Because I have really slacked at posting fun stuff lately, I want to leave you with a yummy recipe. If you like peanut butter, you should try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.
I served it for Thanksgiving, and it was a hit with everyone. My 9 year old loved it so much that even though there were 5 other choices of pie, he only ate this one. Chocolate and peanut butter is always a winner in my book too, so I loved it as well. Unlike him, I did manage to try some other flavors of pie as well. 🙂
This pie is super simple to throw together, and can easily be made ahead of time. It is very rich, so a little bit goes a long way. Enjoy!
