Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie


I really love cooking for my hubby. Until he get's in my way in the kitchen.

Then we have issues...

The other day he used the last of teriyaki sauce without letting me know.

And  I'm not a mind reader...

I was cooking and developing a recipe with a peanut sauce and started looking for the teriyaki sauce. To no avail....Then I got the doe eyed look "Sorry!  I didn't know...." That dish turned into chicken pesto with spaghetti...Don't ask how I did it... We'll just call it an audible. I took the peanut butter and made a pie. Hubby was estatic..

Not that he deserved it...



Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar plus 1/4 cup for whipping cream
1 8 oz package of cream cheese
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1 graham cracker crust

Combine the peanut butter, sugar, and cream cheese until smooth and combined. Transfer to a bowl and then with a clean beater - whip up heavy cream and the rest of the sugar.

Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture and add into the pie shell
Melt the choc chips in the microwave for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes and either drizzle on top or cover the entire top.

The choice is yours.

  2. I guess it depends how many slices.. But I didn't say it was an everyday.. Feel free to substitute fat free cream cheese and cool whip.
