Peanut Butter Crème Icebox Pie - Wow! This is rich!
Peanut butter is as American as mom and Apple Pie. Mix it with some cream cheese, some whipped cream, a little chocolate and lots of love - Wow.. Rich and absolutely delicious!
I made this for Rosh Hashana at my sister Meryl's house. I was a little nervous because I never made this before, but what could be bad, right?
It was delicious! Everyone loved it! But even the kids said that they could only eat a little bit of it. Very rich. Not at all the kind of pie you can sit down with in front of the television with a fork and a glass of milk (skim of course) and eat half (or all) the pie. A sliver of Peanut Butter Crème Icebox Pie is perfect. It will make you very, very happy. Maybe I should learn to make it a little less rich, so you could sit in from of the television with a fork and a glass of milk and enjoy it - but it tastes so darn good the way it is!
The only person who didn't like the pie was my son Marc. He only likes peanut butter when it is accompanied by jelly on bread.
I chose to use milk chocolate with this recipe because I really like milk chocolate. No other reason. If you prefer dark chocolate, that should be fine too. I also chose to use chocolate graham crakers to make the crust. I just love chocolate and peanut butter.
Like the Nutella Crème Icebox Pie in the April archive on this blog, it isn't a dessert I recommend making often. It's rich, it's sweet and it's delicious, but it should only be for something very special if you don't want to buy new (larger) jeans
