Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions

Preparing the Crust:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Make the Crust: In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate cookie crumbs and melted butter until well mixed. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan.
  3. Bake the Crust: Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Preparing the Peanut Butter Filling:

  1. Mix the Filling: In a large bowl, beat the creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, softened butter, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  2. Fill the Crust: Spread the peanut butter mixture evenly over the cooled crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Preparing the Chocolate Ganache:

  1. Heat the Cream: In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Do not let it boil.
  2. Melt the Chocolate: Place the semisweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of butter in a heatproof bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the ganache is smooth.
  3. Top the Pie: Pour the chocolate ganache over the peanut butter filling, spreading it evenly to cover the entire surface.

Finishing the Pie:

  1. Chill the Pie: Refrigerate the pie for at least 2 hours, or until the ganache is set and the pie is firm.
  2. Serve: Slice and serve chilled. Enjoy your giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie!
