Red Velvet Chocolate Cream Pie


Cookie Crust

  • 30 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Pie Filling

  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cups Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. For Cookie Crust, crush or blend chocolate cookies into crumbs. Mix with melted butter until combined.
  2. Press chocolate cookie crumb mixture into 9-inch deep dish pie to create a pie crust. Set aside.
  3. Heat buttermilk in microwave or on stove until hot.
  4. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cocoa powder, sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
  5. Add in hot buttermilk and whisk until smooth.
  6. Add red food coloring and whisk.
  7. Cook and whisk over medium heat until mixture starts to boil. As soon as it starts to boil, start a timer for 4 minutes. Whisk for 4 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and whisk in extract and butter until butter is melted.
  9. Pour into prepared pie crust. Cover pie with plastic wrap, letting it touch and cover top of the pie. (It'll stick to top of pie and prevent it from forming a film.)
  10. Refrigerate at least 6 hours, but preferably 24 hours to let flavor settle in.
  11. Top with Crème Chantilly (optional).
