PIN IT NOW TO SAVE FOR LATER 

So I have a slight bone to pick with the makers of Twix. Where did the (regular) Peanut Butter Twix go? WHERE? I swear they used to exist.

Growing up my mom loved the Caramel Twix. I always, always wanted the peanut butter ones. They didn’t show up often but when they did? Oh my. I’d eat off the peanut butter and then eat the shortbread cookie. (Are you surprised?)

Now? Now they only make PB Twix with a chocolate cookie. I’m sorry, as much as I love chocolate and peanut butter that is not a Peanut Butter Twix. A Peanut Butter Twix has a shortbread cookie, a peanut butter layer, and is covered in chocolate.

That’s why I made this Twix pie – to remember that old candy bar I used to love.

Peanut Butter Twix Pie is perfect for anytime you feel like a peanut butter pie!

This pie is unbelievable. I’ve made a lot of pies and it’s my favorite one ever!

What is a Twix Pie?

A Twix pie is a recipe that reminds me of the candy bar! It has three layers:

  • Shortbread Crust
  • Peanut Butter filling
  • Chocolate topping

How do you make a shortbread crust?

The crust is made from shortbread cookies. The crumbs get mixed with melted butter and pressed into a 9″ pie plate. No-bake Shortbread Crust is perfect with lots of pie filling and a nice change from graham cracker crust.

What is a no bake peanut butter filling?

The filling is a a no bake peanut butter cheesecake made of cream cheese, sugar, whipped topping, and peanut butter. It’s rich and fluffy and SO creamy.

I used low-fat cream cheese (as I usually do), Cool Whip Free (the fat-free kind), and Skippy Naturals Peanut Butter. You can use your favorites: regular cream cheese, sugar-free, regular, or Cool Whip Lite, or a regular peanut butter.

Make a simple chocolate topping by mixing melted chocolate with Cool Whip!

PRO TIP

The hardest part about making this pie is waiting the at least 4 hours before you cut it. It’s worth the wait, believe me. This pie is silky smooth, rich, and it tastes like a Peanut Butter Twix.

Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Yield 10 servings
Serving Size 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of shortbread cookie crumbs like Lorna Doone, about 30 cookies
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese room temperature (or you can use regular)
  • 1 cup peanut butter I use Skippy Naturals, you can also use regular. If using reduced fat, you may need to lower the amount of sugar.
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 containers 8 ounces each Cool Whip (fat-free, regular, or sugar-free)

Instructions

  • Stir cookie crumbs and melted butter with a fork. Press into a 9” pie plate. Chill until ready to fill.
  • Beat cream cheese until smooth with a hand mixer. Mix in peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Fold in 1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip. It will require some stirring, but stir carefully. Some lumps will remain. Spread filling into pie crust.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring between each. They should melt and be smooth in about a minute. Stir in 1 cup (about half of the remaining tub) of Cool Whip. Spread over top of pie.
  • Chill pie overnight (or at least 4 hours) before serving. Serve alone, or with more Cool Whip for garnish.

  1. Help, maybe…I just made this Twix pie recipe and noticed that my chocolate topping looks lighter than your photo. Does it darken with the chilling? I used 4 oz. of the whipped topping because you said about half of the other 8 oz. tub, so no-brainer there, but did I just use too much in relation to the chocolate? (I used the exact amount for the chocolate and whipped topping, using a food scale). Thanks! I’m curious what I did that made it so much lighter than yours! 🙂

    1. I don’t think mind darkened as it cooled, but as long as it tastes good it shouldn’t be a problem. Different brands and types of chocolates might produce different colors. I used a Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate bar (the kind from the baking aisle, with ounces). Did you maybe use a milk chocolate? Or a different brand?

      1. I used nestle semisweet mini chips. We’ll see how it turns out. Thanks for the reply!

      2. That’s probably the difference in color. The taste shouldn’t be a problem! 🙂 Enjoy!

      3. I didn’t realize there’d be that much difference between brands. The pie was delicious!

      4. I had a MUCH light topping too, followed directions exactly with the exception of variety of chocolate as I only had milk chocolate on hand? I do think the type of chocolate would make a big difference, the darker more semi-sweet the better in this matter. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I only remember the peanut butter Twix with the chocolate cookie, and I almost always grab when on the rare occasion I see them in the store. This pie sounds fantastic. I can’t wait to give it a shot.

  3. This is SO my kind of pie! And the fact that it’s no bake means it’ll be great all Summer too 🙂

  4. I’m totally drooling all over my laptop – this pie looks incredible Dorothy!
    I pinned it to my PIE board 🙂 Happy Belated PiDay.

  5. I couldn’t get my act together this year to make a pie for Pi Day but I love seeing all of the creations. This one is totally a winner. Loving the No Bake Peanut butter.

  6. This looks incredible Dorothy, you make the absolute best pies and this one is perfect for Pi Day! I love Twix and yes to all things peanut butter – I can definitely see why this could be your favorite pie – it is amazing! Pinning 🙂

  7. You tell those Twix makers what’s up! I do also happen to agree with you. The layers should go just like they do in this delicious looking pie!

    Where was I on Pi day? Seriously, I should have been all over this faux-holiday since I have a BA in Math!

  8. Dorothy, you are just the cutest lady ever. I love it when your smart nerdy side combines with your baking — the pie results are ALWAYS incredible! You know, you could probably offer to do a sponsored post for Twix… And then mention how much you love and miss their classic PB Twix… And see if they’d start making them again! With how awesome you are, they’d totally do it. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you do for next year’s epic Pi Day too!!
