This recipe is based on a recipe I found online for a Buckeye Pie. I've tweaked it to suit our tastes, and it tastes better than the original, in our opinion. It is very rich (with peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter, chocolate and cream, of course it is!) so start with a small slice. It's so deliciously decadent! Note: The pie in the photos does not include the optional garnish and mini chips.
