Creamy Chocolate Icebox Pie
Yields: 1 (9-inch) pie
  • Crust:
  • 2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Filling:
  • 1⁄4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1⁄2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 (3.9-ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 1⁄3 cups whole buttermilk
  • Garnish: whipped topping, cocoa powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. For crust: In a medium bowl, stir together crushed cookies and melted butter. Using the bottom of a measuring cup, press mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
  3. Bake until set, approximately 4 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.
  4. For filling: In a small bowl, microwave cream until very hot, approximately 1 minute. Add chocolate morsels, stirring until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture into bottom of prepared crust. Refrigerate until firm, approximately 15 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together pudding mix and buttermilk until smooth. Spoon pudding into crust, smoothing top with an offset spatula. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on surface of filling. Refrigerate until firm, approximately 3 hours.
  6. Spread with whipped topping; garnish with cocoa, if desired.
