½ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter chips
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl.

5. Serve plain or with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream

This is my mom’s go to for potlucks because it really is that easy to make. Originally called “Derby Pie” until that was trade-marked by a bakery in Kentucky. This version is my all time favorite. The original uses a full cup of chocolate chips (I add a little more because I like it chocolatey!) and bourbon. It’s a staple when you visit Kentucky, where I am originally from. You’ll most likely have it with bourbon there but this version is my favorite as it reminds me of my mom’s house around any holiday! When you enjoy any leftovers, warm it in the microwave for a few seconds so the center is warm and gooey and enjoy it with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
