How To Make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie
Step 1. Add 2 cups of chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp of vegetable shortening into a small glass heat-safe bowl. Place into the microwave to melt in 30-second increments. Make sure to mix between each interval until fully melted. Add into a 10-inch tart pan and coat the entire base and sides of the pan. Place into the fridge to set.
Step 2. Add the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and softened butter into a large bowl and combine until smooth. Put the mixture into the prepared chococlate-coated pan and spread it out evenly. Add the rest of the chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp of shortening into a bowl and melt like before.
Step 3. Pour on top of the peanut butter filling and use a spatula to spread it out evenly. Make sure the chocolate covers the entire surface of the peanut butter mixture. Place Reese’s pie into the fridge to chill for approximately 1 hour. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
Best Way To Decorate This Reese’s Pie?
You can use a variety of things to decorate this pie to make it pop. I like to add things like sprinkles or nonpareils to add color. You can also add bits of candy, chococlate chips, or shavings on top, or serve with fresh whipped cream. Things like caramel sauce or chocolate sauce are good options to drizzle on top.
How To Store Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie?
Place the leftover Reese’s Pie in an airtight container for the best storage method. You can keep this recipe at room temperature. However, to make it last as long as possible, I like to store it in the fridge or freezer.
