Now, if your peanut butter fan also loves chocolate like we do, then by all means, be sure to use a chocolate crust. If not, a graham cracker crust is the way to go!

This peanut butter pie recipe is perfect for anytime of the year, but especially when you are looking for a delicious dessert that always impresses that doesn’t require a whole lot of effort!

As a matter of fact, I remember making it on our trip years ago when we were there to celebrate Sam turning 13.

My sister-in-law told me years ago that she loved every age of her children as they experienced them, but looking back those teen years were extra special. I pinched myself a few times, remembering how I’d heard from so many that the teen years are full of headaches and hormones to the max. Remembering how the drama of the day felt like the most important thing in the entire world when I was a teenager (long, long ago!), I braced myself.

My mother-in-law always says that when living through teen years, you just have to “love them through it.”  I might turn her quote into a sign to hang in my house as a constant reminder for the days that I’m sure must be just around the bend. Until then, I’m just going to soak up the great moments as they come and pray for more of them!

One afternoon when we’d just gotten back from a day in the parks, Bart came back to the motorhome from the Trading Post with a smirk on his face and a little spring in his step. I asked what he’d brought back and he just grinned and said, “can we have this for dessert tonight?”

  1. I love pb pie but I don’t have a good recipe for it. This one looks so good! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This pie looks so creamy and delicious! Gorgeous!

  3. I have two sons. I was lucky. The teen years went by smoothly. So it does happen. So wonderful you had such a good trip to mark his birthday. And I am with you about peanut butter pie, I could eat a whole one in a very short time.

  4. This is one of our favourite pie recipes!! We put a thin layer of chocolate on the pie crust before we put the filling in (not too thick or its too hard to cut through with your fork) and like it better that way. I think next time I’d like to try the chocolate crust instead of the graham cracker crust too!

    • Oh my heavens, Susan! You are wanting me to go remake my peanut butter pie right this second and try your way! It sounds amazing and like the perfect addition! Thank you so much for sharing!!! xo

  5. I’m not a pie person, except for chocolate and peanut butter pie. This is right up my alley! I may just have to make this for Thanksgiving 🙂 I’m so excited!

  6. Oooooooh that PIE Robyn! Looks simply scrumptious! And your MIL is exactly right, “love them through it”. But I’ll tell you, there are those amazingly magical days during teen years when they turn the table and you’ll find them loving YOU through it! It’s like no other feeling in the world when your child actually comforts you and gives you advice. I’m certain you’ll have that from your sweet little fellow.

    • Thank you so much, Wendy! For a while, I had been worried about entering into those teen years and have prayed and prayed for God to go gentle on me! HA! I’m thinking praying through it and loving them through it will be the secret! I know you and your girls have such a special bond. They are just precious!

  7. Hiya, I’ve just discovered your site after making your best chocolate cake ever recipe (and it really is!) a few times recently – it’s now my go to chocoate cake without fail! Would love to try this recipe for a family pot luck we have this weekend but unsure what ‘1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping, thawed’ translates to in NZ – would you be able to expand on what this is so I can find a similar product? Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Samantha,
      I’m so glad you are enjoying the chocolate cake! For the whipped topping, here in the states, a well-known brand would be Cool Whip. I’m not sure if you have that available to you in NZ.

  8. This looks AMAZING…and very dangerous!!! 😉

    We have loved the teen years so far. Enjoy every second!

  9. YUM!!! This pie is right up my alley! This is a single serving recipe right? 🙂

    • Wouldn’t that be fabulous?! Of course, I wouldn’t blame you if you hid it from everyone so that you could enjoy it all to yourself over time. Not that I’ve ever done that or anything. 🙂

  10. I love everything about this pie!!! So yummy!!!

  11. This is mouth-watering drooling over the screen !

  12. This sounds amazing!! One problem though…. in Australia we don’t have whipped topping. What else could be substituted in the pie filling? Regular hand whipped cream?

  13. If you sprinkle crushed honey roasted peanuts on the top of the whipped peanut butter filling, the whole thing tastes like a butterfinger bar.
    I made this as individual servings in small clear plastic tumblers without baking the crust, it solidified in the fridge, and topped it w crushed honey rest peanuts and stabilized whipped cream. Then I individually wrapped them in Saran Wrap. The dessert held up very well for 3 days without losing flavor or the whipped cream getting runny. Guests will thank you for the delicious dessert!

  14. This peanut butter pie looks heavenly, Robyn!

  15. I made this for the July 4th celebration and it was a big hit!- I left the pie bare and put the toppings out for each person to build their own slice of Peanut butter pie – everyone had fun with that! This being no bake is an easy and yummy summer dessert!
