  • For the crust
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • For the filling
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • For the ganache topping
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Adapted from


Step 1

To prepare the crust, blend graham cracker crumbs, 4 tablespoons sugar, brown sugar and melted butter in a bowl until fully combined. Press mixture into a 9″ pie plate, covering bottom completely and pushing the crumbs about 1-2 inches up the side of the pie plate. Put the pie crust into the freezer while preparing the filling.

Whip the 1 1/2 cups heavy cream until it holds peaks. Set aside in refrigerator while preparing the rest of the filling.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and mix until blended. Add peanut butter and vanilla, mixing well. (Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure that the ingredients are fully blended.)

Fold whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture, blending well. Pour filling into the prepared pie crust. Place filled pie into the freezer.

To prepare the ganache, in a small saucepan (use one with a lid), slowly bring the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream to a boil (be careful not to scald the cream). Turn off the heat and add chocolate chips, pushing the chips into the cream until almost completely covered. Put the lid on the pan and let sit on the stove.

After 10 minutes, stir until the chocolate chips are melted and fully blended into the cream. Cool to room temperature, then pour sauce over pie. Place in freezer for 30 minutes before serving.

Note: If serving pie more than 1/2 an hour after final preparation, store in the freezer. Thaw for 20 minutes before serving for a frozen, ice cream-like consistency. (If you are having difficulty cleanly removing the pie crust from your pie plate, submerge the very bottom of the dish in some hot tap water – about 1/2 inch water in your kitchen sink – to loosen the crust being careful not to get water in the pie itself.) Or thaw for longer in the refrigerator for a gooey, soft pie.

I made this pie last night and it is such a hit! I do have one question though. I did use creamy peanut butter but my cream cheese/peanut butter mixture wasn’t super smooth and ended up a little dry so it was hard to easily mix well with the whipped cream. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Jordan – Glad you enjoyed the pie! We have found that we get the smoothest filling when the cream cheese is softened and the peanut butter is at room temperature. We’ve also used some different brands of peanut butter over the years – a brand like Jif mixes up very smoothly but Teddy’s (which is all-natural) wasn’t quite as smooth. I’m not sure what brand peanut butter you used, but that could also have an impact. Hope that helps!

My BF loved this recipe. I did cheat and I used a premise crust. I used all natural peanut butter and organic whipping cream.

Do you need to keep any left over pie in the freezer?

Posted August 31, 2018 in Questions | Reply

Martha wrote:

Hi Eileen – You can keep it in the freezer so it stays a more frozen texture or in the refrigerator which will keep it a creamier texture.

I have a thing about milk products if they aren’t cooked. Could this be made with Kool Whip? I know the chocolate toping has to be cream but I had reference to the pie filling!

Martha wrote:

Hi Jeanie – Sure – you can swap in Cool Whip. It will impact the taste and texture a bit (especially if you leave out the cream cheese too) but it’s definitely an option if you have food sensitivities.
