Mini Peanut Butter Icebox Pies

If you’ve been around my blog for a bit, you know that we kind of adore, idolize, worship, glorify LOVE peanut butter at my house.  We eat it every day.  Well, almost every day.  Honestly, at least one person in my family eats peanut butter on any given day.  I think. Yeah.  They do. 😀

Mini PB IceBox Pies ~ Pearls + Girls

These Mini Peanut Butter Icebox Pies are a NO BAKE recipe.  On a really hot day that last thing you (or I) want to do is heat up the kitchen!  Crush some Oreos, whip some cream, fold in some peanut butter and pop those babies in the fridge for a couple hours.  So easy, so delicious,  and no one will know it only took you minutes to prep these little cutie pies.  I used mason jar lids as pie tins, but you could make one big pie with these measurements as well.  Enjoy! 🙂
