Bite with Belkys: Snickers Peanut Butter Pie from Prime One Twelve
Tonight, we are craving a sweet treat and for that, we are stopping by one of the most popular restaurants on South Beach. It's time to indulge as we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Robert Gonzalez
The Restaurant: Prime One Twelve
The Dish: Snickers Peanut Butter Pie
4 cups of ground oreos
2 cups of melted butter
32 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate
3 cups of heavy cream
5 ground snickers
12 oz. of butter
8 oz. light brown sugar
16 oz. powder sugar
28 oz. peanut butter
32 oz. whipped cream for topping
Method of Preparation:
-Start by making a crust. Combine melted butter with crushed oreo cookies. Then, pat the mixture into the bottom and the sides of a baking pie pan. (A 12 inch deep pie pan works best). Bake this in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes and set it to the side.
-Next, make a chocolate ganache. In a large pot, bring heavy cream to a boil and whisk in semi-sweet chocolate pieces. Pour about three cups of the chocolate sauce over the pie shell and refrigerate until firm.
-Now, in a food processor grind snickers until it forms a dough. Flatten the dough over the firm chocolate in the pie crust.
-Lastly, prepare the peanut butter filling. In a mixer, combine room temperature butter, brown sugar, peanut butter and then carefully fold in whipped cream. Apply this over the snickers layer and top it with whipped cream.
You can garnish with grated dark chocolate and grated peanut brittle.
