Have you noticed I am doing a week of No-Bake desserts?  It’s so gloriously warm/hot/cold here that I have not wanted to turn on my oven.

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie!


(Cold only at night, it was 57 the other night!  But other than that I am LOVING the weather.)

Now I know this is a chocolate pie, but I promise there is no oven involved.

It’s all glorious chocolate.   With a fabulous shortbread crust and smooth homemade whipped cream of course.

My husband said it was “too rich” and “too chocolately” and I was all, “Who are you?  We don’t say such things in this house!”

And he was all, “Are there any Strawberry Shortcake Cups left?”

And I said, “Shame on you!  This is CHOCOLATE!”

And he looked at me in disbelief. “I don’t LIKE chocolate.”

I cried, “I feel like I don’t even KNOW YOU!”

And with that a part of me died.

But then I realized that there is more for me so WOO HOO!

Game on.

rich chocolate truffle pie


  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) prepared shortbread pie crust
  • Optional: Whipped cream for top of pie and extra shortbread cookies to sprinkle.


  1. In microwave dish combine chocolate chips and 3/4 cup of the heavy cream.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.
  3. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Stir in sugar & vanilla. Set aside.
  5. In a stand mixer, beat the remaining cream until soft peaks form (3-5 minutes). Remove bowl from stand mixer and fold in chocolate mixture, 1/3 at a time. Carefully spoon into crust.
  6. Refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving.

Slightly adapted from

If you want to make your shortbread crust from scratch you can use this shortbread cookie crust recipe, and I do recommend using Walkers.  There is just no comparison in rich buttery flavor.

Did I mention that I got this whole pie to myself?  And it was still gone in 2 days.  **shame spiral**

    Hi Amanda! I always love the recipes from your blog. I’m not big on chocolate, but the rest of my family is, so this sounds like something they will definitely enjoy. I always like to copy your entire blog page because I always get enjoyment out of reading all of your comments prior to the recipe. However, for some reason with this entry every time I try to copy all of your comments along with the recipe, it won’t let me. Have you changed something so that we can only copy the recipe now?

    This pie does look super rich, but I would be very okay with that! Love that shortbread crust and the homemade whipped cream on top too. Looking forward to more no bake treats! :)

    That looks sinfully delicious! I wish I had a dairy free substitute for heavy whipping cream. {{sigh}} I will never be able to taste this pie until I do. :(

    I’m from MN too. My family is still there. My mom was just telling me about the awesome weather up there. I bet it is nice to have after all that rain. It’s hot, humid and super dry (bad drought) in my part of Texas. I’ll trade you weather. 😉

    What’s that.
    I mean, does such thing exist?
    I don’t believe so.
    But more pie for you that way, win win!
    I love the look of this dessert!

    Feel thankful your husbands not down with the chocolate truffle pie! More for you! Mines been caught having multiple pieces of dessert the last few nights, I don’t know how he doesn’t gain weight but I still want my extra slice of cake.. Common now! This looks amazing and if we were neighbors I would be right over to help polish off what your husband didn’t want! Pinning this bad boy for later!

    WOW – This is the best chocolate pie – EVER!! I made it over the weekend for my family, they requested a second one, immediately! I still had the heavy whipping cream, so why not! This is now a family favorite, the chocolate is wonderful!
    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    This looks so good, I’m going to make one this week.
    I have some raspberries I need to use up, do you think the pie would still hold up if I swirled raspberry syrup into it?

    Hi there! This looks great! I live in Germany and I have never seen heavy whipping cream here.. Do you know of any substitues? Would a mixture of normal whipping cream and mascarpone work as well?

    Lol. Your Chocolate Truffle Pie is a hit and yes, I know what you meant, “Who are you?,” comment of your husband. My husband is the same way, he more into pecan dessert. “Hello boring, I said to him and all he said is, you have your and I have mine. Well, yes that’s alright with me. The more the merry to me… hee hee … Again thanks for the delicious chocolate-ly dessert.
