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.

      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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!!

  3. 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?

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

    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!!

    I have been making a variation if this for about 12 years now and it is a home run EVERY time. If you are pressed for time you can also buy the chocolate graham cracker pie crust. Love this website. Keep them coming!

    I accidentally bought the mint Jo Jos from Trader Joes, but it gave the dessert a nice holiday twist, and it went over really well at my family’s annual Christmas party!

    I made this for my niece’s 13th birthday last September, and I am planning to make this again for Easter this year! It is so good and not a “sweet” dessert, it’s just heavenly! Thanks for this keeper recipe, I will be making it many more times as my family all loves it!
