We all know that we should be drinking more water. Like constantly drinking water. Yet, how do I put this? Sometimes, water can be a little boring!

As a mom, there is so much to keep up with, and we really don’t want to add another thing to our ‘to do’ list. Logging our water consumption is something most of us just don’t have time for. #aintnobodygottimeforthat

However, when I drink water, I just feel better! My skin looks better,and I have way more energy.

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

To make the crust we need to get those cookies crushed.

My son likes to push the buttons on our blender, but if you are having a particularly stressful day, I highly recommend throwing those cookies in a Ziplock, and go to town wacking them with a rolling pin. 😉

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Now you will melt one of the sticks of butter, and mix it in with the crushed cookies. Add to your pie container, and press to make the crust.

I am absolutely loving this pie pan by Le Creuset!

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Put the pie crust in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes for the crust to set.

Now it’s time to make the delicious filling!

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

You will add the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and 1 stick of softened butter to your stand mixer, or a large bowl if using a hand mixer.

Then, you will need to refrain from face planting directly into this bowl of amazing yumminess! 😉

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Spread the peanut butter mixture onto your pie crust, and place back in the freezer for another 10-15 minutes.

Now you can absolutely leave the pie just like this, and it is wonderful!

But, I like to take it to another level, and top it with some delicious melted chocolate!

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

There is a time and place for everything, but this mama has the perfect ‘don’t want to use a double boiler’ hack.

Take your milk, and zap it in the microwave until you see some good bubbles. Usually about 90 seconds.

Then add your chocolate, let it set about a minute, and stir.

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

See…no double boiler needed! You’re welcome! 😉

The Best No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Top the pie with the chocolate, and place in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does. Be sure to get you a slice mama, because trust me…this pie doesn’t last long in our house!
