I had a graham cracker crust and a jar of Nutella® to use up, and this recipe was born. This pie takes literally 5 minutes to make and is similar to a fluffy chocolate mousse pie, but with a flavor twist. Enjoy!

This was the headline desert at a fine dinind restaurant where I worked. The only differance was, I used fresh made whipped cream, instead off cool whip. I also would add heath chips, mini chocolate chips, peanutbutter chips, the possibilities are endless. You can also serve it frozen, which is what we did. Delicious! :-) Read More

I've made this more than once and modified it slightly each time. First instead of graham cracker crust I used the chocolate Oreo cookie crust. Next I omitted the botton layer of Nutella and instead scattered chocolate chips for a little crunch now and then. Then to reduce calories you can use light Cool Whip and low fat cream cheese. Make sure you soften the cream cheese first. After you remove the cream cheese from its wrapper place it in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds which makes the perfect consistency for blending. Mix with the Nutella till the cream cheese is thoroughly blended. Add Cool Whip and chocolate chips. I love that no baking is necessary. Use less Nutella for less chocolaty taste and density. It's all good. It's quick and easy and super for taking to dinner parties potlucks preparing for Thanksgiving or having guests. Prepare the night before and forget it till you need it. Use the cover that comes over the pie crust as the pie cover and it'll stay moist and be easy to transport. Enjoy! Read More

This is 5 star just as it is and so versatile. Some options: 1) Use different crusts as others have said. 2) When dividing the Nutella I doubled the amount you spread on the crust and used less for the filling. 3) Instead of Cool Whip I used real whipping cream whipped to stiff peaks and folded 1 cup into the chocolate/cream cheese mixture. Gives the pie a more dense texture and quite delicious. 4) Top with slivered almonds. 5) Haven't tried this yet but I'm thinking some mint extract in the filling? So many pie options so little time.

I made this for my son's birthday dessert. I used Oreo cookies for the crust and made individual servings in clear Solo cups. Topped with chopped peanuts and chocolate curls. Everyone loved them. Stored in freezer until we ate them for a nice cool summer treat. Sorry for not getting a very good picture but I had ten hungry people waiting...Thanks Christina for an easy yummy dessert recipe.

I loved this pie!! Microwaving the cream cheese for 30 seconds as another reviewer suggested was an excellent idea it really made the filling easier to mix and lump free. I used an Oreo crust instead of graham or chocolate. The first helping we ate after having cooled it in the fridge for 4 hours. The rest we popped into the freezer and had the next day. I highly recommend only eating it frozen. It didn't turn into a hard rock like an ice cream pie remained smooth and creamy. Read More

OMG...all I have to say is this is heaven on a plate!! I made it today and brought it into work and the consensus was that this was such a delicious dessert. With the crunch from the grahm crust the layer of nutella and the smooth creamy filling it reminded me of a ferrero rocher chocolate candy so if you like them you'll love this recipe. I did not modifications and followed the recipe as stated. Thank you again...it was absolutely delicious and so so so easy to make!! Read More

We loved this pie. It disappeared fast. Super easy to make. I used a chocolate graham crust and topped each serving with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Will be making this again for a Summertime treat. Thanks Christina Read More
