Quick, easy, and delicious. COOL WHIP Whipped Topping finds itself on our family's table all year round. I can remember back to being a kid and at every family event someone made Pistachio Fluff, did you ever have that or was it just our house? COOL WHIP was served every Thanksgiving and Christmas with delicious pumpkin or pecan pie and also summer's apple and berry pies. COOL WHIP isn't just for pies though. I enjoy a little dollop on my fresh berries. Sweet summer berries make an easy dessert during the week and our family can't get enough of them!
In true zoo style we celebrate everything so the first day of summer break deserved it's own little party. I am going to share a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie recipe that I really love. Super easy to make and it is a hit with the kiddos. It was rainy and yucky outside and the girls didn't get to play like they wanted to but knowing the pie was coming for "bessert" that night gave them something to look forward to.
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping - mostly softened
Chocolate Ice Cream - mostly melted
Peanut Butter Chips
Chocolate Pie Crust
Then assemble the pie - first up most of the peanut butter chips
On to the mostly melted chocolate ice cream
Top it off with COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and the rest of the peanut butter chips
Now freeze! Sometimes I freeze it overnight sometimes (like this time) I freeze it for the day (approximately 5 hours). And Enjoy!
Prep time on the pie was about 5 minutes. The hard part is waiting until it refreezes to dive into it! Chocolate, peanut butter, ice cream, and COOL WHIP - it doesn't get any better than that! You can mix and match chips and ice cream to make up your own personal COOL WHIP pie. I saw mint chips at the store that would be fantastic with a mint chocolate chip ice cream. COOL WHIP also has 2 flavored Season's Delight varieties, Sweet Cinnamon and French Vanilla, that you could get really creative with. I could just dunk a wafer cookie in the Sweet Cinnamon and my sweet craving would be satisfied.
Yummy treats don't have to be difficult or time consuming and COOL WHIP helps you make them easily.
