Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

This easy pie recipe has only 5 ingredients and is super chocolatey. It’s no bake too, which I love. I think I prefer no-bake pies to baked ones, only because they’re so much easier to make.

I married my favorite chocolate cream pie with my favorite peanut butter pie to make this recipe. It’s SO easy and comes together in under 10 minutes, especially if you go the easy route and buy a crust, like I did.

When I’m in down mood or I’m tired or I have no motivation, I fallback on old standby recipes. These are recipes that I know will work, I know y’all will love, and are true to myself. Peanut butter, chocolate, and pie…can’t get any more true to Crazy for Crust than that.

In a word, comfort. This pie is comfort. Another word: dangerous for my diet.

5 Ingredient Pie Recipe

If you use a little semi-homemade help, this pie only has 4 main ingredients:

Chocolate Pudding: Use INSTANT chocolate pudding mix (a small box, about 3.4-3.9 ounces)

Milk: Nonfat or regular

Peanut Butter: No-stir peanut butter works best

Cool Whip: You can use regular, light, sugar-free, or any brand. Using whipped topping makes this SO easy. If you want to make this with fresh whipped cream you can do that also (3 cups).

Oreo Crust: Use my homemade one or buy one at the store.

Now, when you’re making a chocolate pie with peanut butter, you have a few options:

Then there is the crust! This pairs perfectly with an Oreo Crust – either from scratch or from the store, but it would also go with graham cracker or a Nutter Butter Crust! Or make it with a regular pie crust!

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

  1. Be sure to start with instant pudding. That whisks up easy! Just whisk the pudding with the milk.
  2. Whisking in the peanut butter takes time, so you can use a mixer if you want. It will be thick!
  3. Carefully fold in the Cool Whip slowly. It’ll seem like it’s never going to mix up but it will. Don’t mix too fast or it will become watery.

This pie is a fluffy and easy 5 ingredient chocolate pie full of peanut butter. There’s nothing wrong with that!

Can I use fresh whipped cream?

Yes you can. Beat 1 cup of cold heavy whipping cream with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar to make your whipped cream. Slowly fold in half into the pie mixture and use the remaining for the topping.

My pie didn’t set, what happened?

That often happens when you mix it too much and the cool whip/whipped cream breaks. Make sure to fold it slowly.

Can I use nonfat milk?

Yes, or whole milk.

  1. Making this for church tonight. Made a sample this week and it’s already gone. Thank you. Enjoy your weekend. God bless 💜🍇

  2. My aunt made this pie and I fell in love with not just the pie but how easy it is to make. (I’m challenged in cooking department. And that’s being nice)anyway I was making it tonight and my mom has once again decided to move things around. So I cannot find them and all I could find was banana pudding with the chocolate pudding. (My aunts recipe you mixed up pudding mixture. In sep bowl the peanut butter, powdered sugar and cream cheese) then she layered peanut butter mixture on bottom and pudding on top and then a thin layer of cool whip. But I like the idea of mixing the pudding and peanut butter and just having one mixture for pie. I’m crossing my fingers about the banana pudding, but I think chocolate goes good with banana doesn’t it? See just 10 min in kitchen and my brain is probably wherever my mom put the vanilla pudding. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I tried to ask Alexa but she said she could no longer enable me by giving me answers if it involved cooking. 🙄. 🤞🏻 On banana chocolate peanut butter pie.

  3. Husband loved this pie. I made it kind of by mistake (thinking it was a smaller version of one with cream cheese). I put in an 8” square pan & crust was too thick. Otherwise, it was good with sugar free pudding.

    I wonder if it would freeze ok. I saw another reviewer asked but didn’t get an answer. I know the cream cheese version gets runny after a few days but wouldn’t freeze well.

  4. This pie is absolutely delicious! We could have eaten the whole thing in one sitting. My husband declared it his favorite non-fruit pie. It was so simple to make. I substituted almond milk for the milk and used a homemade graham cracker crust.

  5. I made this tonight and followed the recipe exactly. It is very good. It has the perfect amount of chocolate and peanut butter. I didn’t use and candy just piped whipped cream.

    This is an easy pie to put together if you have unexpected guests.
