The classic combo of chocolate and peanut butter makes for the perfect marriage in our Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. It's easy-as-pie to whip up, and better than anything you can buy at the store!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (9-inch) frozen ready-to-bake pie shell, thawed (see Note)
  • 1 (4-serving) package cook-and-serve vanilla pudding and pie filling
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (3 ounces) peanut butter chips

What to Do

  1. Bake pie shell according to package directions; let cool.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine pudding mix and milk over medium heat. Stir constantly until boiling then remove from heat.
  3. Pour half the pudding into a small bowl. Add chocolate chips to bowl and stir until chips are completely melted. Pour into pie crust.
  4. Add peanut butter chips to remaining pudding and stir until chips are completely melted. Carefully pour peanut butter mixture over chocolate mixture in pie shell. Cover and chill at least 4 hours, or until thoroughly chilled and set.


  • A rolled refrigerated pie crust can be used instead of a frozen pie shell.
  • Dress this up by spreading or dolloping top of pie with whipped topping then garnishing with miniature peanut butter cups.

This looks and sounds great. Call me crazy but I try to avoid all uses of boxed items, such as the pudding listed here. I am wondering if I could make a homemade vanilla pudding instead of the boxed 1?

I think that this is a very unique and elegant way to serve peanut butter pie! Usually it is a bunch of ingredients whipped or folded together to make up the filling, with a whipped cream layer and some sort of chocolate syrup or shavings on the top. I think the separate layers look more refined and also let people know what is in the dessert. I was wondering if you could make this ahead of time and freeze it, or if this might affect the texture in some sort of way.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen believes that it is okay to freeze this recipe. Enjoy!

I'm with you Icjii 4106443!!!!!!!!!!!!!,

In response to akila 122566 5423278 after living in Mexico the last 15 years, we have come to the conclusion that all the people from the U.S. are WAY, WAY too comfortable with convenience. They take everything for granted and dont appreciate much. Pretty sad really. Gotta learn to improvise/compromise more.

To Love of Sewing, Why don't you just reverse the order in which you fill the pie, put the whipped cream on top and there you have pie your way.

the Chocolate Peanut Butter pie recipe that I am looking for has the peanut butter on the bottom, chocolate pudding next then topped with whipped topping. Does anyone have that recipe? Would love to have it.

Love Of Sewing- i would use this exact same recipe but put the peanut butter on the bottom and the the pudding topped with whipped topping like you said.

A lady who had a restaurant years ago would mix some peanut butter in powdered sugar and make crumbles. She would cover the bottom of the baked crust with the crumbles (and saved some for the top). Then she cooked chocolate pudding and filled the pie. She topped with whipped topping and sprinkled the rest of the crumbles on top. It was yummy!

i would leave out the chocolate chips and use 1cup peanut butter chips and put into a graham cracker crust.

My mother has been making this pie ever since my brother was a kid (he's now 51). She covers the bottom and sides of the baked shell with peanut butter to add more flavor. She never used the chocolate portion but it does sound good. I always thought mom should have patented some of her ideas because many years later someone would have the same idea in print media!

This sounds so good too, can't wait to try..

This sounds so good and really easy but I think I would convert this to a cheesecake instead of pudding use the peanut butter and chocolate melted in cheesecake batter and use a gram crust, sounds so much tastier! Thanks for the idea. :)

You do know that many people are eating cheesecake these days made from a boxed mix put out by Jello pudding, right? The world is a little too hooked on convenience, I think.
