Dessert so easy the kids can make it!

Want an easy chocolate and peanut butter dessert that everybody will love? And it's so easy that the kids can make it from start to finish. No cooking required. No hot oven to turn on. A cool, refreshing dessert that the whole family will love.

Okay, so you've probably heard of a no bake chocolate pudding pie recipe topped with whipped topping...? Well, this recipe is all that plus a secret ingredient. It's not really a secret that chocolate goes perfectly with peanut butter, so we're adding peanut butter to this cool, delicious, no bake pie.This chocolate pudding peanut butter pie is great for summer, as it's served cold, directly from the refrigerator. Requiring no cooking or baking, it keeps the kitchen from getting hot, and the steps involved in putting it together are simple and safe for children of all ages to do. Mixing ingredients, filling a pie crust, smoothing and sprinkling--all activities that are fun and easy.

Few ingredients! Don't forget the peanut butter, as I almost did!

Ingredients for Chocolate Pudding Peanut Butter Pie

  • 1 1.4 oz. package dry chocolate pudding, (such as Jello brand)
  • 1 3/4 cup milk, cold
  • 1 pie crust, graham cracker or Oreo
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, softened
  • 4 oz. or more whipped topping, softened
  • chocolate spinkles
Spread peanut butter quickly! The peanut butter here is already starting to harden.

Instructions

  1. Mix dry pudding packet with milk. You can use a wisk if you prefer, but I think that mixing with a beater for two minutes makes the pudding smoother and thickens it more quickly. Plus, kids love to use a mixer; it feels as though they are really cooking. Ask me, as the official cake baker of all the birthdays in my family at the tender age of ten years old! After a good mixing, set the pudding aside.
  2. Open up graham cracker crust. Actually, I prefer the chocolate crust. Purchase one or crush up Oreos (or other chocolate sandwich cookies) with some melted butter (about 2 Tbs. or so) to make your own. Just mix and press into a pie pan. If your store-bought crust has a plastic cover, save it. Turned upside down, it will make a great lid once you're finished.
  3. Soften peanut butter for 30 seconds in the microwave. This will make spreading the peanut butter much easier. Spread onto crust and up sides very quickly as peanut butter won't take long to start solidifying.
  4. Pour pudding over peanut butter and spread until smooth. Put in refrigerator to set for at least an hour.
  5. Add about half a tub of whipped topping that has been softened at room temperature. Put more if you'd like!
  6. Who wants to spread the chocolate sprinkles? Sprinkle on top of whipped topping, using as much as you--or the kids--want!

      peachpurple--another great chocolate recipe! All desserts have sugar. I would say just limit the servings if you're worried about them getting too much sugar. :-)

      Thanks, Audrey! I like not having to make the crust, but homemade crust is good, too!

      This looks very similar to one that I have made. The only difference is that we do bake the crust part! :)

      Peanut butter alone makes me want to try this. The fact that it's no bake makes it even great.
