Do you like chocolate and peanut butter combined? Yes; everyone does. In which case: you will love. this. pie. You probably already know that I'm a huge fan of fruit pies... Cream recipes aren't always on my priority list.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Pie
(Printable version)

Graham Cracker Crust

3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups whole milk
4 large eggs yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Prepare crust and allow to cool completely.

Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in medium saucepan. Whisk in milk and egg yolks. Place over medium heat; stir non-stop until mixture starts to thicken and boil. Keep on heat for 1 minute longer. Whisk in vanilla and remove from heat.

Immediately pour half of mixture into small bowl. Stir in chocolate chips and half of butter.

Using a clean whisk, stir the peanut butter chips and rest of butter into remaining custard. Whisk both mixtures (separately) until they are well-combined.


Scrape the chocolate custard into the pie shell and smooth with a spoon. Carefully, pour the peanut butter custard over the chocolate custard. Be careful not to mix the custards. Smooth with a spoon and cover (with no air pockets or gaps) using plastic wrap. Chill in fridge or overnight.

Serve with whipped cream.
