Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

A few months ago I took a coconut cream pie to work to share with co-workers.  Unfortunately, the prosecutor I work with is allergic to coconut so he didn't  have any of the pie.  He's a big peanut butter cup fan so I've been thinking about a pie that he could get excited about.  I got an idea for a pie that would be along the lines of a peanut butter cup and tried it out today. Two of my grown sons came over to test it, along with my husband and son and daughter who live at home.  The vote was unanimous that this pie is a keeper!  This week I'll make it again to take to work.  Hopefully everybody there will like it also.

Here's the recipe - it's an original!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

1 baked deep dish pie shell

2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
Sweetened whipped cream

  • Beat together the powdered sugar and peanut butter.  Spread over the bottom of the pie shell, then place in refrigerator.
  • Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy.  Mix in the chocolate and vanilla.
  • Add one egg, then beat on high for 4 minutes.  Add second egg, then beat on high for 4 minutes.  Add the third egg, and beat for another 4 minutes.
  • Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter filling in the pie shell.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Top with sweetened whipped cream.

Mmmm, I love peanut butter pie ever since I had it so many years ago. But, chocolate makes everything better. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog right now and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your pie up.

I'm loving the pictures! He looks just like my twin boys when they're ravaging my pie, lol! They love chocolate and peanut butter pie, too! And to make it even more fun, I also put caramelized pecan nuts on top! No wonder, my boys think I'm the best mom, ;)
