Peanut Butter is such a fun ingredient. You can put it in just about anything or mix it with anything, and it always tastes wonderful. I was reading about peanut butter a few weeks ago, and I had no idea that it’s a purely American thing. The rest of the world thinks we’re crazy because we love it so much.
Today is the monthly Peanut Butter Bash! This time our ingredients were peanut butter and graham crackers. My immediate thought was PIE with a graham cracker crust. I came up with a delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie. What’s better than a peanut butter pie? Definitely a No-Bake one you can make in less than 10 minutes!
I stumbled across chocolate chip cookie dough flavored pudding mix at the store recently, and I had to buy it. It’s an instant pudding mix you can find at Walmart, and it takes just a few minutes to set up.
Simply add 2 cups of cold milk and whisk until it’s mixed. Then, put it in the fridge or set it aside for a couple minutes, and it thickens all by itself. I didn’t even put it in the fridge.
When it’s thick, mix in some mini chocolate chip cookies. The package comes with a few, but I added about 1/2 cup of my own.
You can make this in a big graham cracker crust or these little tart-sized ones. I think the brand I always see is Keebler, and it comes with 6 little ones.
Next, you’ll just fill up each little tartlet. I just did it by the spoonfuls and eyeballed it, but it’s probably between 1/3 cup and 1/2 cup of pudding each. And, there’s plenty of pudding leftover. You could probably buy 2 sets of the little mini crusts and fill them up as well.
Now, this is my favorite part. I whipped up some amazing peanut butter mousse. Oh man was this good. I was eating it by the spoonfuls. I completely made this recipe up, and it came out perfect. It’s 1/3 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 2 cups of whipping cream. Just beat it in the electric mixer on high until peaks form.
Next, you’ll pile it high on top of the chocolate chip cookie dough pudding. Then top with a little bit of mini chocolate chips. The recipe is below:
