Steps To Make No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie:

Combine these crumbs with melted butter in a bowl then firmly press the mixture into your pie plate to create a crust. Place this in the refrigerator, for 30 minutes to chill.
Step 2: Using a hand or stand mixer whip your heavy cream with powdered sugar until it forms stiff peaks that resemble fluffy clouds. Set this aside for now.
Step 3: Now let’s focus on the star of our recipe; Beat the cream cheese until it becomes perfectly smooth and silky. Incorporate the peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract, into the mix. Continue beating until you achieve a creamy and dreamy texture. Gently fold in the whipped cream using a spatula ensuring everything is well combined. Spoon this peanut butter paradise onto your chilled crust.
Step 4: For some crunchiness sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the pie. Add extra flair by drizzling chocolate and butterscotch syrup if you’re feeling fancy. Allow this masterpiece to chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours; however, if you simply cannot wait any longer feel free to pop it into the freezer instead! Trust me when I say that patience will be rewarded with deliciousness!
