Chocolate chip vanilla cream pie is one of those desserts that might surprise you. In fact, when I first started planning it, I had a different idea.
I originally thought it would have caramel in the center. But when I tasted it, I realized that would have made it way too sweet.
It’s actually plenty sweet as it is. I know dessert is supposed to be sweet, but there is a limit.
Ingredients for a Chocolate Chip Vanilla Cream Pie
You’ll need chocolate cream sandwich cookies and a family size of instant vanilla pudding. Also, you’ll need evaporated milk, regular milk, and chocolate chips.
I have certain rules for my desserts. First of all, they have to have flavors my husband and I both enjoy.
Secondly, they have to be quick and easy to make. After all, if they take too much time, I lose the joy of creating.
And finally, dessert has to go with whatever we’re having for the main part of the meal. For example, after a hearty pot roast meal, a slice of this lemon meringue pie is refreshing.
Tonight we’re having mock Swiss steak for dinner. So I decided to create this chocolate chip pie to go with it.
How to Make a Chocolate Chip Vanilla Cream Pie
First of all, turn the cookies into crumbs. I started out by chopping them with my hamburger chopper. Then, I put them in the NutriBullet. You can also use a regular food processor.
Next, press the cookie crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate.
Then mix your canned milk, regular milk, and pudding mix with a mixer. I prefer to use a hand mixer for this job.
Stir in all but a few of the chocolate chips.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
Finally, refrigerate the pie and give it at least a half hour to set.
Serve the pie with whipped cream or your favorite topping.
