Creating a Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie is like crafting a slice of heaven for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. This indulgent dessert combines the beloved flavors of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup into a large pie format, perfect for sharing… or not! Let’s dive into how you can make this delectable treat.


For the Crust:

  • 2 ½ cups chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Peanut Butter Filling:

  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Topping:

  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream


Prepare the Crust:

  1. Mix the chocolate cookie crumbs with the melted butter until well combined.
  2. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish, creating a thick, even layer.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.

Make the Peanut Butter Filling:

  1. Beat the peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy. This can take about 3-5 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed.
  2. Spread the filling evenly over the chilled crust, smoothing out the top with a spatula.
  3. Refrigerate the pie for about 1 hour to set the peanut butter layer.

Add the Chocolate Topping:

  1. Heat the heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until it begins to gently simmer. Do not let it boil.
  2. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips in a bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes without stirring.
  3. Stir gently until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the chocolate ganache over the peanut butter layer, spreading it out to cover the entire surface.
  5. Chill the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours, or until the ganache is set and the pie is firm.


  • Remove the pie from the refrigerator about 10-15 minutes before you plan to serve it. This will make slicing easier.
  • Slice with a sharp knife, cleaning the blade between cuts for clean slices.
  • Serve and enjoy the blissful combination of peanut butter and chocolate in every bite!


  • For a crunchier texture, consider adding chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or roasted peanuts into the peanut butter filling.
  • Ensure all ingredients, especially the heavy cream and peanut butter, are at room temperature before starting to make the mixing process smoother.
  • For an extra decorative touch, garnish the pie with mini Reese’s cups, peanut butter chips, or a drizzle of melted peanut butter before serving.

This Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie is a show-stopping dessert that’s sure to impress at any gathering, combining the irresistible flavors of chocolate and peanut butter in one decadent pie.
