Spicy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie will take your Valentine's Day to the next level. Spicy cayenne, peanut butter, and chocolate will help spice up your Valentine's Day!
Sweet heat is one my favorite flavor combinations. Whether in a savory dish or dessert, I love contrasting tastes like spicy chocolate and peanut butter! Being from Texas, where it can be hot anytime of the year, I’ve eaten my fair share of icebox pies.
Simple ingredients and their no-bake nature make them the perfect dessert that anyone can whip up. And they're always crowd-pleasers.
The one-two punch of chocolate and peanut butter is certainly a familiar dessert favorite and definitely a crowd pleaser (just ask these Buckeye bars). I am a total sucker for peanut butter anything, so naturally it works its way into my diet in everything from smoothies to twists on my childhood go-to, peanut butter and jelly - and by that, I mean no-bake peanut butter and jelly pie!
I’ve recently fallen in love chipotle chocolate covered almonds, I can’t get enough of them. The subtle spicy with the dark chocolate and nutty flavor makes for an addictive snack.
The sweet, salty and spicy snack was the inspiration for this quick icebox pie.
I’ve never had a spicy pie, so I wanted to give it a try. I always like trying new things and seeing what I can come up with.
I’ve been playing around with cayenne in some other recipes, and I love how the heat of it gets you at the end. That slow burn. Love it.
Maybe it’s the Texan in me. Not sure, but that’s probably a topic for another post all its own!
If you really can’t get onboard with the sweet heat, well good news, this recipe still works without it! So win-win either way.
The cayenne folds into the cookie crust and gives this dessert a nice little punch at the end. Perfect way to spice things up any night!
