Shortly after I started the series someone on my Facebook page asked if I would share a Chocolate Peanut Butter pie recipe. I didn’t have one, but I went on the search. I found a few, but none of them really was what I wanted. The one on Mr. Food came close so I took pointers from it and came up with something on my own. It was a success! Everyone declared it delicious.
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup whole milk
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1 baked pie crust
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
1. In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
2. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk eggs and milk together. Add to the sugar mixture and stir together well.
3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly to avoid scorching, until the mixture starts to boil. By now the mixture should be thick. Boil for one minute. Add the vanilla and stir well.
4. Put half of the butter in a bowl with the peanut butter chips, and put half of the butter with the chocolate chips. Pour half the cooked mixture in with the peanut butter chips and pour the chocolate chips into the pot with the remaining cooked mixture. Stir both well to melt the chips and evenly distribute. Go back and forth between the two, like tennis, but with pie.
5. Pour the chocolate mixture in the bottom of the baked pie crust. Gently pour and spread the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate. Cool completely before slicing.
6. Garnish the pie with whipped topping and/or chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Alternatively, you could make a meringue with the leftover egg whites and top the pie with that.
Cady loved this pie. She said it tasted exactly like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup. She also said it was even better with whipped topping.
