No bake chocolate and peanut butter pie

Have you ever tried to make a no bake chocolate and peanut butter pie before? This was my first time and for sure it will not be my last. 

No bake chocolate and peanut butter pie

I experimented with the peanut butter filling while making these chocolate and peanut butter pie. I didn’t know how the pie would turn out but in the end it was great. You could omit it if you like but I think it complements the chocolate flavor rather well.

A few things to note about this chocolate and peanut butter pie:

  1. My chocolate and peanut butter pie wasn’t that sweet at all because I used 72% dark chocolate. You could use the same kind but if you like it sweeter use a lower cocoa content dark chocolate like 60% instead.
  2. I also used a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom. I like it because once the pie solidifies it is easier to get out. You could you a regular pie plate if you like too though.
  3. I used ginger cookies for the base of the pie, which weren’t that sweet either. They were from Trader Joes. Use any kind of cookies you may like.

This pie is rather simple. The crust does not need to be baked. I have seen many variations in which you do but I didn’t for my version. I hope you get to try this pie. You won’t be disappointed :-)

Enjoy!

  • 1 3/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 cup organic creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups GF ginger cookies, ground

  • chopped peanuts and extra cookies to decorate

Directions:

Place 1 1/4 cup coconut cream together with the chopped chocolate and salt in a safe microwavable dish and melt the chocolate in 45 second increments stirring in between.

Mix the cookies with the coconut oil and milk and press over a 9 inch tart pan with removable bottom. Pour half the chocolate mixture over the crust followed by the peanut butter. Spread the peanut butter over the chocolate 1 inch away from the edge. Pour and smooth the rest of the melted chocolate over the peanut butter.

Place the pie in the fridge for 3-4 hours and decorate with the rest of the coconut cream, chopped peanuts and extra cookies, just like in the pictures.

  6. Popcorn is my FAV and this looks delish!

  7. I don’t see the photo of the paper bag. Is the paper bag a good ole school paper lunch bag or something larger? I plan to make for my daughter’s bday party which will have 6 little girls and their mothers. Just trying to sort out how much of each ingredient to purchase. Thanks!

  8. can I make this 4 days in advance for my lil girl bday party

  9. How soon in advance can I make these? Is 5 days too early if I keep them in a large tightly-sealed ziplock bag?

  10. How do you get your white chocolate not to melt? and how do you stop your popcorn from go soggy?
    I tried your recipe and my popcorn wasn’t crunchy

  11. What you mean not to melt? The popcorn will become not soggy but a bit chewy. When you mix it in with the warm chocolate is losses a bit of the crunchiness but it is still good in my book. If you like just wait a little bit to cool the chocolate for a few minutes, 10 maybe, before mixing so it does not get so soggy. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Chocolate is one of the most enjoyable and effective ways to medicate.Full Melt chocolates are organic fair trade premier brand of medicated chocolate bars.

  13. I am curious why you use 2 different forms of white chocolate. Why not just use 10 oz. of the bar or 10 oz. of chips?

  14. So do not waste extra time and browse more bellow about how to download this hack tool.

  15. How long does this last I was wanting to make it for my wedding Could I make it in the Saturday and would it last till Monday without going soggy? 

  16. Do you use plain white popcorn or butter popcorn? And would just microwavable bags of popcorn work?

  17. Thank you for sharing the recipe.  It’s delicious and a big hit I add pecans, pecan pieces with the popcorn and cover it all with the chocolate. My only problem with it…….it’s hard to stop eating it. Sooo good!!

  18. Using this for my brother’s shower. Making it teal and purple instead however since that’s the color scheme for the party as the mother requested.

  19. Okay guys just an fyi don’t put your hands in the chocolate and start mixing directly after you’ve pouring it out. I burnt the crap out of my fingers. Also Ghiralldi melting chips work very well

  20. Why is the popcorn mixture still sticky??? I thought it would be firm.

  21. Can I  use a popcorn maker instead?
