How to Store Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie

This pie can be kept in the fridge or the freezer. In the fridge the pie is softer and the filling is light. But it also tastes amazing out of the freezer. Now that I’ve made this pie a few times, I’ve discovered that I prefer it frozen rather then just refrigerated.

Even when “frozen” the filling is still creamy and easy to cut through, the only thing that gives a little trouble to cut through is the oreo crust. But I figure I can dish out a little elbow grease for a piece of pie.

Can This Reese’s Pie Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes. You can make this pie ahead of time by wrapping it well in plastic wrap and storing in the freezer for up to 1 week.

How Long Does it Take to Make Pie

  • 5 minutes to make the crust
  • 5 minutes to make the peanut butter filling
  • 10 minutes to make the chocolate ganache and add the reese’s cups
  • 1-2 hours to chill in the fridge or freezer

Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

It was really easy to make this no bake chocolate peanut butter pie gluten free by using gluten free oreos for the crust. All of the other ingredients in the recipe are naturally gluten free!

Tips for Making No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie

  • Blend the entire oreo (cream and cookies) when making the crust.
  • I recommend using creamy peanut butter, not natural peanut butter as it can separate.
  • To decorate the top of the pie with reese’s cups, cut 8 mini peanut butter cups in half. Place the halves around the outside of the pie. Add more chopped peanut butter cups to the center.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

This no bake chocolate peanut butter pie is a must make! This reese’s pie has an oreo crust, creamy peanut butter filling and is loaded with reese’s cups. Plus it’s only 8 ingredients! Serve it chilled from the fridge or frozen!

Ingredients

Oreo Crust

  • 1 package oreos (14.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 container cool whip (8 oz), thawed

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 & 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Topping

  • Reese's peanut butter cups, some cut in half, others chopped

Instructions

Oreo Crust

  1. Process the oreos in a food processor or blender until fine crumbs remain. In a large bowl, combine the crushed oreos with the melted butter. Press this mixture evenly into a 9 or 10 inch pie pan. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to pack the crust down. Place the crust in the fridge to chill until ready to fill.

Filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until well blended. Add the cool whip and blend on low until combined. Spread this mixture over the crust. Return pie to the fridge while making the ganache.

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Place chocolate chips in a medium heat-proof bowl.
  2. In a small pot over low heat, heat the heavy cream until just before boiling.
  3. Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips. Allow the mixture to stand for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Use a spatula to stir the mixture until smooth.
  5. Allow the ganache to come to room temperature before adding it to the pie. Pour the ganache on top of the pie, using a spatula to evenly spread it.

Topping

  1. Before the chocolate hardens, add the peanut butter cups. Start by adding the halved peanut butter cups around the edges, placing them as close or as far apart as you want. Then add chopped peanut butter cups to the center of the pie.
  2. Cover the pie with tinfoil and return to the fridge or freezer for 1-2 hours. Before serving, remove the pie from the freezer and let it sit for a 15 minutes to make cutting it easier. Cover and refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.
