This Peanut Butter Pie recipe is OUT of this world!! This is hands down one of the easiest, most impressive desserts I’ve ever made. There’s only six simple ingredients — it’s the best no bake peanut butter pie ever!
The best part about this easy Peanut Butter Pie recipe is that there’s no cream cheese and no Cool Whip!
Last year I made this Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Oreo Pie and I got SO many requests for a peanut butter pie recipe. So here it is!! :) The peanut butter layer is creamy, dreamy, and super peanut buttery. Make this for someone in your life who loves chocolate and peanut butter, and they will be yours forever!!
This chocolate peanut butter pie is great for company because you can make it the night before, let it sit overnight in the fridge, and it’s still just as good the next day. It’s perfect for when you’re having guests over or taking a dish to someone’s house because then you’re not busy in the kitchen all day or making a mess! Just pull it out of the fridge and serve.
Peanut Butter Pie Ingredients
All you need are 6 simple ingredients — Oreos, butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and heavy whipping cream.
Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
First we’re going to start by making the extra thick Oreo crust. Finely crush an entire package of whole Oreos in a food processor or blender. Don’t scrape out the middle! You could also do this in a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin.
Combine the crushed Oreos with 1 stick (8 tablespoons) melted butter. Stir well to coat all the crumbs.
Pour the crumbs into the bottom of a pie pan and firmly press into the bottom and sides. I used this 10-inch by 2-inch deep dish tart pan from Amazon so the peanut butter pie would be easier to cut and remove from the pan, but you can definitely use any old pie plate.
No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
You can even make this peanut butter pie in an 8×8″ baking dish, making it easier to cut into squares and serve at a party. If you’re making it in an 8×8 dish, I would line the pan with foil (so it will come out easier) and press the crumbs only into a bottom layer.
I used a glass to make pressing the crust into the bottom and sides of the pie plate easier. Once you’re done with the crust, pop it into the freezer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, add 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, and 1 stick (8 tablespoons) softened butter to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the crust into a smooth layer and place back in freezer.
Now, if you just want a simple, easy peanut butter pie, you could stop right here. But if you want to take it to the next level and make it a chocolate peanut butter pie, here’s what you do:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
Place 1 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate) and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in a large glass (or heat proof) bowl. In a saucepan, bring 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream to a rolling simmer. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and peanut butter and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate layer over the peanut butter layer.
Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour until ready to serve. (You could also freeze it for 15-20 minutes to speed up the process.)
Crunchy Oreo crust. Creamy peanut butter. Decadent chocolate. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is the dessert trifecta.
We LOVE this no bake peanut butter pie recipe! It’s perfect for the holidays! And if you have any peanut butter allergies in your family, you can always use Biscoff instead of peanut butter, or make this salted caramel pie version. Enjoy!! :)

I’ve now made this recipe at least 8 times—it’s my step-son’s favorite, and he demands it every year for his birthday. Sooo easy to make and beyond delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
My husband bought me peanut butter to make the pie but he got the “no sugar added” kind. He said they were out of everything else. I’m assuming I can add more powdered sugar, but how much would you recommend?
I made this and the Salted Caramel pie with my two daughters today. They licked every bowl clean because the ingredients were simply amazing. Thank you for creating the easy step by step directions. The girls opted for using their pie dishes because “they are more Thanksgiving-ish.” I am hoping we don’t struggle getting the pieces out tomorrow. The pies look impressive!!
Could I substitute full fat coconut milk for the heavy whipping cream for the peanut butter filling?
To die for (maybe literally!). This dessert was soooo good! A simple recipe, but kind of a lot of work. Crumbling the Oreos took some time & energy, but in the end it was well worth it.
This looks amazing!! We’re doing New Year’s Eve dinner with friends who love peanut butter and chocolate and I’m bringing dessert, so this is at the top of my list. Can you use natural creamy peanut butter, or should it be a Jif or Skippy style PB? Thank you!
What brand chocolate chips and peanut butter do you think is best?
This is one my favorite desserts, not many restaurants offer and never quite same, often skimpy ingredients. I searched high/low for a good recipe, tried at least 6 before I found this one. It is by far the BEST true peanut butter pie you can find, I make it according to recipe using 8X8 dish. I do add extra oreos because my family likes more of a crust :-)
I have been making this for several years, it is AMAZING! Yes you can only eat a small piece but isnt that what makes a dessert so decadent?
I find myself coming to this site first for all my recipes, never disappoint, all started with this peanut butter pie.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Your recipes are amazing.
Love the recipe, but I made a change. I used a 11″ pie plate. A full bag of Oreos made for a thick crust, especially on the sides. I would probably use about 5 fewer Oreos next time and maybe a bit less melted butter too. Once I had the filling prepared, the volume looked like it was only going to be maybe 1/2″ thick, so I added 8 oz softened cream cheese which made the filling about 3/4″ thick. The chocolate ganache on top was very soft, maybe because of the peanut butter. It oozed over the sides of a slice. I would follow the recipe (except the crust which was way too much) if I was using a tart pan as shown. I took to a party and while everyone said it looked way to rich, almost everyone went back for seconds!
