Home Run Deep Dish Peanut Butter Pie With Pretzel Crust

What’s better than two great tastes that taste great together?  Three! Peanut butter pie with chocolate and pretzel crust knocks dessert out of the park!

We love us some peanut butter around here!  So peanut butter pie is always a winner.  But put it on a crust of crunchy pretzels mixed with rich chocolate and we are pretty much in heaven.



Sugar Apron brings us a mile high pie, loaded with taste and texture, and makes dessert the main event!  I would gladly fast all day, just to have an extra slice of this masterpiece.
