" This recipe has a wonderful combination of a chocolate and peanut butter. It's simple and inexpensive. I make this pie for a restaurant owned by my mother, and we receive many compliments and even requests to purchase whole pies. You can also use chocolate pudding; the pie tastes like peanut butter cup candy. For a really spectacular presentation, garnish with whipped cream, peanuts, and chopped peanut butter cups. "
 
Ingredients
  • 20 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
   
Directions
1  

Melt the chocolate with the whipping cream. Stir until smooth, and spread evenly over the bottom of the pie shell. Refrigerate until ready to fill; chocolate should be firm before filling.

2  

Put the dry pudding mix and peanut butter in a heavy saucepan. Over low heat, gradually stir in the milk using a wire whisk. Stir constantly until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Cool for 15 minutes, stirring often. Pour peanut butter filling into crust. Chill several hours.
