Have I gotten your attention?  Good.  Well then, your next mission, should you choose to accept it, and you WILL choose to accept it, is to make this delicious pie.  I checked out many different pie recipes, but none of them were exactly what I was going for.  I ended up using some techniques from several different recipes to come up with this.  And yes, it was EXACTLY what I was craving.  And now it is EXACTLY what you are craving.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

1 chocolate cookie pie crust
8 oz cream cheese (I used a "whipped" variety because that's what I had on hand)
1/2 C peanut butter
1 1/4 C powdered sugar (Confectioner's Sugar) - Divided
1 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 C hot fudge ice cream topping (note: it should not be hot)

Start by spreading the fudge topping into the bottom of the cookie pie crust. Spread out as evenly as possible, and place in fridge or freezer to set a bit while you mix the filling.

Place the cream cheese, peanut butter, and 1 C of powdered sugar into a mixing bowl.  Beat together until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. 

The mixture will be a bit dense.

Note: As I only have one bowl for my electric mixer, I then moved the peanut butter mixture into another clean bowl, and washed the mixer bowl, so I could go onto the next step.  Make sure if you DO have to wash out your bowl, that you cool it off with ice cold water AFTER you wash it, so that the bowl isn't too hot when whipping the cream.

Next, whip the heavy cream until stiff.  (I actually had a whole pint that I had to use up, so I whipped 2 cups of cream.)  Fold HALF of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture, as gently as possible. 

Pour the vanilla, and 1/4 C powdered sugar into the mixer with the remaining whipped cream, and whip together for a moment to incorporate, again scraping the bowl as needed.

Take your crust out of the fridge, and start to layer the peanut butter mixture on top of it.  I found that the best way to do this was to place several big scoopfuls around the crust, and then smooth them out.  Once your peanut butter layer is smooth, you can add on your whipped cream layer.  If you are feeling fancy you can put the whipped cream into a pastry bag with a star tip, and pipe it onto your pie.  I was not feeling that fancy, so I just artfully spread mine with a spatula, making sure to cover evenly and artfully space my swirls.

I was however feeling *JUST* fancy enough to top my creation with chocolate shavings.  I buy lots of Moser Roth chocolate bars at Aldi, because not only are they amazing, but they also come packed in 5 tiny bars, which are perfect for a small treat, or to use to top desserts.  I just grated mine with the smallest sized grater I have.

Now comes the hard part, you must place the pie in the fridge for at least two hours to set up. 

When you give into temptation, it will look like this inside.  Notice the side on the left cut cleaner than on the right.  That's because my husband gave in BEFORE the two hours was up, and it was a little soft where he made the first cut.  If you do let it sit, you'll have pretty layered slices.  If you don't, it will still taste phenomenal.

I made something similar to this that I found off th hershey's website, and OH MAN, is it ever good!!!  It's super rich so you can actually get away with cutting them into 16 pieces in stead of 8.  I gave that recipee to a freind, and she won 2nd place in a contest with it.  It's that good.  Would have gotten first, but the first place winner had spent days making her cake.

I saw something super similar on Semi-Homemade on Food Network. It looked delicious, but I was doubting it since Sandra Lee made it.

Glad to know it really is delicious.  Cheesy

You know, I think people give Sandra Lee too much flack.  I have tried a few of her things, and they've always come out great.  In fact, I've had people beg me for my Thanksgiving Turkey recipe, which came straight from Semi-Homemade.  She's not a "chef" and she doesn't pretend to be one.  All she's trying to do is help busy moms get something fun and different dinner on the table every night.  Not all of us can be stay at home mom's, and not all of us have hours and hours to put into something out of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  Sometimes it's hard to think up new things on your own.  I love that she always wants you to be able to make something special for a loved one, without spending all day in the kitchen missing the party, instead of with your family and friends.
