It’s Christmas eve, friends! I know everyone has a lot going on with family, wrapping presents, sleigh bells, and getting ready for Santa, but I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas with one last very easy holiday dessert that’s a family favorite!
This is my hijacked version of Aunt Mary’s Peanut Butter Pie.
Yeah. Totally guilty. Cool Whip and Hershey’s syrup. Don’t judge me.
I told you it’s easy. No joke. I hijacked Aunt Mary’s recipe by doubling it and making it with a chocolate graham crust in a spring form pan, but you can totally half everything and throw it into a prepared regular pie crust.
So if you need a quick, easy, and last minute dessert to bring to your Christmas festivities, I got your back. DO IT, YO! Or DO IT! HO HO HO!
This is what was left after my family got their hands on it.
Merry Christmas, y’all!
