Can you freeze Peanut Butter Pie?
Yes, you can! This pie is perfect to make ahead of time. When I am meal planning for the week and I know I have friends coming over for dinner, I will make this pie and freeze it.
I just make sure that it is sealed really well and the pie comes out perfectly. I set it out about and hour before serving and it slices perfectly.
You don’t have to freeze it, in fact we usually just let it chill in the refrigerator and then have it for dessert. But you can definitely serve it either way.

Tip for No Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie:
It is easier to cut and crunch the candy bar after it has been refrigerated for awhile. If you are in a hurry, you could probably put it in the freezer for a minute or two.
You can also make your own whipped cream. Learn how to make whipped cream here. It’s very easy and tastes amazing. You will love how easy whipping cream takes shape and turns into whipped cream.
Reese’s Pie Variation ideas:
There are so many different variations to try with this recipe. In fact, you could easily make this recipe with different candy bars – Butterfinger Pie, Snickers Pie or even a Health bar pie! This is a great pie to make after Halloween and use up some of the candy your kids get.
You can add a ½ cup of creamy peanut butter into the mixture for even more peanut butter flavor if you prefer. Some people have mixed in powdered sugar. The confectioners sugar makes it creamy, but you definitely don’t need it. You can also drizzle the top with chocolate or caramel syrup
Try using a Oreo crust instead of a graham cracker crust! We love this variation and make it this way a lot.
It really is that simple to make!
I can’t wait to make this for the next family gathering. I often get cool whip and cream cheese on sale so this makes for a very frugal dessert option. This pie is always a hit so you might want to make two. I normally do this if taking it to a family gathering.
I use one of these handy pie carriers and transporting the pie is super easy. This is something I use a lot and it helps prevents spills in the car. It is definitely worth it. They even have thermal pie carriers that will fit an ice pack to keep this pie nice and cool.
Do you like cream cheese?
Cream cheese is one of the main ingredients in this recipe. Some of my kids do not like cream cheese. But even my non cream cheese loving kids, gobbled this pie up! The whipped topping and candy blend together to make this pie filling so creamy and delicious.
