Will This Pie Hold Up in the Car?

valerie Jan 4, 2007 03:41 PM

I'm supposed to bring a dessert to my in-laws house for dinner this Saturday and I was thinking of making this BLACK-BOTTOM PEANUT BUTTER MOUSSE PIE. We have to travel about 45-60 minutes in the car to get to their house. Will the pie hold up? If not, does anyone have any suggestions for another chocolate/peanut butter type thing that will travel well?

    Are you in a cold or hot climate? If cold, then no problem. Either way, I would put the pie into a small cooler (a cardboard box is fine if you're in a cold climate) with a few ice packs and put the whole thing into the trunk and secure with a bungee cord. This will keep the pie from sliding around.

      We're in NYC, but oddly enough, it's been unseasonably warm. Thanks for your suggestion. I'm still on the fence as to whether to make this or just come up with something else. I love to cook, but desserts are not my thing!
