Easy Peanut Butter Pie

Do you have a friend who has given you a great recipe?  You will owe my friend Anna a big thanks for this one - it is her creation called Peanut Butter Pie.  I've had this recipe for about 27 years and it is one my favorite and go to recipes.

I haven't seen Anna in about 20 years though we still keep in touch as best we can at Christmas time.  Our husbands used to work together and then the company sent them both in different directions.  I'm in MN and she's in NC.  Our kids were the same ages and we really enjoyed our time together.  Anna had some great recipes but this is one of my favorites.  A chocolately, fudgey, PB frozen dessert that is perfect for any occasion!

I mean who doesn't love the combination of PB and chocolate?  This is so creamy and light that it melts in your mouth.

I've also been known to make it in individual servings and just using some oreo crumbs for a base.  And for some extra fudginess you might want to put some hot fudge sauce on the crust before the PB mixture - I'm just saying!  Anyway you decide, I'm sure it will be a great hit!

Yum, do you want a bite (or two?)

Like Chocolate?


  1. It looks so good and creamy! I love the peanuts as well, they add a nice touch of crunchiness!

  2. My oh my... does this look delicious. It doesn't help that it's still mid afternoon, and I've hit that hunger thing that we get right at this time!
    My son loves peanut butter of course I have to make this for him!
    LOVE this post!! Awesome recipe! :-)

  3. That would disappear in seconds in our house! : D

  4. Deb, I love recipes like this--passed on from dear friends--so whenever I eat them I remember all the fun times we had. And this pie looks to die for!

  5. There is NOTHING that I like better as a dessert than peanut butter pie and that is saying some! In fact I wrote
    a short short story about peanut butter pie. You know I should publish that on my website. This is a quickie recipe for one and it looks wonderful. The problem is when it comes to that pie I am indiscriminate. One would think it would be the opposite.

  6. Oooooo.... I LOVE peanut butter desserts! This is pretty close to the Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse pie my family loves- minus the chocolate mousse layer. ;) They would love this! Pinned and sharing.

  7. This pie looks amazing! I love a great peanut butter pie, and all that chocolate sauce on top looks divine. Pinning!

  8. LOVE!! There is no better flavor combo in my opinion!! :)

  9. YUM! I could eat this entire pie, Deb! I'd pay for it but it would be worth it. :)

  10. Perfect summer dessert! Besides your friend having a fabulous name, I think I like her taste in pie too ;) Pinned!

  11. This looks amazing Deb!! Pinned and featuring on SNF this Saturday :)

  12. This looks delicious! I would love for you share it on my Tasty Tuesday recipe link up here! Everything gets pinned and I would love to have you!

  13. This looks fan-freaking-tastic!! It seems like a Snickers bar in pie form - delicious!

  14. I almost hate to admit this, but I have never had peanut butter pie before - this has my mouth watering. Is it bad to want a slice for breakfast?

  15. Peanut butter pie is the best thing ever! This looks so good....yum!

  16. Sometimes the best recipes are the ones handed down from friends and family. Gorgeous pie!

  17. I just love how easy this is! Nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate!

  18. A "bite or two?" Try the whole thing! This looks amazing and so fun that it's from your longtime friend!

  19. This looks absolutely divine! And I'm so glad to hear that despite that it's been 20 years since you've seen your friend, you both still keep in touch. True friendship right there!

  20. I have to make this for my hubby. He love PB so much. It wouldn't last long in our house for sure!
