If you know me at all, you know that two of my favorite things are Skippy Peanut Butter and chocolate. Throw in Honey Maid Graham Crackers, and you have a match made in heaven. I’m guessing this must be where my kids have both gotten their insane love of peanut butter milkshakes from. I’m taking a break from holiday baking with this no bake dessert that is so, so good–and just perfect for the holidays. Save $0.50 when you buy one (1) Honey Maid Grahams (12.2 oz. or larger).
And this pie? It’s one of those recipes that’s been floating around in my head for a while. And it’s so easy to make I’m wondering why I waited so long to try it out.
Holiday traditions are what memories are made of. In our family, we have a tradition of making faux gingerbread houses out of graham crackers and decorating them with icing and candy. This year, I thought we’d try something new and use peanut butter instead. And I just have to say–adding peanut butter to this cute creation makes me want to dive in and eat it right up!
Wouldn’t this be a fun way to play with food for kids during snack time? What a great activity!
The thing about playing with food–and gingerbread houses in particular–is that while they can look incredibly spectacular, they really don’t have to be a masterpiece. The charm comes from the fun and memories that come from making the house. Shared laughter, smiles and moments with family and friends are worth so much more than an immaculate gingerbread house of perfection. Unless that’s what makes you happy, and then by all means… perfect away.
Making a peanut butter gingerbread house is SO simple. All you need to do is make sure to apply peanut butter to the areas you want to stick together. Then decorate with candy and gobble that house right up!
Having brands I can rely on is something I count on. I like knowing when I come home with bags full of groceries that I’m getting ingredients I can trust and food that I know is going to taste good. That is ever so important–especially when you’ve got a hungry family waiting for you to show off something special.
I loaded up on my trip to Walmart. There’s something about the holidays that just puts me in the mood to cook. Or mix up something wonderful and not cook at all. Which is exactly what I did for my Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie masterpiece.
And you know what? The recipe is as easy as pie. Yep. That easy.
I used my food processor to mix up 7 cups of vanilla ice cream with 1 cup of Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter. You could also soften the ice cream and mix it up by hand.
To make the crust, use two envelopes of graham crackers, or 2/3 of the box. Crush the graham crackers and mix in pie plate with 1/2 cup of butter, melted. Press down into deep dish pie plate.
Next, pour the peanut butter ice cream into the pie plate smooth out. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips.
