Rich Chocolate Cream Pie

I decided to come up with a Rich Chocolate Cream Pie for my youngest son for Thanksgiving this year. Chocolate Cream Pie might be a little unconventional for Thanksgiving but it was a BIG hit. I could tell by the fact the pie was gone by the end of the meal. The result was truly delicious and super easy to make.

This pie takes very little time to prepare and is an easy make ahead option for the holidays for a pot luck. The crust comes together quickly and requires only a few minutes bake time to set. I selected chocolate graham crackers instead of Oreo’s as I like the flavor better. The filling is super quick and is decadent, rich and delicious. With just a few ingredients including cream cheese and melted chocolate, combined with the homemade whipped cream, this filling is fast to make and impressive in the pie dish. I used a pretty ruffle pie dish that looked great on the dining table. 

This Chocolate Cream Pie makes a great base to enhance with other flavors, like peppermint chocolate cream pie. I will be trying that for the Christmas holiday season but will switch the vanilla extract for peppermint extract and to add Andes peppermint crunch baking chips on top with the mini chocolate chips.
