If you love peanut butter and chocolate, you will love this pie. It tastes like a frozen Reese’s peanut butter cup and is even shaped like one. Oh, and it’s super easy to make. There are only seven ingredients — three of which are peanut butter, chocolate and Cool Whip — and you don’t have to cook anything. Honestly, the hardest part of the whole recipe is waiting for it to freeze.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie
- Prep Time:20 minutes
- Cook Time:0 minutes
- Total Time:3 hours 20 minutes (3 hours to freeze)
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 12 oz Cool Whip
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pre-baked pie crust
Add 8 ounce cream cheese to a mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Spoon tip: A saucepan works if you don’t have a mixing bowl.
Add peanut butter, sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Fold in 8 ounce of Cool Whip until just mixed. (It’s okay if there are a few small clumps of Cool Whip.)
Fill pie crust with peanut butter, Cool Whip mixture.
Melt chocolate chips. Spoon tip: Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments until melted.
Add 4 ounces or 1 cup of Cool Whip to melted chocolate and mix well.
Spread chocolate and Cool Whip mixture over pie.
Place in freezer for at least 3 hours.
Remove from freezer and enjoy! Spoon tip: If the pie is too rich for you, add a dollop of Cool Whip to mellow the taste.
