Peanut Butter Cup Pie

It's pie time again and oh my gosh was this so GOOD!  I found this in the Kraft Food Magazine and knew instantly I had to make it.  Nothing is as good as PB and chocolate, at least at our house.

1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. plus 1 T. creamy peanut butter, divided
1 c. cold milk
1 3.4 oz. vanilla pudding
2 1/2 c. thawed whipped topping
1 Oreo pie crust
3 squares (3 oz.) Baker's semi sweet chocolate

* In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 c. peanut butter until well blended.  Add milk and dry pudding mix, beat 2 minutes.  Whisk in 1 c. whipped topping.  Spoon into crust and refrigerate until ready to use.

* In small bowl, microwave the rest of the cool whip and chocolate in HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.  Stir after each minute.  Cool completely.

* After chocolate is cooled, spread over pudding layer.  Microwave remaining peanut butter in small microwavable cup 30 seconds, stir and drizzle over pie.  Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.
