Mint Chocolate Cream Pie recipe is just what your weeknight needs!
Pie is a dessert that I’ve yet to master. I should be more clear. I haven’t mastered a made from scratch crust with a fruit filling type of pie. It’s something that I definitely enjoy eating, but they just don’t turn out the way I would like.
That’s why I really enjoy making easy cream pies. Chocolate Pie is my favorite, but every now and then I love to mix it up and add the extra flavoring of mint.
My recipe is made up of pantry items you might already have. I like to pick up a few extra premade graham cracker crusts so I always have them on hand. You most definitely could make your’s from scratch.
Another item I always like to keep in my pantry is evaporated milk. It’s makes such a difference when using pudding mixes for pie filling. Using evaporated milk helps it holds up a bit better than just regular milk and tastes fabulous. I use the same method when I make my Triple Chocolate Cream Pie.
