Ultimate Peanut Butter Cup Pie {Recipe}

Last year my for my sister-in-law's birthday dinner she asked me to make dessert.
When I asked her what she wanted, she said, something delicious and she left it up
to me to decide what that looked like. So, I perused Pinterest in hopes of some 
dessert inspiration and I came across it in the form of peanut butter pie!
However, I couldn't find one that was exactly what I wanted (or had the ingredients for!),
so I melded the look of one, with the ingredients of another and threw in a 
Oreo cookie crust and decided I had created perfection.

It was delicious and decadent and I still dream of it to this day.
My sister-in-law just had her birthday again this year and it made me think
of this delicious peanut butter chocolate creation and so I tracked down my notes
in my recipe box and decided to share it with you all.
If you love Reese's peanut butter cups, then you will love this amazing
no-bake dessert that is perfect for the upcoming summer months.

You will need:
  • Ready-made chocolate cookie crust
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 1.5 cup powdered sugar
  • 1.5 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • peanut butter chips
  • mini peanut butter cups
  • chocolate chips
  • extra peanut butter for drizzling

1. Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy.
2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.
3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Don't over mix!
4. Pour into your cookie crust and then refrigerate until chilled. You can put it in the
freezer if you're in a hurry!
5. Use your mini peanut butter cups, peanut butter chips, and melted chocolate
and peanut butter to decorate your pie before serving. I melted the peanut butter
and then put it in a Ziploc bag, snipped off the corner and drizzled it over the top.
You can repeat with melted chocolate. I refrigerated for about 30 minutes after I
decorated it before I served it!

TOO Cute Tuesday: Linky Par-Tay! #286

pikachu pinewood derby car

If you want your son's last pinewood derby of his Cub Scout 
career to be totally memorable, 
then drive off with it on the roof of your car to go to swim practice, 
and then have it fall to the road about a mile later, 
and get smashed by who knows how many cars before you realize an hour later,
 after swim practice, when you're on your way to the Pinewood Derby,
that you don't have it and drive through Irvine to try and find it, 
and when you find it, all the wheels are smashed to smithereens, 
it has a serious case of road rash and you want to vomit. 
Maybe do that, mmmkay?

 important screenings that are not normallyincluded in regular well-child check ups.
It also connects you with great health services if anything arises during the screenings.

It will be a fun atmosphere with music, food and entertainment.
