I am addicted to cooking and baking. I love to find and make delicious recipes. Sometimes I create my own and I post them here. Other times I find a recipe and adapt it. I have posted those recipes here as well. Enjoy.

Oh, My! Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 ¼ cups heavy whipping cream
1 jar (13 oz.) Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread (I used Reese’s)
3 Tablespoons PB2 (Chocolate Peanut Butter Powder), optional
1 Chocolate graham cracker crust or shortbread crust (9 inches)
A small handful unsalted peanuts
A small handful Reese’s Pieces
A small handful peanut butter chips
2 crushed small Nutter Butter Cookies
1 cup milk chocolate chips
¼ cup heavy whipping cream

In large bowl, beat cream cheese & whipping cream until thickened.  Add Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread and peanut butter powder (optional); beat just until completely combined.  Spoon into crust.  Sprinkle peanuts, Reese’s Pieces, peanut butter chips, and crushed Nutter Butter Pieces over the filling, covering it with the toppings.    Place 1 cup chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl.  In a small saucepan, cook ¼ cup heavy whipping cream, stirring constantly, until it comes to a rapid boil.  Remove from heat and immediately pour over the chocolate chips.  Let sit for 3 minutes, then stir until smooth.  Spoon chocolate ganache into a ziplock bag, cut a small slit in a corner of the bag and pipe over the toppings in the design of your choice.  Cover and Freeze  overnight.
