Ratings & Reviews



I will make this again but next time I would make it in a small cake pan so you can use all of the filling and extra crumbs or I needed a bigger pie plate...but it was good and all gone the same night that I made it.


This is a wonderful dessert. it was a big hit, and my daughter said it was restaurant quality. Can't go wrong with this one.


This is our new Birthday 'Cake' for the family...used to buy DQ Cakes...saves me a pile of money and it's delicious.


My 13yr old son helped me with this one.This was a for sure do again recipe- like next week.Each piece you have just tastes like you want another.If you like peanut butter & chocolate dont hesitate to try this one-& dont leave out dizzled peanut butter on top


Huge hit with my family and guests!! i used low fat brownine mix and it worked out fine!!


Great combo and rich flavor! Easy to make and really easy to eat. My children helped break up the brownie and drizzle the topping. Fun and fab. :)


everyone wanted this recipe at a potluck I attended. Great success with this


Absolutely mouth-watering!! I was drooling just looking at this picture and EVERYONE asked for the recipe.


Super simple, but a big hit! A new years party favorite with both kids and adults!


This was quite good...really liked the brownie base. I think you could make a lot of variations on this recipe and keep coming up with good results.


Such a simple yet delicious recipe! My boyfriend always asks for me to make this one!


Excellent! Just as good frozen as not. When frozen, pie filling tastes likes peanut butter ice cream.



When I made this the first time for my family, it instantly became a favorite! If it seems too rich for you, you can always add more peanut butter and whip cream!!!! It's a winner all the way!!!! Enjoy!!!!




This was really good but really sweet! I would definately make it again as my husband and I love anything peanut butter and chocolate. Was a very easy to make dessert!


lighten this recipe up as much as's sooooo good you know it can't be good for you!







The kids loved it! The only thing I would change is putting less filling in the pie.


This pie was very good, but I did find that the center was very runny (and I did have it in the fridge before serving). Next time I might add less cool whip to see how that works out. Other than that very delicious!



I made this recipe for my co-workers. They loved it so much they want me to make it everytime there's a gathering. Kraft rocks!!


I made this for my family thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! Even my grandparents liked it! I had to make another to share at my boyfriend's thanksgiving we enjoyed it so much, and it was an even bigger hit! His family told me they know what they want me to make for Christmas! Mmmmm!


very easy and tastes amazing!!


This was a big hit with the whole family, I will double up on the brownie mix next time we make it I found it difficult to cut a slice without it making a mess. Will be making it again very soon:)


I was surprised at how easy it is to make.


This is delicious! looks fancy but so easy to make!


This was absolutely delicious and so easy to make! It was very sweet (cut smaller pieces for everyone) but a great balance of peanut butter and chocolate. I shared it with a friend and her kids and they loved it. I will absolutely make this again!


My boyfriend and I really like this recipe. In facted I'm trying chocolate pudding mix instead of vanilla without the peanut butter. But still trying it with the peanut butter drizzle on top. And it still taste just great.


This dessert was a hit...on more than one occasion!! It is so simple to make and tastes devine. It is great for potlucks.


It was a family hit! Tasted awesome. Would make it again!


This peanut butter brownie pie is outstanding. I've made it twice already, once while down south and I made it for the family we were staying with. None of us could get enough of it. Truly a delicious treat when you need something sweet. Easy to make and Easter is coming, going to make it yet again! 5 Stars Plus!!




This was very tasty, but very sweet. I feel a chocolate crumb crust instead of the brownie crust, might be better as it would take away a bit of sweetness. But all in all, we enjoyed it.


Absolutely delicious! This was a real crowd pleaser and was finished in no time. I'm making it again - requested by popular demand. It was just the right blend of peanut butter and brownie tastes. No fault of the recipe, but my brownie stuck to the pie plate which made it difficult to scoop out, but still fantastic!


It might be the brownie mix I used but I had to bake it a LOT longer than recommended by the recipe for it to be sturdy enough to scoop out solid bits. I also found that I had way too much filling and next time won't pour it all in. That said, it was SO DELICIOUS. Will make it again.


