Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients
- ⅔ cup of peanut butter
- 4 ounces of cream cheese
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- ½ cup of milk
- 1 premade chocolate cookie crust
- 1 (8-ounce) container of Cool Whip whipped topping
- chopped peanut butter cups (optional garnish)
Substitutions And Additions
TOPPING: Add a sprinkle of chocolate chips on top of this easy dessert along with or in place of the chopped peanut butter cups.
CRUST: An Oreo pie crust or graham cracker crust will also work for the prepared pie crust in this creamy pie.
How To Make This No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
STEP ONE: Begin by creaming the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar in a medium bowl at medium speed. Add in the milk.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with lumps in your peanut butter mixture.
STEP TWO: Once well mixed, pour the peanut butter mixture into the premade crust.
STEP THREE: Spread Cool Whip on top. Add chopped peanut butter cups to the top of the pie if desired.
Refrigerating peanut butter cups for 10 minutes makes them much easier to chop.
STEP FOUR: Freeze for 3 hours before serving. You may want to remove it from the freezer for 10 minutes before cutting it to serve.
If your crust is in a foil tin, pop it in a glass pie plate to give you added stability when transferring it in and out of the freezer.
How To Serve This Peanut Butter And Chocolate Pie
Serve your peanut butter chocolate pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. You could also add extra whipped cream or drizzle with hot fudge sauce. You could also add chopped nuts on top if you want. There are lots of possibilities — maybe you should try them all to choose your favorite.
Your family will declare this old-fashioned treat completely award-winning — and then they’ll beg for seconds and thirds! For another great pie recipe, check out our oreo pie and our creamsicle pie.
