MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM PIE


Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie is a creamy mint pie loaded with chocolate chips! This easy pie recipe has smooth mint cream filling mixed with chocolate chips & Andes mints all in an Oreo pie crust. Chocolate Mint lovers rejoice!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeThis Mint Chip Cream Pie is a pudding based pie that is kept and served cold. The classic green color with mini chocolate chips will remind you of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with only a handful of ingredients, all inside of an Oreo crust! Today we are talking about pie though and no, this isn’t an ice cream pie. This pie is made with a pudding base. It is creamy, minty, and best of all, super easy to throw together! The entire pie only uses 7 ingredients… and that’s if you count the green food coloring!

Mint Chocolate Chip Desserts

There is just something so refreshing about the combination of chocolate and mint. It happens to be one of my absolute favorite combinations and if you are here visiting this recipe, I’ll just assume it is a favorite of yours too. Mint and chocolate come in all dessert forms, from Mint Chocolate chip cookies, Chocolate Cupcakes with Mint Frosting, Mint Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats to Mint Oreo Mousse Cups. See, proof I love all things chocolate and mint!

Mint Chip Pie is perfectly refreshing in the summer or make it for St Patrick’s Day! Many people love to make it around Christmas Time as well. Really, this pie is perfect at any time of year! I certainly don’t need an excuse to make (and eat) it!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeWhat is in Mint Chip Cream Pie?

Like mentioned above, we only need a handful of easy ingredients for this pie. The one item you may not have is mint extract, but it is only a few dollars at the grocery store and a must purchase for this recipe.

  • Store Bought Oreo Crust- I like to purchase the pre made crust from the grocery store for convenience but you could definitely make your own if you’d like! Use 25 Oreos, crushed, and combine it with 5 tbsp of melted butter. Press it into your pie plate and chill.
  • Vanilla Pudding Mix- We will use the smaller box, 3.2 oz. Definitely use vanilla flavor, and we will be looking for the Instant Pudding!
  • Heavy Cream- To make the pudding thicker which makes the pie thicker and easier to slice, we will use heavy cream instead of the milk that is called for when generally making pudding.
  • Mint Extract- You’ll want mint extract, not peppermint. There is a difference, make sure you are using mint.
  • Frozen Whipped Topping- The whipped topping will need to be thawed before making this recipe. One 8 oz container is all you’ll need.
  • Green Food Coloring- This isn’t a requirement and won’t change the final taste of the pie, so if you’d rather not use the food coloring this is something you could skip out on.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Andes Mints Bits 

How to make Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeHow to make Andes Mint Cream Pie

Making this cream pie is very easy, just a little measuring and mixing is all. First, we will mix together the pudding mix with the heavy cream and mint extract with a whisk. Stir briskly, smoothing out any lumps before it sets up. Within a few minutes it will be very thick.

The next step is to mix the pudding into the whipped topping. You can fold it in or whisk it together, just mix until everything is combined and smooth. Now is the time to add in that food coloring. I used about 5 drops of green food coloring. Finally, fold in the mini chocolate chips.

Spread the pie filling into the pie crust and refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving. Feel free to top the pie with the remaining whipped topping and sprinkle with Andes mints if desired.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeHow to Store a pie

Storing a cream pie such as this one needs to be done in the refrigerator. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve and place back in the fridge immediately after serving. Keeping the pie out of the fridge for too long will result in a runny pie and one that is not safe for eating anymore.

Freezing pie

This pie freezes great! Freeze the entire pie or by the slice. To thaw a whole pie, place in the fridge for 24 hours before serving. To thaw just a slice, allow it to set on the counter for 15-20 minutes or until thawed.

COCONUT MACADAMIA NUT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES


Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies loaded with sweet coconut, chocolate chips & chopped macadamia nuts! Over the top chocolate chip cookie recipe with fantastic flavor, buttery crisp edges and a soft & chewy center.

Coconut Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip CookiesThese coconut cookies are tender, soft, and sweet. Make them bigger or smaller depending on how soft or many you want out of each batch. Share them with others, or keep them for yourself, I won’t judge.

Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies

While in the mood for incredible cookies, I stumbled upon Mrs. Fields recipe for coconut macadamia nut cookies and the true gem that they are. We tried a few variations, but kept coming back to the original recipe~ it’s that good.

Normally I stick to the standard 1″ sized cookies but there’s something really special about making these the larger 2″ size. The butter in the recipe makes the edges of the cookie crispy while the inside is soft and chewy. I put baking times for both sizes though so you can choose what you’d like to do. {Pssst- make the larger sized ones!}

Coconut Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip CookiesCan you freeze chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies?

Absolutely, and they freeze pretty well too! Simply let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to 3 months. To thaw and eat just place the cookies on the counter for a few hours.

Can I use a different type of chocolate chip?

Of course! White chocolate chips, milk chocolate or even dark chocolate chunks all go great with this fabulous flavorful cookie recipe! Pick the chip you like the best or mix and match for a unique experience.

Stick the tray in the freezer for 10 minutes. After the dough has chilled, bake the cookies for about 15 minutes, checking on the cookies after 10 minutes and then rotating the tray to ensure even browning. This recipe makes 12-13 cookies.

If you opt to make the 1″ cookies, chill for about 5 minutes and then bake for about 10 minutes.

Notes

Note: Because of the amount of butter in them, these cookies turn out a tad bit darker than most other cookies. It’s okay. Mrs. Fields’ turned out the same way. I promise you didn’t over bake them. Yields 12-18 cookies, depending on if you use a medium or large cookie scoop!

Coconut Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

What’s the difference between bread flour and regular flour?

Bread flour has a higher protein content which gives baked goods a better rise. This means that if you use it for the cookies the flavor will be a little different, and the cookies will be fluffier and taller too.

Can I freeze my cookie dough for later?

If after making the cookies you want to only bake a few or save it for a later time, go right ahead. Freeze the dough flat on a baking sheet until solid and then transfer to a baking sheet. When you’re ready to bake, place them on a baking sheet, and preheat the oven. By the time the oven is preheated the cookies should be thawed enough to bake as directed above.

Coconut Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip CookiesHow long do these cookies last?

Not long! Haha! Honestly, if you kept them in an airtight container on the counter the shelf life is about 5 days, but with this recipe making a small batch and tasting so gosh darn good, it’s hard to see them lasting that long!
