Peanut Butter Cup-Chocolate Mousse Pie

15 Oreos, finely ground
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided use
2 Davidson's Safest Choice Pasteurized Shell Eggs
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided use
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons granulated sugar
6 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, coarsely chopped

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together cookie crumbs and butter until well combined; pat into bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Bake for 10 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat 1/2 cup cream until stiff peaks form - about 2 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat egg whites (reserving egg yolks) and cream of tartar until very foamy - about 3 minutes. Beat in yolks, melted chocolate, peanut butter, 3/4 teaspoon vanilla and salt until well combined. Beat in whipped cream until combined. Place peanut butter-chocolate mousse into pie shell.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat remaining 3/4 cup cream, remaining 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and sugar together until stiff peaks form - about 2 minutes. Spread whipped cream over pie. Sprinkle with chocolate peanut butter cups. Chill pie for at least 1 hour before serving.

Makes 9 servings

  2. That's so sweet of them to come to your egg-rescue. Because, really, salmonella does not a Happy Birthday make...

    What a delicious-looking pie. I am making chocolate mint cookies per the request of my hubby. We're not big on Valentine's Day stuff, we stayed in, had a nice meal at home, and relaxed in our PJs. I remember waitressing Mother's Day Brunch where I worked - ugh. I can only imagine Valentine's Day. Whew.

  4. So what happened to the oreo cookie middles? I would probably eat them. I love the idea of this pie. I myself am not afraid of raw eggs. Too many years of eatingg raw dough and batter hehe.

  6. Oh my that looks delicious. I'm sure you and Eric will be enjoying it happily together.

    I guess no one likes V-day on a Monday? I had to celebrate over the weekend by default because tonight is dance class night. We chose a local restaurant. It wasn't crowded (I guess it's not the most Valentiney place in town) but there was some crazy old lady in there who wouldn't stop complaining. She made everyone in the restaurant miserable.

  9. Yum! Kinda like French Silk Pie but hopped up with peanut butter!
    I never could find P eggs in Kansas and can't here in Utah either. Guess I just need to ask in the right places and some free ones will show up.
    I miss HyVee and Dillons here in Utah.

  10. Yay for safe eggs! I need to be on the lookout for those because with all the batter I eat...I'm bound to get salmonella sooner rather than later.

    My birthday is coming up and I think I need to bake this for myself. Yes. Definitely.

  17. Seeing as peanut butter & chocolate are two of my closest friends - especially when paired together - I know I could face-plant myself into this pie and be completely happy :). Well done!

  18. Wow, that looks tasty...can't go wrong with pb cups.

    Since I recently discovered your blog (which cracks me up, btw!) I decided I needed to go back and read EVERY entry. I finally finished in about a week...and all while I was at work! Impressive, no? Hopefully no one here at work knows what I was doing ;)
