Reviews for Chocolate Peanut Pie
"My husband loves any dessert made with peanut butter. This is one of his favorite peanut butter pies."
"Creamy goodness. Very sweet and rich like a typical peanut butter pie."
"So simple and yummy, I highly recommend. I took the shortcut of using a purchased cookie crust but I think it might be even better with the homemade cookie crust. I also added about 1/3 cup of a chopped up milk chocolate bar to the filling for a little extra chocolate kick, yum. If you have the time, make the day before, the pie sets up very nicely overnight in the refrigerator."
"I recall making this pie and instead of whipping cream, I'd used whipped topping (1 cup)! I'd taken this pie to at least a couple of luncheons at our chapel and this pie was very much enjoyed! It IS best to keep this pie refrigerated so it stays firm! I recall that when I'd prepared this pie, I was asked for the recipe! I used the recipe when I'd gotten my 2nd edition of Crate 'o Recipes from Taste of Home. This is a really great recipe and it's so easy and quick! NOTE: I have all the Crate o' Recipes which had been featured in the original Country Store catalog and this was among those recipes-very handy to just go to my references on my kitchen counter, select what I wish to prepare and start baking or cooking!delowenstein"
"I have been making this pie since the original recipe was printed in TOH. I think about 1995 or 1996! My husband and son want this for their birthday "cake" every year! I am not a huge fan of peanut butter, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this pie! I use a premade Oreo crust, but keep everything else the same. Such a rich and yummy dessert."