Oh my gosh!!!!! This is the best pie I have EVER had! Super fun and easy to make! I made it vegan, nut-free, and gluten free! (Subbed out for vegan butter, Enjoy Life chocolate chips coconut cream, sunbutter, and Glutino sandwich cookies) Out of control amazing! Thank you for making this Covid Thanksgiving so much sweeter!! ?
I was wondering… You think this could be doubled and made in a 9×13 for a pot luck?
Scott, Yes you could. Me personally, I would triple it.
I was looking for a peanut butter pie filling they didn’t have a ton of dairy and happened upon this recipe. I doubled this recipe and piped it in a trifle I made for my sister’s birthday party. So yummy? Someone said it tasted like peanut butter dreams in a cup…and they were right. I’ll try it sometime as a pie but this filling works great on its own too. Thanks for a versatile recipe.
This is a great recipe, however I found the filling to taste just like plain peanut butter so I added about 2 tablespoons more powdered sugar and 1/4 cup of cream and whipped it into the filling and that made it perfect!
This is the most incredible, decadent, luscious, rich and …did I say incredible? pie. Ever. I made this for company and it received rave reviews. I chose to use plain chocolate cookies instead of Oreos; I find the filling adds too much sweetness when the filling and ganache are perfect. Yummy good.
Although a bit too sweet for me, I love this pie. I will,probably use less sugar next go round. I used Kroger’s natural crunchy peanut butter and it was delicious. I also made a graham cracker crust as I had those ingredients.
Can this be made in advance and frozen?
If I wanted the chocolate to have more of a bite. What should I do? I want to put the chocolate on the pie crust first (same thickness as you hAve it), and then the peanut butter.
Was very good but vey rich. Could use a good whipped cream on top to cut the richness.
Can this be made in a spring form pan?
I am a real southerner…and I salivate at the mention of Peanut Butter pie & this recipe “kills it”—–nontraditional with the choco-top….and SOOOOOO easy to make….HIGHLY recommended!! 5 stars…..
What a delicious pie, I made it yesterday for Valentine’s Day today. Of course we had some yesterday it was spectacular! Mine has been in the freezer the whole time, that’s where I like to keep my buckeye candies so knew this would be ok in there too.
So glad you enjoyed!! Happy Valentine’s Day!!
How long does it take to thaw?
Do you use salted or unsalted butter for this recipe?
Made this earlier this year and it blew everyone away. I’d like to make it again, but am wondering how this freezes?
Delicious!!! Big hit for a birthday party. I made 1 1/2 Oreo crust for a roaster/ baker pan 11 3/4 in x 9 3/8 in x 2 5/16in and added Reese’s peanut butter cups at the top!
So glad you enjoyed!!
LOVE THIS RECIPE! This has become our go-to recipe for all birthdays in my family. Just made it again for the dozenth time for my husband’s birthday. Thank you for sharing!
Used graham cracker crust instead of the oreo (just because I already had it) and left out the peanut butter from the chocolate topping, absolutely delicious. Takes no time to make at all, great for a make ahead treat. Thank you for sharing!
Do you think this could be made with almond butter? It looks delicious!
Here i Denmark, the only peanut butter we have, is natural – chunky or smooth. It doesn’t really work in this recipe. It tastes good, but is not smooth. I tried with ekstra butter and even milk, but it’s just an oily, grainy, clay-like teksture..
I’m glad it still tastes good! What if you try making your own peanut butter? Here is my recipe for homemade peanut butter!
Can you order some of the creamy from Amazon???
This is the only peanut butter I make and I get rave reviews every time . I just use bar dark choc instead of chips because the chips tend to try and hold their shape. This pie is amazing and I don’t even like peanut butter
So glad you enjoy!!!
Made last night, fantastic. If you are in the UK like me and struggle with American terms and cup measures:
150ml double cream
250g smooth peanut butter
2 and a half standard packs of Oreos
200g dark chocolate
115g icing sugar
I didn’t include the peanut butter in the ganache in the measurements above though, as I left mine plain. Took it to work as a treat and my colleagues and begging me to make another one.
That’s awesome!! So glad you enjoyed!! Thank you so much for sharing the measurements!! :)
I’ve made this many times now. It’s my husband’s absolute favorite and he asks for it anytime I’m planning a dessert. I often omit the pb from the top layer to enhance the giant pb cup effect. Thanks for the outstanding recipe.
Hi Sarah!! Yay!! So glad you both enjoy!! :)
Thank you so much for sharing your Peanut Butter Pie Recipe. It does not get better than this!!!!
EXCELLENT! EXCELLENT! EXCELLENT!
