Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I don’t know if there’s a more heavenly flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter. This No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Recipe tones down both flavors a bit, but not tragically so. The cream cheese and peanut butter pie filling is creamy and nutty, without being over the top, and chocolate comes in to play with a mild chocolate pie crust and pretty chocolate shavings as garnish.

This is a dessert that will impress crowds and parties — but between you and me, it’s so, so, so simple to make. It’s a no bake pie, so you don’t have to worry about it cooking or rising flawlessly. All you do is mix up a few ingredients and add them to your pie crust in two pretty layers, before letting it set in the freezer. See? Could NOT be easier! The sweet tooth afflicted in your family will declare you the day’s hero next time you make this No Bake Peanut Butter Pie.

Ingredients:

  • Cream cheese: this is what gives the pie body and structure and what holds it all together, you can use full fat or reduced fat here though I think why not go with the full fat…
  • Creamy peanut butter: you get the peanut butter flavor from, well, peanut butter. The texture is best from a brand like Skippy or Jif, don’t use a natural peanut butter that separate for this recipe. The texture isn’t smooth enough.
  • Powdered sugar: this sweetens the pie and also helps to thicken it
  • Milk: just a bit to help with the texture and beating everything together
  • Cream or Cool Whip: this adds lightness and fluffiness so all of the ingredients, you can whip up some heavy whipping cream or use a frozen whipped topping for this
  • Chocolate crust: you can make your own chocolate crust (here’s my recipe) or pick up one from the store, both work great
  • Hershey’s chocolate bar for garnish: you can grate it or make chocolate curls but it adds a nice chocolate element to the top and looks great

How to make no bake pie:

  1. This couldn’t be easier! You are going to get most of the ingredients (but not the cream) and beat them together.
  2. Then fold in the cream or Cool Whip and add it to your pie crust.
  3. Garnish with shaved or grated chocolate.
  4. The hardest part is letting it chill which gives the pie time to thicken. Enjoy cold!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the ingredients in no bake chocolate peanut butter pie?

This is a simple as-can-be dessert recipe. All you need is cream cheese, creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, cream whipped until it’s stiff (or Cool Whip), chocolate pie crust, and a Hershey’s chocolate bar to shave as garnish.

Can you make peanut butter pie without cream cheese?

You can, although the consistency might be a little different. I’d recommend using plain Greek yogurt in place of cream cheese if you prefer not to use it.

Could you make this into pie jars?

Individual pie jars are such a great idea! To make no bake peanut butter pie into jars, instead of using a chocolate pie crust, you can remove the cream from Oreo’s and crumble the cookies into a fine powder. Press a quarter-inch layer of the crumbled cookies into the bottom of Mason jars before filling them with the peanut butter mixture and topping them off with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
