Umm, does this even need words to describe? A picture says 1000 words. Especially when it’s a picture of irresistible layers of peanut butter, oreos, chocolate pudding, and hot fudge all combined into one party-ready pie!
We had our small group over last night for our annual Christmas party/white-elephant exchange and this didn’t get too much attention, mostly because we were all stuffed with vegan chili, mac and cheese, power salad, wings, and smoked salmon wraps! Not to mention meatballs and lots of cheese dip. Must I say more?
The fact is, when everyone left, I literally stood at the kitchen counter with a spoon in my hand and started scraping out all the bits of this pie to “even out the borders” where it had been cut earlier… (anyone else use this excuse?). Seconds later and I realized that I had basically eaten another full helping.
This pie must go.
Luckily, the therapy staff at work has quite a collective sweet tooth- therapist are the BEST eaters! I froze it overnight, then brought this bad boy in this morning, and it was gone by lunch. Score!
I promised the recipe to many of my co-workers, so here it is! Happy holiday partying to you and yours!
- 1 package chocolate pudding mix (sugar free or regular)
- 1 package vanilla or cheesecake flavored pudding mix
- 3 cups milk
- 1 large tub cool whip
- 1 package peanut butter oreos
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 jar hot fudge sauce
- Separate oreos and layer about half of them in the bottom of a large pan.
- Combine pudding mix in a large bowl and add milk. Whisk until thickened. Add cool whip and whisk until combined and creamy.
- Layer 1/2 pudding mixture on top of oreos evenly.
- Melt peanut butter and drizzle on top.
- Add another layer of oreos, reserving about 4 for the topping.
- Cover with remaining pudding mixture.
- Melt hot sauce for about 30 seconds or until it pours easily from the jar. Drizzle on top of pie, then run a knife through the top to make fun and fancy swirly designs! (Don’t overdo it- I always go one swipe too far and mess it up! No going back!).
- Crumble remaining oreos and add to top of pie.
- Freeze at least 4 hours or until ready to serve. Before serving, defrost at least 30 min before slicing into squares.
