You guys know how I love a dessert mash-up, and I have got a great one for you today: Chocolate Chip Cookie Pudding Pie! A lot is going on in this pie, and you are going to love every single thing.
It’s loaded with chocolate chip cookies! And pudding! And whipped cream! The crust is made with store-bought cookies – my favorite short-cut! I suppose you could make chocolate chip cookies from scratch, but I am all about less work with this pie. So hit up the cookie aisle at the store to save yourself some time.
Why We Love This No Bake Cookie Pie
This is an EASY cookie pie recipe, and it’s totally no bake! Plus, it’s totally adaptable to fit your liking.
- Use any flavor chocolate chip cookie (Chips Ahoy has so many different ones now).
- Mix up the pudding flavors: chocolate, banana, cheesecake… you name it!
- Make this sugar-free by using sugar-free cookies, pudding mix, chocolate chips, and whipped topping.
- You could even add candy or nuts!
And don’t forget the decorations – I went all out and added whipped cream, chocolate chip cookies, and mini chocolate chips. It looks like a fancy bakery dessert, doesn’t it?
If all you want is cookies, pudding, and pie, then this is the dessert for you!
Table of Contents
- Chocolate chip cookie crumbs – I use 16 Chips Ahoy Cookies, but use your favorite. You will need 2 ¼ cups of crumbs.
- Melted unsalted butter
- Instant vanilla pudding
- Mini chocolate chips
- Additional chocolate chip cookies plus more for garnish
- Whipped Cream or whipped topping for decorating
How to Make No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
1. Mix the cookie crumbs with melted butter, and then press the mixture into the bottom of a 9″ pie plate. This is kinda messy because the chocolate chips will start to melt. Don’t worry, it’ll all firm back up again. Chill the crust until your pudding is ready.
2. Mix up the pudding mix with the milk following the package instructions. Stir in some mini chocolate chips and more crushed cookies. Pour the pudding into your crust and chill the pie until it’s set.
3. Before serving the pie, top it with whipped cream (or you can use Cool Whip). Decorate with more cookies and chocolate chips and then slice and serve!
A Few Recipe Tips
- For the cookies, I usually just crush them in a bag with a rolling pin. You can also use your food processor.
- If you want to make the pie ahead, make the crust and filling and cover them. They will keep in the refrigerator for two days. You can add the toppings and decorations before serving.
If you want to store the pie with the whipped cream, the pie will hold up for 24 hours. It will last a little longer if you use whipped topping. Any way you make it, this Chocolate Chip Cookie Pudding Pie is the PERFECT dessert for any occasion. We love this easy cookie pie, and I think you will, too!
