"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."

"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!"

"This recipe makes an incredibly rich and delicious pie! I made a few adjustments that I feel make it a little better; I used 1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar instead of a full cup because the whipped cream and the peanut butter itself adds a lot of sugar. This made it less glaringly sweet. I also used just a little bit more peanut butter and a full cup of whipped cream. Turned out Great! And, buy the small bags of mini peanut butter cups that are with the candy at the check stands in the grocery store; its economical and their small size quartered is perfect!"
