Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
Filling:
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 pkg (8 oz/250 g) cream cheese cubed
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 cup icing sugar
Topping:
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts chopped

Method

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In bowl, toss crumbs with butter. Pat into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate, without covering rim. Bake in centre of oven until firm, about 8 minutes. Let cool.

Filling:
In bowl, whip cream; set aside. In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in peanut butter, butter and vanilla. Beat in icing sugar until fluffy. Fold one-quarter of the whipped cream into filling; fold in remaining cream. Spread over crust. Cover loosely and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Topping:
Meanwhile, chop chocolate finely; place in heatproof bowl. In small saucepan, warm cream over medium-low heat until bubbles form around edge; pour over chocolate and stir until melted. Let cool. Drizzle over filling; sprinkle with nuts. Cover loosely and refrigerate until set, 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)
