Peanut Butter Cup Pie

image001

When you’re on the road as much as I am you have to get inventive with your desserts! This off-season I worked out a lot and lost a good bit of weight, but every once in a while I still like to enjoy a nice after dinner treat. This is a quick and easy one I make on the road, that doesn’t take much to make and ALWAYS impresses the people I’m hanging around with. The ingredients are simple to get, it’s cheap to make, and I think you’ll like it a lot.

Ingredients: 10 regular sized peanut butter cups, 2-8oz containers of Cool Whip, 1 pre-made graham cracker piecrust (optional: Cocoa dusted almonds, olive or canola oil)

Tools: Spoon or mixer, saucepan, large mixing bowl

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cool time: 2 hours

Turn on medium heat with a small saucepan. You can add a teaspoon of your desired oil to help with sticking if necessary.

Dump 10 Reese's cups in and stir while it melts. It is really important that you constantly stir so the peanut butter cups do not burn.

Dump the cool whip and melted peanut butter cups into a bowl and continue stirring to not allow it to harden. It needs to be thoroughly mixed before you finish mixing.
