Happy Tuesday everybody! I hope you had a very joyful and restful Easter.

 It seems like I’m always late to the party (literally, sometimes!). For weeks I planned on sharing this pie recipe with you guys for Easter. I made it, (my brother) photographed it, and then… didn’t post it. Bummer. 

This past weekend was so crazy. Around Christmas I tried to get an in home baking business going but unfortunately, got sick which ended that. So this past weekend I had the brilliant (not) idea of setting up a booth with some baked goodies at an Easter egg hunt event. 

Well, what can I say? I love food. I mean, it really excites me. Give me a party involving meal/snack/dessert planning, and I’m going to go crazy – that is, before I resign and just ask to order pizza. But it really excites me that much. So I’m sure after that statement, it will be no surprise to learn that I made way too many desserts for this thing.

When the idea was in the early planning stage, I just wanted to make a few desserts. You know, like cookies, brownies, and a quick bread. It seems like that idea took off and ran away without me because before I knew it, I had planned (just picture my cheeks turning pink, here) brownies, four different varieties of cookies, two cakes, popcorn balls, chocolate covered Easter eggs, and a (not so quick) bread. While my cheeks are now red from embarrassment, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I wanted to offer plenty to choose from. 

In the end, I spent a crazy amount of time, for something that wasn’t worth it. 

And while you are all saying “I could have told you that”, let me just say, I know, it was stupid ridiculous but I did learn a valuable lesson.

The end.

Oh wait, I think I forgot something – this pie!

My consolation. 

The whole point of that story was to tell you why I am just now posting an Easter pie, sheesh. 

Let me just say that this pie doesn’t have to be specifically Easter. Just remove the eggs on top and there you have it – a regular Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Pie. 

I love this recipe as it is not only easy peasy, but quite exquisite as well. Chocolate…peanut butter…kisses…peanut butter cups…need I go on…?  It’s also great for taking to parties. 

Please, for my sake make this pie. It is so good and a nice break from time consuming desserts. 

I think we can all use a break now and then, don’t you think? 

Cottura felice!

The lowdown: This Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Pie will be sure to be a hit. Without a lot of time and labor involved, you can take it easy in the kitchen and plus, you won’t be groaning when it’s gone in 5 minutes. Flat.

I hope you enjoy this family favorite of ours – we anticipate it every year!
