(Sweet Saturdays) No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Happy Sweet Saturday to you!! I want to take a minute and thank you for visiting my little corner of the food blog world. 

I share both sweet and savory recipes here, but I'm kicking off a new series today called Sweet Saturdays in an effort to share something sweet on Saturdays :)

To start things off, THIS is a creamy, dreamy peanut butter pie that you really gotta try. 

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

1 ½ c. creamy peanut butter (your favorite brand)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 ½ tsp. vanilla
15 oz. container of frozen dessert topping, thawed
1 prepared chocolate cookie pie crust (Oreo)
Chocolate sprinkles, optional

Ganache Topping
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. butter
1 c. Half and Half (or heavy cream)

In large bowl of stand mixer, mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy.

Add peanut butter and vanilla and continue mixing until well incorporated.

Remove bowl from mixer and fold in dessert topping.

Pour mixture into pie crust and spread evenly. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles, if desired. Refrigerate at least an hour to set.

Meanwhile, pour chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and Half and Half and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and cook for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.

Drizzle over pie as desired.
