No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

It is a rainy day in the Barbie Nation...something that hasn't happened too often in the past two years of drought.  While most folks are taking advantage of the weather to sleep in, Lucy and I are have some
errands to run.  I must confess, that after several attempts at constructing a raincoat, I gave up and bought this online.  Otherwise, Barbie's clothes are   designed and handmade by me.
I'm ready for a quick and delicious dessert tonight, so it is time to roll out the peanut butter pie...a very good excuse to eat some peanut butter cups!

What a yummy combination.  Cut this pie in small slices…it is rich!
1 graham cracker crust
Heat the chocolate and milk in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and pour into bottom of crumb crust. Set aside.
⅔ cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons milk

pie filling
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
Beat cream cheese until smooth and gradually beat in sugar.
¾ cup granulated sugar
Stir in peanut butter and whipped topping.
1 cup peanut butter
3½ cups (eight ounces) cool whip
Add  peanut butter cups.
1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups* (or buy the tiny mini cups)
Stir into filling and spoon over crust.  Chill at least four hours.
* Freezing the peanut butter cups makes them easier to chop.
