2½ c milk chocolate chips
1½ tablespoon vegetable oil
CHUNKY PEANUT BUTTER FILLING:
1⅓ c powdered sugar
1 c graham cracker crumbs
1¼ c crunchy peanut butter
½ c salted sweet cream butter
Line the bottom of a 9-inch fluted pan using parchment paper. Give it a light coating of nonstick spray.
To make the Chocolate Ganache, combine 2½ cups of milk chocolate chips and 1½ tablespoons of oil, in a medium heat-safe safe bowl. Microwave the mixture for 45 to 55 seconds stirring until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Pour half of the melted chocolate into the prepared tart pan spreading it evenly on the bottom and up the sides. Place it in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the peanut butter filling.
In a bowl whisk together 1⅓ cups of sugar and 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs.
For the Peanut Butter Filling, combine 1¼ cups of peanut butter and ½ cup of salted cream butter in a separate medium-sized heat-safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds then stir until combined. Add this mixture to your ingredients mixing until everything is thoroughly incorporated.
Now it’s time to assemble the pie. Retrieve your chilled pan with its chocolate coating from the refrigerator. Spread the peanut butter mixture evenly into it smoothing it out as you go.
Pour the remaining melted chocolate, over the layer of peanut butter making sure to cover everything. Give the pan a tap to ensure that the chocolate settles evenly.
After allowing it to cool place the dish in the refrigerator, for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
When you’re ready to serve remove the dish from the fridge. To release the pie gently press down on the bottom of the pan while holding it over a bowl. Then place a serving platter or a 10-inch cake circle, on top of the pie. Flip it over to remove the bottom of the pan and parchment paper. Flip it back again, cut it into wedges and savor!
