I wanted to make something for my friend's birthday. She loves chocolate and peanut butter so this is what I made. It's very good and dangerous. Tastes just like a Snicker's bar.

Lora is right this one does remind me of one of my favorite candy bars! The filling in this pie is really creamy. And who doesn't love a brownie crust?! Yum!
