My mom was the queen of the kitchen in our household, she loved the smiles and the full bellies when we were all finished. She always included us in the kitchen, and my siblings and I would lick the beaters, the bowl and the spoon while trying to patiently wait until those fresh baked goods came out of the oven.
She was known for her famous Peanut Butter Pie that was requested at all of the family gatherings and was always a childhood favorite of mine. Her secret and what made this pie better than just any other Peanut Butter Pie was the crust, which was made from Little Debbie Nutty Buddy Bars. The chocolate, peanut butter, and crisp blend to make the most irresistible flavor ever. It’s ‘The Taste You Never Outgrow’, I still keep a little stash that I like to sneak for myself when the kids aren’t looking. I know every mother does it!
My brother, sister, and I always tried sneaking some Nutty Buddy Bars off the counter while my mother would prepare the pie. And now with two little ones of my own, I catch my kids doing the same exact thing. They love licking the spoons after mixing the creamy peanut butter filling. And when they visit their Nana the first thing they go for is her little stash of Little Debbie baked goods.
NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER NUTTY BUDDY PIE
The pie has a cream cheese peanut butter filling, that goes perfectly on top of the Little Debbie Nutty Buddy pie crust. The best part about this pie is that it is a total crowd pleaser and won’t last long at all. That coupled with the fact that it can be made completely ahead of time makes it a perfect go-to recipe for easy entertaining.
8 Little Debbie Nutty Buddy Bars
4 tbsp melted Butter
1 cup Peanut Butter
8 oz softened Cream Cheese
1 cup Powdered Sugar
8 oz package Cool Whip thawed
Place Nutty Buddy Bars in a food processor and pulse until the consistency of small crumbs. Add the melted butter and stir with a fork to combine.
Press into a pie pan and place it in the fridge while you finish the rest of the pie.
Combine peanut butter and cream cheese and beat until it’s combined. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Pour into the crust and smooth the top. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight.
