CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY CREAM PIE

After enjoying holiday pies such as Marshmallow Pumpkin Pie and S’mores Brownie Pie, I have been craving a more summery fruit pie.

Yet not your typical apple pie, because I’m already craving and looking forward to all the berries!

I don’t think there’s a better way to entice spring and summer than with this Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pie. Also known as: the best thing I’ve ate this year. Let’s just forget that it’s only February.

While a dessert like Key Lime Margarita Pie Is full-on summer, this cream pie combines the richness comfort of chocolate with dreamy raspberry.

I tell you, it’s the perfect combination. I just love chocolate raspberry recipes!

This cream pie has a lot of cream cheese in it, as you’ll see. So the taste very much resembles a cheesecake. Yet it’s not quite as dense and heavy.

Usually cream pies aren’t layered, and I think that’s what I love most. Taking a bite with all three layers is like heaven.

How to Make Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pie:

  1. Bake a pie crust as per package directions.
  2. The first layer to fill the crust is the rich chocolate layer made with chocolate chips and cream cheese
  3. Next is the creamy raspberry layer with the ingredients of cream cheese, raspberry jello and whipping cream.
  4. The final layer which should not be missed is a whipped topping. It’s your choice whether it’s all over the cream pie, or in a pattern. Personally I suggest both!
  5. Eat and enjoy each and every bite!

This recipe is really simple to make, and actually requires few ingredients.

It would be a wonderful dessert for a special occasion, so for those that think this would make the ideal Valentine’s Day dessert, you are right!

Yet this is a cream pie that could be made on any ordinary day. Because sometimes you just want/need an incredible treat.

Enjoy this wonderful cream pie recipe. Make sure to save and bookmark for those summer days too, it’s one more thing to look forward to with the new season.

This Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pie features chocolate and raspberry layers that taste like cheesecake. Topped with whipped cream and fresh raspberries, this is one dessert recipe that stands out!

Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust, cooked
  • 1.5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 oz cream cheese, divided
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Jell-O Raspberry Powder Gelatin Mix, I used 85g package
  • whipped cream topping
  • fresh raspberries, for garnish

Instructions

1. If you haven't done so already, cook a pie crust as per package directions, remove from heat and allow to cool

CHOCOLATE LAYER:

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips.

3. Using a stand mixer {or hand mixer}, beat 4 oz of the cream cheese, then add in the melted chocolate and mix on low to combine. This is your chocolate layer.

4. Pour the chocolate layer into the cooked pie crust and set aside.

RASPBERRY LAYER

5. Wash stand mixer bowl and attachment, then add in the remaining 4oz of cream cheese and beat until smooth.

7. Slowly add in the heavy whipping cream and again beat until the lumps are gone. If really thick, add in 1/4 cup more heavy whipping cream.

8. Add in the raspberry JELL-O powder and whip until peaks form, then spoon this layer over the chocolate layer.

9. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving

WHIPPED TOPPING LAYER

10. Add whipped topping layer, or in a pattern of your choosing. I suggest both actually.

11. Top with fresh raspberries for garnish, and enjoy!

Notes

- You can use a homemade pie crust for this recipe, or a store bought crust. Just make sure to cook it!

- You can decrease the calories by using low-fat or light cream cheese and/or whipped topping. YET, this will result in runnier layers and the light whipped topping melts fast and doesn't hold it's shape well.
