As much as we love fall spices and desserts, we can use a break from pumpkin everything from time to time. Desserts like this no-bake chocolate pie recipe can be a refreshing alternative this time of year.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s completely no-bake, meaning you don’t have to turn on your oven or worry about messing this pie up! Not only that, but you’ll love the texture of the no-bake, chocolate filling.
If you enjoy chocolate mousse, then you are going to love this chocolate pie recipe. Because this is a no-bake recipe, the chocolate filling in this pie remains cool, creamy, and light as air.
The airy texture is a welcome contrast to the deliciously crisp, chocolate cookie crust. If you’re wondering how this chocolate pie has a no-bake crust, let us just say this: the freezer is your best friend.
The crust for this chocolate pie is whipped up with chocolate cookie crumbs and melted butter and packed along the bottom and edges of a pie pan. The crust gets placed in the freezer until it’s frozen and set, then filled with the chocolate mousse filling.
We think this chocolate pie recipe makes for a wonderful holiday dessert because it won’t take up any room in your oven, which is often heavily used and needed for other holiday dishes. It’s also a nice option to have on the table for guests who aren’t big fans of pumpkin or other traditional fall flavors.