It is too sweet for me.


Absolutely loved it....I make it for my family and friends all the time.....they LOVE IT TOO!!!!


The middle of the pie wasnt thick, it was about as thin as water! Although it did taste good!


I started making this and then realized I had no vanilla pudding mix, so I made it with chocolate instead. I omitted the pb and drizzled it with caramel topping... a chocolate-lover's dream!


So yummy!!! I've also done this recipe with butterscotch topping instead of peanut butter which was even more of a hit with friends and family (but I still prefer the peanut butter myself)




One word- WOW!





I replaced the packaged brownie mix with half of my own recipe. It has been enjoyed by all, many times so far. I used this as a birthday 'cake', candles and all, for my son who is not into cakes. And there is always a small batch of brownies left for later.


I have to admit, we were a little disappointed with this one. I thought it would taste better than it actually did (and the photo looked so good!). We actually had leftovers in the fridge that no one ate and they went bad. We won't make this again.


It was very good for a peanut butter lover but i actually thought it would taste a little better but it was great would make again


I served this pie at three different functions ranging in ages from small children to senior citizens and it was a complete success with no leftovers. I have also shared this recipe with many people


It's easy to make and absolutely delicious.


Great,fast and easy to make.I made this for my nieces family birthday party and it was gone well before the birthday cake was. Would make it again.


I used a chocolate cake mix and made it "light" with 1 1/4 cup water and 2 eggs. This makes it perfect and cuts the richness. The brownie goes sometimes hard on the edges and is super rich which is great for kids - but adults who want a lighter taste but still enjoy use the cake mix.


Kind of sweet..but what do you expect when making this type of dessert?? Absolutely DELISH!!! Love-love-LOVED it! Need to find an excuse to make it again!


A little too sweet for us. I will make it again but not very often.





Absolutely delicious.The brownie mixture stuck to bottom of the pie plate but still delicious.Will make again.


Everyone loved this tasty treat. I varied from the recipe and baked my brownies in a mini cupcake pan. After baking (and cooling) I used a melon baller and scooped the center from each cake out. I then generously filled each brownie with the creamy filling and garnished with the reserved brownie crumbles. Next time I'll try a sliced up peanut butter cup as a garnish - A great little brownie bite. Yummy!


I used light brownie mix, pudding, coolwhip and pb. The brownie base stuck to the pie plate. I told the guests it was a "trifle" and not a pie. They loved it.




absolutely possitively delicious and sooooo simple to make Yummy!!!




This is very easy to make and delicious. I used my own brownie recipe but a mix would work as well. I made it for work and everyone loved it,I have since made it two more times.



this was easy to make and hard not to eat it all, very delious


Super Super easy. Everyone loved it.



Very tastey dessert, easy to make and looks good!


A big hit with both kids & adults. Looks great and tastes even better


Delicious and easy to make. My family loved it and I will make it again...very soon :) Thanks


I decided to try this recipe because it looked really good!!!! but it is VERY rich!! and ya i probably wouldnt try it again but it was ok for taste!!!!!


Awesome, teasted great!




Really easy to make. Substituted the peanut butter with chocolate and caramel sundae topping....was really, really good. Very light dessert


This was an easy dessert to make and my family loved it! They've already asked me to make it again.


Very good! I made a short cut, and used oreo cookie crumb crust and pre-made "two bite" brownies. saves time and mess.


This was simple to make and excellent. Everyone loved it. I had people knocking on my door for leftovers


I loved it! Very easy to make and looks really fancy too. Great for potlucks!


Oh wow! This was an absolute hit. Very sweet but shockingly not too heavy. Perfect!


Very good and quite rich. Second time I used a light pudding mix, light PB and light Cool Whip - WONDERFUL!


Not as great as I thought it would be. Very filling and rich even for my sweet tooth. Prefered the filling part over the brownie part, didn't work well together for me.


