Low Carb Peanut Butter Pie

My hubby is on a low carb diet, so for his birthday dessert, he asked for my low carb peanut butter pie. Elizabeth Rose, my four year old, LOVES to help me in the kitchen, so I let her do most of the work.
Super simple and super delicious!

For the Crust:
2 cups chopped pecans
1 stick of butter, melted

Mix pecans and melted butter. Pour in pie plate, spread out to cover bottom of plate. Put in freezer. 

Chocolate layer:
4 TBSP butter
2 squares of unsweetened chocolate 
2 TBSP Heavy Cream
1 tsp Vanilla
1/3 cup equal or splenda

Melt  butter and unsweetened chocolate in microwave for approximately 1 min. Mix in  cream and vanilla. Stir well. Add Equal or Splenda. Pour over frozen pie crust. Put back in refrigerator.

Peanut Butter Layer:

10 TBSP Peanut Butter 

8 oz. cream cheese, 
1/3 cup Splenda.

Mix together.  Spread over frozen pie

Chocolate Whipped Cream:
1 small container of cool whip
2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP cocoa

Mix all of the ingredients & spread on top of pie. Refrigerate. Cut pie into 12ths. Each piece has 5.3 carb. This pie is delicious! It's very rich so 1/12 is more than you think.
