This is a great make-ahead recipe. I like to also sprinkle some chopped peanuts over the top of the pie, and I also sometimes drizzle chocolate syrup over the top of each slice. I have made this recipe using a purchased graham cracker crust (in place of the peanut crust in the recipe) with good results and I think that a chocolate crumb crust would be good too.
