Reese’s Fudge Pie


There are few things in this world that I can’t resist…

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 know it’s gonna be good.

I used milk chips and semi-sweet.  I’m crazy like that.

Spread your fudge onto your crust.

Now take a whole bag of Reese’s minis and push them gently into the fudge.

Now make your peanut butter mousse.  You need some cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and Cool Whip.  Again, can’t be bad.

Mix the first 3 together with a hand mixer and then fold in your Cool Whip.  Spread in on top.

If you want you can drizzle a little melted chocolate on top, but you don’t have to…it’s just for looks.

Let it chill for about an hour and then slice it and stare.  It’s a beautiful thing.

I think I maybe cried when I read this. I want to make it sooooooooo badly. Now all I need is a party to make it for because this would be DANGEROUS in my kitchen all alone. Thanks for the recipe.

Yea, so I like, NEED this.

October 14, 2011 12:09 am

Given that Reese’s are MY kryptonite as well…I’m not sure if I should make this or run for the hills. Given that I’m currently on crutches and running isn’t an option…I’m thinking making this is the key to my eternal happiness.

October 14, 2011 12:29 am

Slice and Stare? What happened to EAT IT?? I think that looks divine! Must make NOW!

Oh Lord….that looks dangerous….the good, delicious kind of dangerous. My hubby loves Peanut Butter cups as well….eats them with pizza he likes them so much…lol.
In my humble opinion I think anything made with sweet condensed milk is always something BETTER 🙂

Oh goodness, I am right there with you on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. But even more so with the Reese’s Whips. I can’t NOT eat them. I guess its a good thing they don’t sell them anywhere close to where I live. Except that….I totally just found a recipe to make them myself. I’m kind of afraid to try it though. Because then I will be eating them for pretty much every meal for the rest of my life. And then having this pie for dessert. SO GOOD looking! I can’t wait to try it!

I am in love with Reese cups too. When my first child was born we settled on our pediatrition because his last name is Reese! Not really, but he is Dr. Reese. We love him. I do think about candy every time we go to the Dr.

Hold on, I have to wipe the tears from my eyes so I can see my screen.

There. I want to eat this so badly, I’m fighting the urge to lick my computer!! I’ll be making this tomorrow, just as soon as I buy a big of Reese’s minis!!

A) Those little Reese’s PB cups should name you their Ambassador of Awesomeness
B) I totally think you could pull off undies on the outside. I have seen you in (my) mom shorts with a waistband up to your nonnies at the spry age of 18 – so yes, I think you could totally carry off the outer-undies as well.

October 14, 2011 2:18 am

reese’s minis are for wimps! bring out the big dogs!! 🙂

October 14, 2011 2:26 am

I love you and I want to marry you. K?

This would probably be like…my reason for getting out of bed tomorrow morning if it were sitting on my counter right now.

Drat, guess I’ll have to find some other motivation for my life. PB cups sure do fit the bill, though. 🙂

October 14, 2011 2:36 am

aww you do these now? these would have been great for my moms birthday, she LOVES Reeses, and it was just a few days ago. oh well, suprise dessert? i think so!

Oh. My. STARS. this is Heaven.

October 14, 2011 4:28 am

Wow. First of all, your picture is GORGEOUS. Secondly, this recipe looks so easy!! And super yummy. I hate all things pie though, so I don’t know if I can commit.

October 14, 2011 4:49 am

I don’t allow myself to buy those mini Reeses. I ate an entire bag – by myself- in less than 24 hours last time I bought some. I have no self control around them!! And this pie looks amazing. I bet I could finish it off in less than 24 hours, too!

October 14, 2011 5:42 am

There’s just no stopping you, Shelly! WOW!

October 14, 2011 5:57 am

WOW!!!! My diet just went out the window:-)

Y-I-K-E-S! I’ll bet I can get my hubby to knock off his whole honey-do list if I place this in front of him! 🙂 Thanks for sharing – looks like another winner.

October 14, 2011 12:05 pm

OMG!!! What a beauty!!

I found your blog through “that’s what she/we said”.

love Kristan’s blog and have been looking for another blogger with fun and fancy things… and here you are! Yey!!

This is a must, we don’t have Resse’s mini’s or cool whip in England so I’ll poke in some maltesers and something else moussey (haven’t decided on what yet)

Methinks the fam will be fatties after this one 🙂

October 14, 2011 12:47 pm

I just lost my s***! This is insane. I love you.

October 14, 2011 12:49 pm

All I can say is WOW! I have no words for how amazing this looks. I too am a Peanut Butter Cup addict!

October 14, 2011 5:12 pm

This is my kind of pie! Delish!

October 14, 2011 9:21 pm

Maybe we should start a support group for Reeses Addicts! This looks soooo delish!! Thanks for sharing!
