Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Cake

I don't really know what to call this.  A pie or a cake?

A few weeks after I moved into my apartment at the beginning of August, my mom cut this recipe out of the newspaper and mailed it to me. 

I've wanted to try it ever since and I finally decided to make it last weekend. It's so easy. So so so easy. You don't even have to bake anything! You will need to mix some stuff up though.

This recipe is from Stephanie Parker at www.plainchicken.com

1 box of chocolate graham crackers
2 (3 1/2 ounce) boxes of vanilla pudding
1 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (8 counce) container of Cool Whip, thawed
1 can of chocolate frosting

Mix the 2 boxes of vanilla pudding, milk, and peanut butter at medium speed for 2 minutes. Then mix in the cool whip.  That's it!

First, take a 9x13 in. pan (this will work with any size pan, you will just have a lot leftover if you use a smaller one) and coat it with non-stick spray. Then cover it with the graham crackers. I broke some up so I could cover the bottom of the pan as much as I could.

Pour half of the peanut butter mixture over the graham crackers and spread it out with a spatula.

Cover it with another layer of graham crackers and peanut butter mixture.

Then top this with a third layer of graham crackers.

Next you melt the frosting.  The recipe saysyou can warm it up in the microwave with the lid off, but I dumped it in a glass measuring bowl and warmed it up in the microwave in 30 second intervals.  Then pour it over the top layer of graham crackers.

I had some left over graham crackers, so I crushed them up and sprinkled them on the top.

Finally, let it sit in the fridge over night or for at least 12 hours. 

See, super easy! :)


  1. This was pretty tasty; a nice juxtaposition between peanut butter and chocolate. You are more than welcome to make it again. :)

  2. This was absolutely YUMMY!!!

  3. That looks and no doubt is delicious. Will have to make it some time soon.

  4. If I had to choose between a pie or cake, this is definitely a pie. It wouldnt be a cake because you have the basic cake ingredients, flour, eggs, butter... and a pie has a pastry base. In this case I guess that would be the graham cracker.
