This super-easy pie comes together in minutes and is all things fluffy, chocolately, and delicious.

No Bake Chocolate Pie

I love to bake, but when company’s coming and I’m already cooking meals AND juggling writing deadlines, a fancy cake or pie ain’t gonna happen. No-bake is the way to go. That way I can even make it the day before and I know it will keep just fine–and even improve in flavor.

This pie is really easy to tweak. I added mini Oreos, but you can throw any kind of cookie or candy bar in there… or keep it smooth and add nothing at all.

One concern I had was that this would taste like cheesecake. My family isn’t into cheesecake. The cream cheese here adds a lot of texture and richness, but the clear flavor is that of chocolate. Which meant… shhh… people didn’t know the cream cheese was in there.

It’ll be our secret.

No Bake Chocolate Pie

A simple, no-bake chocolate pie that’s easily customized to your liking.

  • 4 ounces Baker’s German Sweet or Semi Sweet Chocolate
  • 1/3 cup milk, cream, or half & half
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip topping, thawed (Reduced Fat worked fine)
  • 1 graham cracker or chocolate pie crust
  • 4 ounces mini Oreos, chopped (or other cookies or candy)

Heat chocolate and 2 tablespoons of the milk in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and cream cheese. Add the rest of the milk, and the cooled chocolate mixture. Beat until smooth.

Fold in whipped topping and until the colors are blended. Add in the cookie chunks. Spoon into the premade cookie crust.

Freeze the pie until firm, about 4 hours, or in the fridge overnight. Thaw at room temperature for a short while before serving, if need be. If desired, garnish with more Cool Whip, or chocolate or caramel drizzle. Store in the fridge.

OM NOM NOM!
