Let’s take a look at the little pies I created 🙂
Here’s my line up of ingredients. Nice and simple!
I used Snackwells Fudge Pretzels in my dessert. Mmmm!
How to Make These Mini Pies
Start by baking 1/4 cup cookie dough into small pie plates or ramekins.
Take your Snackwells Fudge Pretzels and…..
….crush them into your pudding/Cool Whip mix.
Give it all a nice stir.
Place dollops of filling over cooled cookie crust.
Here you have adorable simple little pies! Enjoy 🙂
Cookie Crusted Peanut Butter Pretzel Pies
- 1 cup pre-made cookie dough I used chocolate chip
- 1 small box vanilla instant pudding mix
- 2 cups cold milk
- 1 1/2 cups cool whip
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 pkg chocolate covered pretzels Snackwells, crushed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide cookie dough between 4 mini pie plates or small ramekins.
- Bake until baked through 12-15 minutes. Let cool completely.
- Whisk together the pudding mix and cold milk until thick. Fold in Cool Whip and peanut butter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Spoon filling over each cookie crust and top with a chocolate pretzel. Serve cold. Save remaining pie filling for another use.
Have a great day! Come back soon 🙂

I can’t wait to make these!!! And so perfect for just hubby and I!
That’s totally crazy and messed up, and I want me some!
Yum! I love the sweet and salty flavor combo of chocolate covered pretzels so I would love this!
I have to make these!!! With those photographs of yours, you are making me go for it instant. Looks so AMAZING!!!
What a FANTASTIC idea! I JUST bought little ramekins so I will have to try this, and soon. I love the salty/sweet combo 🙂
I LOVE those little white dishes! I’m going to look for some and then I’m going to make this fabulous looking dessert!
You come up with the best desserts that easy and delicious! Love how their is cookie dough in the bottom of these.
Oh man! I need to make these soon! They really look amazing! I am a huge fan of chocolate covered pretzels! I will be searching for those Snackwells pretzels when I get back to the USA. I cant wait! I absolutely love all the dessert combos you come up with! 🙂
Very creative, Jenny. Love it!
The fact that this Peanut butter Pretzel pie looks so delicious and is SO easy to make is a little bitter sweet … sweet that I’m going to want it all the time now 😉 lol but bitter because its swimsuit season … hmmm looks like I’ll have to invest in a coverup 😉
Oh, my gosh. Lovely. Easy and delicious!
Love the ease of these, Jenny! And I totally agree with Devon, there is definitely a little something-something in those pretzels!
Yummy! Where did you get those adorable little pie plates?
Amazing! So simple and yet so delicious!!
Those Snackwells chocolate covered pretzels are laced with crack. So yummy!
Now I’m craving cool whip.
Lol! They are good aren’t they?!
Love this! It looks awesome!
Looks insane…. those pretzels alone look wonderful! 😉
They are ridiculously good!!
I like this idea! Too bad we dont get cool whip here in south africa, but i would like to try these anyway, I love cookie crusts 🙂 A simple dessert is always the best – and everyone enjoys it just as much as one you have spent hours on!
Oh bummer! Wish you could get your hands on some Cool Whip!!
If you can get heavy whipping cream, you can make your own! I prefer it to cool whip when making sweet desserts. I simply whip it into whipped cream and omit all or most of the sugar. That way it cuts back on the overall sweetness.
Ohh, this is so neat!! 🙂 i bet adding those Snackwells Chocolate Covered Pretzels made the whipped cream so much better!
Great idea, Jenny! I am loving the Cool Whip desserts lately and this is such a smart idea. Those pretzels…and that pudding/mixture. YUM!
Thanks Averie!! xoxo
