So this recipe came to be because I was having a HUGE peanut butter and chocolate craving! I took part of one recipe and part of another and put them together! I kind of tweaked things to my taste so don't be afraid to do the same! Enjoy!

Our taste buds fell in love with this delicious no-bake peanut butter pie. Each layer has a distinct flavor and pair amazingly with each other. Using Nutter Butter cookies for a crust is genius. They add a nice crunchiness to the pie. The crust is followed by a layer of chocolate pudding, then a creamy peanut butter filling and topped off with a chocolate mousse-like topping. A heavenly slice of pie! The Test Kitchen
