Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

All during the month of October, we are celebrating Chocotoberfest. I am celebrating this with a lovely chocolate peanut butter pie.
You can recreate this luscious pie at home.

Make this almost no bake chocolate peanut butter pie.   It's so easy, and so delicious.

Sometimes in recreating a recipe, I don’t succeed in making the recipe just like a particular recipe, but instead, what comes out is a wonderful pie. I have been in love with this peanut butter pie at So Chocolate, it is a local chocolate shop in Kingwood, Tx. They make a lovely light creamy peanut butter pie, it is the only dessert I have bought here. I love their pie.

I want to you love their pie too, so after I few attempts I came up with this peanut butter pie, it is a dense, rich pie that is very easy to make. My pie is made with a homemade graham cracker crust. I use a tart pan, using a tart pan makes it easy to cut the pie later. I also use cream cheese, peanut butter (I like to use a natural peanut butter, I think the flavor is richer), dark brown sugar, heavy cream, butter and 4 ounces of good quality chocolate,

I always make my graham crackers by running them through my blender. You can purchase them already made at the grocery store, but you can also make them up in a jiffy in a matter of minutes. The filling of the pie can quickly be made, and when the pie sets you will make a chocolate ganache to pour over the pie. I love making a chocolate ganache, it sounds fancy, but you are simply heating heavy cream until it boils, turning off the heat, and adding the chocolate. This makes a beautiful topping that can be used on all sorts of desserts.

I hope you enjoy my peanut butter pie. It is a super easy dessert to make. You don’t need to be an experienced baker to put together this delicious pie.
