  1. 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie plate. Cool on wire rack 20 minutes.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart heavy saucepan, mix all fudge layer ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until chips are melted. Remove from heat; stir until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup fudge mixture in small microwavable bowl for drizzle; set remaining mixture aside to cool.

  4. 4 In another small microwavable bowl, microwave 3 tablespoons butter and the peanut butter chips on High 45 seconds. Stir; if necessary, continue to microwave in 10-second increments, stirring after each, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. On low speed, gradually beat peanut butter mixture into pudding mixture until combined; beat on high speed until filling is smooth and fluffy, scraping side of bowl occasionally.
