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.

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  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!
