My number one son celebrated his birthday in August, and, as I always do, I had him and his family over for gifts and dessert. I seized this opportunity to try a new recipe, opting for one of the richest, most decadent desserts that I could find. This is certainly it! Imagine sinking your teeth into a pie-sized-wedge of a peanut butter cup and you get the picture. This dessert is rich! There is a plus in that. Because it is so rich, you will need to cut small slices, so this pie goes a long way, 10-12 servings easily. It would be a wonderful dessert to serve for your Halloween dinners, particularly if you add a hint of orange drizzle to the top, in a similar fashion to what I did here.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
1 (14.3 oz) package Oreos
1 stick butter, melted
1 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Finely crush the Oreos using your favorite method, i.e. a food processor, blender, or smashed in a Ziploc bag. I tend to use the food processor because the entire crust can be easily made in doing so. Stir crumbs together with the melted butter until well combined. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie pan. Freeze crust for 10 minutes until set.
