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 pie is absolutely amazing!

I think I pretty much doubled the amount of chocolate and peanutbutter in the recipe. It was sooo rich, just the way I like it.

:P It sounds, and looks soo good!

Instead of mixing the peanut butter and chocolate together, I think I'm going to make separate peanut butter and chocolate layers. I'll just mix peanut butter into a small bowl of the tofu (don't know if I'll use the "silken", or "firm" yet), and make that the bottom layer, then mix the rest with melted chocolate, and make it the top layer. I like layering too, veganbeing!  ;)

I'm going to follow hopfrog's suggestion and melt the peanut butter and chocolate before folding it in..lot's more mess, but if it's good, it's worth it!

And I'm also going to try sliced bananas on top!

Thanks! I'll have to look for those next time I'm at Wally World - those mini-pies would make for a good treat at a neighborhood picnic (although my local Wal-Mart sucks and probably doesn't have them, lol. But I'm sure one of the grocery stores will).  :)

hey feelinsoreal, I actually bought those little crusts at walmart. I made the pies for easter dessert and since i tend to do everything last minute, walmart was the only store open. but luckily they had plenty of vegan pie crusts to choose from and when i saw the tiny ones i just couldn't resist.

Hey Eldasa, did you make those mini-crusts, or can you buy them at the store? Those are adorable!

Eldasa,

I just had to post a reply after your picture post.  Those mini pies you made are so adorable!  And they can be used for so many versatile occassions like picnics, bake sales, birthday or giving to a significant other for a special day (when I was growing up my mom used to buy my brother, my sister, and myself a mini cake from baskin robins for valentine's)  Such a great alternative to baking a whole pie!

This recipe is great, of course.  We make it alot for dessert when we have company.  I always use one package of Mori-Nu silken tofu (extra firm, lite), about 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips, 1/2 cup soymilk, and 1/2 cup peanut butter.  One tip that makes blending soooo much easier is to melt your chocolate chips with the peanut butter and soymilk together in the same pan over low heat.  This makes the mixture so much more manageable than trying to mix melted chocolate chips by themselves in with the other ingredients, at least for me.

Sooooo goood! Even my completely against anything vegan younger sister loved this! And my tofu hating brother in law thought it was delicious! I used 14oz of extra firm tofu, a cup of peanut butter, and about a cup and a quarter of chocolate chips. oh, and soy milk but i have no clue how much. I started out blending everything in my food processor but i have a small food processor so i ended up transporting the mixture into a bowl and I finished mixing it with one of those electronic hand mixer things. and i didn't make just one big pie, i made 12 tiny ones! they tasted even better than they looked. i also put a slice of banana on each one which added a nice touch. heres some pictures:

Just wanted to retract my earlier thought of using silken tofu rather than regular firm. I'll stick to what I used every time I make this, because it was DEE-liscious! Just like cheesecake, very rich and thick. One small piece was just enough, and unlike cheesecake, I didn't feel so loaded after this dessert, just full. And I think I only detected a small taste of tofu because I knew it was in there; my omni dad didn't even know there was tofu in it until I told him, and I myself didn't even taste it as I continued eating. I can't wait to give a slice to my grandma tomorrow. Thanks again for a wonderful recipe! Even though I eat dairy I am always looking for a healthier treat (well, as far as saturated fat and cholesterol, hee hee) that resembles cheesecake, one of my favorite sins.  ;)
