Peanut Butter Pie

I made this pie over the weekend and it is delicious!! Enjoy!
 
2 1/4 cups whipping cream
1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup bite-size Reese’s  peanut butter cups (chopped)
1 purchased chocolate cookie crumb pie shell
6 peanut butter cups, halved
1 cup semi-sweet morsels
 
Melt semi-sweet morsels and pour (to cover) the bottom of the pie shell & put in fridge to set. Keep left over chocolate warm to drizzle over pie before freezing.
 
In small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of the cream, the peanut butter and 1/4 cup of the powdered sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
 
In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 2 cups cream and the remaining 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
 
Fold peanut butter mixture into whipped cream. Fold in the chopped peanut butter cups. Spoon mixture into pie shell. Top with halved peanut butter cups & drizzle left over chocolate. Freeze about 3 hours or until nearly firm. Store in fridge.
