“My family loves this recipe. I found it in a Kraft food & family book. I will give the original recipe here. I have made a few changes for our family such as I like Reeses peanut butter and I use Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips if I don't have the bakers chocolate. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do. Shortcut: You can substitute a prepared Nilla Pie Crust for the Nilla wafers and butter. Cooking time is actually refrigeration time.”
