This pie is a dream dessert for any peanut butter lover; a smooth, creamy peanut butter filling rests atop a crunchy pretzel crust. The filling is light and airy blended silken tofu — the perfect contrast to the crumbly, chocolatey, slightly sweet crust. For presentation, taste, and texture, top this pie with additional pretzels and a handful of chocolate chips.
