No Bake Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

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.

What are the ingredients in no bake 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 Hershey’s chocolate 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 no bake peanut butter 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.

Notes

  • I had prepared crusts on hand, but if you don’t, you can make one… You could also put this in a graham cracker crust. Here’s my recipe for chocolate and graham cracker pie crust — both would be great for this recipe.
