Chocolate Cream Pie

This pie is so easy, it scarcely qualifies as a recipe. But it is delicious and pleasing to both kids and adults, making it the perfect dessert. I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of a slice for you to see, but there was no time, it was consumed so quickly!

This is another recipe from my lovely mother-in-law, Kelly.

Chocolate Cream Pie

serves 8

1 oreo pie crust (you can make your own if you like, I'm a slacker)
8 oz whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz cream cheese
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk

Pour whipping cream, sugar and vanilla into a large bowl.

With your mixer (or by hand) whisk the ingredients together until soft peaks form. You want it to be about the consistency of cool whip. I suppose you could use a container of cool whip instead, but this way is yummier.

Add cream cheese to the whipped cream.

Fold cream cheese and whipped cream together until evenly mixed.

In a separate bowl, beat pudding mix and milk together for 2 minutes.

Spoon whipped cream mixture into pie crust, almost to the top. Be sure to leave room for the pudding, you might have a little extra whipped cream, but I'm sure you'll find a use for it.

Pour pudding on top and put in fridge to chill. Serve cold with a dollop of whipped cream on top, if desired.

  1. This looks so good! If only I could eat oreos, and if only you could get chocolate pudding mix in Australia. So I'll just sit here and droll over your pictures, reminiscing about the wonders of that pudding stuff.

  2. Isie, you can't get pudding mix in Australia?! Even worse, you can't eat oreos?! How do you survive?

    Only kidding, that is sad although I am sure this recipe could be improvised and that pudding could be made from scratch somehow... Although that takes away from the store-bought, easy charm of this recipe...
