Peanut Butter Pie Shooters

I’m melting.

My heart and

soul are





See how I did that? That was me melting into an ocean of peanut butter pie filling.

Dessert Shooters

I know a lot of people don’t love showers, of the gifting variety, but I love babies and I love baby showers. All 3 that I’ve ever been to, anyways. My best friend is having a baby (squee!) so this weekend we threw a little baby shindig for her soon-to-be newborn baby boy.

To honor his precious life, we shot cutesy dessert shooters, which sounds way more trashy than it was. It was more classy. More like licked desserts out of mini glasses and ate the Oreo crumbs off the floor. And then sniffed candy bars melted into diapers for a prize. Why is that fun?

In my perfect world, I would pay someone to massage my scalp with one of those little head scratcher thingies that looks like a stick with wire legs while I ate, took, shot, inhaled, licked shooters of peanut butter pie filling.

Then I would pay that someone not to tell anyone about how my face smelled like cream cheese, or about the Oreo crumbles in my hair, or about the way I’d intentionally put less filling in each shooter glass so I’d have extra to lick out of the bowl. And on second thought, I wouldn’t pay them, because it would be my perfect world.

Going now.

Peanut Butter Pie Shooters
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 20
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (can use reduced fat)
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream (or whipped cream)
  • 16 Oreos, crushed
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • sea salt for sprinkling (optional)
  1. Beat cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth.
  2. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy. Add powdered sugar and beat until the mixture thickens slightly.
  3. Fold in whipped cream, or add liquid heavy whipping cream and continue to beat until the mixture gets a little bit fluffy. Refrigerate mixture until ready to serve.
  4. Stir melted butter in with crushed Oreos and press 1 teaspoon crumbs into the bottoms of dessert shooter cups. Pour peanut butter mixture into a plastic baggie, snip the corner, and pipe into the cups (on top of the crumbs). Sprinkle the tops with another ½ teaspoon of crumbs. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt for an extra sweet-salty combo. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Peanut Butter Pie will thicken as it sits in the refrigerator. I actually prefer to eat these after they've been in the fridge overnight.

PS. They’re actually called scalp massagers (thanks Goog), and you should get one. You should also get those dessert shooter glasses. I got mine here.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You’ve just made my pms week far more tolerable 😉

  3. These are so cute! I love it!

  4. What a great idea for a party! I’ve been trying to decide what to do next time my friends come over and I think this may be the answer.

  5. You are hilarious. And I think I need to marry you. I want all your food.

  6. Could these be any more adorable?! I want shooters of pie!

  7. Is it bad that I would gladly accept these over any alcohol-laden shots?? Just give me a batch of these. I will be happy as a clam. Or just covered in peanut butter and Oreo crumbs, which is pretty much the same thing. YUM.

  8. what a great idea for a’s easy enough to eat individually and easy to transport! love this! and who doesn’t love peanut butter pie in a shooter?!

  9. These are adorable! What a great idea for showers, it is definitely that time of the year!

  10. I would need more than one of these. Or just serve them in bigger glasses O:-)

  11. I love little mini desserts, and these peanut butter pie shooters sound perfect.

  12. Oh these would be such a huge hit at any party…they look so good and they are so neat! Getting all that mixture into those glasses without making a total mess of the sides of the shot glasses is harder than it looks…well, for me anyway :)

  13. Jen @ Jen's Favorite Cookies says:

    Cream cheese + Peanut Butter? Genius. Sheer genius. LOVE this!!

  14. i’m throwing a baby shower this summer, and i think these would be perfecto! :)

  15. Aww, I want those little topper things, if that’s what they’re called. I don’t even know anyone in real life having a baby. I just want them. They would make me happy when I’m down. :)

    And the shooters look amazing and perfectly classy! I like to just eat the pie filling of any pie so this looks good to me.

  16. Oh man, these kill me. I’m not having a baby or anything, but I could just throw myself a shower and you could bring these? I’d even throw in a scalp massager for good measure!

  17. Lauren says:

    These are adorable! In your shower pic, I noticed that some were darker than others. Did you make some plain chocolate and some peanut butter? If so, how did you make them??!

  18. Katie @ Nutrition in a Peanut Shell says:

    This is amazing! They’re so cute…I bet you could do this with a bunch of other types of pie, too!

  19. These look so good! And of course it had to pop into my email address right when I’ve craving a snack.

  20. peanut butter pie shooters! so adorable lindsay. And what an adorable treat for a shower! i think i could house about 12 of those. is that bad? 😉

  21. Ok, those are seriously so cute!!

  22. Love your clever idea…Sounds so grown up but looks really really innocent and so fun. These shooters are for kids and kids at heart…Love the animal cupcake toppers.

