PB & Chocolate Pie
If your mouth doesn’t water from this picture, then I’m diagnosing you with Dry Mouth Syndrome. Even though this picture looks heavenly and all, it doesn’t do justice on how delicious this pie really is. It is creamy, delicate, smooth, sweet, and rich. With all of that said, it still happens to be gluten-free, sugar free, and dairy-free. Chocolate and peanut butter are one of the best combinations anyone can ever encounter. Making this recipe will lead to guaranteed satisfaction.
