Easy Chocolate Cream Pie
Chocolate cream pie gets its light and creamy filling from whipped cream. Traditional versions have you make fresh whipped cream (I have a classic cream pie made this way) to fold into the filling. I have a chocolate cream pie with a fresh whipped cream filling, but sometimes I don’t want to worry about whipping cream.
So, I have a shortcut for you: Whipped topping. AKA Cool Whip. Unlike whipping your own cream for the filling, using a whipped topping makes this pie foolproof. It sets up perfectly every time, has that rich and creamy texture, and it’s so much easier to make.
We’re talking three ingredients for the filling plus a cookie crust!
