I was offered a large ziploc bag of crushed chocolate graham crackers from a camp this summer. I thought I would make a pie crust with them. However thinking of the best compliment to that was a little tricky. I began googling chocolate graham cracker crust and did not find that many recipes, mainly using oreos or regular graham crackers.
Finally I came upon this Peanut Butter Pie recipe that I thought would taste much better on a chocolate crust than regular pie crusts. If you love peanut butter there is a good chance you love chocolate too.
I decided to add a little more indulgence by adding chocolate sauce over each slice.
The kids loved this. I thought it could have used a little more peanut butter flavoring and this might have been a result of not having crunchy peanut butter. Also I should have crushed the crumbs in the food processor a little finer than when I received them. Feel free to use a pre made one from the grocery store!!
When making the crust it is helpful to use the bottom of a glass or measuring cup to help spread the mixture.
