If you love peanut butter and chocolate, you will love this pie. It tastes like a frozen Reese’s peanut butter cup and is even shaped like one. Oh, and it’s super easy to make. There are only seven ingredients — three of which are peanut butter, chocolate and Cool Whip — and you don’t have to cook anything. Honestly, the hardest part of the whole recipe is waiting for it to freeze.
