No Bake Butterfinger Pie

Our easy Butterfinger Pie recipe features a crunchy graham cracker crust piled high with smooth peanut butter filling studded with candy pieces, blanketed in whipped topping, and covered with more Butterfingers. 

The no-bake Butterfinger cheesecake filling comes together in a flash – simply mix peanut butter, cream cheese, and whipped topping, then fold in your chopped chocolate-coated peanut butter candy.

Because Butterfingers are so easy to crush, they’re just begging to be folded into the filling and used to decorate this dessert; the flavor is diffused throughout the entire dessert so that every bite boasts the classic candy bar taste.

I love the convenience of a peanut butter Butterfinger pie with graham cracker crust because there’s nothing to bake and the crust is already cooked! But if you’re craving a chocolate pie crust, use a premade Oreo crust instead.

Substitutions and Additions

How to Make Butterfinger Pie

  1. Make The Peanut Butter Mixture: Beat the cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth. Fold in whipped topping and chopped Butterfingers.
  2. Assemble: Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust, spread on the whipped topping to cover, and sprinkle the chopped Butterfingers over the top.
  3. Chill: Refrigerate for 2-4 hours, or overnight before serving to firm up.
  4. Serve: Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Tips For Making The Perfect Butterfinger Pie

  • This recipe does not use natural peanut butter; it is too oily and can separate. A commercial-brand creamy peanut butter will blend more smoothly and is ideal for achieving a mousse-like pie filling. I think Jif or Skippy works great!
  • Be sure to use softened, room temperature cream cheese. This will help ensure no cream cheese lumps in the filling mixture.

How to Store Butterfinger Pie

  • To Store: Store leftover pie in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
  • To Freeze: You can wrap and freeze your pie for 2-3 months.
