PieDay Friday-Peanut Butter Halloween Pie

This pie is nothing but a delicious base for gaudy and fun Halloween candy! Yes it tastes great, but the real treat is decorating the top. I used a gummy bat, gummy worms, hard candy skulls and chocolate drizzled caramel corn. You can use whatever you like or nothing at all. Even better,  put out all kinds of candy and let everyone help decorate it.
This is such a quick and easy pie for a last minute dessert. If you purchase the crust, the "baking" time from start to finish is about 5 minutes.

The aesthetics of the pie will delight the kiddos and the taste (of the pie minus the candy) will delight everyone!


Tips:
  • All of the candy I used (except the caramel corn) I purchased at Walmart for a combined total of $3.
  • Oreo and Keebler both make chocolate cookie crumb crusts. You can find them in the baking aisle of most grocery stores.
  • Even (perhaps, especially) if you don't decorate the top of the pie, it still tastes great.





Peanut Butter Halloween Pie

1 chocolate cookie crumb crust
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 container 8oz Cool Whip
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping, optional
Various candy decorations if desired.

Mix together cream cheese and peanut butter. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until well blended, scraping the bottom if necessary. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour caramel topping into bottom of chocolate cookie crust and spread evenly. Spoon peanut butter filling on top of caramel. Decorate as desired.
