There is something outrageously decadent when you pair two delicious ingredients like peanut butter and chocolate together for a dessert. We understand making pie crust at home can be extra work and that’s why this recipe calls for a pre-made pie crust from a local grocery store. If you wish to skip using the pre-made pie crust and make your own, you may want to try adding new flavors like chocolate or vanilla wafers, Graham cracker crumbs, toffee crust, ladyfingers etc. and mix it with melted butter and pack it in a cheesecake pan before you can pour the filling.
For a healthier version of this recipe, you may use organic dark chocolate chips with at least 70 percent or more cacao in it. The more the cacao content in chocolate the less sugar and processing it goes through making it the healthiest of all kinds of chocolate that are available in the market. Dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants and improves cardiovascular health as well. As far as peanut butter is concerned, it is cholesterol free because of the good fats in it. The nutrition in peanut butter is undeniably good because it has essential nutrients like vitamin B6, which helps in maintaining blood sugar levels within the normal range. With all the peanut butter dessert recipes available, it is perhaps a great idea to sneak in all that peanut butter goodness into your family's well-being.
Though this pie tastes great the way it is, there is nothing wrong with adding some grated chocolate on top for garnish. You can never have too much chocolate especially in a pie like this. If you like blanched almonds or toasted nuts like macadamia or pecans for a good crunch you can lightly sprinkle some on top. Decorate the top with cut up fruits like Raspberries or Kiwi bits as they go well with this peanut butter dessert recipe. If you like Nutella, you could replace the chocolate layer by whipping Nutella and condensed milk together and pour it on top. Don’t forget the fact that you can increase the flavor for the better if you use a real vanilla extract instead of just using artificial vanilla flavor. For best results, it is better to use hundred percent pure vanilla extract with no corn syrup or additives. There are many good brands like Neilson Massey or Madagascar. You can also add vanilla bean paste if you like.
