Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie

Miles and I typically have very different interests when it comes to sweets. Not that we don't love all sweets but when you have to pick sides Miles loves brownies and most of the time stuff with fruit on it. I on the other hand LOVE ice cream, cookies, cupcakes. Really anything with chocolate in or on it. BUT there is one thing we both agree on and it is peanut butter! I found a Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pie recipe that is a must try. is super rich!!!!

1 Ready made chocolate pie crust (I have the homemade crust recipe if you really want it but the store was out of chocolate wafers when I went to make this)
1- 8 oz package cream cheese, cut up
3/4 cup peanut butter - CREAMY
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whipping cream (NOT whipped cream) - it comes in a carton in the milk section
2 tsp sifted powdered sugar
3/4 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Step 1: For filling, beat cream cheese and peanut butter till smooth. Add the 1 cup powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla; beat until combined.

Step 2: In a chilled mixing bowl beat whipping cream and the 2 tbsp powdered sugar until soft peaks form. Gently fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Fold remaining whipped cream and miniature chocolate chips into peanut butter mixture. Spoon into crust. Cover and chill for about 2 hours (I leave mine in over night).
