Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Whipped Cream

I let my daughter pick a pie to make and this is the recipe she chose to try.  It was easy to make and the whole family loved it.  

Recipe from: Texas Recipes
 
for the Crust:
1 1/4 cups salted pretzels
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar

for the Filling:
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whipped cream

for the Chocolate Whipped Cream:
3/4 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate
2 cups whipped cream
Chocolate shavings, optional (Kyla opted for white whipped cream on top instead)


For the crust:

Pulse the pretzels in a food processor until finely ground. In a large bowl, combine the pretzel crumbs, butter and brown sugar. Mix together.  Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Cover and refrigerate.

For the Peanut Butter filling:

Combine the cream cheese, peanut butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream. Spoon the filling into the pie shell, cover and return to the refrigerator.

For the chocolate whipped cream:

Melt chocolate in the microwave.  Allow to cool a little and mix it in with the whipping cream.  Layer on the Peanut Butter Layer.  
**If your chocolate is too hot and melts the whipped cream, cover and refrigerate it for 2 hours. Once cooled, beat the chocolate cream with a mixer until thick and spreadable (do not overmix).

Cover the pie with the chocolate whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings if using.

Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve.
