Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Pie


December 14, 2023

It is a known fact that I don’t like baking. I think for me you have to play by too many rules when baking. You have to get the ingredients just right. You can’t easily sub things in and out. So I stick to cooking where there is room for creativity!

This pie is an easy favorite for my family. While there is no “baking involved,” I still like to serve is with the thought that I “baked” something.

So without further ado, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Pie by Amy Nelson Hannon is THE BEST!


2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs

8 T (1 Stick) unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

4 oz (half of an 8 oz package) cream cheese at room temp

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 t vanilla extract

1 (8oz) carton Cool Whip, thawed

1 to 2 cups chopped chocolate peanut butter cups

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup milk chocolate chips

2 tablespoons coconut oil

In a small bow, combine the cookie crumbs and melted butter with a fork until the crumbs are moist. Pour the crumbs into a 9 inch pie plate and press into the bottom and up the sides. Refrigerate the crumb crust while you prepare the filling so it firms up a little.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the peanut butter filling into the chilled crumb crust. Cover the top with the chopped peanut butter cups.

In a small microwaveable bowl or glass measuring cup, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil for 20 seconds at a time until smooth, stirring between each interval. Using a small spoon drizzle the melted chocolate all over the top of the pie. Chill for at least one hour before serving.
