Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie Ingredients

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Chocolate Ganache

  • 2½ cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1½ tablespoons vegetable oil

For the Chunky Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1¼ cups crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ cup salted sweet cream butter

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PEANUT BUTTER: If you do not like chunky peanut butter, you can substitute creamy peanut butter for this no bake peanut butter cup pie.

How To Make This Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie Recipe

STEP ONE: Line the bottom of a 9-inch fluted tart pan with a circle of parchment paper. Lightly spray the parchment circle with nonstick spray. Set it aside.

PRO TIP:

If you do not have a parchment paper circle, you can generously spray the bottom of the pan with nonstick spray or grease it lightly with butter.

STEP TWO: Using a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl, combine the chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Heat the chips and oil for 45 to 55 seconds. Stir until the chocolate chips are completely melted and smooth.

STEP THREE: Spoon ½ of the melted chocolate into the prepared tart pan. Using a large spoon or offset spatula, evenly spread the chocolate over the bottom of the tart pan and up the sides of the pan. Chill the coated tart pan in the refrigerator while preparing the chunky peanut butter filling.

STEP FOUR: Using a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Set it aside.

STEP FIVE: Using a medium-sized heat-safe mixing bowl, add the chunky peanut butter and the butter. Heat in the microwave for 45 seconds. Remove the bowl and stir to thoroughly combine.

STEP SIX: Pour the chunky peanut butter mixture over the powdered sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Stir until the mixture is completely incorporated.

STEP SEVEN: Remove the chocolate-coated tart pan from the refrigerator. Using either a silicone spatula or an offset spatula, spread the chunky peanut butter mixture into the bottom of the coated tart pan. Be sure the chunky peanut butter mixture is smooth and even. 

STEP EIGHT: Spoon the remaining melted chocolate mixture on top of the chunky peanut butter layer. Use the spoon or an offset spatula to evenly smooth the chocolate all the way to the sides. 

PRO TIP:

Once you have spread the chunky peanut butter mixture into the prepared tart pan, you may need to heat the chocolate mixture in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds before spreading.

STEP NINE: Once the remaining chocolate has been spread, gently tap the tart pan to ensure the chocolate settles. Chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours to overnight.

STEP TEN: When you are ready to serve, remove the tart pan from the refrigerator. To remove the peanut butter cup from the tart pan, center the pan over a small mixing bowl and apply slight pressure to the edge of the tart pan to encourage the sides to come away. Have a serving platter or 10-inch cake circle ready to place the peanut butter cup pie on.

STEP ELEVEN: Gently flip the pie upside down to remove the removable tart pan bottom, and carefully peel off the parchment circle. Place the serving plate or cake circle over the bottom of the pie and flip the pie back over. 

STEP TWELVE: Slice into wedges and serve.

PRO TIP:

Before slicing, allow the pie to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
