This recipe comes from Emeril's restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana. Emeril Lagasse and his New Orleans restaurant are national gastronomic treasures. Inside his open kitchen, traditional Creole recipes such as this one are reborn in skilled hands.
For the Crust:
1-1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
2 tablespoons superfine sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons peanut butter
For the Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup chopped unsalted roasted peanuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup heavy cream
Optional Garnishes:
Whipped cream
Chocolate syrup
Fresh mint leaves
Chopped peanuts
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the butter or margarine, sugar, cocoa, and the peanut butter. Mix until completely blended. Press into an ungreased 8-inch pie pan and bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely.

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar together until light. Add the peanuts and vanilla and continue to beat until well blended.

In a separate bowl, with clean beaters, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold about a third of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten it, then add remaining cream and fold in carefully and quickly, so as not to deflate the whipped cream.

Fill the cooled pie shell with filling. Chill at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.

If desired, garnish each slice with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, mint leaves, and/or chopped peanuts.

It is a dessert ~ not health food!
Why do people come to the dessert section and negatively rate them on their fat contents? Got to the vegetable section for that. You obviously do not belong here.
