Peanut Butter Pie

Giant delicious death....I mean, Peanut Butter Pie!
Do as I say, not as I do. I poured the chocolate layer
on too quickly. It blooped over the side.

Once upon time, my sister in law made this pie, brought it to a family gathering, and I think everyone dog piled on it after we realized how truly delightful it is.

It's a giant reese's peanut butter cup essentially.


I have a mini food attack every time I make this.

It's almost too easy to in too tempting at all times.

I don't even, have some directions on how to make this wonderful pie.

  • 1 premade oreo crust
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 pint of heavy whipping cream
  • 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate (Baker's chocolate squares works great for this)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  1. In a mixing bowl, beat peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
  2. In a different bowl, with really clean beaters (mixers, whatever you want to call them (STIRRING UTENSIL)), whip 1 cup of whipping cream into whipped cream.
  3. Fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture until well combined.
  4. Spoon into the premade oreo crust. Chill until set (most likely an hour or so).
  5. Place chocolate and butter into a microwave proof bowl. Microwave in 15-30 second bursts until melted, stirring well in between. Once chocolate and butter have melted, stir in 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream. It should be a consistency of barbecue sauce (or close to it).
  6. Pour evenly over the pie. Let the chocolate settle on top; refrigeration is recommended.
  7. Try not to die from delight. :)
Afraid of fridge gremlins getting into the pie while it's chilling?
Flip the protective covering over that came with the premade
oreo crust. It's an awesome shield protector thing
and it fits perfectly!.
Happy cooking!


  1. Don't forget - you can top the pie with Reese's cups.

    1. I forgot to buy them so I just omitted them because it wouldn't match the pictures.
