No Bake Peanut Butter Pie with Chocolate Graham Cracker Crust

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie- this NO BAKE pie is SUPER easy to make and one that will have everyone asking you for the recipe! │ bbritnell.com

For the first ~23 years of my life, I hated peanut butter. Or, I thought I hated peanut butter. I know, right!? What the heck was wrong with me? I’m not sure how I made it that long without eating it but ever since I discovered that I actually love it, I’ve had to make up for lost time.

Then, I discovered that it was super easy (and SO yummy) to make homemade peanut butter. My life hasn’t been the same since I made these marvelous culinary discoveries.

In other weather related news, it’s POURING in Nashville today. The storms started right as my alarm(s) went off which made getting out of bed basically impossible. I slumped around the house telling myself that I’d wait until the rain let up a bit. But, then I looked at the radar and realized it wasn’t going to stop raining until at least noon. O well, let’s eat some pie….

Peanut butter pie!!

This super easy pie is typically made with a store bought graham cracker crust. BUT, I decided to get fancy (I mean, as fancy as you can really be with a graham cracker crust) and make my own. When I ended up in the cookie aisle starring at the graham crackers, I couldn’t not get the chocolate ones. I just couldn’t. best. decision. ever!

The crust can be made in advance (the night before) or it can be made right before you need it. I used a food processor to crumb-ify the graham crackers.

Sixty seconds in the food processor and you’ve got the beginning of a delicious crust.

For the crust, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, a bit of sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl.

Once thoroughly combined, you’ll have a rather moist (but not sticky) mixture.

Pour the mixture into your pie pan, evenly distributing it across the pan, and press it all into the bottom and the sides of the pan. You really want it to be tightly packed into the dish so it sticks together well.

Bake for just a few minutes (7 to be exact), let it cool for a few minutes, and then stick it in the fridge while you prepare the peanut butter filling.

The filling comes together in NO time. Even if (when!) you make the peanut butter AND the whipped cream from scratch. My homemade peanut butter recipe is HERE and my homemade whipped cream recipe is HERE. DO IT!

Mix the peanut butter, confectioners sugar, and cream cheese in a medium bowl.

Then mix in the whipped cream and stir until well combined.

Now pour the peanut butter mixture into the graham cracker crust.

Spread the mixture out evenly and then put in the fridge for at least an hour. 2-3 hours if you have a bit more patience than I do. Overnight would even be okay.

You’ll end up with something like this:

YUM! I should have saved a piece of this to eat for while I was writing this post. Why do I torture myself like this!?

Anyways, I highly recommend topping this pie with 2 chopped up peanut butter cups and a few sprinkles of graham cracker crumbs. MORE peanut butter can only make this better.

  45. it says WHIPPED CREAM, but no where does it say to whip the whipping cream. so i can’t make this crap pie, because if i pour in the WHIPPING CREAM WITHOUT WHIPPING IT, is that right or do i spend time WHIPPING THE WHIPPING CREAM AND fold in the WHIPPED CREAM THEN. are you american and can’t spell because the cream in question is called WHIPPING CREAM!!!! it’s only called whipped cream AFTER it’s been whipped!!!!!!!! stupid people!

    • sorry for the confusion. I’ve always known whipped cream as already WHIPPED cream. WhippING cream is cream that has not yet been whipped. You can even buy whippED cream in the store in the frozen section which means that it’s already whipped. So, I think most people see whipped cream and know that it’s already whipped. But yes, if you having whippING cream, it needs to be whipped first.

      • the reason the recipe calls for whippED cream and not whippING cream is so that people have the option of making their own OR just using store bought (which is what I suspect a majority of the people do).

  46. Is the whipped cream that it calls for – cool whip?