  23. I have not seen these types at showers, parties and more -great idea.

  24. Stumbled upon your site through FoodGawker – pinned a bunch of your recipes – and then discovered that you’re a fellow Mpls/St. Paul food blogger! Love your site & photography.

  25. We are doing mini dessert for my sister-in-law’s shower and I have been looking for shooter cups. I just ordered some from the link you posted, thank you! These look delicious.

  26. Those look so delicious! Love the presentation.

  27. YUM – these are delicious looking (and nothing wrong with licking those bowls) – I think that I shall look into those cute glasses… I need to finish my dining room just so I have enough storage to get all these fun new things that I need!!!

  28. Does the picture have two different fillings? Sorry if I missed something. Looks like these would be perfect for a dessert bar. Anxious to try. Is there a source for the glasses? thanks……

    • Yes, I actually made a separate batch with Nutella but they didn’t turn out as great as the PB ones, so I just shared the PB ones. :) And I linked to the place where I bought the cups right at the end of the post.

  29. I needed something for my daughters shower as well. With all the other stuff that I’m doing I just needed something that taste great and easy to do and this is the it. Thank you so much for posting this.

  30. Well I want to whip these up as soon as possible! Nothing says comfort like peanut butter and chocolate!

  31. Beautiful blog. These look like heaven. I’m dangerous around peanut butter…I’d be drunk off of these for sure!

  32. Heather Boyd says:

    I made some for a bake sale tomorrow, with the help of 3 young assistants. How could I not try it after your glowing report?! I think it was delicious! I ended up using regular dollar store clear glasses, so much for “shooters”… Thanks for the recipe!

  33. Heather says:

    I made these a couple of weeks ago for my best friend’s baby shower. YUM! So easy and a total crowd pleaser. I stuck a mini spoon in each cup and embellished the cups to match the theme. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

  34. These look soooo yummy!

  35. These look awesome! I moved to Barcelona this summer and don’t have an oven, so I am loving the no-bake recipes!

    Some of them are a little different in color, did you mix chocolate in too? If so, was it cocoa or syrup? I’m all for experimenting, but I was just curious.



    • Yeah, I subbed the PB for Nutella in some, but actually didn’t really like the result which is why I didn’t include it in the recipe. But I’m sure with a little tweaking, you could make it work! 😉

  36. Super cute,where your finding the littler cup?

  37. Would these ingredient ratios also work if I wanted to convert this recipe into a standard pie?

  38. I’m definitely giving these a try! Just wanted to let you know that when I went to print these, the cupcake photo shows up instead of a photo of the peanut butter pie shooters.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  39. Hello,
    I want to try the recipe but I am a little worried that it would turn out too sweet. The peanut butter is already sweet+ the sweetened condensed milk+ the powdered sugar. Was the outcome too sweet?

  40. This is my absolute FAV!!!! Make it often

  41. Catherine says:

    Hello! These are beautiful and with those ingredients, I can’t imagine they don’t taste amazing. I’m planning to make them for a party I’m hosting on Thursday night, but I’ll be breaking that age-old advice to not try anything new for company (I actually ignore that rule on a regular basis). Anyhow, I’d like to make these ahead of time… any special considerations on keeping them in the fridge overnight? Should I wait to do the last sprinkling of cookie crumbs until right before serving to keep them from being soggy? Or will they just tumble right off of the cold choc-pb mousse? Any advice would be helpful.

    This defo is a great recipe.. 😀


    ive never really been a peanut butter fan but this was heaven.. eeeep ;D

  44. wasluvsmah says:

    I love these nearly as much as I love Mahmood!!!!

  45. Is it possible to use crunchy peanut butter?

  46. claire williams says:

    I have just made this recipe after finding it on pintrest. I didn’t have enough glasses to make 20 so I Ha e lots of the peanut butter mix left. Wi it freeze do you think? Or any other suggestions on how to use it?
    Thank you

    • Best option: eat it! :) We never tried freezing the peanut butter mix, but my guess is that it would work. Otherwise, (depending on how much you have) you could use it as the bottom layer in some sort of cream pie or chocolate cream pie… I’m thinking oreo crust, layer of peanut butter mix, and then layer of french silk pie filling. Yumm. :)

  47. Cynthia says:

    Look so yummy! Going to make for my women’s club picnic. How many days in advance can I make?

    • Hi, Cynthia! You could make this up to a few days in advance, but just be aware that it will thicken in the fridge. When taking it out of the fridge, I would leave it at room temp for a little while so it’s easier to work with and spoon out into small cups. I would also suggest waiting to assemble the small cups until closer to the time you serve them. Otherwise, the oreos could end up soggy if they’re in the fridge for a few days. Hope that helps!

      • Cynthia says:

        Yes, that’s helps a lot. Instead of Oreos, I’m going to use crushed chocolate graham crackers. :) Can’t wait to make them!
