Reese’s Fudge Pie

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

My kid’s sweet smiles.

Cheesecake.

A cute pair of shoes.

Target.

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.

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.

  1. OH MY GAWD. I would seriously run to your house right now if i knew i wouldnt die doing so. but that actually might not stop. then again…i could just make this. but yours looks freaking AMAZING! reeses love <3

  2. 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.

  3. 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 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. Oh.My.Hell.
    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!!

  6. 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.

  7. 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. 🙂

    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!

  9. 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!

    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.

  11. 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 🙂

  12. I had to read your instructions twice, because I swear it said: “Spoon your fudge into your mouth” – not “Spread your fudge onto your crust” LOL 🙂 Bookmarking!

  13. YUMMMM! I MUST try this!!! and yet again …… another recipe that I MUST try!

    (PS…. why do I keep getting this error at the bottom of every post? it says….. cURL error 6: Couldn’t resolve ‘icanhasautism.blogspot.com’ …..)

  14. I tried this recipe out last night and of course it’s hard for me to follow directions and I ended up melting the peanut butter cups with the other chocolates. Even with my goof, this recipe is REALLY good!! I will be making this again.

    This nearly killed me. Every time I ate it. So rich, so awesome. I couldn’t stop and it wasn’t pretty. Should’ve hosted a party so I would have to share more of it than just with the fam. I couldn’t make it through the first half of a piece and it took me the full day the next to get through another piece. I’m still recovering.

  16. Tammy

    I just made this for our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. It looks soooo yummy that I don’t know if I can stay out of it until then!! Should have made two!!! Can’t wait to taste!!

  17. Sarah

    Wow, this was absolutely delicious. I was a little concerned about the cream cheese and how that would taste with everything else, so I only used 6 ounces. However, it was extremely good. Oh and REALLY good at room temperature!

  18. Beverley Puna

    OMGEEE. THIS IS AWESOME. I can’t wait to try this on the girls at work. I can’t have it but I will enjoy watching everyone eat it.

  19. Kristin

    Thanks for the recipe! I made this yesterday and I thought it was good but it was way to rich with the chocolate layer in it, the mousse was AMAZING though, so if I make it again (which I most likely will) I would just eliminate the fudge layer completely and maybe do a smaller pie, or I’ll just double the mousse.

  20. Kristin

    I also forgot to mention that instead of using cool whip I whipped heavy whipping cream and sweetened it with a bit of sugar in the mousse and it turned out great!

  21. Kelly

    I love everything about this recipe except for the cool whip, just not a fan. Do you think it would turn out as well if I made my own whip cream and then folded it in?

  22. Shelby

    I made this last night for a cookout I went to this afternoon. This pie was a huge hit; everyone LOVED it! Graham cracker crust, smooth chocolatey fudge, reese’s cups, and creamy peanut butter mousse…can’t get much better than that! Thanks for the awesome recipe (:

  23. Rebecca Ednie

    I just made it in two store-bought pie crusts. Fit pretty well. Definitely would NOT fit in one! Also, I recommend cooling the fudge before adding the topping. My PB cups melted and made it tricky to spread the PB layer.

  24. Cameron

    Just made this and it is one of the best pies i have ever tasted! The choclate just melts in your mouth and it is a perfect mixture with the peanut butter mosse and the gramcracker crust. Defenatley give this recipe a thumbs up! <3

  25. I made this recipe for my husbands birthday and it is extremely rich. It’s like eating an especially rich fudge. I have a great passion for sweets but I think this recipe is “trying too hard”. The sweetness needs to be toned down, or one of the layers needs to be changed to offset the sweetness of the other. Just my humble opinion.

  26. Katharine

    Shelly! OMG I just discovered this recipe. I’ve made it and it’s sitting in the fridge, just waiting for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I am dying of anticipation. The contrast of textures, crunchy, thick and fluffy – and the combination of peanut butter and chocolate – heaven! Did I mention I changed the crust? Instead of graham crackers, Oreo cookie crust. PEANUT BUTTER Oreos, of course! Oh yes I did! I will happily slide into a sugar coma tomorrow. : ) Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  27. Patti

    I made this pie because I love chocolate and peanut butter and Reese Cups. I have a major sweet tooth, but I have to say that this was way to sweet. I also had a heck of a time cutting through this pie. The fudge layer seemed too hard to cut through. I like the concept of this pie, but it is just too rich.

  28. Julia

    Hi,
    I came across your recipe and it lools AMAZING. My bf will absolutely love it for his birthday, so thank you! 🙂
    Just one question – it says 2 tbs vanilla. What do you mean? Because it sounds a bit much for vanilla extract. (I’m not from the States, if maybe it’s a product).

  29. Skip

    So….my wife is making this pie as we speak!! I have to tell you, you just killed my diet…..and I am totally fine with that!! she even gave me the spoon she spread the fudge with!! Kinda made me feel like a kid again! Thanks for posting this recipe!!