So glad you enjoyed!! :)
Delicious!! Made a number of times and always receive compliments. I make it a 5 ingredient pie instead of a 6 by using a pre-made chocolate crust. So easy and heavenly!!
Made this for Easter tomorrow. I made a bit more ganache (for sampling so we don’t get into the glorious looking pie!) and I have to say, this is gonna be such a hit tomorrow! To die for!
This pie is so easy and fool proof. It doesn’t take a lot of time to make. It came out perfect. My family and friends devoured it.
Can you use natural peanut butter (with no binders)?
I have never used natural peanut butter in this recipe, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I would like to try it with my homemade peanut butter sometime! Let us know how it turns out!
How long can this stay good for if kept in fridge?
Should be fine for at least a week!
I found your recipe looking for a way to put peanut butter in the bottom of my pie because I wanted to make peanut butter and jelly by that I wanted to use a mixture of fruit topping instead of actual jelly. Yet no other recipe would show me a simple way to just put peanut butter in the bottom of a pie and yet here it is. For that I thank you . As for the actual recipe above …..it looks delicious and I promise one day I’ll make it but today it’s PB&J.
Love this giant peanut butter cup recipe – soooooo easy and fun to make!!!
Hi there – can I use natural peanut butter? Like, the real stuff you have to stir..?
Hi Toni! I’ve never made it with natural peanut butter, but it shouldn’t be a problem.. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out! :)
This may be obvious–have to ask. Do you use salted peanut butter?
Do you use salted butter?
Yes, I just use regular creamy Jif and salted butter.
I have made this recipe at least 10 times as it is my go to peanut butter pie recipe. I occasionally try other recipes but always end up coming back to this one. My husband and I both agree – this pie is awesome!!!!
Hey you two. Just want to say you have the BEST recipes for desserts! I mean the best.
This was wonderful. I will make it again!! I made it for my sister in law’s birthday, my daughter helped. I will admit I added one half brick of cream cheese to the peanut butter layer as I thought this sounded too sweet. The crust was crunchy, filling is smooth and rich but not too sweet, and the ganache was a nice finishing touch. Everyone loved the pie. The only thing I would do differently is to grind up the cookies in a Vitamix or food processor. Crushing them in a plastic bag was tedious. Not as easy as graham crackers to break up. Otherwise relatively easy to put together and not too time consuming. Thank you!!
Thanks for the tips. Do you recommend using salted peanut butter? And do you recommend salted butter?
Oh my!!!! This is so good!
This has to be the all-time best peanut butter pie I have ever made …and I have made lots of them. Do NOT hesitate to make it!
I made this (doubled) for my husband’s birthday party. I used peanut butter Newman O’s instead of Oreos and I added extra chopped Newman O’s and chopped PB cups on top before the final refrigeration to set the ganache top. It was delicious but the best part was that it’s so rich I was able to have enough tiny slices in a 9×13 inch pan to feed like 30 people dessert. The slices could be teeny because each piece packs a wallop. It’s basically candy. But soooooo good.
Oh, that pie looks fabulous! We love PB at our home so will definitely make this pie.
I want to learn this!
Made it for my peanut butter loving husband on his birthday. Easy recipe, turns out really good. Had some tweaks as I didn’t have the exact ingredients like chunky peanut butter instead of creamy and chocolate bar instead of chips. Turned out just fine.
My husband just said, “This is like the best pie ever!” Truly, it’s a keeper! And, it is devoid of Cool Whip and cream cheese. Yum! It is too rich for me to eat more than one piece but that did not stop him. Thank you so much for providing this recipe.
I must say this is the most amazing Peanut Butter Pie ever. My brother says is it better than all the local restaurants too. And thank you for NOT using Cream Cheese or Cool Whip… I hate that stuff. I am making this again today (by request) to bring for Easter. I use only the best ingredients, so my peanut butter is either Smuckers or Laura Scudders (the kind with the oil so you have to stir) and the chocolate is Ghiradelli. Believe it or not, changing those 2 ingredients to the finest available makes your pie taste like you could serve it at a 5 star restaurant. I simply adore this dish. Thanks for sharing it!
Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips or Milk Chocolate?
This will be the 2nd time I’ve made this and it is awesome!! Everyone loves it!!
I made this tonight for my husband’s birthday “cake.” He was so pleased!!! Thank you for the recipe, we thought this was amazing!
I just made this and put it in the fridge. Easy to do. I made it for my son’s birthday. It sure will satisfy the peanut butter and chocolate lovers :)
This pie is so delicious! I made it for Friendsgiving and it was a huge hit! It tastes like an even more delicious Reeses peanut butter cup; everyone loved it plus it was really easy to make!
I have made this several times and my family loves it! I am always in charge of the pie now. However I need to prep ahead of time and make it before traveling for the holiday.
Do you think if I make it today , Tuesday and freeze it until thursday it will okay? Any suggestions to keep it freshest?
