Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Like a massive peanut butter cup from heaven.
Texture: The crust is crunchy yet buttery, the peanut butter filling is ultra light, fluffy, and luscious, and the candy on top takes it to a whole other level. Every bite is bliss.
Ease: Super duper easy!! You’ll get a few dishes dirty and need some patience for the pie to set but this is a great easy go-to dessert recipe.
Appearance: It’s everything a girl could want in a pie!
Pros: Easy, crowd-pleasing, and can be made ahead of time.
Cons: None!
Would I make this again? 100% yes.

To me, peanut butter is one of the great pleasures of life. I’m OBSESSED with the stuff.

Especially when it’s combined with chocolate… in PIE form. Life doesn’t get much better than a Peanut Butter Pie.

This isn’t any old peanut butter pie. I mean, just look at it. It’s over the top, messy, and unapologetically sinful in the best possible way.

I’ve accompanied this recipe with a step-by-step video to not only show you how to make this beautiful pie, but to whet your appetite for it. Because the chocolate + peanut butter flavors truly belong together.

This easy peanut butter pie recipe is that it is a total crowd pleaser and won’t last long at all. That coupled with the fact that it can be made completely ahead of time makes it a perfect go-to recipe for easy entertaining. Everyone will want seconds of this pie. It’s that good!

How to Make Easy Peanut Butter Pie

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Pie Filling:

  • Cream cheese – make sure to use a regular full-fat cream cheese brick!
  • Powdered sugar
  • Peanut butter
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Vanilla extract

Peanut Butter Pie CRUST Variations!

This recipe calls for a chocolate graham cracker crust, but you could also use:

  • Chocolate Teddy Grahams or chocolate wafer cookies (use the same amount by weight for best results, you should have about 1 3/4 cups crumbs total)
  • Oreo crust (follow the crust ingredients & instructions in this recipe)
  • Regular graham crackers (follow the crust instructions in this recipe)
  • Best Ever Pie Crust

How to Make Peanut Butter Pie WITHOUT Cool Whip

My favorite part about this pie recipe is that it’s homemade! We make the filling with a mixture of peanut butter (of course!), cream cheese, heavy cream, and powdered sugar. Whipping the cream then folding it in with the other beaten ingredients gives this pie a light, creamy, yet rich texture without any Cool Whip.

What kind of peanut butter is best for pie?

Use conventional creamy peanut butter for this recipe, such as Skippy or Jif.

Any kind of “natural” peanut butter that doesn’t include an added oil to stabilize the mixture will result in a pie filling that will become oily and separated. If you must use natural peanut butter, make sure it’s extremely well stirred and smooth before using.

How much melted chocolate + peanut butter for topping?

This is entirely up to you and your taste preferences! Simply melt the peanut butter and chocolate in your microwave and drizzle as much as you’d like over your pie.

How Long is Peanut Butter Pie Good For?

You can actually serve the finished pie frozen or refrigerated, just depending on which texture you prefer. Or how hot it is outside! Store covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.

How to Freeze Peanut Butter Pie:

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Peanut Butter Pie

Yield: 8 to 10 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Chilling Time 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 32 minutes
This homemade Peanut Butter Pie is made from scratch with just a few ingredients and will have everyone coming back for seconds! It's CRAZY good! With step-by-step video.

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 14 whole chocolate graham crackers (196 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 7 tablespoons (99 grams) unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 8 ounces (227 grams) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (94 grams) powdered sugar plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 1 cup (270 grams) creamy conventional peanut butter
  • 1 cup (240 grams) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the topping:

  • Melted peanut butter
  • Melted chocolate
  • Mini Reese’s cups
  • Peanut butter chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.

For the crust:

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, process the crackers and sugar until finely ground. Add the butter and pulse until moistened. Use the bottom of a measuring cup, glass, or ramekin to press the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake until fragrant, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

For the filling:

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and the peanut butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer with the whisk attachment to whip the heavy cream until thick and light. Add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and the vanilla extract and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.

  3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Pour into the prepared pie shell and freeze for 3 hours or chill in the fridge at least 6 hours.

  4. Place your melted peanut butter and melted chocolate in separate resealable bags or piping bags. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag's tip. Squeeze slightly to drizzle the melted peanut butter and melted chocolate over your pie. Top with mini Reese's cups and peanut butter chips. Serve frozen or refrigerated.

  5. Store in the fridge, covered, for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

    Perfection! This peanut butter pie is so creamy and delicious I will definitely be making it again and again! I couldn’t find chocolate graham crackers so I made the Oreo crust and it was very tasty! Love how easy the recipe was to follow and all the tips offered!

    My mother is very icky about her peanut butter pies. She loves them, but only when they are light and fluffy, so I’ve been searching for a good recipe to make her happy. Low and behold, a monthly challenge for peanut butter pie appears for her birthday month. Kismet. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to put together, and the taste (for me) was so much better because of the lack of Cool Whip which every other recipe I’ve found so far has. Don’t get me wrong. Cool Whip is fine. But homemade whipped cream is just so much better! I loved this recipe will definitely be making it again.

