Did I keep you in suspense long enough?! Last week I gave B a plethora of peanut butter possibilities for his upcoming birthday treat. After much deliberation, here’s what he chose:

(Sorry for blurryness on the pic, this instagram photo is my only photo of this pie since I made it late at night and it was taken to Brandon’s office early the next day)
I made the pie exactly how the linked recipe says. No need to change something so good!
But wait, I had so much peanut butter baking spirit in me last week, that I made two treats.

Yeah, I know, he got two birthday treats because I’m awesome like that.
Actually, he got two because I wanted to bring some treats to work as well and I didn’t want to have him bring half a pie to his office (presentation is everything, afterall) Plus I really wanted to try the peanut butter cup recipe.
I had three recipes on the round up but chose this one because I was intrigued with the salt in the peanut butter filling. It was a nice touch. I highly suggest it. The other recipes were very similar to my peanut butter truffles I made back in December which are also quite delectable!
The only thing I did differently in this recipe was that I used chocolate candy melts rather than a chocolate bar. And when I ran out of that but still had peanut butter filling I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Both were very very good. I think it’s hard to go wrong with any type of chocolate / peanut butter combination.
I over estimated how much peanut butter I needed, I guess that mean I’ll just have to make more peanut butter goodies!
