It wasn’t until after I had kids that I really started to appreciate the chocolate and peanut butter combo. In fact, as a kid, Reese’s were my least favorite candy bar. I don’t know if it was a shift in hormones or what, but by my third kid, it had somehow moved up to one of my favorites!
Now I have a ton of peanut butter and chocolate combination recipes on the site. I can’t wait for you to try this one. It is so good and so rich that a little slice is all you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Frequently asked questions about making this No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie
Can I use CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER?
Technically you could, but one of the best things about this pie is the silky smooth texture of the filling. I recommend using creamy.
can I make a homemade Pie crust?
Yes. To make your own crust: crush 18 Oreos into crumbs (I use my food processor). Before crushing them, take the cream filling out of half of them. Combine crumbs with 5 tbsp of melted butter. Mix thoroughly and press evenly and firmly into a 9-inch pie tin. I like to cover my hand with a plastic bag when I do this to keep my hand clean.
Can I use PB2 Peanut butter powder?
No. The texture will not come out as silky smooth.
If I don’t have a hand mixer, what should I use to mix the filling?
How long does this need to refrigerate before serving?
I like to make this pie at least 12 to 24 hours in advance. I really like the texture when it is completely set up and really cold. It has a nice thickness to it that is so decadent to eat. YUM!
