Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Ganache

Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Ganache – For all those peanut butter lovers out there!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ready-made graham cracker crust

 

For the filling:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed

 

For the top:

  • 1 cup milk chocolate (or semi-sweet) chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream

 

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the filling. Cream together peanut butter and cream cheese until smooth and well blended. Add in powdered sugar and mix on low.
  2. Add in Cool Whip and beat on medium until fluffy, scraping downsides of the bowl as needed. Set filling aside.
  3. Make your ganache. Using 2 cups, microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips and cream together on high for about 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir until chips are completely melted and chocolate is smooth. If necessary, microwave for another 10 seconds. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
  4. Using the back of a spoon, spread all but 3-4 tablespoons of the ganache over the inside of the ready-made crust, making sure to go up the sides. Let the crust sit for about 5 minutes for the ganache to set up. Add peanut butter filling and spread evenly to fill the crust. Drizzle remaining ganache over the top of the pie.
  5. Refrigerate pie for at least 2 hours before serving.

 

Notes:
  • This pie can also be frozen. Let pie thaw for at least 2 hours before serving.
