- 9" Oreo pie crust or graham cracker crust
- peanut butter (smooth or chunky is fine)
- cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip
- powdered sugar
- milk (almond or dairy)
- Reese's peanut butter cups or shredded chocolate for garnish
- Hot fudge, optional
HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER PIE
Step 1- Get the pie crust and hot fudge ready
To save some tons of time making this easy peanut butter pie recipe, use a pre-made pie crust from the store.
For a richer taste, I recommend using an Oreo pie shell. A graham cracker pie crust is equally delicious and a little less rich.
To make this peanut butter cream pie extra good, pour about ¼ cup of hot fudge into the bottom of the pie crust.
Use this homemade hot fudge recipe using kitchen staples or store-bought hot fudge.
This step is totally optional, but worth it.
Step 2- Make the peanut butter pie filling
Next, mix the cream cheese and peanut butter together using a hand or stand mixer until light and fluffy.
Slowly add the Cool Whip, powdered sugar, and milk. Mix gently until a light and fluffy peanut butter mousse forms.
Pour this mixture into the pie crust. Place the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. The longer the better.
Step 3- Garnish & Eat
When you are ready to serve the Reese's peanut butter pie, sprinkle chopped up Reese's candy bars on top and drizzle with more hot fudge.
TOPPING FOR PEANUT BUTTER PIE
Try serving strawberries, bananas or raspberries along side this best peanut butter pie for another great topping!
If you don't have Reese's peanut butter cups handy, you can also grate a chocolate bar or chocolate chips to give the pie a fancier look. ust before serving this chocolate peanut butter pie, shred a chocolate bar or chocolate chips on top to give it a fancy look to it.
Top with additional whip cream if desired.
