    I added some semi sweet chocolate chips & chopped peanuts to the first 2 cups of ice cream and I added mini choc chips on top of 2nd portion of ice cream and chopped peanuts. My husband and I just loved this.

    I also had trouble spreading the peanut butter/corn syrup mixture. I had to make a second batch just to have enough to cover the pie as the first batch of peanut butter/corn syrup just became a clump in the middle. The second batch I microwaved the peanut butter and it worked perfectly.

    We loved this! I used room temperature peanut butter and corn syrup and it was not hard to spread at all. Instead of walnuts, I used chopped cashews because it was what I had. Will definitely make again.

    delicious! However, I have trouble with the softened of ice cream and adding the peanut butter mixture on top. I have to use my fingers for both. Any suggestions?

    I really like Peanut Butter Pie but this one was not my favorite. The peanut butter was hard and somewhat difficult to eat.

    Try this: 1 cup peanut butter mixed w/4 cups softened vanilla ice cream. Spread in graham cracker crust (reserve some crumbs for topping the pie - if making homemade) and freeze. Much better (and easier) than using corn syrup!

    Best dessert I've ever made. Instead of topping it with walnuts, I topped with chopped up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
