10-Minute Peanut Butter Pretzel Pie


By Marlene Koch

I can't imagine writing a dessert chapter without including a chocolate peanut butter recipe, especially one as delectable as this five-ingredient, ultra smooth, frozen delight. And, like the best no-bake peanut butter pies, it takes just minutes to assemble. The crowning touch is a pretzel garnish, which provides the perfect sweet and salty taste experience.

Makes 8 Servings


  • 3 cups light, no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 chocolate or Oreo pre-made pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free chocolate ice cream topping
  • 1/3 cup roughly crushed pretzels
  • 1 cup light whipped topping, optional garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the ice cream and peanut butter until well mixed. Spoon the mixture into the crust and smooth the top. Drizzle the filling with ice cream topping, and sprinkle the pretzels over the pie.
  2. Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. Let pie sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting and garnishing with whipped topping, if desired.

Dare to Compare: A traditional slice of frozen peanut butter pie made with cream cheese and whipped topping has 650 calories—including a full day’s worth of saturated fat and sugar.
