Kitchen tips

We used a good-quality peanut butter that contains only peanuts and salt. If you use one that contains added oils, sugar and/or stabilisers, then the pie will be a bit sweeter but will not set as firmly (though it will still taste delicious).

Not suitable to freeze. Chocolate suitable to microwave.
