Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 cups crushed pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine crushed pretzels and 1/3 cup sugar with melted butter. Using the bottom of a glass, press onto bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Bake until set, 12-15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 5 minutes. Beat peanut butter, softened butter, cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup cream. Microwave gelatin on high until melted, about 10 seconds; stir into peanut butter mixture. Transfer to crust.
