This completely No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie has an Oreo crust, a chocolate ganache layer topped with a creamy peanut butter layer, then peanut butter cups and more chocolate ganache to finish it off!
If I had to choose my favorite flavor combination with chocolate it would be, without a doubt, chocolate and peanut butter. No brainer. Sure, I love chocolate and coconut, chocolate and caramel, and I’ll even be weird every once in awhile and obsess over chocolate and citrus. But nothing compares to my love for chocolate and peanut butter.
This Peanut Butter Pie is pretty much everything my peanut butter and chocolate dreams are made of. I mean – just look at it! I could eat a piece of this every night and be a happy girl. Sad story, though – I got the stomach flu the day I made this pie. So I got a few bites of this 4.2743 seconds after taking photos, before heading out the door for Home Depot. After which we returned home and I spent the next 20 hours either in bed or with my head in the toilet. It was awful.
Buuuut moving on from stomach flu talk!
THIS PIE. It starts with a crust that is made of crushed Oreos and peanut butter cups. Yep, I put peanut butter cups in the crust. And the best part of it – it’s a no-bake crust making this entire pie oven-free.
After the crust, there’s a healthy layer of chocolate ganache on top of the crust. When I say healthy I mean it’s a substantial layer. It’s not low calorie, Paleo, Whole-30 approved, or good for the waistline in any manner. Just so we’re clear.
Then there’s that peanut butter cream cheese filling! I would have eaten it all with a spoon if I could have. The filling is a no-bake cream cheese filling that is somehow rich and peanut butter-y while still feeling light and fluffy.
For good measure I chopped up more peanut butter cups and tossed them on top, along with a healthy drizzle of chocolate ganache because why the heck not? If we’re gonna eat pie, let’s EAT PIE.
This Peanut Butter Cup Pie is the perfect dessert to cap off a meal. Whether it’s a dinner party with friends, date night in with your sweetie (Valentine’s Day?!), or a fun alternative to a birthday cake – this pie will not disappoint!
