  • Chocolate Ganache:
  • 2½ cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Chunky Peanut Butter Filling:
  • 1⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1¼ cups crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ cup salted sweet cream butter


  1. Prep the Tart Pan:
  • Line a 9-inch fluted tart pan with parchment paper and lightly coat it with nonstick spray. This will ensure easy removal of the pie once it’s set.
  1. Make the Ganache:
  • Combine milk chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the mixture for 45-55 seconds, stirring occasionally until smooth. This luxurious ganache will serve as the decadent base of your pie.
  1. Prepare the Filling:
  • In a bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs until well combined. In a separate bowl, microwave the peanut butter and butter for 45 seconds, then stir until smooth. Incorporate the dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture, stirring until fully blended. This chunky peanut butter filling adds a delightful texture to the pie.
  1. Assemble:
  • Spread half of the prepared ganache into the bottom of the tart pan, creating a smooth layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes. Once the ganache has set slightly, spread the peanut butter filling evenly over the ganache layer. Then, pour the remaining ganache over the peanut butter filling, smoothing it out with a spatula. Return the pie to the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 4 hours to set completely.
  1. Serve:
  • After the pie has chilled, carefully remove it from the tart pan by gently lifting the edges of the parchment paper. Peel away the parchment paper and transfer the pie to a serving plate. Use a sharp knife to slice the pie into generous portions and serve. Each bite promises a delightful fusion of chocolate and peanut butter goodness!
