Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is an easy no bake dessert with three layers… cookie crust, peanut butter cheesecake and creamy chocolate gelato (with peanut butter cups stuffed inside!).
This is a sponsored post for HemisFares™ brand that is available exclusively at Kroger family of stores. All opinions are honest and 100% my own.
Chocolate and peanut butter have been one of the pillars of Tastes of Lizzy T since we started this little website over 4 years ago. Just when you think we couldn’t possibly come up with another way to combine the classic flavors of chocolate and peanut butter, we surprise you. Oops…we did it again.
This frozen chocolate peanut butter pie is just the refreshing pie you need because it is no bake, cold, easy and can be made ahead of time so it is available to pull out of the freezer for those last minute summer pool guests.
And also..this sweet frozen pie has beautiful, mouth-watering layers. Just look at them…
Let’s talk about the layers for a minute.
The base of the frozen chocolate peanut butter pie recipe is a simply crushed chocolate sandwich cookies with a little butter mixed in for holding power. No need to bake this crust!
The next layer is a rich combination of creamy peanut butter (feel free to use crunchy if you’d like!), cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped topping. Throw a few chopped peanut butter cups on top of this layer. Because there is never too much peanut butter.
The top layer is creamy HemisFares chocolate gelato. Have you seen this in Kroger yet?
I had only had gelato one time before, but instantly fell in love with its dense, rich flavor. I knew that topping this frozen pie with silky, smooth HemisFares chocolate gelato would be THE way to finish off this dessert recipe.
If you like trying new foods from around the globe, head to Kroger and look for their HemisFares line of fine foods. They have pastas, oils, gelato and more, sourced directly from the region it comes from and imported to Kroger stores. This Cioccolato Gelato is Find #51 and comes from Sicily, Italy. Italians have spent hundreds of years perfecting the art of gelato making. And I’m thankful I get to benefit from their hard work by enjoying this velvety, sweet, cool dessert.
You’ll have a hard time not devouring the chocolate gelato, but trust me, you’ll want to keep it for making this easy summer dessert recipe.
Could you substitute real whipped cream for the fake (Cool Whip) stuff? Or would it not freeze properly.
This pie is seriously amazing! I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it. Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combination in the whole world. Thanks for this awesome recipe!
Sweet heavens I’m in love with this!! My husband is crazy about peanut butter so this is happening asap!
Tried this and it was very simple and, most of all, delicious. Gelato was a bit expensive but chocolate ice cream worked very well.
What about, could you use chocolate pudding instead of gelato? No chocolate gelato around here.
The best pie but I don’t no where can I find the gelato!!
So, no Kroger here. Any other options for the gelato?
Made this for 4th of July to have for dessert and everyone loved it! It was so easy to get together and perfect to cool us down on this hot florida day! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Delicious!
Can this be made couple weeks ahead of time, freeze and
then remove from freezer hour or so before serving?
Thanks looks yummy!
I would love to try that but i don’t like peanut butter sorry but it sure looks good yummy betty
