Whipped Chocolate Pie AKA Candy Bar Pie

by Alli

Whipped Chocolate Pie is the easiest dessert you’ll ever make. You only need three ingredients to make this whipped chocolate pie. Yep, that’s all – 3 ingredients! 

You can actually get all the ingredients to make this pie at your local dollar store. I created this recipe when I was part of a dollar store challenge years ago. Our instructions were to make a dessert with ingredients from the dollar store.

As I was browsing the food area, I remembered an easy dessert that my son’s friend had shared with me called Symphony Chocolate Pie.  

Well, the Dollar Tree does not carry the Symphony candy bars, but they do carry Landmark Confections Candy Bars.  Score!

I also needed a large tub of whipped topping. Would a can do? Of course, it would. There was no graham cracker crust in sight, so I had to stop in at the grocery store and grab one.

Ingredients For Whipped Chocolate Pie  

  • Milk Chocolate Bar 
  • Whipped Topping
  • Graham Cracker Crust

You can use any type of milk chocolate bar and I often refer to this dessert as a candy bar pie. I have made this with the Landmark bars at The Doller Tree and Hershey’s bars. 

Feel free to top with chocolate curls and a dollop of whipped topping before serving.

Whipped Chocolate Pie Is So Easy To Make

Break the chocolate bar into pieces. Add the chocolate bar pieces and the whipped topping to a medium-sized saucepan. Heat over low, stirring, until chocolate is melted and the mixture is well combined.

Pour the chocolate mixture into a graham cracker crust.

Cover and place in the freezer for 5-6 hours or overnight. When you’re ready to serve the pie, top with chocolate curls and whipped topping if desired.

How To Make Chocolate Curls 

Chocolate curls are so pretty and can take a dessert from ho-hum to wow! Purchase an extra milk chocolate bar (no nuts) if you want to add chocolate curls to the pie before serving.

You’ll need a vegetable peeler and a large milk chocolate bar at room temperature. With the vegetable peeler, firmly peel strips off of the candy bar.

Keep rotating and peeling as the candy becomes warm in your hands. I always try to see how long I can make the curls before they break off.

Once you have enough curls, place them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them. Chocolate curls are delicate so make sure you handle them with care.

I hate to admit that it is all gone! It tasted like a frozen chocolate milkshake in a graham cracker crust. I’ll make another one for Sunday!

Wo…so simply. I have whipped cream on hand but none of the other ingredients. I guess the dollar tree does hold some secret ingredients after all. The cupcake stands look amazing, too!

I’m going to try it with the Symphony bar, too! I’m so glad you shared the recipe with me. Except for the fact that I could probably eat half of the pie. I’m making it for the grand kids this weekend using your recipe. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Great creativity! I still remember how my kids favorite Chocolate spread was nowhere to find, except at Dollarama. Sometimes it is worth to check the food section there ;).

I didn’t know whipped topping came in cans? This sounds yummy and easy. That’s my kind of desert. I’m pinning this for later.
