William's favorite Peanut butter pie with a chocolate shell

Peanut butter pie with a chocolate shell

1-1/4 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (20 cookies)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted

1 pre-made Keebler Oreo Cookie Crust
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter or (or chunky - I like smooth)
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 container of Cool Whip (Extra creamy)

Combine crust ingredients; press into a 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375'F for 10
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped cream or Cool Whip. Gently spoon into crust.

When the pie has chilled, make the chocolate shell and pour over the top of the pie then refrigerate until the shell has hardened.

Homemade Magic Shell
Coconut Version
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil
Butter version
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
1. Place coconut oil/butter in a small bowl along with chocolate chips. Place in microwave for 30
seconds, stir. Be careful as the bowl will get quite hot. Repeat until both are entirely melted,
creating a semi-thick sauce.
