Save some room for the meal''s grand finale, a real super-star of a dessert, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie. From Sara Walker of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, this pie is simply divine. Says Sara, “This is always a family reunion favorite. Kids love it!” And there's certainly lots to love; it's creamy and really full of peanut and chocolate flavors. Also, it only has 5 ingredients, and with just 15 minutes of chilling time necessary, this pie's ready before you know it!
"I keep one of these cool and creamy chocolate desserts in my freezer at all times," relates Barbara Soyars from Danville, Virginia. "I've taken it to church suppers and family get-togethers, and it's always a hit."
This creamy, quick chocolate pie not only melts in your mouth, it also melts any and all resistance to dessert! What an easy way to say "I love you" on Valentine's Day. —Mary E. Relyea, Canastota, New York
My grandmother served chocolate meringue pie after Sunday dinner each week, usually with an apology it was "too runny" or something else was wrong with it. Of course, it was never less than perfect!
I've been married for 22 years, and my husband and I have two daughters (18 and 15). When I was expecting for the second time, I had a craving for chocolate and baked this pie often.
One morning, as Cecil was leaving the house, there was half a pie on the counter...which I quickly finished! I was so embarrassed I made another one and left just half—I wanted Cecil to think I'd had the willpower not to touch even a piece of pie. It was years before I could tell him what I'd done. How we've laughed about it since!
I always make this dessert over the holidays using leftover eggnog. Now that it boasts all the classic flavor but half the fat and a third fewer calories, we can savor this holiday tradition down to the last rich crumb. —Beth McCreedy, Lapeer, Michigan
