READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Courtly

From a Pillsbury Bake-Off. IMO, peanut butter and chocolate is one of the best flavor combos!

I made this for our dessert for this week; it is DELICIOUS!!!! Chocolate peanutty crust with a creamy filling (kinda cheesecake like!), and a nice crumbly peanut butter topping! If you are a peanut butter lover, you will LOVE this!!!! The only thing I did differently was I didn't put the chocolate shavings on top; I somehow overlooked the chocolate candy bars in the recipe and didn't get them while we were at the grocery store. I did however have some chocolate syrup that I drizzled over top which I feel served the same purpose. Next time I will buy the chocolate candy bar to make shavings over top. I will definately make this again!
