Ingredients

crust

  • 16 chocolate sandwich cookies, like oreos
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

chocolate pudding

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 5 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • 2 ounces milk chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

vanilla whipped cream

  • 2 cups cold heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate, shaved or grated or curled

Instructions 

crust

  • Preheat the oven the 350 degrees F. Add the cookies to a food processor and blend until the cookies are in crumbs. Add the cookies and graham crumbs to a large bowl, stirring to mix. Stir in the melted butter and mix until combined and the ingredients are all wet. Press the crust into a 9-inch pie dish, so it goes up the sides of the dish. Bake for 10 minutes, then let sit and cool while you make the pudding.

  • In a saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add in the egg yolks and whisk until the mixture comes together and is combined. Turn the heat to medium-low and stream in the milk while whisking continuously. Bring the mixture to a bowl, whisking the entire time, then reduce it to a simmer for one minute and continue to whisk. It should thicken. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the filling through the strainer. Whisk in the chocolate, butter and vanilla bean paste until it all comes together and is a thick and delicious chocolate pudding. Cover the surface with a piece of plastic wrap and let cool completely for a few hours.
  • Pour the pudding in the pie crust and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 8ish hours. Right before serving, add the whipped cream and chocolate on top.

  • Add the cold heavy cream to the bowl of your electric mixer. Add in the vanilla extract and beans, then with the whisk attachment beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add in the sugar and beat for another minute. Top the cream pie with the whipped cream and throw the chocolate shavings on top.
