It’s easy, you can make it ahead of time, and it’s got chocolate. Sound like a perfect holiday dessert? It is.
I’ve made this no-bake chocolate pumpkin pie from the Sweet Beet and Green Bean blog several times and I love it. The combination of pumpkin and chocolate was not something that sounded wonderful to me initially. But Jacqueline is right in that you don’t get the pumpkin flavor immediately, but more of a spice cake type of taste which is so wonderful with the creamy texture of the filling.
The recipe calls for an Oreo type crust, but I’ve also made it with a traditional graham cracker crust, which I liked just as well. I thought the graham flavor was a nice contrast to the chocolate. The filling is a very rich, chocolate, that’s for sure.
The absolute best part about this recipe is that it is no-bake! I make the day before any party and I really think it tastes better the second day anyway.
