Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

My mom made this tonight for my birthday! :)

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
8 oz. pkg. Cream Cheese (at room temp.)
1/2 cup of Sugar
12 oz. container of Cool Whip, divided
1 prepared Oreo Pie Crust
1 11.75 oz. jar of Smuckers Hot Fudge Topping, divided

2 tbs. Hot Fudge
2 tbs. Peanut Butter

In a medium bowl, beat together peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar. Fold in about half of the whipped topping. Spoon mixture into pie shell, spreading evenly. Reserve 2 tbsp. of hot fudge topping. Place the remaining hot fudge in a microwave-safe bowl or large glass measuring cup. Microwave for 40 to 60 seconds till slightly warmed. Stir. Spread fudge topping over pie to cover the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate until serving time. Just before serving, drop dollops of the remaining whipped topping over the hot fudge layer; spread out, being careful not to mix the two layers. Place the reserved fudge topping in a small plastic bag and knead for a few seconds to warm it. Cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag; drizzle over the pie. Do the same thing with the remaining peanut butter to garnish.
