This super decadent pie is a family favorite: folding the whipped cream into the peanut butter dough makes for a super silky pie, and the spicy chocolate cinnamon cane sugar adds just the right hint of come-back heat to this rich, no-bake dessert.


  • 3/4 Cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 Cups Crushed graham crackers (10 full sheets)
  • 5 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 4oz Cream cheese
  • 1 Cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 Full tin Spicy Chocolate Cinnamon Cane Sugar
  • 2 Tsp California Sea Salt
  • 1/3 Cup chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 Cups heavy cream (and a whipped cream dispenser)

  • Crumble graham crackers, California Sea Salt, and room temperature butter into a food processer, and blend for about 1 minute, until everything is a uniform, sandy consistency.
  • Firmly press into a 9" ceramic pie dish into a uniform layer on the bottom and just under 1" up around the sides. Refrigerate for 2 hours to set.
  • Add 1 1/2 Cups heavy cream to a dispenser, and charge with 2 nitrous oxide cartridges, shaking as you do.
  • In a large mixing bowl, pour in confectioners sugar, peanut butter, and cream cheese, then use a hand blender on low to fully incorporate.
  • Pour in 1/2 tin of Spicy Chocolate Cinnamon Cane Sugar and empty the full dispenser of whipped cream into the mixing bowl, then use a wooden spoon to fold the mixture into itself.
  • Spoon mixture into the pie dish, smoothing the surface to make it even.
  • Cover with saran, and pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours to set.
  • When ready to serve, remove from the fridge, and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips and a generous dusting of the remaining 1/2 tin of Spicy Chocolate Cinnamon Cane Sugar.
  • Pour in a Cup of heavy cream into the dispenser, again charging with 2 nitrous oxide cartridges.
  • Slice pie into wedges, serving alongside a generous dollop of whipped cream, and devour.
