Shopping List for Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Pre-made Crust vs Traditional Crust
I like to use a pre-made pie crust using either a graham cracker crumb crust or an Oreo crumb crust. Both of these options are delicious and really simple to use.
Using a traditional crust takes a little more effort but also wonderful. Blind Bake crust before adding no-bake filling. A traditional crust helps tone down the sweetness of the pie.
It comes down to personal preference. Choose what you and your family will enjoy most. You can't go wrong with either of these choices.

Peanut Butter vs Chunky Peanut Butter
For this recipe I prefer using a smooth Peanut Butter which will make a creamy peanut butter filling. Natural peanut butter will also work. Make sure to stir the natural peanut butter before measuring for best consistency.
How to Garnish Pie
I love to garnish pie with a dollop of whipped topping and chopped mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups on top. You can also sprinkle dark Chocolate chips on top or sprinkle fine crumbs from the crust on top too. I also secretly love adding a drizzle of Chocolate Ganache.
Chocolate and peanut butter are an incredible flavor combination and adding them together in this cheesecake is mind blowing good! With a creamy peanut butter pie infused with chocolate, it really can’t get much better than that!
To make this pie even simpler use a store bought (or pre-made) graham cracker pie crust of choice. If you want to enhance the chocolate content by using an Oreo crust, go for it! Of course, chocolate peanut butter pie with graham cracker crust is good too.
This cheesecake cream pie would be amazing served at an holiday or dinner party (Thanksgiving pie anyone?)
Pi day is March 14th if you want an excuse to eat it even earlier in the year, but don’t think that you should have a reason to enjoy a pie.
No Bake Pie
Chocolate and Peanut Butter are a great combination. This No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie will make you come back for more. The creamy smooth texture is cheesecake like. It's delicious.
A cheesecake style pie, that whips up in just a few minutes and is a great addition to any meal.
Need a great dessert recipe but don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is a perfect go to recipe. I’ve taken this pie to the office for “Pi” day (March 14th) and it was a huge hit. I’ve also served this pie during the holidays and it’s one of my family favorites too.
Assuming you don’t eat it all in one shot, your pie can last up to 3 days in the fridge when it is well covered.
Absolutely! Freezing your pie is a great way to extend the shelf life! Just let it thaw overnight in the fridge before serving (or serve frozen).
Yes, they can be. The crust is a chocolate cookie crust. I have used a pre-made crust from the store.
No, you do however need a hand mixer to mix the first few ingredients. A hand mixer will make a smooth texture.
What is a No Bake Pie?
A No Bake Pie, is a pie that you do not need to bake to prepare. Typically made with whipped topping and or cream cheese to create a nice smooth texture.
If I don’t want chocolate can I make the entire pie Peanut Butter?
Sure! You can always make your own variations. In this case, you would want to add a little more peanut butter than the recipe calls for and omit the cocoa powder and mix all the ingredients in one bowl.
Can I layer my pie any way I wish?
You can make your pie and eat it too! Maybe you want to split the chocolate and put on both the bottom and top with a thick layer of peanut butter in the middle.
The combinations are endless. But be sure to take a picture and drop it in our comments. We would love to see them. 😉
Before serving, take pie out of the refrigerator for a few minutes and slice with a hot clean knife to get perfect cuts.
