How to Make Peanut Butter Cream Pie

Preparation. Start by preparing the crust. Combine the chocolate cookie crumbs with melted butter and press the mixture into a pie plate to form a crust. Place it in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up.

Creamy Layer. While the crust is setting, prepare the creamy peanut butter layer. In a large bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, creamy peanut butter, and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping until well combined.

Add In Mixture. Once the crust is ready, spread the creamy peanut butter mixture over it, creating a smooth layer. Sprinkle half of the chopped peanuts over this layer, pressing them gently into the mixture.

Fluffy Layer. Crown your pie with the remaining whipped topping, creating a fluffy layer. Let it chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or for the best results, overnight.

Serve and enjoy! Before serving, drizzle the chocolate syrup over the top, and if desired, the caramel sauce. Sprinkle the remaining peanuts on top. Slice and savor every bite of this decadent dessert!
