Triple Layer Peanut Butter Brownies

Yesterday was the Blue and Gold banquet for cub scouts. This year we had a pie contest. Not being a big dessert maker Alex, Tyler, and I had to get creative. Tyler made a yummy mint chocolate chip ice cream pie with a rice krispie crust. Alex and I found the following recipe in my kraft foods magazine. We made it in a pie pan and it was sure a hit last night. Thought I would share the recipe:

Total Time: 2 hr 10 min

Makes: Makes 32 servings.

What You Need!

1 pkg. (19 to 21 oz.) brownie mix(13x9-inch pan size)
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
3 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate (we just used chocolate chips)
1/2 cup PLANTERS Dry Roasted Peanuts, coarsely chopped

Make It!

PREPARE and bake brownies in 13x9-inch pan as directed on package; cool. Meanwhile, beat milk and pudding mix with whisk 2 min. Add peanut butter and sugar; mix well. Refrigerate until brownies are completely cooled.

SPREAD pudding mixture over brownies.

MICROWAVE COOL WHIP and chocolate on HIGH 1 min., stirring every 30 sec. Spread over pudding; sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate 1 hour.

No wonder I was so confused on the phone...I thought you said you were making a "tie" shaped pie. Looks yummy, and looks great in regular squares. I thought it was some strange scout thing....
