    This pie is absolutely DELICIOUS! I've made it twice and both times everyone asked for the recipe. I serve it frozen - it is a bit sweet, will try next time to use half the sugar...but it is amazing - I love the fact that it makes 2 pies, so convenient and this recipe is super easy and quick.

    I decided to make this for my friend's birthday hoping it would be as good as everyone has said and boy are they right! This was outstanding. I will definitely make it again. I did as the other reviews said and left out the sugar and froze it. If you love peanut butter this is the pie for you!

    Definitely omit the powdered sugar because it is quite sweet on its own. I substituted the cream cheese for the fat-free version and it still came out great! Frozen is the way to go, as recommended. I used both pies-- one for my husband's family and mine, and needless to say, there are no leftovers here! The drizzled chocolate makes it look very stylish on the plate-- making them think you bought it at a store.

    This was delicious, and I don't even like peanut butter! I made it for my husband and he loves it. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and omitted the powdered sugar. (The pie is so sweet, I cannot imagine it with the sugar.) I also drizzled Hershey's Light Syrup on top. I keep it in the freezer and it tastes like an ice cream pie.

    I agree with everyone else on this recipe. I served this to 6 guests and got raves, they were talking about it the next day. It paired nicely with the red wine we were having! Huge Hit! They thought I planned it... I did leave out the sugar as others suggested...they were right, plenty sweet. I was afraid it would be too hard after leaving it in the freezer, but it wasn't, even the next day, it cut easily.

    This pie was great. It was super easy to make and kept well in the fridge and freezer. It thawed quickly, and was not very good once it was warm, but that is the only complaint! I will definitely be making this again.

    This recipe was very good. It was easy to make and it was a big hit at the family gathering I brought it to. They preferred it to our classic pecan and pudding pies. I froze it and I think that made it taste richer and I skipped the chocolate syrup because chocolate shavings I think are prettier and more convenient. I did decrease powdered sugar to 2/3 cup and it was fine. Will definitely be making this for Thanksgivings and Christmases.

    So delicious!!My fiancee and his mom loved loved loved them.I did do some things different with the pies.Like suggested by other reviews, I omitted the powdered sugar and the filling was definitely sweet enough with the other combined ingredients.I made the pie crusts myself with chocolate grahams, so I omitted the chocolate syrup on the pie.I thought the chocolate syrup looked very grocery bakery-ish and I didn't want that.I wanted them to look homemade.Then I crushed unsalted, dry roasted peanuts and sprinkled them on top for a garnish and a little more crunch.I also used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy, which gave it a nice texture and crunch.

    Bakergirlmd-if you want to submit your own recipe, please do so but don't tell others to try yours instead. We are supposed to be rating this pie, not yours.

    Every time I make this, everyone raves about it! Absolutely delicious!! I do cut the amount powdered sugar in 1/2.

    Tastes exactly like Reese' pieces, except light and fluffy instead of hard-shelled candy! Might try with real pie crust instead of graham cracker crust next time.

    Excellent recipe and super easy. I put in 1/2 the powered sugar called for when I made it and I will leave it out entirely next time. I served it frozen and it was a hit.

    This was amazing! The only problem was the portion size - it's really hard to stop with one piece! I couldn't find low-fat sweetened condensed milk, so I used low-fat evaporated milk and only used 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and that was plenty sweet enough. I also used an 8 oz package of frozen whipped topping instead of 12 oz, and that seemed to be just fine.

    This is to die for! Granted, couldn't find fat free condensed milk or low fat graham cracker crust - or low fat peanut butter - LOL! The only one I could find was the Free Cool Whip and cream cheese, but I bet it would still be great! Froze the 2nd one, a real keeper!

    This was a HUGH hit with my family!! Easy and delicious!! Like other reviewers left out powdered sugar. Do NOT need it!! Plenty sweet with just the condensed milk. Also used Oreo crust. Froze, drizzled with chocolate & caramel syrup and sprinkled with few chopped pecans. It is rich so don't need big piece although my son ate two large pieces! Will definitely be making again!!

  • Toby000 Posted: 06/06/14

    Easy to make if your cool whip is thawed & cream cheese very softened, skip the sugar; couldn't find low fat graham cracker crust. Not sure the chocolate is worth buying - other than for decoration. Best frozen, very satisfying.
