Separate the eggs. Sprinkle the gelatin over cold water in a small saucepan and let stand until softened, about 4 minutes; dissolve over very low heat, stirring.

Melt candy bars in top of double boiler over simmering water; add peanut butter and blend with a wooden spoon until smooth; cool.

Beat cream cheese with 2 egg yolks thoroughly; gradually add powdered sugar, beating well. Blend in cocoa, evaporated milk, vanilla, candy bar mix and then the dissolved gelatin; mix all well. Chill until partially thickened, stirring one or two times.

Stiffly beat the room temperature egg whites with the salt; fold into chilled mix, then fold in the whipped heavy cream. Turn into cooled pastry shell and chill until firm.

Decorate with chopped peanuts and additional whipped cream if desired.
