- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted peanuts, divided
- 1 prepared 9–inch (6 ounces) chocolate crumb crust
- 2 tablespoons caramel topping, divided
- 1 2/3 cups (11–ounce package) Nestlé Toll House Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels

- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups frozen nondairy whipped topping, thawed
- SPRINKLE 1/4 cup peanuts onto bottom of pie crust. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon caramel topping.

- BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in chocolate mixture. Add whipped topping and stir vigorously until smooth. Spoon into prepared pie crust and swirl top. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts and drizzle with remaining caramel topping. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour.
