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!

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!

  6. What a great pie for hot summer days. I love no-bake cake 🙂 Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  7. This was delicious! The whole family loved it. Thank you for a keeper of a recipe!

  8. Hi Dorothy, I have a couple of questions. 1) In the Ingredient List, it says to add 1 teaspoon (15ml) of vanilla extract. Did you mean 1 tablespoon? One teaspoon would be 5ml. and one tablespoon would be 15ml. 2) In step 4 of the directions, it says to “Place in prepared pan. ” I couldn’t find the direction for preparing the pan. I love your site and have used and enjoyed many of your recipes. I always look forward to receiving emails from you. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  9. need recipe foe no bake peanut butter chocolate pie

  10. can’t wait to make the no bake chocolate cream pie. I want to make it for thanksgiving, and I love the fact that there are no eggs in the recipe. sounds like a winner

  11. Just made for Thanksgiving tomorrow. My finger licking says it’s a winner! Fair warning for those coming after me, there was too much filling for the premade oreo crust. It all my eagerness I dumped it all in only to have it spill over the sides when I put the whipped cream on. In all it’s ugliness, it’s sure going to taste good!

  12. This pie is sure to be delicious!  I just finished making it for my Thanksgiving chocolate pie, also!  My husband usually makes a chocolate mousse pie, that is delicious, but this year he didn’t get to it. I found this recipe, it looked easy enough for me (I can follow directions, just don’t love the mess of cooking) yada yada, I made it and it’s delicious!  (I too, did some taste tests)  I believe this to be a rival to my husbands mousse!  I’m a bit worried when he tries it tomorrow.  😂

  13. This didn’t work for me.  When I went to add the remaining whipped cream, it sunk. I ended up tossing it and headed for the store to buy a pre-made pie.  :,(

  14. You were alsoabsolutelySPOT ON with your no bake chocolate cream pie receipe!!! It was a hit for thanksgiving dessert, more so than the made from scratch pumpkin. Family and friends Loved it so much that i am making 3more as we speak. Thank you and keep up the deliciously mouth watering yummies!!!

  15. SOOOOO….delicious! But have a question…Rating for taste!

    I made one and it refused to firm up. Served as a pudding in bowls…Daughter made one in her home and same issue. We both believe we followed instructions and even refrigerated overnight. 

    Any ideas? Thanks!

  16. Hi there! I tried the chocolate creme pie recipe! It was delicious! The only problem is that it was runny and wouldn’t set for a couple of days. How do I make it set?

  17. I’ve made this about 5 times and it has been a hit each time!! I have to eat Gluten Free so the only swap I make is i get the gf Joe Joe’s from trader Joe’s for the crust.

    I want to make these into bars for a Xmas party. Do you think they would hold up if put in freezer??
