Chocolate Cream Pie

One of my favorite desserts is Chocolate Cream Pie.  I always order it when I visit one of my favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurants on the town square in my hometown.   A few months back, I surprised my family by trying to copycat the restaurant’s very delicious Chocolate Cream Pie.  I am all about quick and simple recipes and this one is a perfect match for me!  This is a great everyday treat!  I’m so excited to share my fabulous Chocolate Cream Pie recipe with you today.  I know you’ll love it!

You will need just a few ingredients:  a package of cream cheese, a bit of sugar, some milk, COOL WHIP, a graham cracker crust, a package of instant chocolate mix and some miniature chocolate chips.  Yep, that’s it!

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk until it’s smooth.  Fold in 1 cup of COOL WHIP and spread evenly into crust.

Next, mix the pudding mix with the rest of the milk for 2 minutes and then let it sit for 2 minutes.   Layer over the cream cheese mixture.

Put the Chocolate Cream Pie in your refrigerator and let it chill until set.  Before serving, garnish your  pie with the rest of the COOL WHIP and some mini chocolate chips.  Enjoy!

    I absolutely love this pie! I made it last year and I just made it again tonight but I was wondering if anyone else was having the same problem as me…I feel like there is way too much cream. I didn’t think about it tonight but I think last year, I just used the same cream on 2 pies because if I put all the cream in the pie crust, it fills the whole pie with no room for the chocolate…am I doing something wrong? 1 cup is 8Oz so I just got an 8oz tub of whipped cream and it is just way too much! Maybe in a couple of days I should try just using half of a tub, when I make it again for thanksgiving?

    • I think it just depends on how large of a pie you make?!!? I need to make another this week…totally craving it! XO, Aimee

    Every recipe I’ve seen for this dessert calling for pudding to be made from pudding mix. Is there any particular reason not to just buy snack packs of pudding? Because that’s what I did and now I feel like I should go buy pudding mix.

  3. Looks good! Throw in some sliced banana = chocolate banana cream pie. Soooo good.

  4. On my list for the weekend! Thanks for sharing.

  5. This reminds me a little of my peanut butter pie recipe, and how easy it is to make. I’d love it if you would share this at my Saturday Spotlight link party.


    Hope to see you there!
