FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

If you want to save yourself some time you can use a premade crust if you’d like.

You could also use a chocolate graham cracker crust or even a regular graham cracker crust as well.

While we prefer the silky smoothness of this pie from the creamy peanut butter, if you want to add a little bit more texture to this Peanut Butter Pie you can use chunky.

This will not affect the amount of the pie at all, it will just give a little added crunch to the filling.

This needs to sit and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to get the consistency that we are looking for but can sit overnight as well.

This is what makes this a great make-ahead recipe is that since it already has to sit to set up you can make this in advance for any gathering or get together that you are doing.

If you want to use a store-bought crust, go ahead. I think this delicious dessert calls for the real thing, though.

  • Chocolate drizzle: Top the pie with a rich chocolate sauce for added decadence.
  • Reese’s pieces: Sprinkle on top for a colorful, crunchy texture, or even peanut butter cups!
  • Homemade whipped cream: Add a dollop on each slice for a creamy touch.
  • Chocolate shavings: Garnish the pie for a sophisticated chocolatey flair.
  • Layer of fudge: Include between the crust and filling for a surprise chocolate layer.
  • Chopped peanuts: Sprinkle on top for extra crunch and nutty flavor.
  • Caramel sauce: Drizzle over the top for a sweet and sticky finish.
  • Oreo cookie pieces: Scatter on top for added cookie texture.
  • Banana slices: Layer on the crust before adding filling for a banana peanut butter variation.
  • Mini chocolate chips: Mix into the filling for extra chocolate bursts throughout the pie.

You could use chocolate graham crackers for the crust. Don’t worry, the whole family will love this!

  • Store-bought pie crusts: Use a ready-made graham cracker crust or chocolate cookie crust for convenience.
  • Cool Whip: Substitute for homemade whipped cream if short on time or prefer a lighter texture.
  • Almond butter or cashew butter: Use instead of peanut butter for a different nut flavor or for those with peanut allergies.
  • Vegan cream cheese and coconut cream: Replace dairy products to cater to vegan preferences.
  • Gluten-free Oreos: Use for a gluten-free crust option, if a family member with special diet needs wants a sweet treat.
  • Sugar-free powdered sugar: Opt for a sugar-free version to reduce the sweetness or accommodate a low-sugar diet.

HOW TO STORE:

You can store this No Bake Peanut Butter Pie in the refrigerator covered where it will keep for up to 4 days.

No bake desserts typically freeze well. Cover with plastic wrap and then foil and place in the freezer and it will keep for up to 3 months.

You can eat this from frozen (I love the chocolate crust when it’s frozen), or remove it to the refrigerator and let it defrost overnight.

  • If you find it tricky to get the crust out of the pan, dip it in some warm water.
