Oreo Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with a heavenly dessert that combines the irresistible flavors of peanut butter, chocolate, and Oreos!
Chocolate and peanut butter is a flavor combination that just can’t be beat.
I can’t get enough of it myself… recipes like my Reese’s peanut butter pie and peanut butter caramel icebox cake are on rotation whenever I have people over.
This no-bake peanut butter dessert delight features a velvety smooth peanut butter filling studded with rich chocolate chips, all nestled on top of a crunchy Oreo crust.
Best of all, it’s so easy to make. After you’ve added the filling to the Oreo pie crust, all that’s left to do is have a little patience as it chills!
Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Oreo Cookies – To make the homemade Oreo pie crust! You can also use a store-bought crust here if you want to save a bit of time.
That said… homemade always tastes better!
- Salted Butter – You’ll need this in the crust if you want to make it yourself, as well as in the creamy filling. I like using salted over unsalted as it adds more flavor.
- Creamy Peanut Butter – I like using creamy for this recipe. If you like the idea of crushed up peanuts in the filling, you can also use crunchy PB instead.
- Chocolate Chips – I’m using semi-sweet, but you can certainly use dark chocolate chips if you’d like.
- Heavy Cream – Half and half or whole milk will work in a pinch, but do not try to use low fat options. It affects the texture — not in a good way.
- Toppings – Add a healthy helping of whipped cream, caramel sauce, and crushed peanuts to the top of your no bake peanut butter pie!
You could also add uncrushed Oreos. YUM!!
Tips and Tricks for Perfecting Your Oreo Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
- Take your time with the crust.
I can’t say enough good things about making the Oreo pie crust yourself!
When preparing it, take care to crush the cookies finely and mix them thoroughly with melted butter.
Press the mixture firmly and evenly into the pie dish, ensuring a sturdy base that holds together when slicing.
A well-executed crust sets the stage for a fantastic peanut butter pie!
- Chill the pie thoroughly.
This is a no bake peanut butter dessert, so no need to stress about baking temps or times. That said, the chilling step is crucial!
Make sure to refrigerate it for at least 1 hour… overnight is even better! This will allow the filling to set and the flavors to meld together, resulting in a firm and delicious pie.
- Get creative with the toppings.
While the chocolate peanut butter pie itself is delightful, consider adding some creative toppings to enhance its presentation and taste.
Sprinkle crushed peanuts or additional chocolate chips on top, drizzle with chocolate or caramel syrup, or add a dollop of whipped cream.
These extra touches will take your pie to the next level!!
Storing and Freezing No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
Store this no bake peanut butter dessert in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator. It will keep for 3-5 days.
To freeze your peanut butter creation, make sure that it is completely set before wrapping it tightly in a few layers of plastic wrap and aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn. It will be good for up to 3 months.
Let it thaw in the fridge overnight before digging in.
Kitchen Tools You’ll Need

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie FAQ
You can, but keep in mind that it will change the overall flavor and texture of this dessert — it won’t be a chocolate peanut butter pie anymore, after all!
I recommend trying almond or cashew butter if you really want to switch things up.
You sure can! That’s one of the great advantages of a no-bake pie. You can prepare it ahead of time, refrigerate it, and serve it when ready.
I love a bite-sized dessert, so the answer here is a resounding YES! Use small tart pans, ramekins, or even muffin tins instead of a pie dish.
It’s a fun and convenient way to portion out the dessert for individual enjoyment or serving at parties!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