I cheated and used the wafer disc of chocolate
this was so wickedly awesome!! even better than reeses peanut butter cups, if such a thing is possible!!! Thank you!!
Quick question is powdered sugar necessary ?
This looks amazing!!!
Do you think I could sub the thick part of coconut milk for the whipping cream?
Directions are to put heavy whipping cream on med-high heat and bring to a rolling “simmer”. Do you mean rolling boil? I’ve never heard of a rolling simmer. Is it just until boiling so it doesn’t scorch? Going to the store for ingredients for this recipe and your home made ice cream. Then directly to to gym!!! Your recipes are “EDIBLE ART”!!!! “INCREDIBLE EDIBLE ART”

My family flipped over this recipe .I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9 x 13 pan. Be sure to spray the pan with cooking spray so nothing sticks . THANKS FOR THIS RECIPE!!!!!
Amanda, stopped on over from instagram to say hello and I don’t think I ever want to leave!! This peanut butter pie is dreamy. Sharing of course!!! Looking forward to keeping in touch.
I made this exactly as printed. Delicious. However after a full afternoon in the refrigerator the peanut butter filling was not set. It was as soft as when first put in pie shell. What do you think happened?
This was SO easy! My 12-year-old son helped me make it!
Does not work with all natural peanut butter..way too thick and crumbly…
Can this be made the day ahead? Should it be stored in the freezer or refrigerator?
Yes please! Your photos are so beautiful I feel like I can grab a fork and take a bite right through my computer screen. I so wish! :)
I have made this about a dozen times.Its nothing short of incredible.Lots of great comments.
Have you made it ahead of time? If so, how did you store it? Thanks!
Does this pie Require refrigeration after it sets up? I would like to take to a family function but there is little fridge room. Thank you!
I JUST made this for 4th of July. It looks really good. But what I appreciate most is that it is an EASY, NO BAKE dessert for summer. I used canned coconut milk for the ganache, and I’m sure it will work great as I’ve used canned coconut milk to replace cream in many desserts, including chocolate cream pie.
This pie is perfect! Making it for a second time this weekend and can’t wait to indulge! Thank you !!!
Yes, yes and yes. This recipe has all my favorites and just yes. Want, need, must have!
Does anyone know how far in advance you can make this pie? How about 2 days in advance?
Made it a week ago, & it turned out great. Just a little too rich, my friends & I agreed! May want to cut the ingredients into halves, instead of using a whole cup. Powdered sugar was very rich.
Awesome!! My dinner guests said this should be outlawed.
Delicious! I’ve already made this twice in 1 week..for my pregnant daughter and her peanut butter craving and her sister’s birthday! This will be a regular, thank you!
Could you make this in a cheesecake pan that has removable sides? I don’t have a tart pan.
hey y’all, i was wondering if you could make this ahead of time and freeze. im hosting a shower and would love to serve this but the next few weeks are chaotic and would love to just have to thaw something. thought?
Question- can I make the peanut butter pie in advance & freeze it a couple of weeks before needed for a family gathering?
Did you end up freezing this? How did it work?
I can’t wait to make this looks so easy & delicious. Will let you know how it comes out.
Oh wow, I had a pie like this today in a lovely little cafe in the foothills of Perth, WA today and went looking for a similar recipe…I’m hoping yours is the one! It was so good that my mum made me share the last little piece of the pie we had today!
PS – love your bright and breezy blog!
Excellent. Going to try the topping with butterscotch chipettes.
Just made this for Pi day at work. I used a store bought crust but it was still AMAZING!!!! Super creamy, silky texture…super rich too!!! Will definitely make this again!!!
Semi sweet or milk chocolate chips?
This was delicious! I doubled the dark chocolate ganache layer, and made a video of the process for my blog’s YouTube cooking segment! Link to your recipe in the description. Thanks for such a tasty treat!
Could you add Mint flavor to this? If so how much would you add
I consider myself to be a pretty good cook, except for pies. This one was so easy! Followed the directions almost to a T ( I made a bit more ganache because more is better right? 1 1/2 c chips, 3 Tbsp PB, and 3/4 c cream) It’s sitting in the fridge for my sons birthday party tonight, can’t wait to try it!
Thanks for adding how many Oreos to use as we have different size packets down here in Australia
dari oreo toh
It’s in the fridge, ready for boyfriend’s birthday. Took longer than I expected and sure dirtied up a lot of bowls and spoons and things! Wish I’d had an empty dishwasher. A few things I will do differently next time include digging my food processor out….took forever to crush the Oreos in the zip lock ….plus a lot of the crumbs stuck to the inside. One small jar of peanut butter is just about 1 1/2 cups….so you don’t have to dirty a measuring cup. Leave the 2 tablespoons behind for the topping. Make sure the cream is good and hot, I was afraid of scorching so took it off the stove too soon and the chocolate chips did not melt all the way. I’m sure it will taste good anyway, but it doesn’t look smooth like the picture. It looks fab….gonna have it for breakfast!
