- ⅔ cup of peanut butter

- ½ cup of milk
- 1 pre-made 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.
CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER: If you’re a fan of almond butter or cashew butter, feel free to swap them for the creamy peanut butter in this recipe.
Each nut butter brings its unique flavor, so choose the one that tickles your taste buds. Just be aware that this change may slightly alter the overall taste of the pie.
How To Make This No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
Once you whip up the creamy filling and spread it in the crust, let the pie chill in the freezer to give it time to set. Then dig in!
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 ten minutes makes them much easier to chop.
STEP FOUR: Freeze for three hours before serving. You may want to remove it from the freezer for ten 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.
