Chocolate Peanutty Pie

So it’s been a really LOOOONG time since I cooked/baked anything indulgent or decadent. In fact a dear friend of mine recently remarked in the interval of a play we were watching together, “I hate that you’re all about healthy and clean eating now because I really miss your dessert creations.”

But the way I see it, if you keep these ultimate sweet treats for occasions only you enjoy them that much more. You almost look forward to the next celebration or birthday or in some cases, the odd Friday night 😉

My old man’s birthday presented just the occasion for me to get creative. He, not unlike me, ADORES Peanut Butter and so that HAD to be a key ingredient. This #RYEcipe has been inspired by 2-3 other recipes (little of this and a little of that) and been put together to form this unbelievably easy, no-bake, creamy, rich, chocolatey and gooey peanutty butter pie

This one’s for you Daddy !



Quick Look

Time : 35

You will need :

  • 36 oreo cookies (whole)
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • ¾ cup of unsalted melted butter
  • 1 ½ cup of cruncy peanut butter plus 2 tbsp extra (aim to get one with low sugar content)
  • ¾ cup of powdered icing sugar
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips (semi-sweet will do too)
  • ½ cup of double cream
  • 9 inch pie pan (2-3 inches deep). Grease the sides with some butter
  • Whole peanuts to garnish

To make :

1) Make oreo sand in a food processor. To the fine grainy powder add about half the melted butter and blitz again to form a mud-like consistency. Press this firmly into the base of your pan and freeze for about 10 minutes

2) In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1 ½ cup of peanut butter, the remaining butter and icing sugar till a relatively smooth mixture. Pour this over the oreo crust and smooth it down to the edges. Pop back into the freezer whilst you make your ganache

3) In a pan heat and melt into a mixture the double cream, 2 tbsp of peanut butter, the chocolate chips, the vanilla essence and cinnamon. Cool it a little and then pour over the top of the peanut butter pie filling.

4) Garnish with some peanuts and refrigerate overnight !
