Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2014/02/17/chocolate-peanut-butter-cup-pie/

Imagine a pie that tastes like the filling of a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and you’ll come pretty close to this no-bake chocolate peanut butter pie.

Dark chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and a secret healthy ingredient none of your guests will ever notice. Although there’s another recipe for no-bake peanut butter pie already on the blog, this time I wanted to create a pie even banana-haters can enjoy. You will find no banana, no flour, and no soy in today’s recipe.

But you will most definitely find chocolate.

Peanut Butter Pudding Pie

And peanut butter.

If you like Reeses, this peanut butter pie is a must-try!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2014/02/17/chocolate-peanut-butter-cup-pie/

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, or allergy-friendly alternative (345g)
  • 2 cups thick plain or vanilla yogurt (I used 3 containers SoDelicious coconutmilk yogurt) (480g)
  • pure stevia to taste, or 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Prepared pie crust or Healthy Chocolate Pie Crust
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, or honey (strict vegans don’t use honey) (30g)
  • 2 tbsp melted virgin coconut oil (Alternatively, you can simply top the pie with melted chocolate chips.)(20g)

Blend first 5 ingredients until smooth. Pour into your prepared pie crust and chill one hour (or more). In a small dish, stir together the remaining ingredients until a smooth sauce is formed. Spread over the chilled pie and refrigerate until chocolate hardens.

  1. Thanks for another great recipe. I love reeses cups so I am definitely going to give this recipe a try!

  2. Wow does this ever look good! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  3. Waking up to a giant peanut butter cup was the best way I could have possibly started this Monday. YUM Katie! Pinned :)

  4. Emilylovesraisins says:

    I saw this post and I got really sad, because it looked so good but (like many of your pie recipes) it probably used mori-nu tofu, which I don’t have easy access to.
    But then I read that there was no soy! Hallelujah!
    I will definitely be making this soon :)

  5. Natasha says:

    Yummy – please could you do a recipe for chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes?

  6. This looks ridiculously tasty! I only just mentioned on another blog there, how coconut and peanut go hand in hand, and then I saw this 😀 Mmmmm sounds divine, and looks so lovely and fluffy! x

  7. I think this pie might be my dream come true…can’t wait to try!

  8. EVA says:

    YES! So simple! Although a little too high in fats for my unfortunate gastrointestinal disorder, I’m sure this would be just as delicious cut into little mini circles and eaten like an actual Reese’s. With the pie crust, it’d be like a Reese’s-Oreo type of deal, both of which I haven’t eaten in years! BRING IT ON

    Also, I miss the banana.

  9. Kate says:

    Thank you so much for this! I spotted a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake on another blog that looked so good but also soooooooo bad for you — this might satisfy my craving.

  10. lauren says:

    Yogurt, chocolate, and peanut butter! YUM! What a great idea, thanks Katie!

  11. This sounds delicious, and I love that it’s made with yogurt!

  12. I’m pinning this and trying this week! Looks so good :-)

  13. Oh yum! PB & chocolate is the best combo ever!!

  14. Alexa says:

    I know you’re not a crust lover, and neither am I. Do you think this could go crust-less?
    Regardless, it looks spectacular. I was pumped it is soy-free, as well!

    1. Dani says:

      As is, not really. You can eat it as a mousse-type dessert, but it won’t stand up on it’s own as a pie. The texture is very similar to a cream pie. You can try adding a little xanthan gum to thicken it up.

    2. emaliah82 says:

      You can easily make it crustless if you keep it in the freezer. I did anyways WITH the crust because I like it that way…just let it warm up for a few minutes before eating. It didn’t get too frozen at all!

  15. Deanna says:

    I’m drooling already! Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven :) I love how you used yogurt. I’m so making this ASAP. Thanks for posting!

  16. Holyyyy crap Katie, this looks so good!! My two favorite flavors rolled into one. I cannot wait to try this. You’re killing it as always!

  17. Danielle says:

    This recipe looks so yummy! Wondering if it would work to divide it between cupcake liners for mini crustless pies?

  18. Interesting that you used yogurt! I’m tempted to try using it in a cheesecake, see how that works out.

  19. A reese’s peanut butter cup pie? You are killing me 😛 I love peanut butter pie but I find it SO heavy so this looks like a much better alternative!! Thanks!

