  1. Beat together 1 cup peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium, until well combined. Gently mix in 3 cups whipped topping until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture into pie shell. Using a spatula, smooth mixture to edges of pie.
  2. Reserve 2 tablespoons of hot fudge topping into the corner of a resealable plastic bag. Microwave remaining topping, on HIGH (100% topping), for 1 minute. Stir. Spread topping over pie, covering entire peanut butter layer. Refrigerate until set. Spread remaining whipped topping (1 1/2 cups), over hot fudge layer, being careful not to mix the two layers.
  3. Cut a small corner from bag containing topping. Squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pie. Place remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter in a resealable food storage bag; cut bag corner and squeeze to drizzle in opposite direction from topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

This pie deserves more than five stars. My boyfriend and I found the recipe on a coupon or something at the store last summer and immediately bought all the ingredients and made it that night. It is the best! We make it several times per year. We always used to order peanut butter pie for dessert at restaurants, but don't do it anymore because this recipe is just so much better, not to mention cheaper. I like to use Neufchatel cheese and drizzle the pie crust with the fudge first. French Vanilla Cool Whip is a yummy substitution as well. Edited 5/26/10 to add: we've made this many times over the past few years. My fiance actually proposed to me while we ate this pie together! I know it's just a fluffy recipe with convenience food ingredients, but it will always be special to us.

I HATED this recipe.. I found it and was very excite dto make- But it was more like PB cheesecake then a cream pie and much too heavy.. I followed the recipe to the letter but thought it was going to have more a PB mousse texture then it did..

Very good dessert! For some reason, I expected it to be lighter, though. I didn't end up adding all the whip cream on top, because it seemed like too much, but next time I would definitely add it all. Thanks for a great recipe!

Made this pie for Thanksgiving this year and it was a big hit with both my husband, who doesn't like pie, and my daughter, who said that this pie is one of two pies she likes, the other is apple. It is very easy to make. I did add peanut butter cups that I put in the fridge and broke up on top. Will definately make it again.

I've never been a big peanut butter girl, but I chose this to make for an office Christmas party. I had to make a "test pie" before I would serve it to other people, and it was delicious! I made the second pie for the office, and when I brought it in the next day, I found it had actually gotten BETTER in the refridgerator overnight. I made it again for family Christmas dinner, and my whole family raved about what a great cook I am! This is a keeper! Every time I make it, I always feel the leftovers are the best! It's very rich, though, so only have a little piece!

I changed this up just a bit. My whipped topping container was kind of small, so I just used the whole shebang in with the peanut butter/cream cheese layer. I then spread the hot fudge topping over the top and sprinkled with chopped peanuts. I made my own chocolate wafer crust. Really awesome pie and super simple. HUGE hit, to say the least. It's super rich so cut small pieces. I was only able to eat two bites, it was really over the top. NOTE: I used reduced fat cream cheese and "free" topping and you totally can't tell. ;)
