As I was brainstorming recipes for Father’s Day I knew two foods that had to be involved, peanut butter and chocolate. The combo never, ever, disappoints. Plus, my dad loves this combination, so it just seemed fitting for Father’s Day.

Since the weather is finally turning warmer, the thought of turning on the oven is just no fun. Thus, a frozen chocolate peanut butter pie seemed like just the right answer for a delicious Father’s Day dessert this year. It’s super easy to make and everyone will go wild for it.

So here is how you make it.
