This recipe is from the Martha White Holiday Muffin Mix Challenge, where contest entrants were required to use muffin mix as an ingredient in a holiday dessert. The winning recipe is called Peanut Butter Cup Icebox Pie and it was submitted by Joanna C. of Whiteville, Tennessee. Congratulations to Joanna!
I am dying to try this pie, but I need to find some fellow peanut butter lovers to share it with. If you try the pie first, let me know. I’m especially interested in hearing what you think of a crust made out of double chocolate chip muffin mix.
