More About This Recipe
  • Chocolate, peanut butter and pie. These three things are all delicious on their own, but what if we told you that you could combine all three of them into one spectacular dish? Say hello to Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie, the answer to all of your dessert cravings. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, the not-so-secret-ingredient in this recipe, were first invented in the late 1920s by Harry Burnett Reese. In 1928, Reese began selling the chocolate and peanut butter cups, otherwise known as “penny cups,” since they cost just one penny each at the time. Now almost 100 years old, this candy continues to rate among the top 10 ten favorite chocolate treats in the United States. Pro pie tip: To spread the fudge easier in the bottom of the pie crust, slightly warm it the microwave before spreading. Leftovers—if you have any—can be stored loosely in the refrigerator for more enjoyment later. Want to know how to store this pie and other types of pie? We have all of the answers in our comprehensive pie guide.
