Wait, wait, wait – hold up!
Did I really suggest Thanksgiving dessert ideas yesterday and NOT include anything with chocolate?????
Quick! Someone check my temperature!
But fear not, dear friends. There’s still PLENTY of time to make this luscious Peanut Butter Cream Pie and your loved ones won’t even know it was a last minute addition.
Because it’s a known fact that Peanut Butter and Chocolate are a match made in heaven.
I had actually made this beauty a few weeks ago when one of my besties and I had gone over to a friend’s for dinner. Because I can never go to someone’s house empty-handed, I offered to bring a dessert and turned to this fabulous pie courtesy of Joy the Baker.
Instead of the graham crackers that the recipe calls for, I opted for Oreo cookies because mo’ chocolate is always mo’ better! As for the filling, you can’t beat the light, fluffy, peanut-buttery center that is then layered with whipped cream. And to go that extra bit over, top it with whatever your heart desires! I kind of went to infinity and beyond by topping the pie with a drizzle off melted chocolate, crushed salted peanuts, itty-bitty mini chocolate peanut butter cups AND chopped up chocolate covered pretzels.
Yea….I have no self control.
So once again, HAPPY THANKSGIVING FRIENDS!!! And now, you have no excuse to leave out the chocolate 🙂
