Prepare the Crust:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, granulated

sugar, and melted butter until well combined.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until the crust is golden and set. Allow it to cool completely before adding the

filling.

Make the Filling:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth.

Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into

the peanut butter mixture until fully incorporated.

Spread the peanut butter filling evenly over the cooled crust.

Prepare the Chocolate Ganache:

Place the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over

medium heat until it begins to simmer.

Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for a minute. Stir until the chocolate is

completely melted and the mixture is smooth.

Pour the ganache over the peanut butter filling, spreading it into an even layer. Refrigerate the pie for

at least 2 hours, or until the ganache is set.

Add the Topping:

Once the ganache is set, arrange the mini peanut butter cups, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter

chips on top of the pie.

Serve and Enjoy:

Slice the pie and serve chilled. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Tips for Perfect Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie:

 

Crust Alternatives:

For a twist, try using an Oreo cookie crust or a shortbread crust instead of the graham cracker crust.

Peanut Butter Options:

Feel free to use chunky peanut butter if you prefer a bit of crunch in your filling.

Toppings Variation:

Add a drizzle of caramel sauce or chocolate syrup over the top for an extra layer of flavor.

Nutritional Benefits:

 

Protein:

Peanut butter is a good source of protein, which is essential for muscle repair and overall health.

Healthy Fats:
