Creamy GooGoo Peanut Butter Pie
1 9-inch chocolate graham pie crust
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 8oz containers frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters
Using a sharp knife, chop Goo Goo’s into small pieces. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in one container of whipped topping. Once combined, stir in 3/4 of chopped Goo Goos and spoon mixture into pie crust. Spread remaining container of whipped topping on top of peanut butter mixture and sprinkle with the remaining chopped Goo Goo. Chill pie for at least 2 hours before serving*
*For a firmer pie that’s more similar to ice cream, chill in the freezer. For a softer pie that’s similar to pudding, chill in the refrigerator.
