Nothing to me as quite as simple and comforting as a peanut butter pie. The combination of the chocolate crust, rich peanut butter center and fluffy whipped cream are just so amazing! My whole family loves them too, so they don’t last very long in our house. And did I mention this is a no-bake pie, score!

For this pie I wanted to add a little something special so I topped it with REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups and a drizzle of chocolate. To start, I made the chocolate sandwich cookie crust just by crushing cookie in the food processor with melted butter and then pressing the crumbs into a spring form pan. Then I added the peanut butter layer and then the whipped cream layer. Then I just sprinkled on my peanut butter cups and drizzled some chocolate on the pie. That’s it, so easy!

We love to make recipes like this and enjoy them while watching basketball. Basketball has always been something I’ve gravitated to I guess since I have always been the tall girl in class. Both my husband and I loved playing on our school’s basketball teams and still love playing horse in the backyard as well as watching real athletes play it for real.
