    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Crust

    • 1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
    • 1/3 cup butter or 1/3 cup margarine, melted

    Filling

    Topping

    Garnish

    • 6 miniature peanut butter cups, halved

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Make crust first.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine crumbs and melted butter and then pat into a 9" pie plate.
    4. 4
      Bake until firm and solid; 8 minutes.
    5. 5
      Let cool.
    6. 6
      Now make filling.
    7. 7
      In medium-sized bowl, whip cream.
    8. 8
      Place in fridge until you need it.
    9. 9
      Now, in a large bowl, beat softened cream cheese until fluffy.
    10. 10
      Next, beat in peanut butter, then butter and vanilla.
    11. 11
      Beat in icing sugar until nice and fluffy.
    12. 12
      Retrieve whipping cream from fridge.
    13. 13
      Fold about one-quarter of the cream into mixture to lighten it up, then fold in remainder of cream.
    14. 14
      Use a light hand-- but you don't want any streaks of cream to show either.
    15. 15
      Fill baked crust with peanut butter mixture.
    16. 16
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until it firms up, about 3 hours.
    17. 17
      To make chocolate ganache topping, finely chop chocolate bar (you can substitute 6 squares of semisweet bakers chocolate) and place in a small bowl.
    18. 18
      In a small pot, heat cream just until bubbles form.
    19. 19
      Pour over chocolate and stir until chocolate melts.
    20. 20
      Let cool, then spread over pie.
    21. 21
      Take the 12 miniature-peanut-butter-cup halves and arrange them evenly around the edge of the pie.
    22. 22
      I tilt them so the inside shows.
    23. 23
      Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving; I always make this a day ahead.

      Yummie!!! I've made this pie three times in the last two weeks and they keep disappearing. So easy to make my three year old helps me. Thank you so much for a delicious recipe.

      I made a vegan version of this with Tofutti cream cheese and non-dairy whipping cream, and every single piece was eaten! Lennie, you are making me fat!

      My favourite flavour combination & this did not disappoint! I have to admit I was a little worried about the filling - once the icing sugar was added, the mixture got really crumbly & I wondered what I had done wrong. But, I just stayed with it & it came together nicely. Very rich so 1/12 of the pie is probably all you need/want.
