When I was a freshmen in college at BYU I lived in "dorms" (they weren't really dorms, but apartments owned by BYU that they were housing freshman in while they were renovating the real dorms). And our dorms decided to do a pie contest activity for Thanksgiving. My roommate Jenessa and I decided to enter the competition.
But we weren't going to make any regular pie, we decided to invent a pie so delicious it blow the competition away. And this is what we came up with!
At the contest we won the grand prize, which wasn't an original category. The problem was that we won all the categories, so the judges decided to make the grand prize category so other pies could win.
I'm not trying to brag, but just sell you on the idea that this pie is really good even though it is so simple. In fact when you look at the other pies, it's hard to believe that ours edged out the competition, because those other pies were super delicious!
The Dream Pie only uses 4 ingredients, and you can whip it up in about 15 minutes so it's perfect if you forgot to make a pie. It's no bake, but does need to freeze for at least an hour.

- A half cup of peanut butter is the minimum I would use. If you want a stronger peanut butter flavor you can add more.
- The crust is really crumbly, you can add butter to it to help it stick together better. Alternatively, I have wondered if using Double Stuff or Mega Stuff Oreos would help it stick together better. Try it and see!
- Toddlers make the best kitchen helpers! You just have to pay them with cookies!
Well I hope you give the pie a try and enjoy it!
But please don't feed the pie to your nut allergy friends and family. They probably would not like it.

As you can tell he is a huge jokester!
But this is how I did the swirl of fudge on top so I thought I would show you. I put the bag in a cup so I don't make a huge mess, and then just snip off a tiny bit of the corner. You can also use a pastry bag. Just be warned if you're using warm hot fudge it's not very viscous and will just pour out of the bag, so be prepared!
