This {no bake} chocolate peanut butter cheesecake pie may look very similar to this, also conveniently named, {no bake} black forest cheesecake pie. It should look and sound similar because this peanut butter chocolate version was a play from the wildly popular black forest version I posted just a few weeks ago.

I make a lot of desserts so it’s really hard for a recipe to stand out among the rest, but this cheesecake pie did. It’s so simple to make that you would never guess it’s only a few ingredients and only takes about 5 minutes to make.

The cheesecake mixes up in one bowl. It’s a simple mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, fresh whipped cream, and sugar. Separate that batter in half and add additional sweetener to each and then peanut butter to one, and cocoa powder to the other. Layer those in a prepared Oreo crust and then let it hang out in the fridge for at least 6 hours.

Whenever I make no bake pies, I always let it sit overnight in the fridge. I think it cuts better, sets up better, and the flavors have time to come together.

It tastes exactly like a giant Reese’s peanut butter cup. So rich, decadent, but at the same time it’s very light in texture so it does not feel heavy when eating it.

If you want to, use freshly whipped cream or additional Cool Whip to pipe on top of the pie, or to dollop each slice with some. Garnish with some chopped up Reese’s peanut butter cups too. I did not feel like it needed this extra stuff because the pie is already so creamy. But, it sure looks pretty.

Ingredients

  • 1 ready-to-use Oreo crumb crust
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 carton (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar, divided

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth and combined.
  • Add in sour cream and vanilla extract. Beat together until combined.
  • Fold in Cool Whip with a spatula.
  • Divide mixture into 2 bowls. In one bowl, add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and creamy peanut butter. Stir to combine. In the other bowl, add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and cocoa powder. Stir to combine.
  • Spread the peanut butter mixture into the pie crust.
  • Next, spread the chocolate layer into the pie.
  • Cover and let refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight works really good too.
  • If wanted, garnish the pie with additional Cool Whip or whipped cream and some chopped up Reese's bars.
  • Cut into slices and serve. This pie softens up a bit when left out at room temperature, so be sure and store in the fridge.

Notes

You want to make sure your cream cheese is really soft so you avoid lumps. I like to put mine in a bowl and microwave it for about 30-45 seconds to make sure it's nice and soft.

          October 14, 2017 at 1:22 pm Good question! I didn't realize there were two sizes. I just get the one at the grocery store. I'll have to double check the size next time I am there.

    September 2, 2017 at 3:31 pm Have you tried substituting plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream? I've got that on hand and just wondering if that would work? Recipe looks delicious and so easy! Thank you!

      September 3, 2017 at 8:56 pm I have never used Greek yogurt but I do know that it is a common substitute in baking for sour cream. I have some quick bread recipes that I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it tastes just fine. Yes, go ahead and use it because they're both tangy and creamy and I am sure it would work just fine.

    September 27, 2017 at 3:06 pm Is the powdered sugar necessary? I don't have any and don't want to buy a big bag to only need 4 tablespoons. Can I substitute it or omit it entirely? Just wondering.

      September 27, 2017 at 4:27 pm Yes, I think you will definitely want the powdered sugar or some other sweetener. You would be fine using granulated sugar in it's place.

    October 6, 2017 at 6:16 pm I have a 1 litre container of cool whip. Would 8 oz be 1 cup or more due to itโ€™s light weight ?

      October 6, 2017 at 9:23 pm I think there is about 2 cups of Cool Whip in one of the 8 oz containers. So if you don't have the 8 oz tub then I would just measure out 2 cups of Cool Whip from the 1 litre. I hope that helps :)

    November 7, 2017 at 12:30 pm Did you use natural peanut butter or regular? I wonder if you could use natural?

      November 11, 2017 at 1:50 am I use regular. I've found that natural peanut butter does not work well in baked goods. The texture is gritty and thicker than regular.

      November 16, 2017 at 10:46 pm I have never frozen so I can't say for sure. This pie can be made a couple of days ahead of time and stored covered in the fridge. I actually love this pie the day after I made it and even on the second and third day. I would just make it like 2 days in advance or the day before and leave it in the fridge.

          November 18, 2017 at 10:47 am I should add that if you make it in advance DO NOT add the garnishes on top until right before serving. If you are using them, add the whipped cream and Reese's minis before serving or add to each slice when serving. Good luck :)

    December 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm I was wondering if you would taste the sour cream in the pie? I have some family members that do not like sour cream. Thanks!

      December 13, 2017 at 8:11 pm I don't think you can taste it, but then again that's coming from someone who does mind sour cream. It's like the cheesecake flavor. Cheesecakes have sour cream in them to make them creamy and smooth. You can't really taste it, but it's there. You could always use less sour cream if you're worried about it. That should work fine maybe using half of what the recipe calls for. I hope that helps :)

    December 21, 2017 at 9:48 pm I am making this tomorrow but don't have sour cream, can I just use more cream cheese instead? Would that also help make it a little more dense like a baked cheesecake? Looks amazing!

      December 22, 2017 at 1:39 pm Good question! Very soft cream cheese (so you don't get lumps) should works just fine in place of the sour cream. I've never done it specifically with this pie, but I think it would work just fine. Enjoy โ˜บ๏ธ

      March 27, 2018 at 11:41 pm I would suggest not freezing it. I've never had good experiences with freezing dairy. If you want to make it ahead of time, that's fine, but I would just leave it in the fridge. I think the pie is actually better when it's been refrigerated for 1-2 days. It will last for several days in the fridge.
