    I doubled the amount of peanut butter and mixed in some mini chocolate chips. Made this for my daughter's birthday and everyone enjoyed it.

    If you increase PB to 1 cup and eliminate topping, you have a pie I've made many times over the years. Use prepared graham cracker crust, and it's even easier. Just sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over top.
