Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • ⅔ cup of peanut butter
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese
  • 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 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.

PRO TIP:

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 to serve.

PRO TIP:

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

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.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers covered in plastic wrap or an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. The premade crusts often come with a plastic insert that can double as a dome to cover your pie as well.

IN THE FREEZER: You can also store any leftovers in the freezer well covered for up to a month.
