Ingredients
  

Oreo Crust:

  • 1 package (36) Oreos
  • 6 tbsp butter melted

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 container cool whip
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used semisweet)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Toppings:

  • 1 7.6 oz bag mini reese’s peanut butter cups

Instructions
 

Make the chocolate ganache:

  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and cream.
  • Microwave on high for about 1 minute or until the cream is just warm enough to melt the chocolate.
  • Stir until chocolate chips are completely melted and the ganache is smooth.
  • Set aside.

Make the oreo crust:

  • Pulse the oreos in a food processor until fine crumbs form (or place in a ziplock bag and crush).
  • Transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and stir well.
  • Press the oreo mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a deep dish pie pan.

Make the peanut butter filling:

  • In a medium bowl beat the peanut butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and cool whip on medium speed with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Spread evenly over the oreo crust.

Finishing touches:

  • Pour the ganache over the top of the peanut butter filling and spread evenly.
  • Cut each mini peanut butter cup into fourths (or throw them in the food processor and give a few pulses).
  • Sprinkle over top of the ganache.
