I think we’re all pretty much in agreement that 9 out of 10 people love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. So, I’m sharing with you one of the easiest recipes in the world for a Peanut Butter Pie that I’ve been making for years.

For me, there is no better pairing than this creamy peanut buttery filling with the crunchy chocolate cookie crust. I do however, like to kick it up another notch or two by adding a generous drizzle of melted chocolate, freshly whipped cream, and of course some chopped nuts. Just make sure to chill this pie real good, about 4 hours. That is, if you can wait that long…I couldn’t.

Mama’s Tips:

When whipping heavy cream, make sure it’s always really cold. Don’t take it out of the fridge until you’re ready to use it. I usually whip the cream in a metal bowl that I place in the freezer before using.

The method I like best for melting chocolate is to place a glass bowl with the chopped chocolate over a pot of lightly simmering water. Chocolate will burn easily, so don’t let it get in close contact with the heat. Just stir it with a wooden spoon until all the lumps have dissipated and you have a smooth drizzling consistency. Also, be sure not to get any water into the chocolate as it will make the chocolate seize.
