No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is completely irresistible. Gotta love that it doesn’t need an oven at all!

Hello friends!! Are you sick of me creating variation after variation of my Grandma’s perfect No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe?? Hope not… I’ve got a lot more ideas to go! It’s so inspiring and adaptable.

If you’re a peanut butter lover, that pie recipe is a must-try. It’s rich, but light and mousse-y, loaded with peanut butter flavor, and you can prep it in about 10 minutes.

It’s amazing and classic as-is, but it’s also an awesome canvas for creating other easy pie recipes, and I’ve done that a number of times.

I would stop, but I love peanut butter, I love pie, and more importantly: you all seem to love new variations of that no bake peanut butter pie recipe too! It’s delicious and simple, and who doesn’t need more recipes like that?

What took me so long to add chocolate to this recipe though? I have no idea, but today I’m bringing you a No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe – FINALLY. In my defense, I’ve made that peanut butter pie with Reese’s Cups before (see Reese’s Cup No Bake Peanut Butter Pie recipe!), so it sorta had chocolate, but it was an unofficial ingredient. Now it’s an official ingredient.

For this No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe, I made a Nutter Butter crust. For the most part, I make my Grandma’s pie with a prepared shortbread or graham cracker crust for ease, but when I want to put in a little more effort, I typically make a crust with crushed Nutter Butter cookies.

Starting with peanut butter cookies built right into the crust is always a good thing!

Next up is a layer of no bake chocolate cheesecake. Not only do you get chocolate in this peanut butter pie, but you get cheesecake too!

This is accomplished easily by adding melted semi-sweet chocolate to a no bake cheesecake batter. Super simple.

Spread that chocolate cheesecake into the Nutter Butter crust, and boom, we’re off to the races in this No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.

Last, but certainly not least, a layer of peanut butter pie filling from my Grandma’s classic pie. Rich, but light, and super peanut buttery.

I actually included a bit of extra cream cheese in this layer too so that this pie has a cheesecake element to it. Altogether, there’s a lot of wonderful elements to a pie that is still super simple and quick to prepare!

Top this No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Recipe with whipped cream and a few chocolate curls, and you’ve got the best of chocolate and peanut butter in an easy dessert!
