How to make No Bake Monster Cookie Dough Cheesecake Pie

Step 1. Make the Graham Cracker Crust. Start by adding the graham crackers to a food processor and pulse until crumbs form. You can also add them to a storage bag and crush them with a rolling pin or even just grab a box of graham cracker crumbs from the store.

Add the sugar and butter to the crumbs and pulse until the crumbs resemble wet sand if you're using a food processor. If you're using a storage bag, empty the crumbs into a medium bowl and add the sugar and butter. Stir until the crumbs are completely coated with butter.

Pour the crust into a 9 inch pie plate and firmly press it into the bottom and up the sides. Place the crust in the fridge for 15 minutes while working on the cheesecake batter.

Step 2. Make the Monster Cookie Dough Cheesecake Filling. Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer.

Add the sour cream, peanut butter and vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture. Beat until everything is incorporated. Scrape down the bowl and beat in any remaining bits.

Fold in the candies and chocolate chips.

Step 3. Add the cheesecake filling to the crust. Once the M&M's and chocolate chips are worked into the peanut butter cheesecake filling, scrape the filling into the pie plate with the prepared crust.

Spread the filling out using an angled spatula, being careful not to disturb the crust. Make sure it's evenly distributed. Cover and place in the fridge to chill for at least 6 hours, but preferably overnight.

Step 4. Add the toppings. Once the cheesecake has set up, drizzle store-bought fudge topping or even ganache on top. Sprinkle the remaining M&M's and chocolate chips on top. A drizzle of melted peanut butter would be great as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a store-bought graham cracker crust?

Absolutely. If you want to cut a corner to this no bake pie go right ahead and buy the graham cracker crust pre-made. Or step out of the box and do a chocolate Oreo cookie crust as well. They sell those as well.

Can I add more peanut butter to this cheesecake pie?

Feel free to add up to a ½ cup of peanut butter to the recipe. Know that it will of course alter the flavor of the pie and a bit of the texture.

Can I use peanut butter sandwich cookies for the crust?

You can go right ahead and use the sandwich cookies in place of the crust. Just crush them up with a rolling pin in a bag or use a food processor. Then add in the butter and press down in the pie pan. I would leave the sugar out since the cookies are sweet enough as is. slice of cheesecake on a white rectangle plate with a fork

How long will this monster cookie dough cheesecake pie last?

The pie will last for around a week in the fridge. Store the pie in an airtight container. You want to make sure the cake is covered well or it can take on odors in the fridge.

Can you freeze cheesecake pie?

You can freeze cheesecake pie if you want. Place the pie in a container or wrap twice with aluminum foil to help prevent freezer burning. Then place in plastic wrap. This will extend the shelf life. The pie can freeze for 2-3 months.
