Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 120 g dark chocolate (about 4-1/4 oz), finely chopped
  • 1 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • Half pkg (250 g pkg) cream cheese , room temperature
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsalted peanut toasted

Method

In bowl, mix wafer crumbs with butter. Press into bottom and up side of 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm and dry, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool completely.

Meanwhile, place chocolate in heatproof bowl. In small saucepan, bring 2/3 cup of the cream to boil; pour over chocolate, whisking until melted. Let cool until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, beat cream cheese with peanut butter until smooth; beat in remaining cream and the icing sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Scrape into crust, smoothing top. Scrape chocolate mixture over top, spreading to edges. Sprinkle with peanuts, leaving 1 1/2-inch (4 cm) border. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Store peanuts in the fridge or freezer. Because of their high fat content, they will quickly turn rancid if left at room temperature.