I just made this yesterday. It was way too rich. I would fold cool whip into the peanut butter to make it a little less dense. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla to the peanut butter mixture.
I’m from the UK. Is powdered sugar the same as icing sugar or is it caster sugar.
Yes it is (Michele from Australia)
This was so freaking amazing that I now make it for my brother every Christmas because he couldn’t get over how delcious it was! That being said.. I found this recipe to have a ridiculous amount of butter in it, so I altered the recipe by only adding 4-5 tbsps of butter to the oreo’s for the crust and only adding 3-4 tbps to the peanut butter filling. I also cut the amount of sugar in half for the pb filling because I’m not one for super sweet and I used all natural peanut butter. Still had great success and still equally as delicious!
I also make the caramel pie too, it’s AH-Mazing!!
Awesome recipes! :D
Wow this chocolate peanut pie looks so heavenly! Love the easy crumb crust, I can’t wait to make thie!
This looks amazing! Going to make it tomorrow but I have a question. Do you grease the pan or is the butter is the crust enough to get the sides off? Thanks so much!
Sorry for the typo! Can the peanut butter pie be made ahead of time and frozen? Thank you!
Can the peanut butter probe made a week ahead of time and frozen? Thanks!
This was delicious! Made it with peanut butter for Friendsgiving then again with Nutella for family! Added about a half of a cup with heavy whipping cream to the Nutella layer for color difference! Thanks for the post! Yummmmmm!
i followed the recipe exactly the way it is and for some reason my oreo pie crust isn’t hardening! i’ve had it refrigerated overnight and still not hardening :(
Would this work in a springform pan, or do you think the crust will break?
I don’t have a stand mixer can I use a hand mixer for the filling? Thanks
I don’t have a mixer can I use a hand mixer ?
How many days before can you make this pie please?
Amanda, My youngest is in college and home for Thanksgiving and all she wants is a Peanut Butter Pie! Lol! I love your version so this will be on our dessert menu. Thank you!!
HOW many days in advance can i make this? How long can it stay in the fridge or freezer?
Going to try this with plain graham crust and substituting WowButter (peanut allergic toddler) for our family Thanksgiving!
Any idea about how many cups of graham cracker crumbs I need for the crust?
do you no If I could make the topping with Lactose free milk and Dark chocolate chips?
How could I make this for a bake sale (pan wise)?
I would use a store bought oreo cookie crust in a disposable pan that way they could just buy the whole thing. ;)
Absolutely decadent! Came out exactly as pictured. I used a regular pie plate vs. a tart pan. This is definitely a company worthy dessert. Thank you.
It’s look delicious:) ? Will try today,? Hope. AND IF YOU LET ME I’M GONNA TRANSLATE TURK?SH AND PUT MY WEBSITE;) :)
Okayyyyyyy, the ONLY problem with this pie is that somehow it tastes even better than it looks! ! Made it and my husband just said that it’s the best pie he’s had in his life! !5 stars and 2 thumbs way up! !
I want to use a 14×5 pan to make this… But am really not sure on the measurements. Can anyone help?
Do you have to use heavy whippin cream?
substitute ¾ cup milk and ¼ melted butter thoroughly mixed. It won’t whip but otherwise will work well in any recipe that calls for heavy cream.
I found this, because I don’t have heavy whipping cream.
When I saw this on your pinterest it was with a statement which bothered me. It was stating that the picture and recipe was for a doggy treat. But they can’t have chocolate. Maybe you aren’t aware that that statement is there. I have seen a similiar dessert recipe with a salted caramel done by a bakery in NYC.
I’m about to make this recipe and it says 1 cup of butter. 8 tablespoons for crust and 8 tablespoons for the filing. Do I use an additional 2 tablespoons for the ganache?
oh never mind. I read it wrong the first time
Wow! This is the kind of dessert I would happily pay $10. for in a restaurant, beautiful presentation, EASY to make, and OMG delicious! I followed recipe exactly, used salted butter and Jif creamy peanut butter.
Thank you for the recipe!
So looking forward to trying out this recipe. Although I am curious, what can I add to the peanut butter mixture to help it set up firmer so that it might last a bit longer out at room temp before it completely melts because the pie gets warmer??????
I was wondering if adding a couple tsp of cornstarch might do the trick????? And other suggestions would be great :)
Anyone else had any ideas about that?
As someone who loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, this pie is truly amazing. It was so simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing. You can’t go wrong with this pie for your next family gathering or just enjoying at home with your loved ones. Kids and adults alike will love it.
I have actually tried several different peanut butter pies because I love them but this one was really good. Not only did it have the peanut butter but it had chocolate too which makes anything better. Thanks for this recipe. I’m definitely going to be trying it for our next family gathering.
