Shopping Around the World

29 Sep

Welcome my friends to another wonderful edition of Shopping Around the World.  I want to thank my cousin Teddy for hosting Shopping Around the World for the past couple of months.  We really appreciated the help with everything going on here at the Hotel Thompson and mom/dad deciding to travel across the world for vacation… leaving us anipals with family members and not taking us with them… snorts with piggy laughter.  I’m just sayin’.  I could have been mom’s service pig.  Right?  But I digress from what is scheduled on the calendar today.

Today my cousin Teddy decided Shopping Around the World would dessert.  Who doesn’t love dessert, right?  And mom has a special dessert that she fixes that knocks all of us over here at the Hotel Thompson.  Yes it is that good – good enough to guarantee to put at least five pounds on your exterior.  Just ask daddy – ha!

Well my friends without further ado, take it away mommy! ❤

Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust – $1.50; Jif Peanut Butter, smooth – $2.50; Lite Whip Cream – $1.00; Cream Cheese – $1.00; and Confectioner’s Sugar – $3.29; Reese’s Mini Cups – $.69= $9.98

Now you really can’t say this easy Peanut Butter Pie cost $10.00 to make because it didn’t.  You’re not going to use the entire jar of peanut butter or the entire bag of confectioner’s sugar.  With that in mind, I would guess perhaps around $5.00.  And the Reese’s Mini cups are optional.  Mom just thinks they look pretty decorated on the finished pie.  And yes she got the mini cups because the paper is already taken off of them – that’s right.  Mom goes for easy – easy to eat while decorating the pie that is – snorts.

Directions from mom for Easy Peanut Butter Pie:

Make sure that the cream cheese and cool whip are at room temperature.  Mix the cream cheese (1 package), 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar and 1/2 cup peanut butter until smooth.  Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.  Spoon the mixture onto the chocolate graham cracker crust.  You can use regular flavor graham cracker – the chocolate just kicks it up a bit.

Please the remaining whip cream topping over the pie.  Now we garnish with chopped up Reese’s peanut butter cups.  This is optional.  You can also drizzle with chocolate.  Chill for at least two hours or overnight.  Now, I would like to say that this picture is what mine looked like.  We made the pie.  Popped it in the fridge overnight and then after dinner the next night we had some friends over and ate the pie…. without taking a picture of it!  Of course, that could have given us an excuse to make another 🙂 winks.

    Yum! I know I would find it too sweet for me, but the idea of it makes me drool uncontrollably!

      It can be sweet. I’m sure there could be substitutions. But mom says once in a while, it is a welcomed dessert here. XOXO – Bacon

    That looks very good except I think I would choose the full-fat whip cream because real fat tastes so good. 🙂

    Your recipe looks fab. This edition brought back memories of one Christmas, when my late, unlamented second husband decided to give probably 10 pies as gifts…Mama made the pies. She said she thought her food processor was going to run away from home, but she got ‘er done. Then she told him NEVER AGAIN 10. Maybe one or two.
    Mama hopes everyone tries this pie because it is so good. Your pal Fiona
