it was really good
I used a premade chocolate crust. This was very rich and was enjoyed by all.
OMG...where has this pie been all my life??? I am such a peanut butter fiend and decided to try this on my dinner guests. Let me just say, sadly for me, there were no leftovers. And the beauty of it all, is it is so dang easy to make and toe-curling delicious! TYSVM for sharing a true keeper!
