Today's recipe is almost embarrassingly easy.  Yet,  people always go crazy for this pie!  I made this several times in college since it  was pretty difficult to bake anything ever, and my friends loved it.  It's like taking a no-bake cookie  and turning it into  a frozen, creamy pie.  It reminds me a little bit of an ice-cream cake...minus the cake part.  This makes a great spring/summer dessert AND it's pretty inexpensive to make.  I always decorate mine with some extra whipped cream and chocolate chips or Reese's  pieces.  Enjoy!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

(serves 6-8)

1/3 cup peanut butter
1 (8 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (4 ounce) packages single serve ready-made, fat free, chocolate pudding
1 prepared graham cracker pie crust  (I use the Oreo crusts instead)
1/2 cup chocolate & peanut butter chips for garnish (optional, but recommended!!)

In a mixing bowl, combine pudding and peanut butter; stir until smooth. Fold in whipped topping; stir until completely blended.

Pour filling into pie crust. Freeze pie until firm.  Top with optional chocolate & peanut butter chips.  Partially thaw in refrigerator, for about 2 hours or so, before serving. You can store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer.
