Nothing says “PARTY!” like this chocolate peanut butter pie! It’s one of my favorite easy dessert recipes.
I whipped one up tonight for my son’s 4th birthday party that we’re having tomorrow. We’ll definitely have the traditional cake and ice cream, but if I know my guests correctly, they will be expecting this divine pie, laced with lots of chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is THE recipe that I am asked to make for every single family gathering. Every single one!
I’ve made these pies so many times that I don’t even need to look at the recipe any more. And, since I’m usually making at least two of them at once, I usually have a little assembly line going.
It’s one of those easy dessert recipes that is just so easy to make.
TIP: Use a store-bought graham cracker crust to speed up the assembly of the pie. You might even want to try different flavors, such as a chocolate cookie crust!
