A Chocolate Pie State of Mind

I’ve been on a bit of a pie kick lately. But honestly, can you blame me? So many of my childhood summer memories involve pie, so when the weather starts to warm up, I start to get cravings. I’m not choosing favorites (that’d be like saying I have a favorite kid!) but this Chocolate Cream Pie is way up there on my list. It’s the perfect summer pie. It’s cool and creamy and everything you want a summer dessert to be.

Semi-sweet chocolate makes the filling of this luscious pie rich and sweet, but not too sweet. With frozen whipped topping in the filling and dolloped on top, and semi-sweet chocolate shavings all over, it really is a chocolate dream pie.

How to Make Chocolate Cream Pie

Preheat oven to 375°F. Pre-bake the pie crust. See my Complete Guide to Pie Crust for the dough recipe and how to pre-bake the pie crust. Let cool completely before filling.

In a large microwavable bowl, melt the chocolate and 1/3 cup milk on medium power in 30-second intervals, stirring at each interval, until completely melted. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

Stir in the vanilla and remaining 1/3 cup milk. Fold in one (8 ounce) container of the thawed whipped topping until well incorporated and filling is smooth.

Spread the chocolate filling evenly into the baked and cooled pie crust.

Dollop and gently spread the remaining container of thawed whipped topping over the top of the fudge filling and then garnish it with shaved or curled chocolate. Cover loosely and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Store covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
