You don’t have to be a hardcore peanut butter cup fanatic like me to enjoy this extremely decadent pie. It does help but as my family gently reminded me a sincere love is not required.
(What? My peanut-butter-cup-loving-mind automatically assumes everyone feels the same way. Like it’s a fact of life you can’t avoid. Must love peanut butter cups.)
With somewhat low expectations stemming from the fact they don’t share the same passion as I, they were in for a delightful surprise. Although that may be putting it mildly because I caught them eating pie at all hours of the day and night including right before dinner.
I wanted to tell them “I told you so” but refrained.Silently I gloated with glee.
(Maybe everyone is born with the love but like a dominant gene it has a 50/50 chance?!) There is hope yet.
With a chocolate cookie crust, rich peanut butter filling and chocolate ganache topping covered with insane amounts of chopped peanut butter cups, this is not for the faint of heart. Avert your eyes and step away now. Unless you’re already sucked in and hopelessly devoted.
Encased in chocolate it’s like one giant peanut butter cup covered with yet more peanut butter cups. Fourteen Reese’s peanut butter cups, to be exact.
Totally dreamy. Aren’t you glad you stayed?
Although the pie appears cloyingly sweet from top to bottom, the rich and creamy filling is only lightly sweet helping to balance out the extremely sweet peanut butter cups covering the top.
I love cutting through the pie and seeing the mosaic of peanut butter cups encased in chocolate.
Unbridled happiness courses through every fiber of my being.
Peanut butter cup pie makes the world go around.
Just you make it and wait and see.
