Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie - My Tuesday Treat

Once Upon a time there were 2 best friends Chocolate and Peanut Butter. They have a deep and mutual appreciation for one another. Peanut Butter has stood beside Chocolate through the bitter and the sweet moments. Chocolate has been there through the chunky and smooth times for Peanut Butter. Together they are perfect.

One day Chocolate decided that it was in love with Peanut Butter. Peanut Butter decided that it loved Chocolate back. They decided that they wanted to spend Eternity together. They got married.  They started a family. They had little Peanut Butter Cups.

One of those cups grew up to be Mousse Pie!

Lets talk about this mousse pie.

25 Oreos
1/2 Stick Butter - Melted
1 1/2 C Peanut Butter
1- 8oz pkg Cream Cheese - softened
1 1/4 C Powdered Sugar
1 - 8oz Tub Cool Whip - Thawed

It starts by putting 25 Oreos in a blender. I lied. Preheat your oven to 350, and then put your cookies in the blender.

Once they are all crumbled, drizzle in your melted butter. Pulse a few time. Once the crumbs are evenly coated with butter, pour out into your pie dish.

Starting in the center, working our way to the edges, press firmly your crust mixture into the pie dish. Place in the oven and let bake for about 7 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl whip together your cream cheese and peanut butter. It will look something like this when done.

It will be smooth and thick.

Then you will add in your powdered sugar. Once that is well blended, you will mix in your cool whip. Beat the mixture until it is light and fluffy.

Pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve cold.

Now back to our story.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter are very proud of their family. They Love their children and the way they have grown. One of their Peanut Butter cups is engaged to Marshmallow Fluff. They are very excited to be grandparents to the little fudge-lings but that is a different Tuesday Treat.
