This is my first ever homemade pie. What do you think? Well, it looked pretty good so I decided to have a piece at 9 in the morning when I was doing this photo shoot :) It seemed like a good way to celebrate my first homemade pie!

Gluten free reese’s peanut butter pie with oreo crust

It was really easy to make this Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie gluten free by using gluten free oreos for the crust. All of the other ingredients in the recipe are naturally gluten free, but sadly not calorie free, haha.

Frozen or refrigerated peanut butter cup pie?

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.

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie

Yield: one 9 or 10 inch pie
Additional Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours

The BEST no bake peanut butter cup chocolate pie! Oreo crust, creamy peanut butter filling, chocolate ganache all LOADED with peanut butter cups!


Oreo Crust

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


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

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 & 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, some cut in half, others chopped


Oreo Crust

  1. Process the oreos in a food processor until fine crumbs remain. In a large bowl, combine the crushed oreos with the melted butter. Press this mixture evenly into a 10 inch pie pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place in fridge until ready to use.


  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 stir with a spatula until mixed. Spread this mixture on the crust and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

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.


  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 freezer or fridge for 1-2 hours. Before serving, remove the pie from the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes to make cutting it easier. Cover and freeze or refrigerate any leftovers.

  30. I made this for a party last weekend, and it was AMAZING! Have you ever tried using reduced fat cream cheese and/or fat-free Cool Whip?

  31. Dumb question here, but do you put only the cookie from the Oreo, or cream too?

  32. If this is you’re first pie, I officially declare you a pie protege. Peanut butter lovers (*cough* me *cough*) might just lose their stuff over this. Yum!!!

  33. Hi –
    Quick question- it looks like there are PB cups in the peanut butter filling too. Are there??  Gonna make this baby tomorrow to go along with Sunday dinner!!!

  34. How many Oreo cookies do you use? I buy the big bulk package from Costco, so I’m not sure how many come in a regular package.

  35. Is it possible to replace the creme cheese with something else or leave it out?

  36. Can I just get the store-bought Oreo crust or will that not be big enough/ taste as good?

  37. Dying over here. Can’t wait to try this recipe. And your pics are amazing! :)

  38. Planning on making this soon. Can I use less whipped cream and more cream cheese?

    • Hi Robin! I would think that would be okay! The pie does have a rich cream cheese taste already – why are you wanting to use more cream cheese?

  39. I just made this yummy looking pie and it turned out beautifully. I got a tiny bit scared though…all the other peanut butter pies I’ve made had icing sugar in the peanut butter mixture. So I added some, even though it’s not in your directions, Beth.  I’m wondering for next time, does the peanut butter layer taste sweet enough without adding sugar?  BTW, the ganache was fabulous. I have to confess I saved some to put over ice cream.  Thanks for sharing an impressive-looking peanut butter pie recipe. I’m sure it will taste as good as it looks!

    • Hi Carole! I think the peanut butter layer is sweetness without any added sugar. The cool whip definitely adds a little sweetness, but when cut into a slice, there are a lot of sweet things going on with all the chocolate and peanut butter cups!

  40. Do I have to use heavy cream isn’t there something else I could use?

  41. I hope you have a fantastic  2017 Holiday. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year!
    I get major pleasure just reading and trying what you put out there so I thank you so very much.

  42. What kind of chocolate chips did you use? Were they semi sweet or milk chocolate? 

  43. I made these into “cupcakes”: oreo on bottom of cupcake cup, peanut butter filling, ganache, and a quarter reese cup on top. Nice and little dessert appetizers for a party. Thanks for the recipe!

  44. Can whipped cream work instead of cool whip and if it can would it be the same amout

    • Yes! You can use homemade whipped cream and it would be the same amount!
