The creamy layers in this No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie will have you reaching for another slice in a hurry. This easy no bake pie will get smiles from everyone.
Chocolate and peanut butter are my kryptonite. I can be doing great with working out, eating right, and making awesome healthy choices. Until I make or encounter something with chocolate and peanut butter in it, then I will be derailed in about .02893844 seconds.
Not that I’m sad about that at all. I mean look at the layers in this peanut butter pie. Yeah, totally worth a day of set backs.
And that’s the beauty of eating right. You can choose to have a day that includes a small sweet treat. It’s all about the choice the next day to eat right again. Nothing is off limits around here.
I don’t know about you, but if someone says I can’t have something, I just want it even more.
Last month around National Pie Day I was listening to the radio as I was driving somewhere. My guess is that it was probably Target again. Anyway, they were talking about their favorite pie flavors.
Of course, anytime I hear people talking about sweets and dessert, my ears perk up a little bit more because my sweet tooth is still large and in charge. One of the guys was talking about his all time favorite pie that had layers of creamy peanut butter and chocolate pudding.
Immediately, my mind went to this White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Pie and this No Bake Chocolate Cream Pie that I have made in the past. Right away I knew I had to mash them up to make the best chocolate peanut butter pie recipe.
See I told you chocolate and peanut butter goodness gets me every time. This time all I had to do was hear those words, and I was running to the kitchen to make something that included both.
I guess that’s better than running to the store for peanut butter cups. LOL!
The good thing was that our son was flying home for spring break the next day, so I knew I would have help devouring this easy peanut butter cream pie.
Cool Whip vs. Whipped Cream:
I personally like the store bought white stuff, but I also like the homemade whipped cream too.
If you are against Cool Whip, feel free to use a stabilized whipped cream instead. Either one works just fine.
I recommend using 3 cups heavy cream and 3/4 cup powdered sugar and beating that until thick and fluffy. That should give you enough to make the no bake pie and to decorate the top.
How to make a No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie:
Use a food processor to crush the cookies into fine crumbs. Go ahead and leave the cream filling in the cookies because it means we can use less butter in the crust.
Mix the cookie crumbs and melted butter together and press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Refrigerate the crust while you make the filling.
Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter until creamy. Add some Cool Whip and stir until light and fluffy. Spread in the bottom of the crust.
Whisk together the pudding mix and milk. Let it set up until it is nice and thick. Fold in more Cool Whip and stir gently until mixed in. Spread this evenly on top of the peanut butter layer.
Cover the top of the pie with more Cool Whip and refrigerate until chilled through.
Drizzle melted peanut butter and hot fudge over the top of the pie. Use a piping bag and icing tip 1M to swirl Cool Whip around the edges of the pie. Top with mini Reese’s Pieces and mini peanut butter cups.
