  • 3 Bags Bud's Best Caco Bite Size Cookies or 1 Package of Oreo's
  • 12 tbsp butter divided
  • 2 16 oz. Jars Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 3-31/2 C Powdered Sugar
  • 8 oz. heavy cream
  • 12 oz. bag of Nestle Semi-Sweet Morsels


  • Using a food processor pulse cookies until crumbs.
  • In a large bowl place cookie crumbs along with 8 oz. of melted butter, mix until combined.
  • Using a spring foam pan (or any pan really!) place cookie crust mixture in a even layer. Using a glass to pack in the crumbs for a nice uniformed crust.
  • Place pan into refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  • While the crust is chillin' mix peanut butter and remaining 4 oz. of tbsp of softened butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add in 1/2 c of powdered sugar at a time until you get the consistency you desire. If you want a drier and sweeter filling, add more powdered sugar.
  • In a large bowl heat up heavy cream for 1 minute in microwave, remove.
  • Place semi-sweet morsels into the heavy cream and allow the chocolate to melt. It will look funny half way through, but, keep mixing it will thicken and darken up.
  • Place pan onto flat surface, spoon peanut butter mixture into pie crust and spread evenly. You want to leave crust for the ganache and a little extra, so don't place the peanut butter mixture to the top of the crust.
  • Pour half the ganache mixture over the top of the peanut butter mixture, spread evenly.
  • Refrigerator the No Bake Peanut Butter Pie for a minimum of an hour.
