This Peanut Butter Pie recipe uses Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars for the crust. The candy bars are like peanut butter Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies.

Peanut Butter Silk Pie RecipeIt’s no secret that I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. I’ve posted several desserts that use peanut butter and chocolate.  My favorite Girl Scout Cookies are the Tagalongs which are, of course, peanut butter and chocolate. So, I was excited to learn that Nestle Crunch has special Girl Scout candy bars available for a limited time and one of the flavors is peanut butter creme!

Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy BarsWhen I buy Girl Scout cookies, I buy the peanut butter, mint and caramel coconut cookies because those are my family’s favorites. While shopping at Walmart, I discovered all three of our favorites are now available in a candy bar form! I purchased all three flavors of Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Bars: Peanut Butter Creme, Thin Mints and Caramel Coconut. Yes, I did the hard work and sampled the candy bars. They are all delicious with the perfectly sweet combination of crunchy and creamy! My kids love the candy bars too. They are so good that, I had to use the peanut butter creme bars to make a dessert and decided on Peanut Butter Silk Pie. The Peanut Butter Pie is a wonderful summer recipe since it is a no bake dessert and you don’t have to turn the oven on to make it!

Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Peanut Butter CremeTo make the crust, chop up all but 4 of the peanut butter creme Nestle Crunch Girls Scout Candy Bars from two boxes of bars, about 20 bars total. Press the mixture into a 9 inch springform pan and press some of the mixture up the sides a bit. Since there is peanut butter and chocolate in the bars, they hold the crumbs together and you don’t need to add anything to them to make the crust. Then, place the pan in the freezer to harden while making the filling.

Beat one packaged of softened cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, Jif Whips (whipped peanut butter and chocolate) and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Fill Springform PanFold in a large container of whipped topping. Remove the crust from the freezer and fill the springform pan with the chocolate and peanut butter mousse. Spread it out in an even layer in the pan and place it in the freezer to harden. I left it in the freezer overnight.

    This recipe looks wonderful! I would love to try and make it. But I can’t have gluten, and I think those candy bars have gluten in them. Is there any gluten free option I can use for the crust instead of the girl scout candy bars? Thank in advance for any advice you can provide.

    • Tonia says

      Thanks Julie! I would suggest that you use your favorite brand of ready-made gluten free peanut butter cookies. You will need to add some peanut butter or butter to make the cookie crumbles stick together and form a crust since the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout candy bars are dipped in chocolate and have layers of peanut butter cream.

    This looks absolutely delicious! You’re pictures are always amazing! I could just look through your photos all day long! (and maybe eat the food while I’m at it! hehe!)

    Can anyone translate this recipe into Canadian? I need substitutions for some of the ingredients. What is peanut butter and chocolate jiff whips? We don’t have those girl guide cookies either, what’s in them?

    • Tonia says

      Jiff Whips is a combination of chocolate and peanut butter whipped together: http://www.jif.com/products/whipped-peanut-butter-and-chocolate
      Nestle Girl Scout Crunch Peanut Butter Crème – Cookie wafers layered with smooth peanut butter crème, topped with airy crispies and a creamy, chocolatey coating
      I would suggest mixing together whipped chocolate frosting and peanut butter for the Jiff Whips. For the cookies, substitute any chocolate and peanut butter wafer cookies or candy bars. Happy Baking!

    • Tonia says

      Hi Stacey,
      I would suggest using another candy bar or snack bar that has wafers, peanut butter and chocolate. Otherwise, you could use make a cookie crust using peanut butter sandwich cookies. Thanks for stopping by!

    If I wasn’t doing a ‘week without sugar’ dare right now, I’d be in the kitchen making this right this second. Those new Girl scout cookies are delicious! (shocker, right?)

  5. cathy says

    wow that is absolutely gorgeous!! One question, is there a pan that i can use besides the spring form?

    Tia,
    Cathy

    • Tonia says

      You could make it in a 9×13 pan or two 9 inch pie or cake pans. You wouldn’t be able to take it out of the pan to put on a cake stand but that wouldn’t matter one bit! Thanks for stopping by and best of luck, Cathy!

    • Tonia says

      Thanks, Alyssa! I am leaving for vacation in a couple of days so I’ve had to get them all done before I leave. I’ve got to admit that I am exhaused!

    • Tonia says

      Thanks, Jennifer! I hope I didn’t bring on some major cravings. Too bad I can’t have you over for a slice! Wait a second, I just checked your blog and even at this very moment you are meeting your new little man! Congratulations!!!

    • Tonia says

      Thanks so much, Julie! I made the Nutella Chocolate Torte not so long ago and realized that my favorite part of the dessert was the filling so I just used the filling for a pie!

  6. says

    Now this is a serious dessert! I just heard about the gs cookie bars yesterday! I can’t wait to try them and to make this lovely plate of sin! Thanks!

    • Tonia says

      Yes, it is one seriously delicious dessert and I love that it is deceivingly easy to make! Thanks, Jenna!

    • Tonia says

      Oh yeah! They are some kind of wonderful! Thanks, Erin! By the way, I found them by the cash registers at Walmart, not in the regular food aisles. Probably because they are only available for a limited time!
