Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pie - chocoalte and peanut butter heaven!

This post is being updated as of 6/20/14:

Peanut Butter Cream Pie has long been a favorite of my husband.  If we go out to a restaurant that has this kind of pie, it is the one he orders.  It is about the only time in his life that having chocolate is acceptable.  See, even the peanut butter and chocolate combo can turn anyone!  We have been making this pie at home for years!  I think it was one of the first recipes I made when we first got married.  I shared it the first time on the blog back in 2011, when I made it for Father’s Day.  I am really sad to say, I think that was the last time I made it :(  When trying to come up with a dessert to go with our Father’s Day meal this year, I thought of this pie.  Apparently I should make it a tradition!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Pie {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

This pie starts with a graham cracker crust.  There is just something about a homemade graham cracker crust that gets me, so I always make my own.  The hardest part is crushing the graham crackers!  But if you wanted to go truly no bake, and use store bought, then go for it! Then there is a layer of hot fudge, and that is stopped with a creamy peanut butter, almost mousse like layer, that is also studded with peanut butter cups!  Finally fresh whipped cream is spread on top with a few more peanut butter cups…because, why not!  It is a rich and creamy dessert that is great for the summer.  Bring it to your next get together, and I promise you will not have leftovers, and people will be begging you for the recipe!

    For a strawberry crumb bar, I bet this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker would work well subbing strawberries for raspberries – http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2011/05/13/raspberry-streusel-crumb-bars-recipe/. I haven't made it yet, but everything I make from her site is delicious :)
