What makes this pie so delicious is how it starts from the bottom up. You easily make a pie crust by crushing Oreo cookies (which everyone loves) and just place it in the freezer. It gives it a great chocolate crunchy base before adding your filling. 

The filling is made in a standing mixer (or you can use a 9-speed hand mixer) and the ganache is simply made using the microwave. It doesn’t get any easier than this!

How To Make Peanut Butter Pie With Chocolate Ganache Topping

Using a food processor or ziplock bag and rolling pin, grind up the Oreo cookies until crushed. Mix in the melted butter. Press the crust into the pie dish and place into the freezer.

Peanut Butter Fillings directions: Using a standing mixer, beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered
sugar and vanilla until creamy and combined.

In a separate bowl,  using a hand mixer, whip until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipped cream into the powdered sugar. Remove crust from freezer and pour the filling inside. Spread the filling evenly in the crust. Place back into the fridge overnight.

For the Chocolate Ganache: Using a small pot, pour the heavy whipping cream and place over medium
to high heat. Once the heavy cream starts to simmer, pour over the chocolate chips and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.

Gently pour over the peanut butter pie and smooth evenly. Scoop the peanut butter into a small microwave dish and heat for 30 seconds to soften it. Scoop the peanut butter into the disposable piping bag. Cut the tip off and drizzle over the ganache.

Pipe whipped cream around the edge of the pie. Cut and serve!
