This chocolate cool whip pie is only 3 ingredients and comes together very easily.
My mom used to always make this simple dessert for holidays or anytime we just needed something a little sweet. I remember impatiently waiting for this pie to harden in the freezer and licking the batter bowl clean while I did.
This is my favorite Thanksgiving day contribution because it’s a no stress dessert. All you need is some chocolate, some cool whip, and a pie crust.
This is literally beyond easy to make! If you’re on dessert committee this year, this cool whip pie is perfect. Another dessert option I have would be our extremely popular pumpkin bars recipe. They are topped with cream cheese frosting and are very addicting. My family always LOVES it when I make them.
How to make this chocolate cool whip pie:
To make this dessert all you do is melt a giant bar of chocolate and then mix it with some softened cool whip. We always use the “lite” cool whip, but feel free to use whichever kind you want.
After you get that mixture, just pour it into a pre-made oreo pie crust. Sometimes I like to not mix it so well so that the pie filling has some white swirls in it. Still tastes the same, I just like the way it looks a little more.
Finally, just place this pie into the freezer until it firms up. This usually takes an hour until it’s ready to serve.
Oreo Pie Crust
If your grocery store does not have the oreo pie crust you can always make your own. It’s very simple you just need some oreos (with the filling scraped out) and a little butter and of course a pie dish.
If you’re thinking it would taste better if you left the oreo filling in the mixture, you’d be wrong. I tried that once and it was a sweetness overload. So, scrape out the filling, as tedious as that is, and proceed with the following instructions:
Take about 30 oreos and crush them in a food processor then mix it with about 5 tbs of melted butter. Press it into the pie tin and bake at 350* for 8 minutes.
Oreo pie crusts are a little harder to find when it’s not the holiday season, but I don’t you should have a problem if you’re making this near Thanksgiving. But, worst case scenario, you can always make the crust following those instructions.
- Oreo pie crust
- 1 tub Cool Whip
- 1 "giant" size bar of chocolate
- Melt chocolate bar and mix with softened Cool Whip
- Fill pie crust with Cool Whip mixture
- Place in freezer for 1 hour or until firm
