How to Make Oh my! Peanut Butter Pie w/a Pretzel Crust


  1. Toss pretzel crumbs with melted butter, then press into a 10-inch pie pan. Bake at 350° for apx. 10 mins. Allow to cool
  2. Bring 1/3 cup of heavy cream just to a simmer, then remove from heat and add chocolate chips; stir until smooth and set aside.
  3. Using the paddle attachement on your mixer, beat peanut butter and cream cheese until combined. Add 1/2 sugar and beat until thoroughly incorporated (no graininess.)
  4. Using a clean bowl, whip cream until it just begins to thicken; continue to whip as you slowly add in the 1/3 cup of sugar. Whip until the cream is fluffy... then stop! You want to be careful not to overbeat.
  5. Using a gentle touch, slowly fold half of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Repeat with second half of the whipped cream.
  6. Add the caramel to your cooled pretzel crust; chill until set (apx 10 minutes). Repeat this step, this time adding the chocolate. Finally, top with the peanut butter mixture and a sprinkling of the reserved chocolate and pretzels.
