Chocolate Peanutbutter Pie

What you need: 

1 pound firm tofu
1/2 to 2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips, melted
1/2 to 2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2-1 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
1 baked vegan graham cracker crust

What you do: 

1. Put tofu in a blender with the melted chocolate chips and the peanut butter with 1/2 cup milk to start. Blend the ingredients together until very smooth, this may take a while if your blender is not super high powered.
2. Taste the mixture and see what else it needs. Add more chocolate and peanut butter to your liking. It may be necessary to add a little more milk if you are having trouble blending the yummy mixture.
3. Put the mixture into a baked pie crust and smooth out the pie surface. You can make fancy designs in the surface if you want.
4. Place the pie into the refrigerator for about 1 hour until it is firm to the touch. Cut and serve to the chocolate and peanut butter fans in your life.
Yum yum! This pie is so wicked! Make it for all your vegan friends!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is my go-to dessert recipe to please non-vegans.  I have eaten many tofu pies and "cheesecakes" in restaurants but I love this homemade one the best. 

I recently used a graham cracker crust, one package of extra firm/lite tofu, 1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chunks, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and two pureed bananas instead of soymilk.  I HIGHLY recommend the addition of bananas if you love PB&B sandwiches and because they make the pie sweeter.  I also melted my chocolate chips with the peanut butter in a microwave which really helped with the blending.

thanks hotcooknmama for your answer. if the supermarkets wouldn't close so early here at saturdays ;) i would have bought some berries as you suggested. :)

so i ended up sprinkling only some apricot jam on the pie crust and then added the filling (450 g silken tofu + 1.5 cups chopped chocolate + almost 1 cup peanut butter + pinch of vanilla). next time i'll rather use half a cup of PB (cause for me the PB taste was too intense) and serve it as a dessert in a glass with fresh berries, a cherry sauce and some soyatoo whipped cream i think. :o)

i'm gonna make this this week-end. to make it a bit fresher in taste (i'm scared that it is too herb/rich or something) i'd like to add some berries or other fruits. any suggestions? i've never made or eaten an peanut butter pie so i don't know what would go along with it. help! :)

I'd think along the lines of fruit that's good with chocolate: maybe strawberries or raspberries? Maybe fruit (or fruit sauce) on top of the pie, like you'd do with 'cheese'cake?

Taste the choc/ pb mix (from the blender) before adding the fruit, though... you may like it without!

YUMMMM! This is totally going into my 'holiday dessert' recipe queue... really just awfully deliciously good! Def'ly recommend a graham cracker crust-- that worked with it really well... I was working with a limited pantry- we're at that point, again, in the pay cycle!- so had to use 8 oz soft Mori-Nu tofu, & the rest extra-firm Mori-Nu... so, it turned out (predictably) pretty soft; kinda like a combo between soft pie filling & a cheesecake kind of texture. Slice-able, but barely... &  the three people at my house ate it up in about two days! It was very good, & I'll definitely make it again-- with firm tofu, next time. But even a little on the softer side, I'd make it again & again... Great recipe!

I was so worried about my pie....however....the next day (Thanksgiving), it was INCREDIBLE!

It set perfectly, the texture was light and fluffy! I cut a piece for my father, topped with bannana slices, and drizzled melted ganache (more choco chips & soymilk)...he loved it! And he hates tofu, it creeps him out.

This is a win-win desert for anybody to try! Also versatile, you could fold in nuts or different fruits for the season. I do recommend using the Mori-Nu extra firm and crunchy peanut butter...it adds a nice little crunch.

My version of this pie is setting..and I am quite worried about it!
Stupidly I didn't read through all the comments before proceeding and did not think to adjust chocolate chips. I used maybe a cup of p.b., 1/2 c. chocolate chips, and 1 box of Mori-Nu extra firm, w/ soymilk as needed. It was fluffy and tasted alright but probably should be sweeter. What bothered me testing it though was how grainy/beany it is even after whipping it w/ beaters...aaahh! Hope it turns out better than I expected!

dammmmnnnn this was a bitch to make! wow. first of all using the blender was a mistake. too thick to actually blend any consistency. i had to give up on the blender and used a bowl and hand mixer to beat it into submission, so double the mess

didnt even use as much tofu and had to use over double the choc chips and pb, even after which it still tasted like tofu, had to start improvising, added banana, vanilla bean paste, stevia, it STILL tasted like tofu ass, squirted some hersheys fudge stuff in it, used the one reese peanut butter cup, finally got an OK taste, definitely not worth the effort and the mess, speaking of which my mom is yelling in the kitchen, and I really need a shower.
but that was just my experience.

I think what went wrong was a) using blender b) it obv requires a very specific kind of tofu, and def not firm. c) the chocolate and peanut butter ratio is so very off. its a good concept but needs improvement.

:'( I'm sorry but I made this last night and it tasted not quite right. Just not good.  I don't know why.  My boyfriend and I were very disappointed.
