The peanut butter recipe worth looking for…

I’ve made this pie before but couldn’t find the recipe for the longest time. I tried to find it online and had no such luck. Thankfully, I found it and tested it out at work today. Huge hit! There are plenty of versions of it out there, but this one is so good that there’s no reason to try any other version.

I’m also not sure who to give credit to for the recipe. It came on a recipe card that was part of a Christmas present. I’m pretty sure that it’s either from Reese’s or from Hershey’s.

*I’m pretty sure that the grocery store sells oreo pie crusts already made. They would work perfect for this recipe if you didn’t have the time to make your own crust.
2. Unwrap and chop 20 peanut butter cups and set aside.
