1 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.
2 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.
3 Top with whipped topping and chopped peanuts if desired.
