    Ingredients for Easy 15 Minute Peanut Butter And Chocolate Cream Pie

    • 1/2 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly substitute, sun butter is delicious
    • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
    • 8 ounces cream cheese softened to room temperature
    • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping only slightly thawed
    • graham cracker crust 9-inch

    for the chocolate ganache and nut layer

    • 1 cup nuts chopped, lightly salted, any nut; I am using pecans
    • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate morsels
    • 3 tablespoons whole milk may substitute heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


    to make the peanut butter layer of the pie

    • If preparing a homemade graham cracker crust, use a 9-inch pie pan. Have baked, cooled and ready. I am using a premade 9-inch pie crust store bought and have at the ready.
    • In a large mixing bow, combine the peanut butter, and the confectioners sugar using an electric hand mixer. Cream until well incorporated.
    • To the peanut butter mixture, beat in the softened cream cheese followed by the whipped topping.
    • Spoon the peanut butter mixture into the pie crust. Use a rubber spatula to smooth out the top. Top with chopped nuts if using, distributing evenly. Place into the refrigerator while preparing and cooling the ganache.

    prepare the chocolate ganache

    • In a nonstick sauce pan over medium low heat, combine the chocolate morsels with the milk, butter, and granulated sugar stirring until all the chocolate is melted and ganache is smooth and shiny. Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the sauce pan but off the heat.
    • Use a rubber spatula to scrape all of the ganache onto the pie, filling in all of the nooks between the nuts. If it looks as though you have too much ganache, set overage aside to serve with chilled pie later.
    • Refrigerate to cool completely. I go minimum 2 hours.
    • To serve, cut the pie into 8 equal slices and plate. Garnish with whipped cream, cookie pieces, peanut butter candies, small pieces of peanut brittle, additional whole or chopped nuts, caramel sauce, or chocolate sauce, etc. This step is limited only by your imagination, so get creative!
