frozen chocolate peanut butter pie

marian requested this pie
for her birthday last month.
it's the same one i made for her 2 years ago.
super easy & super delicious.

frozen chocolate peanut butter pie
graham cracker crust
6 ounces dark chocolate {plus more for garnish}
2 cups whipping cream
one 8 oz package cream cheese
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
chopped peanuts
chocolate sauce for garnish
in a small pot, melt together the 6 ounces dark chocolate and 1/2 cup whipping cream.  stir until just melted and no lumps remain, remove from heat.  pour into your crust shell and allow to cool as you make the next layer.
in a mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup whipping cream, softened cream cheese, peanut butter and brown sugar.  mix until light and fluffy.  add in vanilla and the remaining 1 1/4 cup whipping cream and beat until peaks form.  spoon over the chocolate layer.  cover and freeze for several hours.  
allow your pie to slightly soften before serving.  sprinkle on more chocolate, chopped peanuts and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
