Today is my best friends birthday and one thing comes to mind when I think of her: Chocolate & peanut butter. This girl loooves her Reese cups. So, it’s only fair that I make something delicious for her big day (even though she’s 2 hours away and I’m the only one that’s going to enjoy them. Sorry, Judd 😉 Happy Birthday anyway xoxo)
Great timing as well because I’ve also been wanting to play around with a butter-less graham cracker crust. Found a few online and did some tweaking here and there … and tada! I’m satisfied with the results; satisfied enough that I’m ready to make it on a bigger scale. Keep an eye out pie lovers. Good things are happening here … 🙂
I’ll start by posting the recipe for the graham cracker crust, then we’ll get a little crazy and add some chocolate & peanut butter into the mix.
easy graham cracker crust:
Points Per Serving: 11pp
2/3C low fat graham cracker crumbs (I made my own by grinding up graham crackers)
1T light brown sugar
1T + 1t fat free greek yogurt
Preheat oven to 350F.
If serving it as a whole pie to serve out slices, let it cool in pie pan. If making individual pies, let cool in the pie pan for a few minutes then carefully remove, letting them finish cooling on a cooling rack.
And that’s that 🙂 Now, peanut butter chocolate tiiiime …
mini chocolate peanut butter pies:
Serving Size: 3 pies
Points Per Serving: 4pp
(& if you can eat just one, it’s 1pp 😉 )
easy graham cracker crust made into 9 mini muffin cups
2T PB2, prepared
2-3T chocolate sauce
Finally, after all the patience you’ve endured, it’s time to reward yourself.
… Gosh, I love birthdays …
