A taste of untraditional Thanksgiving

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is a delicious way to escape the flavors that are so popular during the fall and winter months.

When fall comes around, some people look forward to everything pumpkin spice or apple flavored. Others would rather stick with cherished foods that are always “in style.” If you’re anything like me, you would enjoy a simple, easy-to-make recipe that fits any season. That’s why I would like to share with you one of my all-time favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie recipes.


This recipe usually takes approximately 25 minutes to prepare, and 1 hour 25 minutes to fully complete.


  • 25 whole Oreos, or any other full chocolate cookie
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted 
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • One 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
  • One 8 oz Cool Whip, or other packaged whipped topping, thawed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Crush cookies to fine crumbs. Pour the melted butter over the cookie crumbles and stir until combined. Press mixture into the bottom of a pie pan and bake until set (5 to 7 minutes).
  2. For the filling: Beat the peanut butter with the cream cheese until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add in the thawed whipped topping and beat until smooth, scraping the sides as needed.
  3. Finally, pour filling into the cooled crust, evening out the top, then let chill for at least an hour before serving. 

This recipe is a fun, easy way to fulfill your sweet tooth over the course of the multiple holidays. The best thing about this pie is that it’s so simple you can slightly change it to make it your own. I’ve heard of people adding things such as cinnamon or cocoa powder for an even chocolatier taste. If you do reproduce this highly recommended treat, I hope you enjoy it!