  20. Moi says:

    Hey, I was just wondering… Which is the secret ingredient no one would guess? ‘Cause I don’t really see outrageous things in there. Just delicious ingredients and awesome pics, really.

    1. Steph says:

      I second this question! What’s the secret healthy ingredient? All these ingredients look pretty normal to me.

      1. May says:

        I think it’s the yogurt? Most pies are made with condensed milk/cream/etc.

  21. This looks amazing! I am a fan of all things peanut butter. Will try soon!

  22. Hanna says:

    I made something really similar the other day, and let me tell you it went down pretty well, so I’m sure yours would too! I’d really like to give your version a go too.

  23. Emma of Zimt says:

    Holy Toledo!!!!! Looks fantastic- and thanks for the reminder- I am all out of PB :/

  24. Steph says:

    Oh, my goodness, that looks so good. Containing all of my favourite foods- peanut butter, dark choc and pie!
    It looks so rich and gooey- I wouldn’t have suspected the yoghurt!
    Thanks for another brilliant recipe :)

  25. carrie Kaabachi says:

    Just made this with my kids & everyone rates it as “awesome”. I’m excited that NO ONE knew there was yogurt in it!! Awesome fact #2…no flour crust that’s choc full of healthy ingredients!! I didn’t have enough cashews so had to add 2 graham crackers and 1 pretzel rod, so I omitted the 1/8 tsp. Salt. Thank you for a delicious and super easy recipe! !

    1. Thank you so much for making it. I love your idea to add pretzels to the crust!

  26. This looks heavenly! I can’t wait to try! I made a version of your Raspberry Cobbler bar for Valentine’s day, except with mixed berries and I added some white chocolate chips. I thought that you would approve of that addition 😉

    1. Oh yes, I definitely approve!

  27. Oh my goodness gracious. I need this right now!

  28. Claire says:

    Would it be really bad to just make the filling and stir through some choc chips and set in ramekins?

  29. Theresa says:

    Looks so…. good! The recipe says pure stevia to taste. How much would you start out with?
    Thanks for all the time you spend trying out recipes for all of us.

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      I would assume you’d use the equivalent of 1/3 cup sugar.

  30. I’m loving that this is a healthier alternative to such a classic recipe!

  31. Juli says:

    Katie, i like your recipes very much, but i have a question, i’ve already asked in another blog, because there seems to be a translation problem with us complicated germans… In Germany there are two different words for peanutbutter: ‘Erdnussmus’ is ground peanuts with a bit of salt and no other ingredients. ‘Erdnussbutter’ is ground peanuts with vegetable oil, sugar and salt. Which one do you use? Best wishes from germany

    1. Maana says:

      She means the “Erdnussmus”, because that’s the natural kind that is Food for you :). That’s the thong you should always buy, never buy the other kind.

  32. Looks incredible. Know what I’m going to have to make this weekend :-)

  33. This pie looks so delicious! And gorgeous.
    Pinning!

  34. Mary says:

    OMG GETINMABELLY!!!! This looks absolutely fantastic! I can’t wait to try it!

  35. Janet Phad says:

    I tried to sign up for recipes and it sent me to some google burner … I hate google … it just goes on and on and I don’t have time or patience for that.

    1. Janet Phad says:

      it’s 1:53pm not 7:53

      1. May says:

        Hi Janet. Sign up for recipes in the top right corner of the page by e-mail. Or use bloglovin.com.

        And the time is based on Katie’s location, not yours. So it is correct.

  36. Mmmmm, this dessert combines the two things I love most in dessert!! Will definitely put this on my to-do list :)
    I was also wondering, do you have a healthy recipe for toffee? If not, I would love to see what you can do as toffee is a big love of mine!

    1. Not yet, but I’m trying. The last attempt resulted in me setting a pot on fire… 😕

      1. Hehe, accidents happen … 😉 Glad to hear it is in the works though, very excited!

  37. Sadye says:

    Thanks, on behalf of all banana-haters!

  38. Molly says:

    Can I use normal oil rather than coconut oil for the chocolate topping or will it affect the flavor? This looks delicious and my hubby will LOVE it!

