Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie

Sometimes the messiest things are the best.

I mean, I know the benefits to a good picture.

No one wants to see what your kids REALLY look like.

They want to see your kids with their hair combed, clean clothes and socks with no holes.

But let’s be real.

On any given day you will find my kids walking around my house in soccer shorts, no shirt and Cheerios stuck in their uncombed hair…at 3:00 in the afternoon.

I mean, it is summer and all, so it’s a little more acceptable, but you knowww.

So basically the same thing applies with desserts.  Or really food in general.

If it’s all sloppy and messy, apparently it’s not as appealing.

Like what if I made a cake here and posted what an ACTUAL slice looked like?  Not the perfect slice that takes you 17 minutes to get from pan to plate, because you don’t want any crumbs or icing smears…

Because if you had an icing smear…gasp!  It wouldn’t look delicious.

Well, I am here today to break the mold.

This “pie” isn’t perfect.  It’s actually not even a pie.
I mean, there is kind of a crust…is that the defining characteristic of a pie?

Well, whatever, I’m calling it a pie.

Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie.

I accidentally bought the mint Jo Jos from Trader Joes, but it gave the dessert a nice holiday twist, and it went over really well at my family’s annual Christmas party!

I have been making a variation if this for about 12 years now and it is a home run EVERY time. If you are pressed for time you can also buy the chocolate graham cracker pie crust. Love this website. Keep them coming!
