Wow it’s been like, two months since my last update. It has been incredibly crazy though I think I have over-committed myself. I decided to take up part time study so I have no time for anything! Haha oh well, it is worth it.

So today I bring you a dessert that is so incredibly easy because it requires NO baking. Just putting things in the fridge to set. It’s for a dinner party tonight and even though it’s technically Autumn, a cold dessert would be nice tonight.

I deviated a little from “pie” because the chocolate biscuit base is actually supposed to come up the sides to make a “shell” but it still counts as a pie… right? It’s made in a pie dish! :)

Recipe time! It’s SO easy… you should try it… right now!

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie
Serves 10-12

200g chocolate biscuits (with a cream centre), crushed
50g butter, melted
200g cream cheese
2/3 cup icing sugar
100g smooth peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
250ml single cream, whipped
2 tbs single cream, extra
15g butter, extra
50g dark chocolate, chopped
Peanuts, chopped

Combine the crushed biscuits and butter and press into a 25cm pie dish. You can press the mixture around the sides but I was lazy… Place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm.

Beat together the cream cheese and sifted icing sugar until smooth. Beat in the peanut butter and vanilla.
Spoon in a third of the whipped cream, gently stirring to combine. Fold in the rest of the cream.

Pour into the pie dish and place in the fridge to set for about 2 hours.

Place the extra cream and butter in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until the butter has melted and the cream is softy bubbling. Take off the heat and stir the chocolate through until it has melted completely and there are no lumps.

Drizzle the chocolate over the pie in a lattice pattern and place in the fridge for 2 hours or until set. Sprinkle with peanuts just before serving and enjoy!

    I used Arnott’s Delta Cream biscuits but I suppose you could use any chocolate biscuit, next time I’ll try it with Oreos :D