    • #
      Emily — April 26, 2022 at 7:07 am

      Aw yay! I’m so happy to hear that you both loved this recipe! And yes, 100% agree that homemade whipped cream is so much butter! 🙂

    This was super easy to put together and the result was soo good! I didn’t have chocolate graham crackers but I had some regular graham crackers, so I just pulsed with some cocoa powder and it came out great. It was also a nice way to use up my leftover peanut butter chips

    Super easy and decadent! I used chunky peanut butter and I love the change in texture. I will say that it’s crazy rich, so I may not add as many toppings next time.

    Erica Albert — April 12, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    I made 2 of the pies for my husbands birthday and one is in the freezer for another event coming. We are it from fridge, but I wondering if most people prefer it frozen or not. We couldn’t find chocolate graham crackers so we used dark chocolate cream Oreos. It was a hit. Everyone loved it. I added Reese’s pieces to the top!!! Pie is light and fluffy to the candy on top doesn’t make it too sweet.

    • #
      Emily — April 13, 2022 at 7:54 am

      Hi Erica! So happy everyone enjoyed this recipe 🙂 It’s honestly about half and half as to if people prefer frozen vs. refrigerated! I highly recommend trying it at least once, especially in the hotter months it’s a great cold dessert to enjoy!

  33. #
    Paul H — April 12, 2022 at 12:59 pm

    Excellent peanut butter pie recipe. Very easy. I used chocolate wafers instead of the graham crackers. I’m not sure it makes much of a difference, but I love the chocolate wafer crusts. Oreos would be worth trying too.

    I didn’t plan on topping with candy or peanut butter chips. I thought it would be too much, but I think it can take a little of it.

    • #
      Emily — April 13, 2022 at 7:50 am

      Great substitution!

  34. #
    Ashley — April 12, 2022 at 6:46 am

    Delicious! So rich and peanut buttery! The filling is so smooth and creamy. We added a layer of chocolate ganache on the top. There is some crazy shortage of chocolate Graham crackers here in the DC area, so we used Oreos (scraped off the filling) instead. Turned out great! Thanks for another great recipe!

    • #
      Emily — April 12, 2022 at 9:27 am

      I unfortunately think there’s a shortage everywhere, it’s been difficult for us on the HTH team to find them as well! Glad you used the Oreo crust recipe instead and loved it!

  35. #
    Amanda Bouchard — April 11, 2022 at 3:34 pm

    Wonderful! The texture is surprisingly light for how rich this ends up being.

  36. #
    Melissa Cook — April 11, 2022 at 1:44 pm

    Oh! My! GOODNESS!!! This pie is amazing! It comes together so quickly! The flavor combinations are super versatile. I chose to do a traditional all-butter pie crust. I was not sure how sweet the filling would be so I opted for a more “savory” crust versus using cookies or graham crackers. The filling is so rich and creamy. The balance between the peanut butter and the cream cheese is on point. This pie was loved by all! I look forward to making this again!!

She goes a step further and addresses in detail any questions that may pop up as you’re combining your ingredients! This recipe is a keeper! I went with the fridge chilling option, and my best friend and her boyfriend loved it!

    Loved this! I added mini mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, Reese’s pieces, peanut chocolate chips, and nestle roll house peanut butter caramel morsels to the top, regretting not adding peanut m&ms but I love how beautiful it turned out! First time having PB pie too (oh and made an Oreo pie crust instead out of Peanut Butter Pie Oreos [can’t believe they have those] because I figured why not) sorry for the long comment

    • #
      Emily — April 8, 2022 at 8:44 am

  55. #
    CE — April 7, 2022 at 1:37 pm

    Can this be made into cupcakes? Would the baking of the crust be different?

    • #
      Emily — April 7, 2022 at 4:23 pm

      We haven’t tried that, but I’d imagine this recipe could be made into mini “cupcake” peanut butter pies! As we haven’t experimented with it, you’ll want to follow the sensory indications of the recipe over the baking time of the crust, baking until your mini crusts are fragrant. Please let us know how it goes!

      • #
        CE — April 11, 2022 at 5:16 am

        I made this in cupcake form. Looks fantastic. I baked for 10 minutes, should have been closer to 8. Not burned, but a bit too dry. It made 18, as I did not want to overfill, and wanted the toppings to stay on. Melted peanut butter went on great, had to pipe the chocolate due to the mini size.

        Cannot figure out how to add a picture.

    I’m not sure what this is- a mouse, pie, or cheesecake type dessert. Either way, it’s delicious! If you’re a peanut butter lover, you will definitely love this recipe. It was very simple to make.
    I could not find chocolate graham crackers (or chocolate teddy grahams or anything similar). I could have used oreo, but I opted to use graham crackers + sugar + cocoa instead. It worked out just fine.

    Wow, this is the perfect recipe. I’m not super crazy about peanut butter, but the mix of it and cream cheese is perfect. It was so easy to make. My husband loved it. The only thing I did different was I added a few chocolate chips to the top. If you haven’t tried this, you need to.
