The guys love this pie and I love that it is so easy. I'm a big fan of desserts you don't have to bake. Also, we did make this to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lovers Day and we believe this pie appropriately honors this very special holiday. So much so that we actually made two, so we had one to share. Holidays are best when they inspire us to give of ourselves. And when you are giving chocolate peanut butter layer pie, you are making people happy! Who wouldn't love this National Holiday? Geez!
FUN FACT: Did you know that peanuts are not nuts? They are legumes! Say what? Yup. For real.
