{Recipe} Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Pies

I made these for our Thanksgiving dessert this year. They were great because I could make them ahead of time. I decided to make mini pies rather than one big one so I could test it out before Thanksgiving and because mini pies are so darn cute!
 The recipe can be found here.  I made some adjustments to my version. I used graham cracker crumbs instead of making my own. I had about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs (maybe a little more--I just used up what I had left).  The graham cracker crumbs are combined with melted vegan butter and pressed into pie tins (I had my tins leftover from this graduation party!).  Then they are baked for 10 minutes at 375F. My crusts were a little crumbly so I should have used more vegan butter to hold them together.
 The filling is whipped up in a blender: silken firm tofu (I used extra firm), peanut butter and agave or maple syrup.
 Then you whip up some coconut whipped cream and fold in the peanut butter mixture.
 Pour the filling into the crust and freeze until firm (about an hour).
 To make the chocolate topping, warm up some non dairy milk in a sauce pan, then add dairy free chocolate chips, let sit for 5 minutes then stir gently to combine.  Spread over the pies and sprinkle with crushed, salted peanuts. Return to freezer to allow to harden up.
After they were fully frozen, I wrapped them up individually and placed them in a freezer bag.  The filling tastes like peanut butter ice cream. You can let them defrost a little before serving or eat frozen. So good!
