Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Struggling what to write about for this pie. I have no words. It’s just that amazing.

You can’t help but close your eyes as you take a bite because a pie this good has to be savored. A pie good enough to often replace birthday cake in our house.

My love for this peanut butter pie first started when I had it for the first time at Blue Willow Inn. Just the other week my family returned to this restaurant, and the peanut butter pie made the whole trip worth it. Yes. I did eat three pieces. No. I don’t regret one bite.

Their pie uses a graham cracker crust, less peanut butter and is piled high with cool whip(which I usually just scrape off..) I gave this pie a chocolate twist, using a chocolate crust and a chocolate drizzle and upped the peanut butter.

When I was younger, I thought because this pie tasted so good, it must be super hard to make. WRONG. This rich pie has only 6 ingredients, easy steps and no baking, so it will be on its way to your tummy in no time.