This is really good. Definitely use a larger pan or mine was passable in a deep dish 9 inch pie plate, NOT in a regular 9 inch pie plate. Cut it when it’s just out of the fridge or freezer, once it warms up a bit it’s harder to cut… pb layer squishes out :)
Looks divine and I can’t wait to try it. I’m curious of one thing. One of the pics showing the crust being made appears to have a white powder in the bowl with the melted butter and cookie crumbs. Is this powdered sugar? The recipe does not indicate anything other cookies and butter.
Would this be able to be shipped? As in sent to loved one overseas?
This looks so great and tasty!!
It sounds great! I am vegan. what can I use instead of the heavy whipped cream? thanks!
I so hate cool whip! It is a joy to find a recipe that does not contain this…this…substance! I can’t bring myself to refer to it as an ingredient! :-) Thanks for a great recipe!
I can not believe how yummy this is! I couldn’t stop eating it out of my plate! Thank you so much – I look forward to eating this all hours – amazing!
Hi! I made this with the cookie butter because my daughter is allergic to peanut butter. I used a 13×9 glass dish because I wanted it to go a long way. Since I used the cookie butter which to me is super sweet, I did add 8oz of cream cheese and doubled the chocolate recipe part. It turned out wonderful! Thanks so much! :)
This pie is amazing! My husband and my son are both big peanut butter and chocolate lovers so this was a very big hit at my house. I will be making this pie often as I’ve already had request to make it again. Thanks Kevin and Amanda!
Thank you so much for sharing! I will be making this for my hubby’s birthday in June. Love that it is no bake, and sounds super uncomplicated. Thanks again!
Can you use crunchy peanut butter
I am wondering the same thing! Did you try it with crunchy?
ðŸ´ðŸ˜ oh yum! I have it chilling in the fridge for Mothers Day, tomorrow. Can’t wait.
Can you use smooth peanut butter instead of creamy?Â
This pie inspired me this weekend! I am just starting my first blog and I posted a recipe similar to these except I used less butter, a chocolate graham cracker crust, and chopped Reeses on top! It was super good and easy. Thanks for the idea :) I hope to be as wonderful a photographer/blogger as you someday!
This recipe is so awesome and versatile! I switched out the Oreo crust for a homemade graham cracker crust and I also switched out peanut butter for the reeses chocolate peanut butter spread :) added crushed reeses to inside of the pie and switched out chocolate chips for Reese’s peanut butter chips and my boyfriend who is crazy for reeses couldn’t get enough. Thanks for this awesome recipe!!!!
Thank you! My brother’s favorite is peanut butter and chocolate, so I made this for his birthday yesterday. He loved it! Great recipe – thank you!
This looks right up my alley! Thanks. know MY Boston Terrier (rescue) will be begging for some!
Even tho Your Boston Terrier may beg for some, PLEASE don’t give it any because chocolate is poisonous to dogs. The smaller the dog — the less it takes to be harmful.
Oh Yeah, I am making this!!!
I Like this blog. I have made this on last weekend and it taste nice! I love dessert or bites in peanut butter! Thanks for sharing this
This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it!
I made this using the yellow Oreos the 2nd time and everyone loved much much more than the normal Oreos!
Hey! Love this blog. Are you ever going to come back and make the first post of 2016?
Best pie EVER!! Do yourself a favor and make this now! What are you waiting for?!?!? Peanut butter, chocolate, and oreos? Kill me now.. Do yourself a favor and make that chocolate topping as well! Thanks for the recipe!!
This looks amazing, can’t wait to try it! If using a glass pie pan, is it necessary to grease the pan?
Got any tips on how to slice it so perfectly? :)
Just made this, thought I would share a tip. Don’t forget to spray the pan! I thought I wouldn’t need any non stick spray with all the butter in the crust plus the fact that it doesn’t get baked… but I completely destroyed the pie trying to get it out… and I even used a springform pan where the side pop off.
Also my peanut butter filing never set up. It was in the fridge for 2 hours when we sliced it and the ganache topping just slid around and squished filling out the sides when I tried to slice the pie. Destroyed again lol.
Its in the freezer now. Hopefully that will help. Tastes great though! :)
Okay I just made this for the Super Bowl tomorrow. I want to dig in like NOW. Good stuff, and so easy! Thanks for the recipe!
I would like to make this for my L.I.F.E. Group. 30-35 people, how much of each ingredient would I need?
This tip hero video came in my newsfeed and I remembered Your post. They do not give you credit!! http://tiphero.com/peanut-butter-pie/
I don’t have a tart pan; is the crust sturdy enough to use a spring-form pan to make this??
This peanut butter pie is THE BEST!!! So easy and so, so good.
This pie is killer!!! My 11-year-old daughter put this together with minimal supervision (she just wanted me to watch the cream at the end) and it turned out amazing! We all had a slice that night… and the next night… and I honestly preferred the taste better on day 2.
