Hello, my name is Johanna and I love bread. Yep, bread is my #2 weakness when it comes to food.

I have an amazing friend who just finished her Master’s degree and has her graduation ceremony today. I wanted to do something nice for her as a congratulations and she loves chocolate and peanut butter. In fact, I’m to blame for her recent addiction to Reese’s hearts over the valentine season. So I decided on my quick peanut butter pie that any chocolate peanut butter lover would enjoy.
