This chocolate cream pie recipe is an old family favorite like my Butterfinger Pie Recipe. Buttery, flaky crust with a lusciously creamy chocolate filling. Topped with a fresh whip cream topping is simply to die for! Perfect for both chocolate lovers and pie lovers!

Why this recipe works

This chocolate pie is perfect anytime of the year and for any occasion. We serve it during the holiday season and even for a Fourth of July bbq.

It's basically a no-bake pie you're only pre-baking the pie crust a bit. No egg yolks are used in the recipe you just need an electric mixer and some chill time.

Recipe Tips

1. Use pie weights or dried beans when baking your crust. It prevents the crust from forming air pockets and bubbling up.

2. Make sure your cream cheese is softened so there are no little bits of cream cheese.

3. I usually make my own whipped cream. But two containers of Cool Whip can also be used.

4. Let the pie set up for about 4 hours before serving.

Recipe FAQ's

Can I use a different type of crust?

I used a store-bought pie crust. If you prefer to make your own homemade pie crust, you certainly can. A graham cracker crust or Oreo cookie crust would also be fantastic

Can I freeze this pie?

Yes, I prefer to leave the whipped topping off until ready to serve. Let the pie set up as directed in the refrigerator.
Then cover with a piece of plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil and freeze for up to three months. Simply thaw in the refrigerator and add the whipped topping and chocolate shavings before serving.

How to make the whipped cream

I use a stand mixer to make mine. For the quickest results, I place the metal bowl and whisk attachment into the freezer for 5 minutes to get the nice and chilled before making it. Add the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar and whip on high just until stiff peaks form. Place the finished whipped cream into the refrigerator until the chocolate mixture is chilled.

How to make chocolate curls

Chocolate curls give this pie a gorgeous finish. Let a large Hershey chocolate bar come to room temperature. Using a standard vegetable peeler slowly run the peeler down a side of the chocolate bar. Keep doing it until you have enough chocolate shavings.

    Wonderful and light in texture. Added 2 tbs kahlua by stirring it into melted chocolate before adding to cream cheese mixture. A hit with everyone, even my husband who (she clutches pearls and gasps) doesn't like pie.

    Unsweetened

    Should the cocoa powder be unsweetened or sweeten?
