  2. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer with the whisk attachment to whip the heavy cream until thick and light.
  3. Add in the remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and the vanilla extract and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
  5. Pour into the prepared pie shell and freeze for 3 hours.
  6. Drizzle with melted peanut butter and melted chocolate.
  7. Top with mini Reese’s cups and peanut butter chips. Serve frozen or refrigerated.
