Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie

funsweets

Sometimes the messiest things are the best.

I mean, I know the benefits to a good picture.

No one wants to see what your kids REALLY look like.

They want to see your kids with their hair combed, clean clothes and socks with no holes.

But let’s be real.

On any given day you will find my kids walking around my house in soccer shorts, no shirt and Cheerios stuck in their uncombed hair…at 3:00 in the afternoon.

I mean, it is summer and all, so it’s a little more acceptable, but you knowww.

 

So basically the same thing applies with desserts.  Or really food in general.

If it’s all sloppy and messy, apparently it’s not as appealing.

Like what if I made a cake here and posted what an ACTUAL slice looked like?  Not the perfect slice that takes you 17 minutes to get from pan to plate, because you don’t want any crumbs or icing smears…

Because if you had an icing smear…gasp!  It wouldn’t look delicious.

Well, I am here today to break the mold.

This “pie” isn’t perfect.  It’s actually not even a pie.
I mean, there is kind of a crust…is that the defining characteristic of a pie?

Well, whatever, I’m calling it a pie.

Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie.
PhotobucketThis whole thing is a pretty easy situation.

There’s no baking, which is awesome…

Start with a 9×13 pan and pour in some melted butter…
PhotobucketThen add in some crushed Oreo cookies…cream and all. Stir it up with the butter…
PhotobucketThen press it evenly into the bottom of the pan.
PhotobucketMake some whipped cream and set that aside…
PhotobucketThe mix together some sugar, cream cheese and peanut butter.
PhotobucketFold your whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture until smooth and even and spread it over your crust…
PhotobucketThen if you WANT, drizzle it with chocolate syrup. I used the chocolate sauce I made HERE, but feel free to use any chocolate sauce you like.
PhotobucketThen chill it for about an hour and eat it.
PhotobucketIt’s not pretty, but it’s delicious.

If looks could kill… well, uh, I’d be super dead because those drizzly pictures are gorgeous. Way better than some “perfect” cake slice. Whatev, gimme a spoon and let’s get dirty.

Me and the pie. Not me and you. Juuust wanted to clarify.

this looks amazing!! i love the simplicity of it and how “messy” it looks – it makes it look more authentic and something like you’d have as a childhood treat or something that you’d make with your mom…love your creativity with every dish!!

This is perfect for summer. There is nothing wrong with some messy pics (and these are NOT messy!!) – they’re gorgeous. But yes, the messiest/sloppiest food is usually the best.

Cream cheese, PB, Oreos, butter…awesomeness.

OK this look ridiculous…and delicious! Can’t wait to try it.

But one question (and I hope I’m not such a drip that I missed it) how much butter do you melt for the crust?

My brain read that as “sloopy peanut butter pie” at first and I got excited thinking I found another buckeye football fan, getting ready for football season with a spirited peanut butter and chocolate treat inspired by the buckeye candies. But regardless, I still love this as a sloppy pie!

luv what you do

My mouth is watering. I would love to dig a spoon straight into this pie. It reminds me of my favorite oreo PB pie recipe, but I never make my own crust : )

I love that this dessert is sloppy. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, your dessert comes out sloppy. This dessert doesn’t require perfection, but the combo of chocolate and PB are perfect in my mind!

I’m a huge slob so I’m all over anything with sloppy in the name. It looks so creamy! And I love that there’s no baking involved. And I love the drizzle on top!

I don’t even try with the perfect cake slice thing. I just cut a piece like normal and put it in a plate and call it a day. I admire the bloggers with perfect cake slices, but that’s just not me.

I so gave up on pretty pictures, things still taste good even if the picture looks crummy. But then again, I have like the crappiest camera ever, and that is my excuse.

This dessert looks plenty pretty to me! I don’t think you can go wrong with no-bake chocolate and peanut butter.

Also, you can get around any aesthetic issues by saying it’s “rustic.” 😉
