A light, airy and creamy peanut butter chocolate pie with an Oreo cookie crust and mascarpone and whipped cream filling. No baking required – simply pop it into your fridge for 4 hours and then enjoy!
We celebrated my brother’s birthday last weekend and that meant only one thing- I had to come up with a peanut butter dessert! Saying that my brother adores peanut butter would be an understatement. I think he breathes that stuff. So I got busy in my kitchen experimenting with the yummiest of ingredients. To make a really good pie, you need really good ingredients. Which means using high quality chocolate for your ganache and even some homemade peanut butter, if you’d like.
This pie had my whole family swooning. No wonder, because of these delicious layers:
- peanut butter and mascarpone
- chocolate ganache
- and oreo crust
Are you drooling yet? I am, just typing this up for you!
Now lets talk decorations. To decorate this pie I tried a piping bag vs. a squeeze bottle. I found that both create nice lines on the pie, so use whichever you prefer. Then sprinkle some roasted peanuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips on the sides and you have a beautiful and delicious pie. A slight warning- this pie is really rich so cut it into thin slivers. (Not like the huge piece I cut out!)Print
