GERMAN SWEET CHOCOLATE PIE — Chocolate, sweetened cream cheese and whip cream combine in this incredibly easy, decadent cream pie that can be made ahead and kept in the freezer. So easy and so convenient!
My family is very opinionated when it comes to pie, but this German Sweet Chocolate Pie is one we all agree on. It really is one of my all-time favorites!
This pie isn’t overly sweet or rich, which unfortunately means I can easily eat more than one piece. It reminds me of a creamy chocolate mousse, which is probably why I love it so much.
I used to make this for my grandfather, and we would eat it together! Making this brought back happy memories! Thank you for this! ~ Jennifer
I usually make it for the holidays, but it would also be a great summertime pie. I like to use a chocolate crumb crust, but a regular graham cracker crust, or even a baked pastry-style crust will work.
Sometimes I make my chocolate crumb crust from scratch, and sometimes I buy one that’s premade. Either way, my family devours this pie, and everyone who tries it give it rave reviews.
I’ve also made individual servings of this pie in mini Mason jars. I’m not sure why it is, but people always seem impressed when you serve them their own little dessert.
I love that this pie goes in the freezer to set, so I can make it weeks ahead of time and I have one less thing to prepare for my holiday meal.
I’ve been making this pie for years!! Maybe even decades? It’s delicious and so easy to make. ~ Katy
In fact, I usually make two and keep one in the freezer for another day. Leftover pie should be stored in the refrigerator. Since it does go in the freezer, I make this pie in a regular aluminum pie tin, rather than in glass or ceramic.
This German Sweet Chocolate Pie really is a must make. Once you try it, I’m sure it will become one of your favorites too!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT GERMAN SWEET CHOCOLATE PIE
This delicious pie is one that my family has been making for quite some time but I switch it up a bit by using the OREO chocolate crusts for more chocolatey goodness! ~ Beth
I love this recipe for the filling. I have used this to fill cannoli, cream puffs, to frost layer cakes, used as chocolate mousse, and have served frozen as pie with a thin layer of seedless raspberry jam at the bottom, topped with whipped cream. Delicious whatever it’s used for ~ Sandy
This pie is so easy to make, my family loves it. I make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It takes all of ten minutes but it looks like you worked all day on it. Thanks for such a neat recipe. ~ Barbara

Who Dished It Up First: This is one of those recipes my mom pulled off the Cool Whip container years ago. It’s been a holiday tradition in our family ever since.
What a beautiful pie! It makes me want some 😀 Check out my post about raw chocolate, I think you’d be interested!
Looks really fabulous – just the kind of thing my family would enjoy. I’m not from the US though so I am not sure what this is: 1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip topping, thawed… is there an alternative I could use that might be available to me?
Whipped cream would be the equal substitute sweetened. Cool Whip is the name of the product, looks like whipped cream, but already made.
I love this recipe for the filling. I have used this to fill cannolis, cream puffs, to frost layer cakes, used as chocolate mousse, and have served frozen as pie with a thin layer of seedless raspberry jam at the bottom, topped with whipped cream. Delicious whatever it’s used for
Thanks for visiting my blog and letting me know about the cool whip! I searched online after reading the recipe here and read that an 8 ounce package of cool whip is equal to 3 cups… would you agree with that? I really want to make this for the kids! (OK, myself too! 😉 )
Yes that could be the equal—-sorry didn’t think of volume
My goodness that looks fantastic! And so easy! I’m not a baker but I feel as though I can do this. Thank you!
I’m making thus for Sunday dinner but have a question. Is this pie served frozen or refrigerated? I know it says to freeze to set it but to refrigerate leftovers so I’m not sure. Shoot me an email when you get a moment. Thanks hon!
We cut it frozen and let the slices softened up a bit before eating. It’s SO delicious!

This delicious pie is one that my family has been making for quite some time but I switch it up a “bit” LOL by using the OREO chocolate crusts for more chocolately goodness!

That is so great! Thank you for sharing. It’s definitely one of our favorites.
I used to make this back home but now I live abroad. I don’t have access to baker’s chocolate or coolwhip. Would semi-sweet or milk chocolate bars/chips work fine? And homemade whipped cream?