    1. Anna says:

      Coconut oil hardens at cold temperatures, so I’m not sure if the topping will set up the same way with other oils

    2. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      It will not harden.

  39. Kayla says:

    This looks so delicious, it’s hard to believe it’s healthy! I love it, and I’m sure my husband would too :)

  40. Kayla says:

    This looks so delicious, it’s hard to believe it’s healthy! I love it, and I’m sure any guests would too :)

  41. Josh says:

    HOLY YUM. So simple to make, yet it looks so indulgent. Beyond excited to give this recipe a try!

  42. Allison says:

    That looks SO delicious! I bought all the ingredients tonight, and I hope to make it sometime very, very soon! Thanks :)

  43. Audrey says:

    Oh look, a personal-non-sharable-sized Reese’s Cup just for me. But alas, I dare not make it yet because my husband absolutely hates peanut butter and I’d be stuck eating the whole thing myself. It shall be my treat when I reach my goal of losing 30 pounds…and I’ll immediately go back in said diet the next day. ha!! (Seriously, though, can’t wait to try it!)

  44. Dani says:

    It tastes like a traditional peanut butter pie, not really like a Reeses Cup. My mom loves Reeses but hates peanut butter pie and said this was inedible. I like peanut butter pie and thought it was pretty good.

  45. I love adding yogurt to desserts. No one ever notices the difference and it’s healthy. Love this! Pinned.

  46. Gayle says:

    Superb! I had most ingredients on hand so I picked up the dates for the pie crust and made this. Sooo delicious AND it might be healthy enough to have as a meal!! Thanks a million Katie!!

    1. Gayle says:

      Oh and I did not add any stevia or sugar as the vanilla greek yougurt was sweet enough for me.

    2. Karen G says:

      I are it as breakfast. Is that bad? 😉

  47. Yeah! A Giant Peanut Butter Cup actually made with HEALTHY ingredients to fuel your body!

  48. Karin says:

    I made this when I was home for the weekend. I put it in the fridge, and when I came back half an hour later, it was GONE!! My Dad, who probably loves sugar more than his kids, had eaten it all! I found him on the treadmill with a very bad conscience…. From the spoonful I tried while making it, this cake is delicious! I’ll make one just for myself today (and I’ll keep it locked up in a secret place!)! Thanks for all these inspiring recipes!! You make a healthy life worth living!
    A big hug from Cologne!

  49. Melanie says:

    I made this pie last night. I was so excited when I found this recipe, but upon making it I was really disappointed. The filling did not set (and now that I look at the recipe with baking eyes and not excited eyes, there is absolutely no setting agent in your recipe) and slopped everywhere. I could not even cut it properly. Even though I let the pie sit for a day, hoping that it would thicken up, but I was mistaken. So utterly disappointed in this pie.

    1. Karen G says:

      So you are blaming the recipe even though there are other people who left comments on the exact same post saying it worked for them? It worked for me too. I was just coming on here to leave a comment about how much we loved this recipe! Maybe it was something you did wrong or an ingredient you changed? The peanut butter is the thickener in this recipe, and it should work fine to thicken it to cutting consistency.

      1. emaliah82 says:

        My pie set up just fine in the fridge and was plenty firm and not a sloppy mess at all. I decided I wanted it even firmer so put it in the freezer and then just let the pieces soften for a few minutes before eating. Fridge or freezer, it is DELISH! Make sure you use a good quality yogurt (I used a thick one with no added sugar) and I recommend Smucker’s Natural peanut butter without any added sugar. It’s all in the ingredients because this recipe ROCKS!!! :)

    2. ioulia kornberg says:

      It didn’t set for me either, but I didn’t care because I loved the way it tasted. Next time I will use vanilla Greek yogurt as it’s thicker than the watery organic lowfat vanilla yogurt I used.
      Also, my crust was crumbly but I think my dates were too dry. Next time will soften the dates so they get sticky or use homemade date paste.

      YUMMY as all get out!

      1. Alex says:

        Mine set perfectly! New favorite recipe SO YUM!

