"This pie was really yummy when paired with a scoop Belgian chocolate ice cream. You only need a small piece as it is very rich. I used a regular pastry crust that I baked off first and cooled. I also used miniature Reese's and it looked and tasted wonderfully!"

"Great recipe, easy to throw together and well received by those lucky enough to eat it. Liked the candy garnish. May add a layer or swirl of chocolate sauce/hot fudge and some peanuts next time. Will make again for sure."

"This is my grandsons favorite pie. He always asks me to make it for every holiday. I don't mind because it is so easy to make. I use my food chopper to chop up the peanut butter cups."

"Love this pie!!! Super quick and easy to make. I speed up the cooling time by putting it in the freezer for half an hour, then switch it to the fridge because I'm too impatient to eat it!"

"This was such an amazing pie. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar and the filling was perfect! I topped it with a thin layer of whipped topping and I only used 8 peanut butter cups in total, 4 for inside and 4 on top!! Yummy! Thanks for the recipe!"
