"This recipe is in fact simple and delicious! It's smooth and creamy texture was luxurious and decadent. I added a drizzle of hot fudge topping to the top of the pie and I also sprinkled some mini chocolate chips on the top as well as stirred some in. It was an instant hint for dessert tonight and one of my favorite recipes from Simple and Delicious!"

"Made it for small family gathering and it was a hit! I always make my pie crusts from scratch so it took just a bit more time. Perfect cooling desert for the summer. Thank you!"

"This is the pie I make when we don't want left-overs! Perfect recipe for making a single pie. Easily can be customized to tastes with addition of any chopped chocolate, candy or nuts. Often I only stir in half the whipped topping, reserving the rest to spread on the top of the pie. As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor I found this simple classic pie delightful!"

"This pie is absolutely great just the way it is. I also used this as a base for many variations. I have added chocolate ganache to the bottom of the crust before putting in the peanut butter mixture. I have used an oreo crust and a chocolate graham cracker crust. They all turn out great. Thank you for this recipe it never disappoints!"

"This was really good and so easy to make. Everyone loved it. I made my own whipped cream instead of cool whip and used a full cup of pb. I also used a chocolate crust and topped with PB cups. I did have to add a little milk to the PB mixture to smooth it out more. I'm making it again to day but I think I'm going to try freezing it for more of an ice cream texture. Great dessert for PB lovers"

"This was a very easy recipe. I changed it by adding 1 cup of peanut butter and 8 oz cream cheese. Kept the amount of sugar and whipped topping the same. Used a larger crust. My picky husband likes it. He was afraid it would be to sweet for him. I think if I had made it exactly like recipe it would have been to sweet for him."

"I've been making this pie for years. My family loves it, and it always disappears at get togethers. I make two pies with it though. First, take two Oreo pie crusts. Second, divide peanut butter pie filling between pie crusts. Third, melt 4.4 oz. Hershey's candy bar in microwave till softened. Forth, whip 12 oz. Cool Whip into melted chocolate before chocolate begins to firm up. I use a mixer to beat it quickly. Fifth, layer chocolate mixture on top of peanut butter mixture. If desired, you can top this with a layer of Cool Whip and use your imagination to dress this up. Enjoy!!"

I packed the graham crust in each one, then a little bit of hot fudge, then poured in the mixture, topped it with cool whip and chocolate shavings. Wow!

"I had stopped making dessert for my husband because he never eats them.

Let me tell you, when I started making this, they all came running. Even the dog!
It was easy to make too.
It tastes just like eating a reese's --on a cloud my daughter said. It is rich though. We each only needed small pieces."

"Had to modify the recipe. Measured everything correctly and even used less sugar but the mixture came out way too thick to fold topping into it (yes the cream cheese was room temp) ended up adding a little half and half. Used chocolate chips and a chocolate crust. Taste was ok, not a family favorite at our house."
