Chocolate-Peanut Butter Truffle Pie

Eat dessert first?

PB pie0508 (7)That’s what Grenville asked this weekend.

This treat was made after after fellow blogger, Daisy, posted a photo and link for it to the Pillsbury® website. Daisy said she took only one photo as the pie didn’t last long at her house. Since that could happen here too, these photos were taken first – after all, aren’t chocolate and peanut butter food groups?

Thanks for the link, Beatrice! :D I'm glad you liked the pie. It was a big hit at our house. My younger son, in particular, really liked it.

Sorry everyone cause didn't mean for you all to gain weight just by looking at the photos. We will be enjoying this dessert all week because a little taste does go a long way. Whoops there I go again mentioning how good it tastes.
Besides, we can all blame Daisy as her blog post gave me the ides to try this (thanks Daisy).

AC, so that's why we can't lose weight!

Sandra, yes we like all the ingredients on their own too and yes, Steve, these are ALL their own food groups...chocolate, peanut butter, cream cheese, cream.

Larry, trust me you would be fill on just the first serving as we found out.
