Delicious Peanut Butter Pie
My husband loves all things peanut butter and chocolate. Ice cream, cookies, and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups are right up his alley. So when I needed to make a couple pies for a church event, this recipe for No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie caught my eye. I had never had peanut butter pie before, but my husband lit up when I mentioned the option, so that settled it. 🙂
You can find the original recipe comes from Jenn at www.motherthyme.com, so I won’t go into detail about the ingredients necessary here. I also used a homemade Oreo crust recipe from www.crazyforcrust.com. You should go check these recipes out!
The recipe was easy to make and super cheap. The ingredients for one pie crust cost me $1.50, and the ingredients for the filling cost less than $6.00. Well worth the deliciousness once it’s all put together! 🙂
I had some difficulty figuring out the crust at first. Throwing too many Oreos in the blender at once is counter-productive! I found that crushing five Oreos at a time worked pretty well. I was also a little nervous about how well the pie crust would stick together. It turned out fine, but the thought of it falling apart and becoming a great big mess at the church potluck did cross my mind!
The filling was incredibly easy. Just whip it together with an electric blender, and you’re good to go! I licked the spoon after it was said and done, and that’s when I figured out why my husband’s eyes lit up when I mentioned the pie. It was delicious! Finger-licking good!
I sprinkled peanut butter chips and chocolate chips on top of the filling when I was done, and drizzled the pie with chocolate syrup as a garnish.
I had some extra Oreos and pie filling left over after I finished the pies, so I made some mini-pies in a muffin tin as samples for my husband and myself. They turned out really cute, and they were just the right size!
Any other favorite peanut butter and chocolate recipes out there for me to try? I’d love to hear about them! 🙂