Thanks for a beautiful, easy, delicious new favorite!
Oh my heavens. This. This is happening in my house this weekend! Yayyyyy!
Well I wish u to send sum more eggless recipes..
M fond of cooking..
I just made it and it’s perfect. you forgot to say how easy it’s to make it :D. I used a silicon pan and it was easy to get it out. I used a little less butter and I put the chocolate with the heavy cream together until it was melted and smooth (I used chocolate , didn’t have chocolate chips), it was fine this way too. thanks for the recipe, definitely I’ll make it again.
Hello, I was wondering if this would hold up well and would be okay to make ahead ?
This looks SO good!!!
Quick question. I would like to make the peanut butter filling a little less creamy. More crumble-y like a reese cup. Do you have any suggestions?
Use less butter and more powdered sugar. I would start with no butter, just the recommended peanut butter and powdered sugar.
If it is too crumbly, add a little butter a little at a time until you get the right texture.
If that is not crumbly enough, add more powdered sugar until it is. Taste test it along the way to make sure it is not too sweet.
Hope this helps!
I just gave it some thought right now. And after weighing the pros and cons, I have decided I would like it to be my full time job to eat this pie all day every day. I’ll just need a few assistants to roll me from place to place after a while on this job, k?
Just looking at this… this isn’t even fair… how can something LOOK this good? Look how thick that chocolate on top is… look at the Oreo crust, look at the peanut butter, I just… I can’t handle it. I need this now.
I just had this and it was AMAZING. Seriously, ridiculously hard to find a really good PB pie recipe that doesn’t have stupid cream cheese in it. This was a pleasant surprise for that. Also it was so so incredibly good.
should salted or unsalted butter be used?
should I use salted or unsalted butter?
This was unbelievably good! Everyone in my family loved it! We were all simultaneously sad and glad when someone devoured the last piece!
My sister-in-law made this for Thanksgiving! SO GOOD!!! I won’t admit to how many slices I had :-) I will be making this at my house very soon! Thanks for the recipe!
I don’t usually comment on recipes, but…I made this for Thanksgiving dinner, and it was amazing. AMAZING. Thanks for a recipe that my mother-in-law raved over. :) I can’t wait to try the salted caramel pie!
I HIGHLY recommend this! I made it for thanksgiving dessert! The only thing i would change is def make it in a 9×13 or square pan and cut into squares/bars. very rich so a pie piece is a little much at one time. I am making it again this weekend for a christmas party! :-) thanks for a yummy recipe!
What size is the tart pan that you used? Can this recipe be doubled and used in a 10″ glass pie plate?
I’m not an oreo fan… do you think using a different type of cookie or even a graham cracker crumb crust would be ok?
Nutter-Butter Cookies… That’s what we use and it’s delicious!
Can I use a regular store bought frozen pie crust that you baked for 10 minutes? Bake the crust, let it cool then do the rest of your steps?
I am in Virginia where we have Kroger grocery stores. The OREO clone Kroger carries was at one time called Kid-O’s. They still carry the cookies in three versions. The Oreo-like, another which is Chocolate/chocolate AND lastly a Chocolate wafer with Mint filling “Double Stuffed”. The mint version makes a good pie crust and might be a little too much for this pie, but these cookies rival the OREO brand and are usually on sale for about half to two-thirds of the brand-name price. I highly recommend these “cheaper” cookies for any and all pie recipes; can’t wait to make this one.
Can this be made dairy free?
The chocolate is OK but not the heavy cream. Is like to make but. ..with what different?
Ideas please :)
I’ve substituted coconut oil for butter in baked goods and made ganache with coconut milk. 1:1 substitutions, I think.
You can use SunButter, it is made with sunflower seeds in a peanut free facility.
I’m lactose intolerant, so I typically just substitute vegan butter, almond milk, etc. I’m curious about the whipping cream. I can’t eat that, and it’s the only thing I don’t know a proper substitute for. I’m guessing my (typically very thin) almond milk just won’t cut it. Any suggestions (that won’t require a trip to a specialty store)?
I, too, am lactose intolerant and have no problem with heavy whipping cream because it’s all milk fat, not milk sugar.
I sometimes substitute full fat (canned) coconut milk for heavy cream when making vegan recipes and it has always turned out well. You can see specific recipes if you search online for vegan ganache recipes.
You can get Lactose free whipping cream (natrel and dairyland make it but i’m sure other companies do too and it’s in the regular grocery store)… i use it all the time!
I was wondering if you can double the recipe to make in a 9×13?
This looks delicious! I don’t make a lot of pies as they are always so difficult and I always seem to mess them up, but this one soudns doable and it doens’t even have to bake. I love oreos, peanut butter and oreos, so this pie sounds delicious. Pinning it so I can make it soon!
I have one stick of margarine and one that is butter, any suggestions on which to use on which portion? Or maybe half and half for each?
