No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

This easy no bake peanut butter pie has an Oreo crust with a creamy peanut butter filling made WITHOUT cream cheese, a silky chocolate ganache, and chopped Reese’s.

Peanut butter and chocolate is one of my favorite combos of all time and this peanut butter pie is a total show stopper! We love making Homemade No Bake Reese’s but there is something so special about this peanut butter pie.

This pie is incredibly rich, so rich that all my kids left a few bites of their slices which was pretty shocking. So just note that a little bit of pie really will go a long way. This pie can easily serve 12 because of that.

Ingredients you need:

  • Peanut butter
  • Butter
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Whipped Cream or Cool Whip
  • Whipping Cream
  • Chocolate chips
  • Reese’s peanut butter cups

I used the full Reese’s peanut butter cups but you could also use the mini cups or even leave them off completely. The pie is still amazing without them.

How To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Pie:

  1. Use a food processor and process the Oreo cookies until they are crumbs. Add melted butter and process again so the butter is all incorporated. Press crumbs into a pie pan.
  2. In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, beat the peanut butter, butter and powdered sugar together until well combined.
  3. Add cool whip or whipped cream and beat again until fully combined. Pour into the prepared Oreo rust.
  4. Pour chocolate chips in a large heat proof bowl.
  5. Heat the 1/2 cup whipping cream in a sauce pan until it comes to a simmer
  6. Pour the whipping cream over the chocolate chips in the bowl and allow to sit for 4-5 minutes. Stir until the chocolate chips and whipping cream become one smooth mixture
  7. Pour over the pie and top with chopped Reese’s. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tips and Tricks

You can use homemade whipped cream instead of using Cool whip in the peanut butter filling.

You cannot replace the heavy whipping cream used for the chocolate ganache on top.

Can this pie be frozen?

You can make the pie ahead and freeze it to eat later by covering the pie really well with plastic wrap. To thaw, place in the fridge overnight still covered.

  1. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I’m sick of finding recipes that have cream cheese. I was SO relieved to see that this doesn’t have it. Seriously, you have no clue.
