Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie


If you are a peanut butter and chocolate fan or a cheesecake fan, you’re gonna love today’s recipe. This is one I found on The Pioneer Woman. This recipe is simple, easy, and delicious. I must warn you it is quite rich. I would recommend cutting your pie into at least 8 pieces. Now I topped my pie with a drizzle of chocolate syrup to help balance out the peanut butter flavor. I also added a little whipped cream this time I cheated and used the stuff in the can. I even purchased an Oreo crust instead of making it from scratch. This was simple to make and oh so tasty. It was like a fabulous chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. I would also recommend giving it plenty of time it the fridge. It was even better when it had been in there a while.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

I opted for a store bought Oreo crust but you can make your own. Either way, you’re gonna love it.

Crust:
25 Oreos
4 tablespoons butter, melted

Crush the Oreos until they’re fine crumbs. Pour melted butter over the top and stir with a fork to combine. Press into pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes, or until set.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Filling:
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 (8-ounce) package Cool Whip, thawed
(My additions: chocolate syrup and whipped cream)

Beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add in the thawed Cool Whip and beat mixture until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.
Pour filling into crust, evening out the top with a knife or spatula. Chill for at least an hour before serving. (It’s better the longer it sits in the fridge). Then I topped mine with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a little whipped cream.

  • Your article is very clear. Possibly will you please post some brand new information about this? cheers

  • I made this last night and really enjoyed it. My kids thought it was too peanut buttery, but hello it’s a peanut butter pie! I think next time I will put in 1/2 of the filling and put an extra layer of crushed oreos or sprinkle some chocolate chips and then add the other 1/2 of the filling. Thanks for sharing. Yum!

  • Um Yum. Now if I only I could make an oreo crust before I eat all the Oreos.

  • I love the PW site and her Tasty Kitchen site too. This looks delicious.
    :)

  • That looks wonderful!! and a nice summer time dessert

  • Oh, that looks really yummy! My teen loves cheesecake, so I should give it a try.

  • yum! peanut butter and chocolate together is my favorite combo ever! I'll have to make this one soon! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Can't go wrong with that combo.

  • So I have to tell you a story about Peanut Butter Pie… My sister called our house when I was still living at home to get a recipe for Peanut Butter Pie (her husband loves peanut butter). She told me which cookbook to look in and everything. I spent 10 minutes looking for 'Peanut Butter Pie' in this cookbook, and when exasperated I told her that it didn't have a recipe anywhere I could find for 'Peanut Butter Pie', she said, "Well it's not called THAT!" Obviously I should have know that. I think the recipe was for Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. I'm going to have to pass this one on to her… It looks delicious!

  • umm that looks so good Laura. Love the chocolate syrup running down the side.
