Peanut Butter Pie Recipe: Some Tips

This chocolate peanut butter pie is simple to prepare and you have the choice of serving it frozen or chilled. I like to drizzle some chocolate sauce on the serving plates before adding a slice of pie. There is no such thing as too much chocolate!

It’s special enough to enjoy after a holiday meal. Or maybe you have a peanut butter loving friend or loved one who’d like this on their birthday. It keeps for a few months frozen so you might even want to make a couple of these – one for now and one to serve when you have unexpected visitors. Because it’s so good frozen though, you’ll have to resist the temptation to eat it knowing it’s in there!

Make sure the crust ingredients are well combined and then firmly press them over the bottom and partway up the sides of a pie dish. You can use a spring-form pie dish for the chocolate graham crust, so it comes out easier after baking.

The filling should be fluffy and creamy so keep whisking it until it is that texture. Once you add in the icing sugar, you need to beat the mixture until you see stiff peaks. Don’t stop at the soft peak stage – it won’t be as fluffy and light!
