My kid’s sweet smiles.
A cute pair of shoes.
and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Seriously…those PB Cups are literally my kryptonite. I’m not saying I am Superman. I cannot fly. I can’t change in a phone booth, not that I would want to…those things are germy. I can’t pull off a slicked back hair-do. And I most certainly do not wear my underwear on the outside of my clothing.
BUT, put PB cups in front of me and I will crumble into a weak pile of mushiness. Kryptonite.
Now, if you have been reading my site for any length of time you know I have a mild aversion to pie (unless it’s this one…OR this one), mostly because pie usually contains fruit. But I am using the word “pie” very liberally here.
Because this here recipe was made in a springform pan. AND it contains real fudge…like the kind you give away at Christmas. Come to think of it, we really need to make fudge more of a year -round treat. Let’s work on that.
So does fudge pie with Reese’s cups and peanut butter mousse sound like something you can get into? Yes, I knew we were friends.
Now, you need to use your springform pan for this.
First you make a simple graham cracker crust…you might be able to get away with using a store-bought pie crust, but I can’t guarantee it will be big enough for all your ingredients.
But we all know graham cracker crusts are simple, so suck it up.
After your crust is made, you need to make your fudge. I like a really simple fudge that has only a few ingredients, one being sweetened condensed milk..you know it’s gonna be good.
Spread your fudge onto your crust.
Mix the first 3 together with a hand mixer and then fold in your Cool Whip. Spread in on top.
Let it chill for about an hour and then slice it and stare. It’s a beautiful thing.
