Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter and Chocolate is the ultimate merger of flavors. It’s like the combination sunshine and a hammock, finding new hella cute shoes and then realizing that they are extremely comfortable. It’s basically better than sliced bread—or whatever the kids are saying these days. So when my friend told me about this recipe, I knew what must be done. For me, for the world, for you. This must be made and shared and devoured. This pie is easy to make, and it’s chocolatey and creamy and rich—what more can you ask for? Now go forth and discover this goodness yourselves…

14 oz of chocolate wafers (or Oreos, or Oreo thins)
1 cup (16 tablespoons) butter, divided
1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, divided
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Finely crush the chocolate wafers. Stir crumbs together with 8 tablespoons melted butter until well combined. Press into the bottom and sides of a pie pan. Freeze crust for 10 minutes until set.

Add the remaining 8 tablespoons of softened butter, 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter, and 1 cup powdered sugar to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the crust into a smooth layer. Place back in freezer.

Place chocolate chips and remaining 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in a large glass or heat-proof bowl. In a saucepan, bring heavy whipping cream to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and peanut butter and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate layer over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hours until ready to serve. Let sit for about 15 minutes on the counter before serving.
