I like the idea of chocolate peanut butter pie. My mouth is watering. I will let you in on a little secret. Peanut butter was one of my favorite foods when I was studying in university. Peanut butter proved to be high octane fuel for my brain. That combined with hearty servings of tuna, sardines, both of which are very high in protein. Your post brought back fond memories of my days as a student. Thank you.

It does that for me, too....without all of the sugar, of course! LOL. Thanks for the input!

Oh my, with an allergy to cow milk I can only dream of this pie, but it looks wonderful. Maybe I'll try a "substitution" version one day. If it does not turn out to be "substandard" I will try to share that recipe.