  50. Bianca says:

    Would any kind of peanut butter be fine for this recipe? All I have is homemade peanut butter, which is similar to natura peanut butter in texture. Sometimes it can’t be used in certain recipes… Thanks! :)

    1. Michelle says:

      The peanut butter Katie uses is whole foods brand 365, which is just peanuts and salt, so i assume homemade peanut butter would work.

    2. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      That will be perfect!

  51. emaliah82 says:

    Made this recipe last week and it was AMAZING!!! I simply ADORE chocolate peanut butter pie and it completely hit the spot! There was a little extra filling that wouldn’t fit into the crust so I poured it into little heart ice cube trays/molds that I have and froze them. I am going to make sure there is extra filling next time and layer the molds with some of the chocolate coating on top. NUMMYLICIOUS!!!! :) Definitely one of my new favorite recipes! THANK YOU Katie!!!! :)

  52. Yogi Ayal says:

    OMG vegan Reeses Peanut Butter Cup pie = heaven! Can’t wait to make this (or should I say eat it!)

  53. Oh my god the picture made me scroll down to find this post!!! It looks frock’s amazing and looks so easy to prepare. What a treat!!!

  54. Stephanie says:

    I made this with almond butter. Super yummy! I did make a mistake by not realizing that I had to bake the pre-made pie crust. So when I took the finished chilled pie out of the fridge, I had to then bake the whole pie! Whoops! Didn’t make a difference in flavor though. One thing I did was freeze the pie and it’s even yummier that way. Mmm mmm mmm!

  55. Susan says:

    Just made this last night-the first of your recipes I’ve ever tried. I used vanilla coconut milk yogurt from Trader Joe’s and left out the sugar because it was already pretty sweet. So yummy! I can’t wait to have more today!

  56. Erin says:

    I made this pie and it never hardened in the fridge. It turned into soup when I tried to cut a piece. How did yours keep it’s shape?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      It shouldn’t turn to soup, and other commenters seem to have made it successfully. I’m not sure what you did wrong, but have you checked out CCK’s recipe troubleshoot FAQ page at the top of her blog? Here’s the link:
      http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/faq-page/recipe-questions-and-troubleshooting/

  57. khadija says:

    This looks so amazing, I am definetly giving this a try.
    However I am a little worried that the filling won’t set and be too liquid, well I am excited to see how it turns out anyway!
    Thanks for the recipe.

  58. Denise Stephens says:

    I am vegan… powdered peanut butter and coconut milk allows me to make and eat the most incredible “cookies” and mouses.. with like coco powder, coconut milk, powdered peanut butter 85% less fat and real maple syrup. I cannot believe how great it is together.. blender, and BAM! heaven!

  59. Eve says:

    Thank you Katie….for yet ANOTHER amazingly healthy yet sinfully delicious dessert! My daughter requested this for her 15th birthday dessert and it was so easy, so quick, and sooooo delish! You impress me every single day …..we are all so LUCKY to have YOU and your amazing recipes! I hope you are staying warm in DC, this has been a hellish winter here on the East Coast…..take care, Eve

  60. ioulia kornberg says:

    Hi Katie,

    Can you tell me if the nutrition information listed is just for the filling? Or is it for the filling and a pre-made crust? Or is it for the filling and the healthy chocolate pie crust? I just made it with your crust recipe and I was just wondering if I needed to add the two together.

  61. Nancy says:

    1) Do you add extra sweetener if using plain yogurt? Vanilla yogurt is usually sweetened, but plain is not. Also, can greek yogurt be used?
    2) Have you ever used refined coconut oil instead of virgin in this recipe? I’m wondering if virgin oil would give it too much of a coconut flavor for the peanut butter.

  62. Chelsie says:

    This is an awesome recipe! I used vanilla greek yogurt I think next time I’ll just use plain vanilla yogurt but this is so yummy!

  63. Kristy says:

    Made this tonight. Was a bit skeptical about plain yogurt & peanut butter but it’s delicious & super rich. I’m not vegan so I used 2% plain Greek yogurt & added about 5 scoops of pure Stevia (1/16 tsp each). Used 10 dates but would use more next time as the crust crumbles a bit. A keeper!

  64. Sanne says:

    UHM
    Brought this cake to a friend of mine who loooves peanutbutter. She inhaled it, and so did my kids 😀
    Katie, you’re a genious!