Need smooth PB


I made 2 of these at the same time, 1 for us at home and 1 fro the girls at work. What a hit all around


Family loved this dessert, they keep asking me to make again. It was a lot of fun to make.


Loved it. It was so easy and quick and tasted delicios. I will definitely make it again. I do not make a lot a desserts, but this one is easy, I give it a 10.


I over-cooked the brownies a bit but it was still GREAT !! When it is done it is so pretty Ihated to cut into it..lolol Thanks, Kraft ! Iam not much of a baker but you made me look good with this one !!


This was amazing, i made it for a birthday party, everyone loved it and it's so easy to make. I'm making it for some family Christmas partys.


I went to my cousins house for supper and I was in charge of dessert. So i decided to try this recipe. They couldn't stop talking with their mouths full about this dessert.


easy to make, but far too rich. You have to serve this dessert with coffee or tea.


Absolutely awesome recipe, made it twice and will make it many more times, neighbors and husband loved it !!!!! It's easy to make even if you don't know how to cook...try it you'll like it.


My daughter and I made this recipe and it was a hit with family and friends...we will definitely make it again


This pie will for sure be a family favourite, even my 3 year grand daughter loved it....yummy!!


My family found this very rich and a too sweet...I would make it again but with some changes...More whip and less pudding. Otherwise it was a quick and simple recipe that looked exactly like the photo when prepared.


This dessert was the hit of the meal. My children are still talking about how delicious it was.



Very sweet, easy to make.


Really good, really easy to make. Husband thought it was pretty sweet, but still yummy.


I broughtt his in for a potluck today at work, and everone loved it! I used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, though. I've tried vanilla pudding and peanut butter before and wasn't a fan. I liked this much better!


This is delicious;a family favourite! It contains life's most coveted poisons: chocolate & peanut butter...yummy!


I have made this twice and both times everyone loved it.


It's easy to make,you can make it in advance,and it's pretty, just like the picture. My grandson(21) lives on peanutbutter so he got his very own pie for his birthday.


I didnt make this but it was served as dessert at a friends house when we were guests. I thought it was FANTASTIC!! Will be making this one myself for the next family occassion. :)


I love chocolate and peanut butter together but I found this recipe VERY rich.


I made this for thanksgiving and there was only 1 problem..........everyone loved it so much there was not enough to go around


Absolutely divine! All my grandchildren have declared this is the best dessert ever and my stamp of approval is added as well! I am being begged daily to make this.


This is so tasty and easy to make. I even tried subbing the pudding with ice cream and it is great!!!


Made it for Thanksgiving dinner and at first everyone was skeptical. UNTIL THEY TIRED IT AND LOVED IT!


This pie was super easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious! I will definitely make it again. My husband loved it!


This is soo easy and delicious!! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and EVERYONE loved it :)




absolutely delicious although the edges of brownies were VERY dry and hard


Again an excellent dessert. Easy and quick to make. I love all your recipes. As soon as I receive your magazine I try 4 or 5 new ones. We often have family get togethers and they always count on me bringing desserts. It's always something different and delisious. Your magazine is my life saver.


This dessert was delicious, I would definately make it again. Once thing to be aware, light peanut butter does not melt well for the topping, best to use the real stuff.


I had this at my daughters last weekend, and it is awesome. I am passing it on to a couple of my friends today.


2 thumbs up!! Extremely easy to make.. and very tasty. Everyone that tried it were very impressed. Definitely a favorite from now on :)


Simply amazing! I didn't use a pie plate and used a deep circular baking dish which made the edeges very hard.


This has officially become my new dessert to impress!!! Super Super easy to make and beyond delicious!!


This is a great recipe, the trick is not to tell anyone how easy it is to make, everyone loved it, and thought it took me hours to make, and had exotic ingredients in it.


Fabulous,what an easy and delicious dessert.


This is absolutely amazing!! Very impressive to serve. I also used chopped peanuts on the top before I drizzled the peanut butter. I also drizzled chocolate sauce as well as peanut butter.


This was a quick and easy recipe. I will make it again.
