You know how there's that one dessert that you never, ever make because, if you do, you'll find yourself at the refrigerator door eating spoonful after ridiculously large spoonful until there's nothing left to do but
lick the bowl scrape out the last remnants and cry? This is that dessert for me.
It's basically a peanut butter pie that I've turned into Perfect Peanut Butter Pie Parfaits. Are they really perfect, you ask? Yes, yes they are. They're creamy and not too peanut-buttery with just a smidge of texture from the buttery graham crackers and did I mention the tiny bit of hot fudge that I hide at the bottom? It's a sort of consolation prize for that sad moment when you're almost to the end of your Perfect Peanut Butter Pie Parfait but then you discover an extra little treat at the bottom to help console you :)
I layer these with chopped peanut butter cups – and that's how I've written the recipe – but I actually prefer just a few on top. The Mr. prefers more pb cups though, so it's really just your personal preference. The beauty of this recipe is you can really do it any way you like and they'll still taste and look fantastic. A can't-go-wrong dessert!