  65. Mylene says:

    I found this recipe and drooled a little and was going to share it on my Facebook cooking page, but can’t bring myself to do it.

    Honey is an animal product. It’s not that “strict vegans” don’t consume honey. Regular vegans don’t consume honey. If they do, they’re no more vegan than if they’d consumed dairy, eggs or animal flesh. It’s not a vegan option and our presenting it as such really confuses things.

    http://www.vegetus.org/honey/honey.htm

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      The recipe specifically lists vegan options that you can use…

      1. Mylene says:

        I saw that, thanks. That wasn’t my point. Honey was described as something “strict vegans” won’t eat. I was just pointing out that your ordinary ol’ garden variety of vegan won’t eat it, either, since it’s an animal product. Honey is no different from dairy, eggs, meat, et al.

        In the recipe FAQs, Katie states that all of her recipes are vegan, so it seemed to send out a confusing message to have honey listed as an option, since it’s not suitable for vegans.

  66. Jess says:

    This looks delicious! Could you use Greek yogurt instead as that is what I have on hand?

  67. Anna says:

    This came out FABULOUS!

    Words cannot even describe how good it is.

  68. Alex says:

    Made this last night and it’s almost HALF GONE! How did that happen? Ha! 😉 😉

  69. Jen says:

    How do you think this would turn out substituting reconstituted peanut butter powder for the nut butter?

  70. Elaine says:

    I made this and froze it and it is like Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie! Delicious! Also, wondering if you can make the healthy crust nut free by using oats and seeds? Anyone tried it?

  71. roshni says:

    Hi, do you think i could use soya yoghurt in this as i am vegan

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Katie is actually a vegan as well. Yes, soy yogurt will work in all her recipes.

  72. Jordyn Senger says:

    This is my second time making this pie and I LOVE it! Peanut butter is definitely a favorite of mine, and I would sooner eat this than a Reese’s peanut butter cup! It’s so rich and delicious, you can’t even tell it’s healthy :) My dad thought it was a peanut butter cheesecake, he was surprised when I told him it was just peanut butter and yogurt 😛

  73. Megan says:

    I just made this pie. I couldn’t resist tasting the peanut butter mixture before putting it into the fridge….it was so good! I can’t wait to try it with the chocolate topping and your chocolate crust! :-) Thanks for the recipe!

  74. Kirsti says:

    Wow. That’s all there really is to say about this recipe because it’s A-mazing! My boyfriend and parents couldn’t believe it’s vegan, and frankly, neither can I.
    I halved this recipe and instead of making it in to a pie I poured the filling in to small ramekins. It set no problem! I also used coconut yogurt (coyo brand) and melted vegan choc chips for the ganache bit. What a recipe. Thank you, Katie!

  75. Marni says:

    I just made this as a Father’s Day treat – it’s setting up in the fridge right now. However, I did have to add double the amount of powdered sugar and more vanilla to try and lessen the tang of the yogurt. I used Chobani yogurt and 2 cups = four containers. …yikes! I also ran out of creamy peanut butter and had to use crunchy, but it all blended creamy. Unfortunately, I overheated my blender! I think I need a Vitamix :( I used a Blendtec.

  76. Debbie says:

    This is SO yummy! You are making a soft food diet bearable. Your web site should be given out to every patient who needs their jaw shut / a soft food diet for any length of time. This pie is truly delicious.

  77. Joie says:

    Do you blend it in the blender or just by hand?

  78. Ashley Mendoza says:

    This pie is DELICOUS!! It tastes better than the unhealthy version my family would make during the holidays. It was easier to make as well. I just love your recipes. :)

  79. Natalie says:

    Has anyone tried this with PB2?

  80. Sam says:

    Trying this today – and please realize that there are many of us out here that would LOVE to use bananas in our recipes but are deathly allergic to them. It’s so bad that I need epinephrine to breathe. And SO many healthy dessert recipes include bananas that we get really excited to find one WE can have! Thanks for this one – so eager to try it!

  81. Anna says:

    I made this pie yesterday morning for breakfast (yes, breakfast) and it was delicious! the crust is a little different but I do like it :) Thanks Katie!
