Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache Pie

  • Food

It’s Thanksgiving Week here in the United States and that means I’ve got food on my mind. Well, pie . So I thought I’d share a pie I made this weekend.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache Pie

20 Oreo cookies
3 T butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

Process oreos in food processor and mix with 3 T butter. Pat into pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes in a 350 oven.

Meanwhile, combine peanut butter, heavy cream and vanilla in a saucepan. Heat until peanut butter melts, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and pour into pie shell. Chill at least 3 hours. Drizzle the top with melted peanut butter before serving.

I brought this to a gathering on Sunday and it was a hit. It goes a long way because it’s so rich that you really only need a very small slice to be satisfied.

Simple, easy and delicious. It doesn’t get better than that.

  1. I have an awesome easy and simple chocolate pie recipe if you
    ever want it. Just made it and had it this weekend for our
    pre-Thanksgiving dinner for family here in NC. Taste like a
    fudy brownie.

  2. Holy crap. I may have to try this instead of the classic choc. cream pie I was planning (hubs is not a fruit pie eater, so I always make one for Turkey day just for him).

  3. Yum! I need another dessert for Thursday so maybe I’ll make this. But I was thinking about your cranberry pecan pie. Tough decision!

  4. I used to love these sorts of pies and desserts, but now I find them just too heavy for me. However, I have been craving a cranberry pie, and I just read Beth’s comment about your cranberry pecan… that might be just the ticket. πŸ˜€

  5. Since I’m working the holiday, I need to take food items in for the annual potluck. Sweet tater pie is on on my list, but this might just have to be added on. Yum!

  6. Just what I need – another super-high-calorie yummy πŸ˜‰ I just may have to try this when the kids are here this week – thanks!

  7. Hmm… as previously advertised, I’m not big on peanut butter… I wonder if one could use marzipan instead. Or maybe I should just go for chocolate bourbon pecan pie.

  8. Wow, that looks amazing! Too bad I have all my baking done for tomorrow, but I can tuck this one away for a future celebration…
