We’ve got creamy, crunchy, cakey desserts and more! So no matter what you prefer, you’ll definitely find something on here to curb your cravings.

Give these chocolate peanut butter desserts a try, and you’ll never serve one without the other again!

30 Peanut Butter and Chocolate Desserts We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Balls

These peanut butter balls might be old-fashioned, but they’ll never go out of style.  

They’re creamy and chock-full of peanut butter flavor. Then each little ball is covered in rich chocolate for good measure.

Honestly, these things are pretty addictive, so you’ll want to make a lot!

2. Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Balls

The recipe above calls for crushed graham crackers. So, there’s a hint of crunch, but they’re not crunchy.

So, if you want something with more bite, try this recipe instead.

They only need five ingredients, including Rice Krispies, and have the best texture.

You really can’t beat that. 

They’re peanut buttery inside and chocolatey outside. And they’re absolutely delicious!

3. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

Sorry, Reese’s, there’s a new peanut butter cup in town! So, skip the line at your local CVS and try this recipe instead.

Not only is it cheaper than buying a new pack every other day, but it’s also the best way to modify the already perfect treat.

Featuring powdered sugar, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and salt, it’s a simple and readily available recipe to make.

But, if you want to go the extra mile, why not add some salted caramel to the mix? Or maybe some chopped peanuts for a bit of crunch?

4. Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut butter blossoms are a classic holiday cookie. And for good reason!

They’re soft, nutty, and absolutely delicious! 

Plus, they’re super easy to make. Calling for just six ingredients, they’ll be ready to devour in just 20 minutes from start to finish.

Gloriously soft and chewy with a nutty, caramelized flavor, these babies are a must-make any time of year.

5. No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

This decadent pie is deceptively simple.

So, while it may look and taste like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen, it’ll be ready to freeze in the blink of an eye.

From there, you’ll need to leave it to freeze for a couple of hours, so be sure to plan ahead.

Each bite is peanut butter-forward and luxuriously creamy.

I mean, the filling is basically a peanut butter mousse. It’s light and airy, sweet and tangy. 

That filling sits in a buttery Graham Cracker crust, so you know this is scrummy. Drizzle chocolate over the top for the perfect slice. 

6. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

This fantastic dessert is the perfect mix of blondies and brownies with a dreamy peanut butter twist.

And holy crow, are they tasty?!

Buttery, peanutty, chewy, and chocolatey, if you bring these bars to an event, you’ll be the talk of the night.

In fact, you might want to bring copies of this recipe to pass out. Because you will definitely get requests. 

7. Peanut Butter Lasagna

Don’t worry, there’s no tomato sauce or meat in this lasagna!

Instead, there are layers upon layers of taste bud tantalizing indulgence. This is one of the best desserts you will ever try.

And I’m not being hyperbolic. 

Featuring an Oreo cookie crust, chocolate pudding, peanut butter mousse, and whipped cream, it’s beyond indulgent.

But then it’s topped with chocolate peanut butter candy and a chocolate drizzle to really push it over the edge.

8. Peanut Butter Dream Bars

No, you’re not dreaming – these bars are similar to the lasagna recipe above. That said, they’re pretty dreamy in their own right. 

With creamy layers of peanut butter whip, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream, they’ll be a sure-fire hit at your next party.

They’re also topped with peanut butter cookies and Reese’s chips for added deliciousness.

But the crust is where this recipe differs. The lasagna is a bit more chocolate-forward, and this one focuses on peanut butter. 

So, instead of Oreos, you’ll use Nutter Butter cookies! Yum!

9. Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Dessert

This delicious dessert is thick, velvety, and utterly fantastic!

It’s made with layers of chocolate and peanut butter mousse along with a crumbly Oreo crust.

But this dessert has a surprise in the mix!

Between the layers of mousse, you’ll add chunks of peanut butter cups. That’s the kind of surprise I can get behind.

10. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Chocolate chip cookie bars are one of my all-time favorite desserts. I love them because they’re like extra-thick chocolate chip cookies.

But these ones are the best of the best, thanks to the super ooey-gooey middle. And yes, it’s even more gooey than normal.

That’s all down to the peanut butter. Every bite is so heavenly you will not want to share.

11. Easy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Like the peanut butter blossoms above, these peanut butter cup cookies are a holiday favorite – especially for people who are obsessed with Reese’s.

I know I am!

They’re kind of like a peanut butter cup on steroids because they’re super bulky and impossibly peanut buttery. 

Plus, there’s an entire mini Reese’s Cup in every one. I don’t think you can’t get much better than that. 

12. Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

I don’t know about you, but my lunch ladies never served anything this good! 

Soft, fudgy, and loaded with peanut butter, they’re topped with a thick, rich chocolate glaze.

If you like old-fashioned peanut butter balls, you’ll adore these. 

13. Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Chocolate Smoothie

So, I don’t typically consider smoothies a dessert. But I had to add one healthy item to this list – for balance.

And since it tastes like a milkshake anyway, I think we can call this dessert. 

It has all the main smoothie elements: peanut butter, cocoa powder, almond milk, and protein powder.

But unlike some recipes that throw in heaps of honey or simple syrup, you’ll use dates and bananas for natural sweetness.

Oh, and the added vitamins and minerals don’t hurt. 

It’s sweet, chocolatey, peanut buttery, and refreshingly cool. What more could you ask for?

14. No-Bake Peanut Butter Truffles

Truffles, bonbons, whatever you call them, they’re delicious!

They’re full of fudgy peanut butter and smothered in a chocolate shell. Drizzle with more chocolate, and enjoy!

15. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

If you like desserts that are Jeff Bezos-level rich, you’ve come to the right place.

This cake is beyond indulgent. It’s soft and moist, with layers of creamy frosting that’s so luxurious, you’ll want to put it on everything. 

It’s also topped with peanut butter cups for an extra treat that looks pretty too. Wow!  

16. Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting 

I love layer cakes, but cupcakes are so cute and fun. Plus, they taste absolutely scrumptious with half of the work!

Between the bouncy cupcake and perfect swirls of peanut butter frosting, these chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes are totally Instagram-worthy!

Drizzle each one with more chocolate and top them with a peanut butter cup. They’re great for sharing… or not. You do you. 

17. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

If you think pies can’t be refreshing, think again!

This pie is so cool and creamy, it’s perfect for a warm summer day. 

It has a chocolate crust and tangy cream cheese, and peanut butter filling.

And if that wasn’t tempting enough, it’s also topped with chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.  

18. Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

I simply couldn’t make a list of chocolate peanut butter desserts without including ice cream. That would be dessert blasphemy!

And this chocolate and peanut butter ice cream is heavenly!

It’s like designer ice cream. Like if Louis Vuitton or Gucci tried their hand at frozen treats.

It’s rich, and every creamy bite is absolute luxury. 

It’s ultra chocolatey and loaded with swirls and chunks of semi-frozen peanut butter. Delish!

19. Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Not all peanut butter cookies have to be Sahara Desert-dry, and here’s the proof!

These tasty cookies are super soft and chewy and jam-packed with peanut butter flavor. 

M&Ms add color and a chocolatey crunch, making these cookies even more spectacular.

You and everyone around you will love them! 

20. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Are you cheesecake-obsessed like me? Then you’ll want to pay close attention to the next few recipes.

Unlike most peanut butter cheesecakes, which tend to be no-bake, this one is the real deal. It’s full-on, bain-marie baked, and decadent as heck. 

And it’s worth all of the effort.

It’s tangy, creamy, sweet, and rich. The crust is buttery and chocolatey, and the filling is bursting with peanut butter goodness. 

Plus, every bite includes chunks of peanut butter cups. They’re in both the filling and the topping.

21. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

We don’t always have the time to bake cheesecake. So, when you’re in a pinch, there’s nothing better than a no-bake, creamy cheesecake for dessert.

And if you want peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake without the hassle, you have to try these cheesecake bars! 

From the chocolate crust and peanut butter cheesecake filling to the over-the-top chocolate ganache glaze, these are much less fussy.

And they don’t need a water bath!

22. Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Cheesecake

You can never have too many cheesecake recipes, as far as I’m concerned! And this is one you don’t want to miss.

Bursting with chocolate and peanut butter flavors, it’s creamy and delightful. 

23. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding

One bite of this pudding, and you’ll never buy ready-made again.

Trust me, this chocolate peanut butter recipe is far from your average pudding. 

It’s super chocolatey and not overwhelmingly peanut buttery. But it’s still incredible moreish.

I can eat this stuff straight from the saucepan! But obviously, it needs time to cool and set.

Serve with fresh fruit, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. Yummy!

24. Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters

If you’re looking for a fun family activity, try some candy-making!

Once you master this recipe, you’ll always have some delicious candy within reach. 

Confectionery has a reputation for being difficult, but these clusters are simple.

You only need four ingredients and basic kitchen equipment (like spoons and a microwave).

The kids can even help. Just be sure to keep an eye on them!

25. Chocolate Peanut Butter Crockpot Candy

While I’m on the topic of simple confectionery, here’s another easy recipe for you!

The end result is similar to the previous one, but the process is different.

You see, when you melt chocolate in the microwave, it’s shockingly easy to burn it.

But in the Crock-Pot? It’s slow, smooth, and foolproof.

26. Crockpot Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Did you know that you can bake in a slow cooker? And get oven-like results with no funny textures.

It’s true, and you need to try it at least once!

Better yet, the Crock-Pot allows you to bake in the summer without heating up your whole house.

Sure, it takes longer, but the results are delicious. And you don’t have to watch your oven.


27. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake

Crock-Pot cakes are seriously underrated, which is a shame because they’re essentially giant mug cakes (and who doesn’t love a good mug cake?).

This particular recipe is insanely easy, thanks to the boxed cake mix. Shh… that can be our little secret. 

The chocolate cake is soft, chocolatey, and absolutely delicious. However, the star is the warm, creamy, peanut butter lava.  

I’m not drooling…you are!

28. Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

If a brownie isn’t fudgy, it’s not really a brownie in my book. Thankfully, these delicious peanut butter brownies are incredibly fudgy. 

From their intensely rich chocolate flavor to the peanut butter swirls, these babies are salty, sweet, and addictive.

They’re sinful and heavenly all at the same time. Enjoy!

29. Vegan Double-Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Bars

I haven’t forgotten you, my vegan friends! Your recipe might be the penultimate, but I promise it was worth the scroll. 

These bars are like the love child of Twix and Snickers.

Sadly, there’s no nougat, but I don’t think you’ll be that sad because these bars have a vegan peanut butter caramel instead. 

They also have a vegan chocolate shortbread base, which is sorta crunchy and kinda chewy.

And then everything is covered in rich dark chocolate ganache. 

It’s gooey, nutty, and simply divine. 

30. Peanut Butter Torte

If you love a little texture in your desserts, you’re in luck! This peanut butter torte has creamy elements and crunchy elements.

So, every bite is a rollercoaster of texture and flavor.
