Peanut butter chocolate cream pie has the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. This homemade pie recipe creates a custard pie that tastes like a creamy, cold Reese’s peanut butter cup. Peanut butter lovers go crazy for this pie!
My oldest son turned 12 on Memorial Day this year. Personally, I think that is a great day for a birthday! The sun was shining, it was FINALLY not raining, and the mosquitoes weren’t too bad. It was a day destined to be perfect for a birthday cook-out.
We had asked #1 son what he wanted to have for his birthday dinner and coincidentally, it was something that was easy to make for a crowd, which I appreciated. The main course would be pulled pork sandwiches. His birthday dessert was another matter. I asked him for days and he couldn’t make up his mind. “Just something chocolate” he said. How vague is that?! I told him I could make a double chocolate cake, cheesecake with chocolate ganache (our favorite), homemade chocolate ice cream…None of my ideas sounded right to him. Remember, this is my fickle, picky and indecisive eater. 😉
Finally he decided that he wanted to have a peanut butter custard pie. I can hear you thinking…THAT”S NOT CHOCOLATE!!! That’s what I told him. He described to me a pie he had once at a local bakery that apparently, he has thought about ever since he first tasted it. That pie is peanut butter on the bottom and dark chocolate on the top.
I knew I had a similar recipe, for chocolate banana cream pie, so I could just make a few changes to that recipe to create this peanut butter chocolate cream pie.
Luckily, the peanut butter chocolate cream pie was exactly what the birthday boy wanted.I made this easy cream pie recipe using store bought, ready to bake pie crust.
If you want a completely from scratch peanut butter chocolate cream pie, you can make your own pie crust.
You can use your own recipe, or use this fool proof pie crust recipe.
Let me assure you, this pie didn’t last long after we blew out the candles and took a picture. It tastes like a cold , creamy Reese’s peanut butter cup. Please don’t tell me you DON’T like those. 😉
