No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Butterfinger Pie with a chocolate OREO crust, creamy peanut butter filling with Butterfinger candy bars, chocolate ganache, and topped with fresh whipped cream and Butterfinger. The best creamy Butterfinger pie recipe!
I am obsessed with Butterfinger candy bars. I love them in pie, cookies, and ice cream. I wanted to create a creamy Butterfinger Pie filled with chocolate, peanut butter, and a lot of Butterfingers! This pie is perfectly decadent, rich, and creamy.
The beauty of this Chocolate Butterfinger Pie is that it is no-bake so it is perfect when you don't want to crank up your oven.
It all starts with a homemade chocolate OREO crust made with OREO cookies and butter. The filling is a light, fluffy peanut butter mousse studded with Butterfinger candy bars.
It is topped with a creamy chocolate ganache made with chocolate and heavy cream. It is all topped off with sweetened whipped cream and Butterfinger candy bar pieces. My Butterfinger candy bar lovers are going to love this pie!
Peanut Butter Butterfinger Pie Ingredients:

Peanut Butter Mousse Filling:

- Powdered Sugar

- Heavy Cream, whipped

How to make Butterfinger Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie:
- Start by making the OREO cookie crust by pulsing the OREO cookies and melted butter in a food processor. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. This Emile Henry Pie Dish is my favorite. I also love their Ruffled Pie Dish. You can also use a springform panif you would like to remove it easily from the pan. Place in freezer while you make the filling.
- Make the peanut butter filling by whipping together softened cream cheese and creamy peanut butter for 5 minutes until it is fluffy and creamy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla.
- In another bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Once it is whipped, fold or mix into the peanut butter filling, making sure not to overmix and deflate the whipped cream. Fold in chopped Butterfinger candy bars.
- Pour into chilled pie crust or place in the freezer to chill for at least 25-30 minutes. It is important to let it harden before pouring the warm chocolate ganache on top.
- Make the chocolate ganache by melting chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Pour the ganache over chilled peanut butter filling and place it back in the freezer to allow the ganache to set.
- Top with chopped Butterfinger Candy Bars all over the pie. Keep chilled until ready to serve. Cut into slices.

I always suggest using full-fat cream cheese in this recipe because of its creamy texture.
You can prepare this pie several days ahead of time. You can keep it covered in the freezer or refrigerator.
To store leftover pie, keep it covered in the refrigerator or freezer.

This Butterfinger pie was amazing! Extremely rich and decadent, so a tiny piece goes a loooong way. Great for feeding lots of people. Everyone loved it! 🙂
I'm a 30 year old bachelor who stumbled upon your blog one night at 2 or 3am. I couldn't figure out why I was having such a hard time falling asleep, that is until I remembered signing up to bring cookies for the lunch at work the next day. The stores were closed so their I was looking for a recipe and baking for the first time.
Fast forward a few months later and my tiny apartment kitchen has transformed into a bakery turning out delicious sweets anytime I'm at home. People just show up now expecting desert. But thank goodness for them. As they save me from the guilt and loathing that follows polishing off a dozen cookies by yourself.
Your recipes are simple and delicious. I love everything I've attempted so far, but your ricotta pancakes were life changing. I get the same answer every time I cook them for someone, "you need to sell these right now!" I turn away shyly, as if I'm blushing, but the truth is I'm snickering queitely to myself, because if only they knew how easy they were to make!
Oh and like always, the butterfinger pie was a major hit at the Christmas party. You've probably gotten me at least one promotion so far, but it's likely a lot more!