I would use the margarine in the crust, and the butter with the peanut butter
NEVER use margarine…Margarine is so bad that bugs won’t even eat it..
If you want SUPER quick and easy, you can use one of the ready made chocolate crusts you get at the grocery store.
sorry i got it now i understand step 3 thank you cant wait to make this thank you for sharing
I just made this recipe. The step with the ganache: I barely heated the cream to a simmer, just until it was warm to the touch. poured it over the chips and PB. let it sit only ONE minute and started stirring. the whole thing melted and came together very quickly. poured it over the pie that was in the freezer (part two) for about 15-30 minutes tops, and spread it from edge to edge. covered it and popped it back into the freezer for 15 and then the fridge. I’ll serve it later tonight. looks deadly! :~D
i am in the middle of making this. i don’t understand one part. initially when making the crust, it gets put into the freezer for 10 minutes. then the filling goes in and then back into the freezer. but you never say for how long that step is in the freezer. you go on to make the ganache and then either into the fridge for an hour or freezer for 15-20, but what about how long to ‘freeze’ the filling?
i want to try this it looks so good not understanding how to do the last step lol can u explain it dont get the part about put it in a glass do i put all this together and put it in a pan on the stove thank you so much
put the 2 Tbsp of PB and the 1 cup of choc. chips, into a glass bowl. heat up the 1/2 cup of heavy cream on the stove to just about a simmer (little bubbles around the sides). then pour that cream over the PB/chips and let it sit for 3-5 minutes (the warm cream will melt the chips and pb), and then stir to combine. once that’s blended, pour it over the pie and either put it in the freezer again for 15-20 min. or put it in the fridge for an hour.
I’m originally from Ohio, and as most people know, Ohio is the Buckeye State; not just because of the State tree/nut, but also for the little pieces of candy heaven that are known as Buckeyes. Since your pie – as outlined above – is EXACTLY the same ingredients – – EXCEPT FOR THE OREO CRUST – that most recipes for Buckeyes contain, I will DEFINITELY be making this, but I’ll be calling it Buckeye Pie!!! LOL!!!
im a buckeye also :) thats what we were all calling it this weekend when i made it. I had also made buckeyes the same weekend.
I love Buckeyes and thought the same thing as I was eating the pie. The Oreo crust was a perfect addition to the delicious peanut butter/chocolate combination!
Wow, It looks Great!!!
It’s 3:10am. I’m awake because I had surgery a few weeks ago and I just can’t get comfortable. So I do a lot of blog reading in bed, in the dark lol. Instumbled across this and….
I ?? Peanut butter. It’s literally a favorite food of mine. But I’m always turned off by the “typical” peanut butter pies: with cream cheese, graham cracker crust and and they all look the same. And then k see this. I’m pretty sure I heard the angels singing lol. Honestly, if it weren’t for the fact that I don’t have any Oreos at the moment, I’d already be in the kitchen making this before attempting sleep again lol. I CANNOT wait to try this! Thank you for going outside of the box!
This sounds delicious! I will try it soon. WDE!!
This looks amazing!! One question: with that fluted edge tart pan you used, did you take slices out one at a time, or flip the whole thing out somehow at once? I’m a bit afraid to try a pan like that as I can see the pie falling to pieces as I try to dig the slices out lol!!
Hi Maggie! The great thing about a tart pan is that the sides are removable. It’s much easier to slice and remove pieces of pie from a tart pan than a standard pie pan. I set the bottom of the tart pan on top of an inverted drinking glass, and the sides pull down, leaving the pie on a plate with no sides. Here is a picture to give you an idea, although they set theirs on a bowl, and I just use a glass. :) Hope this helps!
Noms!!! A biscoff version would be incredible!
Oh Amanda, this looks so good! A definite hit – and the pictures are stunning!
For Heaven’s sake!!!! A peanut butter recipe without cream cheese!!! Thank you!!
Literally drooling and it’s not even 9am! Friendsgiving is this weekend and I’m all about make-ahead dishes. I haven’t decided on a dessert yet… until NOW!! Thanks, Amanda!
Oh, My. . . You don’t know how many times I’ve made your salted caramel oreo pie this past year–always impressive! Now you add this one? I don’t even want to KNOW how many calories are in a piece of this–sticking fingers in ears now. Looks fabulous–thank you! (I’d make it only if I had enough company to mostly finish it off–wouldn’t be safe otherwise. . .)
Hahahaha Debbie!!! :) Cut into slices and freeze, then just pull one out at a time when you’re feeling naughty!!! ;) It freezes great!! :)
Wow! This looks so good!!
Do you think this could be made with almond butter? It looks delicious!
i just made it with almond butter!
FINALLY NO CREAM CHEESE, NO Cool WHIP! This is SOOO much better! This is TRUE PB PIE
This looks like a giant peanut butter cup. I LOVE it!!!
I made this so many time for my children and co workers , its such a big hit with every one
