When it comes to chocolate cream pie nothing beats a decadent homemade custard topped with freshly whipped cream. This is the ultimate chocolate pie for chocolate lovers!
Chocolate and pie. Together, these superpowers of yum unite in this dreamy dessert. We love this pie because it satisfies a craving for something sweet and a craving for chocolate. It’s basically a two for one. We love the way the light, airy whipped cream feels on top of the rich chocolate and the crunchy crust. You will love it too. Just remember to play fair and share, cause it won’t be easy.
This recipe includes everything you’ll need to make this pie all-from-scratch, but if you prefer, you can use prepared whipped cream or a prepared pie crust.
What kinds of pie crust can I use?
You can use a graham cracker crust, which is what we love best as it balances out the richness of the chocolate filling quite nicely. Alternately, you can use a pastry crust, a chocolate graham cracker crust, or even an Oreo crust. The crust in this recipe is super simple, but if you prefer, you can always opt for a store-bought, prepared variety.
What is stabilized whipped cream? Can I use canned whipped cream or cool whip?
Stabilized whipped cream is whipped cream with a little bit of gelatin in it to help it to keep its form for several days. Click here to learn more about stabilized whipped cream. If you use canned whipped cream or cool whip we recommend putting the cream on individual slices as it is served.
