Oreo and Peanut Butter Pie Recipe

Home > Everywhere > Recipes
Published August 9th 2012

Winter is all about putting on the kilos and indulging in rich desserts, but it feels 10 times better when you actually make it yourself.

Now I'm not much of a cook, but I've recently been experimenting in the kitchen for the sake of my future husband.

This recipe was given to me by my partner's mother about six months ago, and I have finally found the time (and built up the courage) to try it out. It's so simple and takes very little time to prepare.

Here's a complete step-by-step recipe that'll make you feel like a true master chef once you're done:

20 oreos (or other chocolate cream biscuits)
175g unsalted butter
400g crunchy peanut butter
175g icing sugar, sifted
200g good-quality dark chocolate, chopped (I used Cadbury)

What To Do:

1. Finely crush the biscuits in a food processor

2. Melt 75g of butter and combine with biscuits

3. Press the mixture into the base and sides of a 24cm loose-bottomed tart pan and chill for 30 minutes until firm

4. Combine peanut butter and icing sugar in a bowl and spread into the tart base (for this part, I found it much easier to use my hands when combining the peanut butter and icing)

5. Place chocolate and remaining 100g of butter into a clean bowl over a pan of simmering water (don't let the bowl touch the water). Stir until the chocolate and butter has melted, then cool slightly.

6. Spread over the peanut butter layer and chill for 30 minutes until firm.

Now you're ready to plate up and treat your visitors to a slice of heaven. Enjoy!

Oh my god, I have to make this. Better have the ambo's on speed dial though, it looks deadly.

It really is deadly. I think I put on about 5 kilos once consumed, but it's definitely worth it! ;)
