Peanut Butter Fudge Pie Recipe

Peanut Butter Fudge Pie Recipe

Although I make this fudgy peanut butter pie regularly for luncheons at our church, I've yet to eat a full piece. Usually, there's nothing left but crumbs! With a premade chocolate crust, it's simple to prepare. It travels well, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 1 chocolate crumb crust (8 inches)
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot fudge ice cream topping, divided


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in 1 cup peanut butter and sugar. Fold in 3 cups whipped topping; spoon into crust.
  • 2. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat 2/3 cup hot fudge topping for 30 seconds. Pour over peanut butter layer and spread to edges of crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • 3. Spread remaining whipped topping over pie. Cut into slices. Place the remaining hot fudge topping and peanut butter in two separate plastic bags. Cut a small hole in the corner of each bag; pipe topping and peanut butter over each slice of pie. Yield: 8 servings.

"We made this pie last week, and it hit the spot. Peanut butter and chocolate, what's not to love?"

"Wonderfully good and creamy. I made the filling with real whipping cream instead of frozen whipped topping. We like natural ingredients, and 12 oz of of heavy whipping cream, whipped and sweetened with 5 Tbsp powdered sugar worked well. I will use this recipe again for family gatherings. Completely delicious!"

"When I make this wonderful pie, it is usually for a family picnic or holiday event. I make 2 or 3 at a time a few days ahead and cover and freeze them. Let the pie(s) sit out about 20 minutes before serving and refreeze any leftovers...if there are any!! Always a huge hit. I also will sometimes use crunchy peanut butter. I do not add whipped topping on the top, I just drizzle melted hot fudge all over. ENJOY!!"
