We are back on the peanut butter desserts because I can’t ever get enough. This time it’s a rich and creamy peanut butter chocolate chip pie because, as we all know, chocolate and peanut butter are the best of friends.

Why We Love This Peanut Butter Pie

It’s a no-bake pie otherwise known as a no-heating-up-the-house pie. During the summer, this is the best!

The easy version of this pie includes making an easy no-bake crust and making the filling with homemade whipped cream. And then there is the really easy version which includes buying a premade crust and using Cool Whip for the filling. Both versions work. Both are amazing.

You also have choices! I love a dessert that can be easily switched up, and this is a great one for that. Switch out the crust and try some other mix-ins. I’m sharing my best tips so you can make it your own.

Ingredients

  • Crust: See the tips section for links, but I love using my Chocolate chip cookie crust for this recipe!
  • Cream Cheese: Be sure to let it come to room temperature to avoid lumps.
  • Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter, a traditional no-stir, is what I used.
  • Powdered Sugar: To sweeten the filling
  • Vanilla extract: For flavor
  • Heavy Whipping Cream: To make the whipped cream for the filling you need to use cold heavy whipping cream
  • Mini chocolate chips: you can substitute regular

How to Make Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie

1. Make the crust and chill it. If you use a store-bought crust, you can skip this step!

2. Make the Filling: Combine the cream cheese and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. Mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla.

3. Make Whipped Cream: In a separate bowl, beat the cream at high speed until stiff peaks form. 

4. FOLD: Spoon the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Gently fold it in to combine. Do this slowly (and don’t stir) so you don’t deflate the whipped cream.

5. Assemble: Stir in the chocolate chips and then spread the filling in the crust. Chill the pie for at least one hour before serving it.

Recipe Tips

  • Try a Different Crust: This recipe works with other crusts, too! Try a graham cracker, shortbread, Nutter Butter, or Oreo crust. You can also use a prepared crust from the store.
  • Filling Tip: For the best filling, use no-stir peanut butter. Creamy peanut butter is great, but you can use chunky peanut butter, too.
  • Whipped Cream: To make it easier, use Cool Whip instead of homemade whipped cream. 
  • Mix-ins: You can use regular chocolate chips or try chopped candy like chopped chocolate candies or candy bars. I’ve also use nuts as a mix-in, and they’re great, too!
  • Storage: The pie will keep for up to four days in the refrigerator. If you want to freeze the pie, use Cool Whip instead of whipped cream in the filling.

You will not be disappointed when you slice into this cold and creamy chocolate chip cheesecake pie. You might also have trouble stopping after just one slice – I know I do! The combination of the creamy filling with the crunchy cookie crust is about the best thing ever. And the peanut butter and chocolate combo? No one can resist it. Enjoy!
