I’m excited to share my final recipe of #Choctoberfest 2020! I’ve been picking up grab and go lunches for my kids and that means we have way more milk than we can drink. I decided to look for a recipe for pudding and stumbled on this recipe. It’s basically a big peanut butter cup – creamy chocolate peanut butter pudding with a graham cracker crust and chopped peanuts on top.
Unfortunately, I’m not able to eat it since dairy and I are not friends … but I have three taste-testers in my house. My family gave it 2.5 thumbs up. My son was the only one who was iffy on it – he’s not a big sweet eater. I’m not putting much weight into his vote. I will say it smells amazing!

15 graham crackers, crushed
1 Tbsp light brown sugar
7 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbsp unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup boiling water
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
3 cups milk
3 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix together the crushed graham crackers, brown sugar and butter. Pour the crust into a 9-inch pie pan or springform pan. Press the mixture to the bottom of the pan and slightly up the sides. Bake for approximately 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
To make the pudding, add the gelatin to a small bowl and pour the boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved and set aside.
To a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Slowly add the milk, whisking until smooth. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. It should take approximately 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips until melted. Add the vanilla and gelatin , stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pie crust. Chill the pie in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. Garnish with chopped peanuts. Slice and serve!
