More About This Recipe
  • Everybody loves a good ol’ pumpkin or apple pie, but sometimes it’s worth getting a little crazy when it’s time to pull out the pie pan. Inspired by the undeniably delicious flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter, this pie is perfect when you want an easy recipe to switch things up. The flavor isn’t the only part of this pie that challenges traditional pie-making. This version skips the dough altogether and opts for cereal instead, which cuts down on prep time and adds a tasty crunch. But don’t worry, Betty still has your back if you’re looking to make your own pie crust from scratch. And if you haven’t had your fill of chocolatey goodness yet, Betty has even more chocolate pie recipes for the taking.
