What do you make quick and easy when you love peanut butter? How about this light, creamy, fluffy, dreamy peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip.
If you love peanut butter, you will not be able to stop eating this peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip. My family enjoys my peanut butter pie and ask me to make it often. I decided to use the same light creamy filling in my pie as a dip. The first time I made it, I used the exact ingredients as my peanut butter pie recipe. It tastes amazing, but I had to put it into the refrigerator about four hours to get it to thicken up enough to be able to scoop it up. So, I made it again. My family did not mind a bit. I wanted to see if decreasing the heavy cream would allow it to firm up enough to eat it as soon as it was made. I also added some chocolate chips. It was perfect the second time, and we ate it immediately. It will thicken up it the refrigerator. If you are making it ahead of time, I would go ahead and use a cup and a half of heavy cream.
Why make a pie dip?
After dinner, I am normally full. I do not need a big piece of pie or cake, but I would like to have something sweet. I guess I have a bad habit of wanting something sweet after dinner from growing up in the south. Dinner is never complete in the south without dessert. We always had some dessert after dinner. I think this pie dip is a perfect after dinner dessert. It is light, creamy, and you can eat as much or as little as you want. After a few pieces of apples with this peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip, I was satisfied.
How easy is it to make this peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip?
To make this peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip, I used my electric mixer to blend cream cheese, peanut butter, and powdered sugar. I whipped in heavy cream and added some vanilla. Next, I folded in some mini chocolate chips and enjoyed this amazingly quick and easy pie dip.
What do you use to dip into this peanut butter chocolate chip pie dip?
We loved the apples with this pie dip. If using apples, you may want to use a little lemon juice or lemon lime soda on them. It will help keep them from turning brown.
