Ocean Prime’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

A delicious night out at our local Ocean Prime restaurant made me aware of their famous Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.

Though I was too stuffed to order it, I knew I wanted to recreate their chocolate peanut butter pie at home! Disclosure: Ocean Prime sponsored our delicious evening on the town, but I was not compensated for writing this post.Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie | Chocolate cookie crust, peanut butter mousse and a thick layer of ganache make this one out of this world dessert!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

The hubby does not appreciate a good peanut butter dessert, but I had one of those cravings and had to make this decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. I could happily indulge in any of these chocolate-peanut butter desserts. Even before Reese’s peanut butter cups were at every checkout counter, my mom was making Buckeyes AKA Peanut Butter Bon Bons.

Back in the day, the chocolate was fortified with paraffin wax to give it a nice sheen. We loved when she got the same craving! My sisters and I did not give a hoot that this candle making ingredient was in our treats! We devoured these confections.

But fast forward a few decades and we have a house divided. The hubby and youngest son would snub this dessert, so I waited until we were having friends over for a holiday cookout before attempting this dreamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie recipe!Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie | Chocolate cookie crust, peanut butter mousse and a thick layer of ganache make this one out of this world dessert!

My Adaptation of Ocean Prime’s Famous Dessert

Instead of dividing this chocolate peanut butter pie recipe into 6 ring molds as the original Ocean Prime recipe suggests, I took a leap of faith and made it in a 9-inch springform pan.

Most kitchens are not equipt with ring molds nor mini-cheesecake pans, the latter being which I was planning to utilize.

Since I was having 10 over for dinner on the 4th of July this year, I figured one big pie would be easier to divvy up. My fingers and toes were crossed in hopes that it would not flop!! I was delighted that it was the best peanut butter pie recipe I’ve made to date!

Check out Ocean Prime’s Kitchen & Drink Blog for the recipe for the original, smaller pies. Or if you have an Ocean Prime in your area, just make a reservation and save room for dessert! Bill and I had a fabulous meal, with friendly, knowledgeable, attentive waitstaff and a lovely atmosphere. My shrimp wrapped in bacon appetizer and ahi tuna were and seasoned and cooked to perfection.

A decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie inspired by a wonderful meal at Ocean Prime, Indianapolis.

Ingredients

Oreo Crust

  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (I use Nabisco Famous Wafers) or boxed Oreo crumbs
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

Peanut Butter Mousse

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups heavy cream, whipped

Ganache

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • Whipped cream and mini peanut butter cups, to garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Process the chocolate wafer cookies in a food processor until very fine and measure out 2 cups. Add peanut butter and pulse until combined. Press crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove to rack and cool completely.
  4. To make mousse, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and powdered sugar in a stand mixer with paddle attachment until smooth, then increase speed to medium high and mix well to make sure the mixture is homogeneous.
  5. Add about ⅓ of the well whipped cream to the peanut butter mixture and mix on low until combined. Remove mixing bowl from mixer and gently fold in half the remaining whipped cream and then, when that is incorporated, fold in the rest.
  6. Pour the mousse over the crust and smooth the top with an offset spatula. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
  7. Make ganache by placing the chopped chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. In a microwave safe Pyrex mixing cup, microwave the cream until just short of boiling. Pour over the chocolate and let sit for 3-4 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Cool for about 5 minutes, then pour over the mousse. Return pie to the freezer.
  8. To serve, pie must be removed from freezer to the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving to allow to defrost. Slice and add a dollop of whipped cream and some mini-peanut butter cups to garnish, if desired.
