Nutella Chocolate Cream Pie

Nutella Chocolate Cream Pie

I’m not really sure what to say here.

This is a chocolate cream pie made with Nutella! So yeah, it’s pretty much awesome.

I did yet another spin on one of my favorite pies, the Pioneer Woman’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. A couple weeks ago I made a Biscoff Cream Pie by switching out the Oreos for Biscoff cookies, and the peanut butter for Biscoff spread. It was awesome! So I thought, why not push further? This round I decided to replace the Oreos in the crust with Golden Oreos, and swap out the peanut butter with Nutella. I hate to say I’m a genius, but while eating this pie it was hard not to at least feel kinda smart. Ok, so technically I guess if anyone is the genius here it would have to be Ree Drummond… but I like to think of myself as at least a half bright sidekick.

Alright, I’m gonna stop rambling!

Please try this pie, and let me know what you think!

Step 1
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and grab a food processor!

Dump in 25 oreos. The Pioneer Woman has already done the Oreo math for us... so who's to argue?

and press into place using clean hands (you can tell I'm constantly talking to a four year old).

Follow up with a final pressing using a measuring cup.

I wouldn't say that pressing pie crusts into pans is one of my talents.

Let's just call this one "rustic" and throw it into the preheated oven for about 7 minutes.

This smells soooo good!

Step 14
Thoroughly scrape down the sides of the bowl. Take special care to really scrape underneath the pile of fluff to the bottom to get any dark brown Nutella goodness off the bowl and into the mix!

Give it another good beating until it's beautifully creamy and fluffy.

Fill your cooled pie crust with your creamy chocolatey goodness, and refrigerate for several hours.

Step 17
Whenever you're ready to serve your pie (or eat it yourself... no one is judging here), I think it's best topped with some whipped cream.

The cream cuts the sweet richness of the pie a touch. Plus it's just not chocolate cream pie to me without some whipped cream.

Pour the cream into your mixer, along with the vanilla.

Step 18
Whisk on high around a minute or so. It should look thickened, and leave a soft peak on the beater when you lift it out.

Here's a look inside the bowl at this phase to give you an idea of what to look for.

Add the powdered sugar, and whisk on high for a few more seconds to thicken the cream a bit more.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and whisk one last quick time.

I wanted my whipped cream nice and thick, but whisk it a little less if you prefer a looser whipped cream.

Step 23
Feel free to plop it right on top of your pie, or you can put it into a fancy piping bag like mine... aka a gallon sized ziploc bag.

This one is definitely not for the faint of heart!

I think it's actually sweeter than a regular chocolate pudding pie.

But if you've got a glass of milk and a can-do attitude... why not?!!
