Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
Try to resist an easy, no bake, ultra creamy peanut butter pie covered with a thick layer of chocolate ganache, and topped with salty sweet Reese's peanut butter cups.
no bake pie crust (9 inches)
(see recipe notes)
creamy peanut butter
milk or heavy cream
Cool Whip whipped topping,
semi-sweet chocolate chips
(optional) chopped Reese's peanut butter cups,
In a large bowl use a hand mixer to beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
Fold in whipped topping until smoothly combined. Spread the peanut butter filling into the pie shell. Refrigerate while you prepare the chocolate ganache.
For the chocolate topping, in a small pan bring the heavy cream to a slight simmer. Remove from the heat and pour in chocolate chips. Let it sit for 5 minutes, and then stir until smooth.
Spread chocolate over the peanut butter pie filling and immediately top with chopped Reese's peanut butter cups.
Refrigerate 4-6 hours, or overnight. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Can I add more chocolate?
Fold mini chocolate chips in the peanut butter cream filling before spreading in the pie crust.
Use a no bake
for the pie shell.
Spread a layer of this easy
on the pie crust before filling. (You can also use this for the topping instead of ganache.)
Sprinkle chocolate chips or chopped Reese's peanut butter cups on the crust before topping with the peanut butter pie filling.

Can I use natural peanut butter?
No. For best results avoid using natural peanut butter because it won't blend as smoothly with the cream cheese. You may, however, use smooth or crunchy peanut butter.
Are Reese's peanut butter cups gluten free?
Yes. Any wrapped Reese's peanut butter cups, regular size or minis, are gluten free. Seasonal shaped ones or the kind that come unwrapped in a bag are
gluten free, though.
Can I freeze this pie?
Yes. Chocolate peanut butter pie may be frozen, tightly covered, up to 3 months.
You can even eat this pie frozen!
