This Decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie was the star of the show on a recent THV11 This Morning segment. I bet you can guess why.

There are never enough reasons NOT to make this pie. Oh my goodness, y’all. It’s amazingly delicious. 

And decadent.

But who cares?

Don’t you deserve a little decadence in your life?

This is a variation on my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie (see the link in the recipe), but it has the addition of a creamy and rich dark chocolate ganache. It’s topped off with Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups and a good sprinkling of honey roasted peanuts. I even added in some of the White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which are delicious if you can find them.

Every single time. Promise.
