Do I have something fun for you! I recently received a huge gift basket from Cool Whip, that was full to the brim with oodles and oodles of fabulous goodies. The idea for this gift basket was for me to create something yummy using some of the ingredients included in the basket.
Cool Whip is a product that I have used for years, and so did my mom. When you mix Cool Whip with cream cheese and powdered sugar, it makes a divine frosting, that is so versatile. It can be used as a topping for pie, a filling for a no-bake cheesecake, and for SO many other things. Generally speaking, whenever I think “Cool Whip”, the words “simple” and “easy” come to mind. Almost everything I make with it is super easy.
No-bake Peanut Butter Pie with a chocolate crust was adapted from the Cool Whip section on the Kraft site. Did I mention how much I love desserts that don’t have to be baked?? This is true, especially in the middle of summer. I appreciate not having to fire up the oven, making the already blazing hot house even hotter!).
It is so easy. After mixing all of the ingredients from the recipe, I poured the mixture into an Oreo cookie pie crust shell. Next I chilled it until it was firm.
After the pie chilled, I made the chocolate topping. Just like the filling, the topping was quick and easy. After chilling the pie a little longer, I melted peanut butter and drizzled it over the top. The end result? A fantastically delicious pie that my family gobbled up in no time at all.
Cool Whip is one of those “go-to” ingredients that should always be in your refrigerator. And cream cheese. Don’t forget that! The two are a match made in heaven, so be sure to keep both on hand when you have a hankering for this duo that works so well together.
If you haven’t been on the Kraft site, you have GOT to check out all of the recipes that use Cool Whip. They all look fabulous!
