Wow! This pie sounds and looks absolutely delicious. I need to take a cream pie to an event and this will be the one. I don’t know if it qualifies as a cream pie, but it’s going! Need to order the pretzels as I have never seen them here.

Ha, I don’t think anyone would argue with you, Sue! 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

Stunning pie, Jeanine! Peanut butter pie is one of those desserts that I rarely eat, but when I do I remember just how delicious it is! I’ve had a pretzel crust before, but never a chocolate pretzel crust. 😉
Chocolate makes everything better, Shirley! 🙂 The little layer of fudge sauce is so good!

This looks delicious. I think a chocolate crust would be delish with this filling as well! Beautiful picure 🙂

Absolutely, Janet! I chocolate, or even graham wafer crust would be great. 🙂

We haven’t tried that brand of GF pretzels but Schneiders has stick pretzels that are just like the gluten kind! It was so nice to find them. If you ever get to the Bismarck, ND area, Mandan, right across the river has a nice gluten free grocery store called Lisa’s Gluten free store. Right off Main St. She’s great.

Thanks, Betty, I don’t think I’ve ever been to Bismark. Usually when we get to Fargo we start going south-east. 😉 Great tips though, I appreciate it!

OMG I’m making this, like now, but I have to make it dairy free. I’m so excited!!!

Oh, if you get it to work dairy free, PLEASE share, Jenee! I’m thinking whipped coconut milk topping, and dairy free cream cheese?

I made my own “cream cheese” with a banana, tofu, cashews and sweetened with corn syrup, that worked perfectly. I wish I would have thought of using coconut cream and next time I make this I WILL use that. This time I used a vegan whipped topping which was delicious but my pie was much softer than yours looked, and coconut cream would have firmed it up. (And I used rice chex with a little sea salt for the crust!)

OH, that sounds good too! Kudos to you for all the changes, and still having a great dessert – wow! I think the cream cheese, once you cool it, helps the pie to keep its shape as well. Well done!!

Is it ok if I post my version of this recipe on my blog (linking back you of course)?

Oops, doesn’t let me comment on your other post – absolutely you can share your version. Your pics & your words, and it’s all yours. 🙂

Been looking for a reason to make this, and since I’ve got to take dessert to Easter dinner this is going to be it! I know everyone will enjoy it, including me the gluten intollerant one of the bunch!

Great choice, Sue! Enjoy it! 🙂

I wonder if a g/f Rice Krispie crust would work?
September 8, 2014 at 7:16 am
It might, but it wouldn’t have the same crunch, or saltiness that the pretzels give it.

One word: Yum!
[…] This recipe popped up on my news feed one day, and I immediately made a new grocery list. It had to happen. Only one problem: dairy. My tummy cringed, particularly at the amount of cream cheese. The squirrels got to work upstairs. I’ve made vegan cream cheese before with tofu, and sometimes nuts, but this time I felt like using a banana. Just because. I mean, peanut butter, dark chocolate, and banana. How can you go wrong? And I also didn’t have any gf pretzels on hand (I find them a little too pricey for my budget), so I made my own version of that, too, using cereal, which is a great alternative to any graham cracker or crushed cookie-like pie crust. And super cheap, which is how I roll. […]
