This week I baked you a Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie. Watch the video showing you how to make this Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie, then scroll to the bottom of this post and print out the recipe so you can make it at home!
It’s been a long time since I’ve whipped up one of these bad boys! Finally returning to my baking roots, I made a spin-off of my Twix Bar Cheesecake Pie, which has stayed unchanged since 2011.
I changed things up a bit this time and made (drum roll please…) the Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie. I only altered a few things from my Twix Bar Cheesecake Pie, but they each have their own unique flavor! Stay tuned to find out the changes I made… and more yummy pie pictures from Pi Day!
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie
Okay so first let’s list some of the similarities the pies have… chocolate syrup, extreme tastiness, stunning appearance, etc. The Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie is like my Twix Bar Cheesecake Pie smashed together with my Peanut Butter Pie. Geez… Is it just me or does that sound like the best pie you’ve ever seen/tasted?
This is some of the best batter I’ve ever tasted. I mean, cookie dough is great, but this took it to a whole new level.
Pi Day was this past Saturday. Our school celebrated by making shirts and selling them. If anyone knows about pi, it’s my uncle. He knows an astounding 100 digits of pi. I ask two questions… How? Why? Memorizing 20 digits would be super hard for me! I know 15 digits already- 3.14159265358979. How much do you know?
What better way to celebrate Pi Day than with a kick-butt pie? This pie will blow your socks off! Peanut Butter Cups? Yum. Cheesecake? Mmmm. Pie? Yes please!!! If you like all of these flavors, this is the perfect pie for you! Surprisingly, lots of my friends don’t like cheesecake. How??? Cheesecake is amazing. I bet that if you try this recipe, all of you cheesecake-haters will change your minds!
Mmmhhhmmmmmm. That is what I call a Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie! This pie is super easy to make. The hardest part of the entire recipe is… well, nothing is really difficult.
This pie is pretty rich, so it lasted a few days in my house (and maybe the fact that my Dad was only around for only about two slices). It tastes like no other pie in the world. You have the taste of Peanut Butter Pie, but then the occasional bit of chocolate from the peanut butter cups and chocolate syrup. It is for sure in my top 10 desserts I’ve ever made.
Show some real Pi Day spirit by making this pie and you will love it. Enjoy! 🙂
And even a kid can celebrate Pi Day with an epic pie… Like Me!

Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie
- 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs
- ⅓ cup granulated white sugar
- 6 tablespoons (¾ stick) butter, softened and slightly melted
- 12 ounces (1½ packages) cream cheese, at room temperature
- ⅔ cup creamy peanut butter
- ½ cup granulated white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 10 snack-size Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, frozen
- chocolate syrup
- 6 snack-size Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
- Prepare the crust: In a medium bowl, use a rubber spatula to combine the ingredients until well-mixed. Use a spoon to press the crumbs up the side of a 9-inch pie plate, and use your hand to press down the bottom. Freeze until firm.
- Prepare the filling: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar and eggs until well-combined. Stir in the peanut butter cups. Scrape the filling into the frozen crust. Bake until set- 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool.
- When totally cool, drizzle with chocolate and more chopped peanut butter cups. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Hi! I'm new to baking and am curious why the peanut butter cups should be frozen. Looking forward to trying out this recipe. Thank you!

I just took this out of the oven for my daughter’s birthday. I did not pay attention to you using the very little Reese cups. I bought the bag that said snack size and used 10 of them. A whole lot of chocolate there. Not sure if it will change how it cooks. And I used a prepared Graham cracker crust so I hope it turns out.

Do you cut up the pb cups that are stirred into the batter? The recipe doesn't specify. I like to follow a recipe exactly the first time, so I left them whole and it turned out great.

I think I chopped them, but since they're snack size then it's okay to leave them whole.

Have just made this for my lads its in the oven as i type we dont have graham crackers as im in UK so have used digestive bicuites and left out the sugar for the base. Do the pb cups have to be chopped for the filling as it doesnt say so left them whole but have got the topping ones cut in half .
