My children might love peanut butter pie more than they love me. It’s something they beg me to make all the time! Turning the pie into bite-sized squares is a huge hit because we can just grab a couple on the go. Not only is it easier to eat on the run, but it’s easier to store in the freezer this way!
Below you can watch how I made them. Then, just keep reading for all the details.
The bites are perfect for snacking, but they are also so much easier to display and serve at a party. Be careful, though, because you will run out of bites fast!
The Amazing No-Bake Crust
For the crust, I combined crushed Teddy Grahams with a little butter and sugar. It is a delicious little no-bake crust that adds just the right texture. You can experiment with different flavored Grahams but I just used what I had on hand, the honey flavor.
The Dreamy Filling
Next comes the peanut butter pie filling. It’s all from scratch. Whipping cream is beaten until light ad fluffy and then combined with cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla. There is no baking involved.
The crust and filling are placed into silicone square molds and placed in the freezer to firm up. I used these molds made by Wilton, but you can really use anything similar.
After the squares set, you can remove them from the molds and add the extras!
First comes the chocolate coating… yum!! Each square is dipped in melted chocolate. I used Wilton’s Light Cocoa candy melts because they are so easy to work with. Feel free to swap out for different chocolate. Dark chocolate would definitely work here.
I recommend only working with 1/4 to 1/2 of your bites at a time and leave the others in the freezer until you are ready to work with them. The firmer the bites are, the easier they are to dip.
The Over-The-Top Toppings
Next, while the chocolate is still melted sprinkle finely chopped Reece Cups over the bite. When making these around Halloween I just use whatever leftover candy would taste good here. You can totally get creative. Snickers, Twix, and Milky Ways are all good options!
Lastly, sprinkle each bite with a little bit of coarse sea salt.
Something very important to point out is that the chocolate will set very fast because the filling is so cold. Only dip one bite into the chocolate at a time and then immediately sprinkle that bite with toppings.
Be careful to place your bites in the freezer in a single layer with each bite spaced apart from the others. After about 30 minutes you can move the bites to an airtight container or a zip-top bag. Keep the bites in the freezer until you are ready to eat them.
Happy Baking! xoxo, Katie
Bite sized peanut butter pie is coated in chocolate and topped with Reece Cups and sea salt. Keep them in the freezer and grab one whenever you get a craving!
- 1 cup crushed Teddy Graham cookies I used honey flavored and crushed with food processor
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 4 tsp sugar
- 6 oz room temperature cream cheese
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar plus 2 tbsp seperated
- 3/4 cup whipping cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1-2 packages light cocoa candy melts or prefered melted chocolate
- finely chopped reece cups
- coarse sea salt
Beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar for 2-3 minutes until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, beat cream with whisk attachment until it thickens.
Add sugar and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.
Fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture until fully combined.
Set aside until ready to assemble your bites.
Stir together Teddy Graham crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.
Pack about 1 1/2 teaspoon of crust mixture into the bottom of each square mold.
Spoon or pipe the filling over the compacted crust. Smooth and level the tops with an offset spatula.
Place molds in freezer for about 20 minutes.
Remove the frozen sqaures from the molds.
Dip each sqaure in melted chocolate and immedietly sprinkle with chopped peanut butter cups and sea salt. You may keep half of the squares in the freezer while you coat the other half in chocolate so they stay cold. They are easier to dip in the chocolate this way.
Store the peanut butter bites in the freezer or refridgerator.
