This is the BEST No Bake Chocolate Cream Pie recipe! An Oreo crust is filled with a thick eggless chocolate filling and topped with whipped cream!

I’ve gotta say, Chocolate Cream Pie is one of my weaknesses. It’s rich and silky and creamy and bite after bite goes down SO easily. Good luck just having one slice!

PIN IT NOW TO SAVE FOR LATER!

Tomorrow is a BIG DAY my friends – it’s PI DAY!!! March 14 (3/14) is my favorite day of the year! #mathnerd

Ever since my first blogging pi day, I’ve looked forward to March 14 every year so I can post a new pie in tribute. I think and think and plan and wonder: what should I make for pi day this year? WWAD: what would Albert (Einstein) do?

In the past I’ve made Twix Pie, Peanut Butter Chocolate Cream Pie, Coconut Kiss Brownie Pies, Carrot Cake Pie, a Candy Bar Brownie Pie, and now this NO BAKE Chocolate Cream Pie. I gotta say, I think no-bake pies are my favorite and this chocolate cream version is in my Top 5 pies of all time.

With the rich chocolate filling and Oreo cookie crust, this pie is like a cream pie married a French Silk Pie, but it’s eggless, easy, and takes about 10 minutes to make. If you’re looking for a Pie to celebrate Pi tomorrow, this is IT!

(Where my math nerds at? Anyone else celebrating tomorrow?)

Just look at that filling…it’s dreamy isn’t it? I literally could have shoved my face in it but I was way more civilized: I ate it with a fork straight from the pan. Who needs to dirty a plate?

I know that a chocolate cream pie is super basic, but sometimes basic is best. Plus, this pie reminds me of my childhood: when I was a teenager my friends and I would frequent Baker’s Square on weekends. They were open late and we would be out cruising and end up stopping in for a bite. I’d get a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy and a slice of their French Silk Pie (it’s no wonder I gained 15 pounds my senior year!)

I’d eat the French Silk pie, filling first, then indulge on the pastry crust. I loved the rich and chocolatey flavor of that filling and how the light whipped cream on top would complement it. I never liked chocolate cream pie made with pudding, so the mousse-like filling at Baker’s Square was perfect for me.

When I decided on making this chocolate cream pie for pi day, I wanted to improve upon a traditional French Silk in two ways:

  1. I wanted it to be no-bake, hence the Oreo crust, and
  2. I wanted to make a filling without eggs.

If you look at traditional silk recipes, you cook the eggs and sugar until it coats the back of a spoon, but that just really scares me. Growing up, I had the threat of salmonella drummed into my head repeatedly so just cooking eggs in that way isn’t something I’m in love with doing. Also: I tend to over cook them and they scramble. #EW

THIS Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe is the best of both worlds: it tastes akin to French Silk but is easy to make with no strange ingredients. It comes together in minutes – without pudding mix! It’s a Pi Day Miracle, really.

This No Bake Chocolate Cream Pie with Oreo crust was too hard to resist! The thick chocolate layer and fresh whipped cream makes this the perfect pie to serve when you’re craving chocolate!

Did I mention it only has 6 ingredients (7, if you’re making your crust from scratch). And it only takes about 10 minutes to put together? Serve this alongside pizza for pi day and your family will thank you!

How to make the BEST No Bake Chocolate Cream Pie:

  1. This recipe starts with my Oreo Crust. Feel free to use one you buy at the store, or make mine. Or, if you want a pastry crust, pre-bake my all butter crust recipe and use it instead.
  2. The chocolate filling isn’t pudding: it’s a combination of melted unsweetened chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. Buy a good quality chocolate (from the baking aisle). My favorite baking chocolate is either Ghiradelli or Baker’s. Use a regular sweetened condensed milk (generic is fine).
  3. Pick up a pint of heavy whipping cream – you’re going to make a fresh homemade whipped cream for this pie. Half of it gets folded into the chocolate mixture to give it the fluff and the other half goes on top.
  4. I like to top this pie with chocolate shavings, but you could also dust it with cocoa or use mini chocolate chips.

Do you like the pie plate I used? I have to share: it’s such a pretty and versatile one. It came from Barn Light Electric and is the enamelware pie plate. The pie sliced easy and popped right out, plus they come in pretty colors. Full disclosure: they sent me a pie plate so I could send them some photos of my pie for their site, but didn’t pay me or even ask for a link to them. I just really love the plates and plan to buy several more!

  1. Hi. I’ve just made this. When I poured it in the crust and put the rest of the whipped cream on it, it went off the sides of the pan. I used too small a pan. That was my only problem. Other than that I followed every step!! Hope it turns out good!! 

  2. This pie was super easy to make and extremely delicious! I swapped out the oreo crust for a store bought shortbread crust, also delicious. This recipe is a keeper. Would recommend!

  3. This is my first time reviewing a recipe. This easy pie was decadent, easy and delicious!! Thank you so much for sharing. I will be making this again and again!!

  4. This pie tasted soooooo good! However, I don’t know what I did wrong. The filling did not set. It was still runny when I tried to cut it. It had chilled for at least 4 hours. I’ve put it in the freezer and hope we can enjoy it that way. Any idea what happened?

    1. Make sure the cream is Heavy Whipping Cream and try mixing the cream until it is really stiff. I used a cheap electric hand muxer. Then fold the whipped cream into the chocolate, not just combine it all with a mixer. Finally, chill the chocolate in the pie pan before you add the top layer of whipped cream.

    1. I’m planning on making this recipe today please let me know if setting up was an issue I definitely don’t want it runny n hard to cut

  5. This was amazingly easy and tasty! My only issue is mine turned out runnier than expected. We even put in freezer to see if that would firm it up but it’s still more of a runny pudding consistency than pie. Still super delicious just not terribly pretty looking on plate. What did I do wrong?
