‘Tis the season for pie. Lots and lots of pie! The other night, I had a chocolate craving that hit me like no other. I wanted something decadent and chocolatey and I wanted it quickly. Enter the 5 minute chocolate cheesecake icebox pie. This no-bake dessert literally takes all of 5 minutes to put together, making it the perfect go-to recipe to satisfy a chocolate craving.
- 1 small box of chocolate instant pudding
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 4 oz Neufchatel Cheese softened (or cream cheese can be substituted)
- 1 8 oz tub of whipped topping
- 1 pre-made OREO pie crust can be found with other pre-made pie crusts at the grocery store in the baking aisle
In a mixing bowl, with a hand mixer cream the softened Neufchatel cheese.
Add the milk and chocolate instant pudding. Mix together until smooth.
Fold in the whipped topping until uniform in color.
Add the chocolate cheesecake mixture to the pre-made oreo pie crust.
Cover and refrigerate 1 hour to allow the pudding mixture to set completely and chill. Keep refrigerated.
