Pretzel Cake

1. Let your taste buds dance with this incredible no-bake pretzel pie!

1 1/4 cup Peanut butter, smooth 1/2 cup Peanut butter cups 2 tbsp Brown sugar, dark 1 cup Milk chocolate chips 3/4 cup Powdered sugar 1/2 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 tbsp Vanilla extract 1 1/4 cup De Vries Chocolate Double Velvet 1/2 cup Pretzel crumbs 1/3 cup Pretzels 6 tbsp Butter, unsalted 8 oz Cream cheese 2 1/2 cup Double creme Instructions

To make the crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium mixing bowl combine the cookie or graham cracker crumbs, pretzel crumbs, butter, and brown sugar. Toss with a spoon until moist. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish (I recommend a pie dish with a tall rim). Freeze for 10 minutes, then place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. To make the filling: Using a stand or handheld mixer, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, mix until combined. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold in half of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Fold the remaining whipped cream in until smooth and creamy. Pour into the cooled crust, then spread into an even layer. For the topping: Combine the chocolate and cream in a 2 cup glass measuring cup or a medium size microwave-safe bowl, heat at half power for one minute, stir then repeat. Remove and whisk for 1 minute until smooth. Spread over the filling, then top with chunks of peanut butter cups and pretzels. Chill for 2 hours, remove 10 minutes before serving and cut with a sharp knife (rinse under warm water if needed to get a nice clean cut). Serve cold.
