Creamy Peanut Butter Filling is topped with Dark Chocolate Ganache for the perfect easy and gluten free Peanut Butter Cup Pie

We do not live anywhere near a grocery store. We have one very unfortunate Piggly Wiggly and a dollar store. Seriously, that’s it. Actually, in our entire county there is not a single Walmart, Kroger, Publix or proper grocery. Any other store is at least a 40 minute drive from our house, which is okay most of the time. I plan once a week to drive into town and stock up on everything we need, but it does create some tricky issues when you forget one or two things you needed because it is difficult, if not almost impossible to find any gluten free options here in our little town.

One thing I never ever leave the grocery store without buying at least two huge jars of is peanut butter. We can make do without a lot, but peanut butter is among those things! It’s my husbands go to snack, my most of the time snack, and even the dogs preferred treat of choice (peanut butter bone anyone?!)

When I was assigned to bring a dessert for Thanksgiving I knew I would be making something with peanut butter. I picked up one of our favorite MI-DEL Graham Style Crusts from Walmart and made an easy, decadent Peanut Butter Cup Pie packed with creamy peanut butter filling and a rich dark chocolate layer on top! This is a simple, no bake dessert at it’s finest! We love these pie crusts because they are have a short ingredient list made of ingredients you can actually pronounce and are the ONLY comprehensive, Allergen Safe, Non-GMO Verified, Shelf-Stable Graham-style pie crust offering in the marketplace, which makes life so much easier for gluten free families like ours!

Here is how we make it! Combine cream cheese, creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer) mix well over medium speed for 2-3 minutes until it is well incorporated and peaks begin to form. Just like this!

Carefully spread your mixture in a MI-DEL Graham Style Crusts and make sure to spread it nice and evenly so your chocolate topping will go on smoother. Place the pie in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile bring 1/2 cup heavy cream to a boil in a small sauce pan. In a mixing bowl combine 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter and the chocolate chips. Pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and peanut butter mixture and use a whisk to stir vigorously until the chocolate is melted and a smooth dark chocolate ganache forms. Remove the pie from the freezer and drizzle the ganache over the pie and spread it carefully.
