Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie

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.

Melissa @ Treats With a Twist

Oh my that looks amazing! And the sloppiest desserts are usually the best 🙂


Oh my that looks delicious! I’m definitely going to have to try that! 🙂


I am from New Zealand and have just recently stumbled across your scrummy website! This is awesome – we dont really bake this decadently over here – but I have printed off many of your recipes to try! YUM! Thanks so much for starting this site!


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.

Julie @ Table for Two

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!!

Averie @ Averie Cooks

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.


I feel slightly better knowing we’re not the only ones walking around like that at three in the afternoon. 🙂


Peanut butter pies are the best and this one looks delicious and simple!


Holy cow that looks amazing!!! Messy is how we like it here 😀

Sharon Chaffee

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?

I’m a pretty messy person in general so this pie is totally meant for me! I know it.

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

You really are trying to kill me. This…this…is amazing. The messier the better. Makes me feel better about my kid…my house… 🙂

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

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 need to make this. I just gained 5 lbs

Lauri @ MyPinnedLife

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!

Erin @ Texanerin Baking

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 actually think that looks great! Bet it tastes even better though 😀

Nick @ Beardybaking

I’d love to try this! Unfortunately, my boyfriend has a peanut butter hatred, so I’ll have to find some test subjects!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet

Perfect slices are so completely overrated! I’ll take some of this, please.

Sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

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.

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

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.” 😉


My belly is still aching from the NYC sweet tour lol……..but I think I NEED this!! and you sold me at no bake!!

Ashton @ Something Swanky

Definitely a keeper! And this doesn’t even look close to sloppy– beautiful pictures! As always 🙂 And I LOVE that glass bowl you have on your KA. I’m gonna have to go find that on Amazon right now!

Lori @ RecipeGirl

Bring on the sloppy. This looks good enough to shove aside my rice cake and slop it on up 🙂


I need a spoon or shovel to dig in!


That is some gorgeous slop there. I’ll take a bowl full.

Brian @ A Thought For Food

Thanks for making me drool all over my computer. I was sitting here, trying to get some work done… and then I come across this gorgeous, ridiculously decadent dessert.


yes–sloppy pies for the win! you make me feel better about my inability to get a perfect slice of anything 🙂


Oh My Word!! I need to unsubscribe for a bit while I am on my Weight Watchers program!! It is soooo tempting when I get the email notice to open it up!! Then I’m in trouble!!


as sloppy as it is, it still looks pretty! and it sounds amazing. oven shmoven, you make amazing treats even with limited resources!

Alison @ Ingredients, Inc.

OMG!! This looks “to die for”

Me And Ny Sweets

OMG!that one looks yummie and creamy and absolutely.amazing!I’m a new follower:-) I hope you have a chance to visit my blog too.



I have to make a conscious effort not to leave a comment that says, “NOM, NOM, NOM” when I come to your blog, lol!

Jen @ Savory Simple

Now that’s a stunner!

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

Messy food is sometimes the best – but this isn’t even messy, just delicious looking and it’s tempting me in a major way 🙂

Jenny Flake

Ok, I need this in front of me asap! Fabulous girl!! xoxo


The messiest desserts are the BEST desserts…all smooshy and melty…LOVE it!! And, my kids look very similar to your description most days…it’s even worse cause we Homeschool so they look that way alllll year LOL! On Sunday we got to church and my 4 year old (whose hair I DID comb) had a band aid stuck in her hair…seriously..

Can’t wait to make this…all for me and all over my pants 🙂

Angelyn @ Everyday Desserts

Oh my, this looks amazing!!


I can taste that pie by just looking at it. Yummy!!!!! thanks Suzanne


Shelly, you’re right. Sometimes you just need to cut loose and let things get a little sloppy. …and eat this pie while you’re doing it!

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl

Shelly, your pictures are just gorgeous! And so is that pie, messy or not. Love!!

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

I can never get the perfect slice, just doesn’t work for me 🙂 So I am all over this. Forget about the chocolate and peanut butter amazingness!

Cathy @ Noble Pig

This looks AMAZEballs. Whoa.


I think you just proved that “the sloppier the better” is an awfully good motto to live by. This looks darn good!

Colleen @ What

Messier is definitely better with this one. Holy cow YUM!!


Swoon!! I would take this Sloppy Peanut Butter Pie any day!! 🙂

Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker

Looooooooove this. I would totally eat it from the pan with a spoon.

Carla @ Carlas Confections

Personally, I like messy better! And this is beautiful!!! Peanut Butter Pie is one of my favorite desserts ever!

Sophie in the Kitchen

This looks so good! I love PB 🙂
