chocolate peanut butter pie {recipe}


I know I say this every time but, seriously, this recipe is so simple. 
Clearly I only can cook things that require a tiny amount of time and patience. And basically no cooking skills. Oh well.

::  Ingredients  ::

 - 8 oz of cream cheese
 - 1/2 cup of peanut butter
 - 1 cup of milk
 - 1 pkg of Jello vanilla flavored instant pudding {3.4 oz box}
 - 2 1/2 cups of Cool Whip {one tub -ish}
 - 3 oz of semi-sweet baking chocolate
 - Oreo pie crust

Start by softening your cream cheese and mixing it with the peanut butter. 
And yes, this type of hardcore stirring is sure to give you Michelle Obama arms.
Now add in the milk, pudding mix, and 1 cup of Cool Whip. Mix again.

Spoon this into your pie crust and set aside.

Grab the baking chocolate and begin melting in the microwave. As it softens, add in the remaining Cool Whip until smooth and well blended. 

Allow the chocolate mixture to cool, then pour it over the peanut butter layer. 

Refrigerate for four hours. Then enjoy!


J.B. is pretty obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate. We might occasionally run out of milk or bread around here, but we definitely don't run out of the Target's Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream.
Needless to say, he loves this pie. 


  1. Hi Sarah, I tried your recipe for this pie, and I had a question. I used Baker's chocolate for the topping but when I pulled it out of the fridge, the chocolate was hard. Did you use a certain kind? Thanks.

    1. I used regular Baker's chocolate mixed in with the Cool Whip for that top layer. Maybe you could add more Cool Whip to soften it up?

  2. can i substitute the pudding with gelatine? =)
