  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Crust:
    1. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and granulated sugar.
    2. Add the melted butter and mix until the crumbs are evenly coated and resemble wet sand.
    3. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Make sure the crust is firmly packed.
    4. Place the crust in the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
  2. Make the Peanut Butter Filling:
    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth and well combined.
    2. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and beat until fully incorporated.
    3. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
    4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture until well combined and smooth.
    5. If using, fold in the mini chocolate chips for added texture and flavor.
  3. Assemble the Pie:
    1. Remove the crust from the freezer and spoon the peanut butter filling into the crust, spreading it out evenly.
    2. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  4. Freeze the Pie:
    1. Cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or until fully set.
  5. Serve:
    1. Before serving, let the pie sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to make it easier to slice.
    2. Drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired.
    3. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
