    Linda Stahl, Director of the Hershey Kitchen demonstrates how to make a easy Easter pie.

    Linda Stahl: Hi, I'm Linda Stahl from Hershey's kitchens. You don't need to be an experience chef to make a delicious dessert for Easter. Today I'm going to show you how to make an easy Easter pie.

    You will need 20 Reese's miniatures peanut butter cups and the first thing we want to do them is to cut each one of those into six small pieces. So mine have already been unwrapped and you are going to find that as you are cutting them, there will some crumbling but that doesn't matter. So our peanut butter cups are chopped and ready to go. Now we are going to take our Herchey's kisses milk chocolates, put them in to microwave safe bowl, we're going to then microwave for one minute at a medium setting. If they still need more time to milk, we'll heat them at medium 15 seconds at a time, until they are melted when stirred.

    So now we're ready to gradually fold our thawed whipped topping into the chocolate. I'm going to take just a little bit at a time, I'll work this in and sometimes when you are at this step, it will look like it's starting to seize up on you or get a little bit thick. Don't worry about that because as you continue adding more whipped topping, it does become looser and you get the texture that you need.

    All right, this is all mixed together, so now we're ready to put it into our pie crust. I have an already preformed pie crust that you can buy in the grocery store. This is a Graham crust and what I'm going to do is put half of this filling into the pie crust and now you are going to take the chopped peanut butter cups, sprinkle those over a surface and then take the remainder of your filling, put it on top of this.

    Once you have the second layer on the top, we are going to put this in the refrigerator for few hours until it firms up. We've just taken our pie from the refrigerator. It's been in the refrigerator, for about three hours, so it's nice and firm. Now right before serving, we are going to add a little bit more of the thawed whipped topping to the top of the pie. And then, I'm going to decorate each slice with some Reese's miniature peanut butter cups and some Hershey's milk chocolate candy coated eggs.

    So that's how you make an easy Easter pie. Enjoy!
