* 8 oz. cream cheese (at room temperature)
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 4 1/2 cups (12 oz. container) cool whip, divided
* 1 11.75 oz. jar hot fudge topping, divided
* 2 Tb hot fudge
* 2 Tb peanut butter
—In a medium bowl, beat together the peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar. Gently fold in 3 cups whipped topping. Spoon mixture into the pie shell. Using a spatula, smooth mixture to edges of pie.
—Reserving 2 tablespoons of hot fudge, place remaining hot fudge into microwave safe bowl or glass measuring cup. Microwave for 1 minute.Stir. Spread hot fudge over pie to cover the peanut butter layer.
—Refrigerate until serving time.
—Just before serving, spread the remaining whipped topping (1 1/2 cups), over hot fudge layer, being careful not to mix the two layers.
—Place the 2 tb of fudge in a small baggie and knead for a few seconds. Cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle over pie. Do the same with 2 Tb of peanut butter.
