Equipment

  • Stand mixer
  •  Bowls
  • Spatulas
  • Whisks
  • Pie plate

Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST

  • 2 cups chocolate baking crumbs + a couple tbsp for topping if you can’t find crumbs, you can also use a food processor and chop up chocolate biscuit cookies. You could also use graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 c melted butter- you might need a little extra too if it's still too crumbly

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 1 brick/8 ounces/227 grams cream cheese at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar icing sugar is the same thing
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

MAKE THE WHIPPED CREAM

  • 1 cup whipping cream sometimes called heavy cream (33, 35 36% MF)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Granulated or powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp whipping cream to thin out the filling **optional, use if needed

LET’S TOP THIS PIE- THESE ARE ALL OPTIONAL!

  • 2 tbsp melted peanut butter to drizzle
  • 2 tbsp melted chocolate chips to drizzle
  • Mini Reese’s cups
  • Peanut butter chips
  • 2 tsp chocolate cookie crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.

FOR THE CRUST

  • IF YOU DON’T HAVE CRUMBS: Take your chocolate cookies and using a food processor, break down the chocolate wafers to make a crumb. If you don’t have a food processor you can put them in a large plastic storage bag and ROLL with a rolling pin, until they become crumbs
  • In a large bowl, add the melted butter and mix with crumbs and sugar to combine. You want this to be a little damp. If it still feels super dusty and crumbly, you can add a couple extra tablespoons of melted butter.
  • Press the buttered crumbs into the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate
  • Bake at 325 about 12 minutes, you want to smell chocolate, then take out and let cool. Right now we are just letting this “Set”

LET’S MAKE THE FILLING: 2 Bowls and an electric mixer or stand mixer

  • MAKE THE FILLING- In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and the peanut butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. If you want to thin it out a little, add up to 2-3 tbsp of whipping cream.
    Now let's spread it over the pie crust.
  • NOW LET'S MAKE THE WHIPPED CREAM- Let’s make the whipped cream – In a large bowl with an electric mixer whip the cream with vanilla and 2 tbsp powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  • Now let's top our PB pie with the whipped cream!
  • LET'S DECORATE
    Drizzle with melted peanut butter and melted chocolate, Top with peanut butter chips and cups and freeze a couple hours.
  • SERVE COLD, from the fridge or even better from the freezer!
