Recipe of the Day: Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pie

By: Sarah De Heer

This post is dedicated to our fellow food blogger Jennifer Perillo, of In Jennie’s Kitchen. Her husband died suddenly and Jennie’s request of the world was to make a peanut butter pie to give to someone you love. Peanut Butter Pie was Mikey’s favorite and in his honor, Food Network is sharing one of our favorite recipes with you.

There's something about peanut butter pie that puts a smile on everyone's face -- a chocolate wafer crust is the foundation for a silky-smooth peanut butter filling. So wrap up the week on a sweet note: with family and friends and Emeril’s irresistible pie, slathered in chocolate to make it extra special.
