Like I’m sure many of us, I can get lost in Pinterest for hours on end. I love getting inspiration, recipes, new ideas and even some great tips and tricks by scrolling through all the pages. In this new post I am starting a ‘Pinterest Try’ series where I test out recipes or DIYs and share with you how it goes….. I can only imagine not all of them will go perfect, but I will share with you guys the outcome!
This time I tried a Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Pie recipe from Carlsbad Cravings. And a little spoiler – they turned out AMAZING! I did change a few things along the way though, so keep reading to find out what I did.
I originally found this recipe when searching for a peanut butter dessert to make for valentines day…. my boyfriend loves peanut butter and chocolate, but I wanted to make something a little more exciting than buying a pint of ice cream. For ours, I took the mini pie idea to a whole new level. I decided to use mini cupcake tins to make the dessert perfectly bite sized. (And if you happen to eat a few (I promise you will want to), you tend to feel a little better than eating a few full sized ones).
Other recipe changes included:
- I added a little bit of extra cinnamon which gave the pie filling a great flavour
- I also left out the skor bits (they called them toffee bits in the recipe) in the pie filling and instead just added them to the top.
- I didn’t add peanuts or chocolate chips to the top either, like I said above, just the skor bits
- I also left a few without chocolate for my mom and just drizzled peanut butter and placed skor bits on top. My mom can attest, these were also delicious if you’re not a big fan of chocolate!
If you guys wanted to know, the peanut butter I used was extra creamy from Kraft. (This is also the best peanut butter for peanut butter cookies!)
Give these a try for yourself, they’re easy and quick to make (other than the freezer time) and also look professional and appetizing!
