Sweetened Condensed Milk Chocolate Pie

I have loved chocolate pie since I was a little girl. My grandmother would whip up a chocolate pie from scratch before we would even get out of bed. 

I love the way you can make a variety of chocolate pie recipes, from using only simple ingredients, to adding shaved chocolate, or using sweetened condensed milk, like in this case.

I am always on the look out to try different chocolate pie recipes. When I figured out you can add sweetened condensed milk and create a chocolate pie, I was one happy girl. And, I promise you’ll love this chocolate pie with condensed milk.

Pie is a staple in the South, for sure. It’s a delicious treat for any occasion in my book. And, when you add sweetened condensed milk to the recipe, you know it’s going to be a hit. 

If you love recipes made with condensed milk, give this Reese’s peanut butter fudge, or buckeye brownies, a try. 

And for more rich and decadent chocolate pies, try this easy chocolate chess pie. 

What you will need to make this pie:

  • Oven
  • Pie pan
  • Nilla Wafers
  • Powdered sugar
  • Butter
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Cream Cheese

Pie Crust

There are a few steps to the condensed milk chocolate pie, but they are worth every bit.

Start by crushing the Nilla Wafers in a bag. I used about half of the Nilla Wafer box to get what I needed for the pie crust.

Add the Nilla Wafers, cocoa, and powdered sugar to a medium-sized bowl.

Press the mixture into a greased pie pan. A 9″ pie pan is the perfect size. Mine is 9-1/2″ so the pie crust didn’t make it all the way up the side. But, that’s ok, because when the pie cooks, it will still be perfect. 

Tips for the perfect pie crust

If you have a Cuisinart, add the Nilla Wafers and crush them up well. Then add the powdered sugar and unsweetened cocoa and mix.

If you don’t have a Cuisinart, that is ok, just make sure you crush the wafers completely in the bag (mine could have used a little more crushing).

Gluten-free option:

If you would like to make a gluten-free pie crust, you can use gluten-free graham crackers instead of Nilla Wafers.

Pie Filling

For the filling, add the softened cream cheese to a large bowl and mix until the cheese is creamy.

Melt the chocolate chips in a small bowl and add to the mixture. Isn’t this the most delicious-looking picture? I love it.

I’ve had a few readers say they like using milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. If you like your pie a little more milk-chocolatey, just grab the milk chocolate chips at the grocery store instead of the semi-sweet.

Mix in the chocolate. Mmmm…I really think you could make this into a dip, as well. Might have to create a new post for a dip recipe.
