Frozen Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
Frozen Peanut Butter Pie consists of a graham cracker pretzel crust, frozen peanut butter filling, and a chocolate, pretzel, peanut butter cup topping.
- 1 1/4 cup chocolate cookie or graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup pretzel crumbs
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
- 1 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream separated
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/3 cup pretzels chopped
- 1/2 cup peanut butter cups
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium mixing bowl combine the cookie or graham cracker crumbs, pretzel crumbs, butter, and brown sugar. Toss with a spoon until moist.
Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish (I recommend a pie dish with a tall rim).
Freeze for 10 minutes, then place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
Using a stand or handheld mixer, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, mix until combined.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold in half (1 cup) of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
Fold the remaining whipped cream in until smooth and creamy.
Pour into the cooled crust, then spread into an even layer.
Combine the chocolate and cream in a 2 cup glass measuring cup or a medium size microwave-safe bowl, heat at half power for one minute, stir then repeat.
Remove and whisk for 1 minute until smooth. Spread over the filling, then top with chunks of peanut butter cups and pretzels.
Freeze for at least 2 hours, remove 10 minutes before serving and cut with a sharp knife (rinse under warm water if needed to get a nice clean cut). Serve cold.
