Chubby Hubby PIE…

Yes, gentlemen, it really does exist!

A cookie crust filled with more chocolate chip cookie, caramel, chocolate, and pretzel pieces, and topped off with massive amounts of  peanut butter!

People constantly ask me how I’m able to bake all the things that I make and be a diabetic at the same time.  I always say, “it’s easy; my husband and kids are my guinea pigs.” And that’s the truth.  I always “taste” what I’ve made, just to make sure that it’s good, but I rarely eat more than a bite.  Most of what I make is for other people, and many of the new recipes come from requests.

This pie is no different.  My husband LOVES sweets, and he loves ice cream, so when we had the idea to create an over-the-top pie, I took aim at Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby Ice Cream…”Vanilla Malt Ice Cream with Peanutty Fudge-covered Pretzels with Fudge & Peanut Buttery Swirls” I figured, since it’s one of the most loved ice creams in the country, why not make it into a pie! It’s a bit unconventional, but totally worth the experiment!!
