Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
To begin you will need to make a pie crust of your choice.
The one I selected for this pie needs to be pre baked. You can freeze it first, make a few holes with a fork, then bake. You can make a few holes with a fork, place a sheet of wax paper on top and lay some dried beans on the wax paper, then bake. This will help the crust from shrinking while baking.
