Hey ya’ll!

Is anyone else exhausted because they stayed up late watching The Blacklist and then were too creeped out to sleep?
Oh, just me?
Ok, moving on.

The other night we were invited to the home of one of Justin’s co-workers for dinner with his family. We thought that was super thoughtful and of course asked what we could bring. Desert was requested so off I went on a hunt to find a good, easy recipe (that I could make quickly since I clearly put off to the last second).

Luckily, I had pinned this little gem forever ago
Skinny Taste No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

I made this so quickly that I didn’t have time to photograph my efforts.

Ya’ll, you have to make this! If you ever need a go to for a work pot luck or a book club, I think this recipe could really be the one. It’s quick, easy, cheap and technically not that bad for you.

Here are my notes, because of course I changed things up…


5 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup Better n Peanut Butter   I used 1/2 cup Jif Whip Peanut Butter 
8 oz fat free frozen whipped topping, thawed (or truwhip for healthier option*) I used reduced fat cool whip
reduced fat graham cracker pie crusts I used a store brand regular fatty pants crust
3 tbsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup  I chose the extra chocolate double thick sundae syrup

Ok, I clearly wasn’t concerned about the points value of this recipe.
It’s not like I promised to bring something healthy-ish, I just thought the recipe looked good and easy!


Beat cream cheese and confectioners sugar together in medium bowl
(the original recipe doesn’t specify, but I used my stand mixer)

Mix in peanut butter, beat until smooth
(even with the stand mixer kicked up a notch, this took a minute)

Fold in Whipped Topping
(I was too lazy to fold it in, I used the stand mixer and then scraped the edges with my folding device….sooo that counts as folding it in right?)

Spoon mixture into pie shell
(I ate a ton of the mixture at this point)

Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set
(uh, yeah right. I refrigerated for an hour because thats all I had left and then threw it in the freezer for the last 20 mins or so)

Right before serving, drizzle with chocolate sauce
(I clearly did this before I left the house, so probably an hour or two before it was served)

And, guess what?
It turned out perfectly!
Even the (not peanut allergied kids) loved it!
