    • In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
    • Gently fold the whipped cream and vanilla extract into the peanut butter mixture until just combined.
  3. Assemble the Pie:
    • Pour the peanut butter filling into the chilled chocolate crust.
    • Smooth the top with a spatula.
    • Cover the pie loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or until set.
