Ingredients

  • 1 crust from 1 package (12 oz) frozen Pillsbury™ Deep Dish Pie Crusts (2 Count)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 box (3.4 oz) chocolate pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz cream cheese (from 8-oz package), softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Green food color
  • 2 thin rectangular chocolate and green mints, unwrapped

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Bake pie crust as directed on package for One-Crust Baked Pie Shell. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, stir together milk and pudding mix. Cook over medium heat 7 to 9 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Pour into medium bowl. Place plastic wrap directly over surface of pudding. Refrigerate about 1 hour or just until cooled.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and peppermint extract with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix well with spoon until smooth. Beat in 1/2 cup of the whipped topping. Tint with food color to desired color. Spread in bottom of cooled baked shell.
  • 4
    Stir cooled pudding mixture; spoon and spread evenly over cream cheese layer. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 4 hours until set.
  • 5
    When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap. In small bowl, place remaining 1/2 cup whipped topping. Tint with food color to desired color. Top each serving with a dollop of whipped topping. Chop mints, and sprinkle over whipped topping. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To ensure success of this Creamy Chocolate-Mint Pie recipe, be sure to use pudding that is cooked on the stovetop, and not instant.
  • tip 2
    To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or just until softened.
  • tip 3
    To give your chocolate-mint cream pie a more decorative look, top whipped topping with curls rather than chopped chocolate mint bars. To make curls, firmly press a vegetable peeler against a block or bar of chocolate, and pull it toward you in long, thin strokes.
