Current status: eating leftover Reese’s Pieces for breakfast.
I wish I had a nice slice of pie to go with it. But unfortunately for me, this Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie is long gone.
The BF ate it in record time. So there’s a 100% chance I’ll make this again in the near future.
Aside from being literally the most delicious combination of Oreos, peanut butter, chocolate and Reese’s…it’s really quite pretty too. Rather festive for Halloween if I do say so myself.
And if you weren’t convinced yet—it is easy peasy to throw together.
So crack open some peanut butter and get to it.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie
20 peanut butter Oreos (regular works too)
5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
PEANUT BUTTER FILLING
3/4 cup heavy cream
8 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Reese’s Pieces
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease your pie pan lightly with butter.
Make the crust: In a food processor, finely pulse the Oreos. Stir in melted butter until it is the texture of wet sand. Firmly press into the pie dish. Freeze for 10-15 minutes before baking. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool.
Make the chocolate ganache: Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Scald the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. As soon as it begins to boil remove from heat and pour over the chocolate. Allow to sit for 30 seconds, then continually, gently stir until the ganache is smooth. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature and slowly thicken.
Make the filling: Using a hand mixer, beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, then set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together until combined. Mixture should be rather thick. Slowly fold in the whipped cream until smooth.
Assemble the pie: Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the Reese’s Pieces on top of the cooled crust. Pour ganache into your pie pan, then spread peanut butter filling evenly on top. Chop the remaining 1/2 cup of Reese’s Pieces and sprinkle on top.
Before serving, chill the pie in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours to firm up. Enjoy!
