Chocolate Cherry Pie Ingredients

Chocolate Cherry Pie raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 9-inch chocolate pie crust
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 21-ounce can of cherry pie filling
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub Cool Whip (plus more for topping the pie)
  • 1½ cups semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, divided
  • Maraschino cherries, for decoration (optional)

PRO TIP:

If you want Cool Whip to top the pie, purchase a 16-ounce tub. You will need 8 ounces for the pie itself and then can use the remaining to pipe swirls on top of the pie for decoration, as shown. You can also slice the pie and serve it with a dollop of whipped topping.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

COOL WHIP: Alternately, whip 1 cup of heavy cream with a few tablespoons of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Use this whipped cream for piping or topping the pie.

How to Make This Chocolate Cherry Pie Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Make sure the cream cheese is softened and the Cool Whip is completely thawed so that the ingredients will combine smoothly and you don’t end up with lumps in the pie.

STEP ONE: In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until light and creamy.

STEP TWO: Use a spatula to stir in the cherry filling, and then fold in the Cool Whip.

STEP THREE: Fold in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

STEP FOUR: Spread the filling into the chocolate pie crust.

PRO TIP:

Place your crust in the foil pie pan inside a glass pie plate for added stability when transporting it to and from the fridge.

STEP FIVE: Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours to set the pie. Top with dollops or piped swirls of Cool Whip and the remaining mini chocolate chips. Add maraschino cherries to the decoration or serve alongside.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: This dreamy pie can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. If the pre-made pie crust comes with a plastic insert, flip it over and use it to cover your leftover pie.

    Delicious recipe!
    I always follow the recipe the first time, then make adjustments and changes afterwards.
    My next time, I will try a graham cracker crust, but add a chocolate drizzle.
