Peanut Butter Cup Pie

I can put this pie together in 10 minutes and just pull it out of the freezer when we're ready for a scrumptious dessert. Feel free to substitute different flavors of pudding mix and candy bars, such as butterscotch pudding and Butterfinger candy bars. —Tammy Casaletto, Goshen, Indiana

    This was okay. I used mini PB cups and chopped them in my chopper. Probably should have used regular size PB cups and chopped them by hand. I will try this again, but maybe make my own crust with Oreos or just graham cracker crumbs.

    Love this recipe - so easy and so yummy! One of my favorite combinations is actually one package of vanilla pudding mix and one small package of white chocolate with heath chocolate bars.

    After seeing this recipe on a calendar I received from TOH, my future daughter-in-law requested that I make is last Thanksgiving. It was a big hit and of the 5 pies I took to dinner it disappeared first. It was the easiest pie I have ever made and I already have requests to bring again this year.

    Wow! Easy to make. The kids loved it and asked if I would make it again. What could be better.

    I love to cook, but I never seem to have much luck with deserts until I tried this pie. Super easy and super delicious! My pie came out looking just like the picture.

    I love this recipe so much! I have probably made it over 100 times. I like it best with the butterscotch and Butterfingers, but my son loves the chocolate version. Thanks so much for sharing!
