Peanut Butter Pie


8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

3/4 cup powdered sugar 

1 cup creamy peanut butter
 or almond butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Graham cracker pie crust or Chocolate graham cracker pie crust

Melted peanut butter (optional)

Melted chocolate

Mini Reese’s cups
Peanut butter chips

Mix all filling ingredients together and put in pie crust. Freeze for 3 hours. 

Melt chocolate (and peanut butter if desired) and put into decorating pens or canisters and use to make lines back and forth. Sprinkle edges with chocolate chips (and Reese's cups and peanut butter if desired). Now clearly that's not what you see above. I had a minor accident with my decorating apparatus as it exploded on the center of the pie while still very hot. So, I had to make the best of it and spread it like cupcake icing. While I wanted to cry because I would have no pretty pie...the extra chocolate surely was tasty :)  

Here's the original recipe if you want to see what to aim for :)
