Grandpa's Peanut Butter Pie

Is there any better combination than peanut butter and chocolate. I think NOT! This pie is sooooo good. My grandpa made it for me when I went to visit. He found this recipe on . He knows of my love of PB and chocolate. It's nice and cold and full of smooth peanut butter. I may or may not have eaten if for breakfast the next morning....

1 c. and 2T. creamy peanut butter
1- 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. sugar
1 - 12oz. container whipped topping
1 prepared chocolate pie crust
1 - 11.5oz. jar of hot fudge ice cream topping

  1. Beat together 1 cup peanut butter, cream cheese, and sugar until well combined.
  2. Gently fold in 3 cups of the whipped topping.
  3. Spoon mixture into pie crust and smooth filling to edges with a spatula.
  4. Reserve 2 Tablespoons of the hot fudge topping in the corner of a resealable sandwich bag to pipe onto the top later. Microwave remaining hot fudge for 1 minute and stir.
  5. Spread hot fudge topping over pie.
  6. Refrigerate until set.
  7. Spread remaining whipped topping over hot fudge layer being careful not to mix the two layers.
  8. Cut a small corner from the bag containing the reserved hot fudge topping. Pipe over top of the pie.
  9. Put the remaining 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter in a another resealable sandwich bag, cut a small corner out and pipe the peanut butter over the top of the pie.
