What Crust Is Used In This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie?
I used a pre-made flour based pie crust. Since you bake this pie in the oven you will find it is the best option.
If you prefer to use a homemade pie crust go ahead and use your favorite recipe. (You can find my pie crust recipe here!) Or opt to buy pre-made dough, roll it out and press into your pie pan.
I find the refrigerated dough tastes very close to homemade pie crust. If you buy the freezer section pie crust, you will find it tends to be a bit drier in form of texture as it bakes up.
What Is The Best Chocolate To Use For Peanut Butter Pie?
Semi-sweet chocolate is one of my personal favorites, so I went with that. If you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate you can use that as well. If you go with milk chocolate you will find it's a little bit more sweet.
Do I Have To Add Peanuts To Peanut Butter Pie?
If you want a creamy texture feel free to skip adding peanuts into the pie. It will still have a rich peanutty flavor from the peanut butter.
The salted peanuts do add a lot of flavor to this chocolate peanut butter pie. I have made this pie with unsalted peanuts, and I definitely prefer it with salted.
How Do I Store Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie?
I store my leftover pie in the refrigerator. I find it will extend the shelf life. Just make sure to place the pie in an airtight container or wrap it tightly in aluminum foil.
You can store the pie for up to five days in the fridge. It is best to eat within the first couple days for maximum flavor.
Can I Double This Pie Recipe?
Absolutely! You can double the filling for this pie and bake it in two pie crusts.
Make sure to bake both on the middle rack of the oven, that way they don't overcook on the lower rack. Take turns baking them separately if they don't fit at the same time.
