Chocolate Chip Peanut Pie from my cookbook, Something Sweet, is indulgent and delicious, but also really easy to make!
I’ve been teasing you guys for so long, first with a cookbook announcement, then a behind-the-scenes post, then I unveiled the cover and showed you some photos, but now, finally I’m ready to share a sample recipe from my cookbook! Make sure to scroll down past the recipe, because I’m also giving away a signed copy of the book!
I’m especially excited to share this recipe because it’s one of the first that I came up with for my cookbook, and it’s so amazing, so indulgent, so delicious – yet ridiculously easy. If you, like me, are a lover of all things peanut butter and chocolate, this is the stuff your dreams are made of. Just trust me when I tell you that this is about to become your new family favorite!
- ¾ cup dark corn syrup
- ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup roasted salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 ready-made graham cracker crust, preferably chocolate
- chopped peanuts, optional, for garnish
- chocolate sauce, optional, for garnish
- whipped cream, optional, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a small bowl, whisk together corn syrup, peanut butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
- Add peanuts and chocolate chips; stir until evenly distributed.
- Pour mixture into graham cracker crust.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Filling may be slightly soft in the center, but it will firm up as it cools.
- Serve at room temperature. Garnish with chopped peanuts, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream, if desired.
Note You might think this would be even more delicious when served warm, but trust me — it’s best served at room temperature, when you’ll get the optimal texture and maximum flavor. This dessert is very rich, so don’t be tempted to cut big slices.
Plan Ahead This pie freezes well in an airtight container.
