Peanut Butter Cup Pie Pops Recipe

Disclosure: Pillsbury provided me with the pie crust to facilitate this pie pop recipe.

Today I’m sharing a peanut butter cup pie pops recipe. A pie pop is a dessert on a stick. If you are a follower, you already know that I have a thing for peanut butter and chocolate, and Reese’s peanut butter cups recipes make me happy! I’ve made Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Bars and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn. So, when I needed a pie pop filling, peanut butter cups were a natural fit!

Peanut Butter Cup Pie Pops
I’ve seen pie pops floating around online for some time now and have always wanted to try making them because eating a dessert on a stick is so much fun! When Pillsbury offered to send me a couple of coupons for pie crust so that I could come up a delicious pie pops recipe, I said of course! Then, I just had to come up with a filling idea. Most of the pie pops I’ve seen have the traditional pie fillings like fruit and nuts. I wanted to do something different. My favorite pies to order at restaurants are French Silk and Peanut Butter Cup but those are both cold fillings that are added to a baked pie crust. Then, it dawned on me…peanut butter cup pie could be made using Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and I wouldn’t even have to make a filling; it would be ready to go from the package!

Pillsbury Crust Pie PopsI started with some ready made Pillsbury pie crust and cut out circles. Put a little flour down first. (As you can see in the photo, I didn’t use a little flour and it ended up being too much because the dough didn’t want to stick together when I was trying to seal it.) I used a 2 7/8″ circle biscuit cutter and it was the perfect size for the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Squish the extra dough together, roll it out again and continue cutting out circles. I was able to get 14 circles out of the crust.

How To Make Pie PopsPush a lollipop stick all the way into a peanut butter cup without going out the opposite side. By inserting so far into the peanut butter cup, it will make the pie pops more sturdy. The peanut butter cup goes face down on one of the circles of crust and it is topped with another circle.

Seal Pie Pop CrustFirst, press the edges of dough together with your fingers. Then, use a lollipop stick to seal the two crust circles together.

Brush Egg WhitePut the pie pops on a baking sheet and brush with a beaten egg white.

  1. How long are these good for? Or how far in advance could you make them for a party?

    • Hi Kerrie-
      I think that pie tastes the best when it is fresh, so I would suggest making them close to the party. Otherwise, it might work to make them and freeze them. Happy Baking!

  2. Do you think I could try with pre made roll of cookie dough?? What do you think I would need to adjust??

    • That is a great idea, Sarah! I’m not sure what you would need to adjust since I haven’t made them that way. I think you would want to turn the heat down to 350 and bake them for more like 10 to 12 minutes but just watch them to see when they look done. I would love to hear how they turn out! Happy Baking! ~Tonia

  3. These look amazing! When you brush with the egg white, do you brush both sides or just the top? Thanks! I’m going to try to make them this weekend.

  4. Oh my tonia! These are just scrumptious! I could eat a whole batch myself! I just made them today and theyre the best!

  8. Could I make these using homemade pie crust? I prefer homemade. Hope you get this!

    • Hi Naomi,
      Yes, you could most definitely use homemade pie crust! I just like taking the short cuts but homemade would be delicious!
      Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh My Tonia all I can say is that we MUST have been seperated at birth! I am over the moon for Reese’s peanut butter and chocolate. I am going to have to try these babies out real soon. Have you ever tried Reese’s Fast Breaks? I would love to use them in a recipe of some kind. Maybe I will try using them instead of the PB cups . They would just be a little smaller.
    Thanks again. :)

    • Thanks Rose! No, I’ve never tried Reese’s Fast Breaks…I’m going to have to go look them up!
