Whole No Bake Chocolate Pie with whipped cream and chocolate shavings and red-white striped cloth on brown background

No Bake Chocolate Pie

Jani H. Leuschel
A simple and delicious chocolate pie that doesn't require any oven lovin' or stovetop tending. Make it in the morning and let it chill until after dinner. Great for Valentine's Day, but also wonderful any day at all!

  • Large glass bowl or measuring cup
  • whisk
  • Spatulas, measuring cups and spoons


  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated stevia blend sweetener such as Truvia Sweet Complete
  • Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks from large eggs
  • 3 ounces chocolate chips use dark chocolate chips or good quality chocolate like Ghiradelli or Lindt
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 prepared graham cracker pie crust or cookie crumb


  • In a large glass bowl or measuring cup, combine sugar, cornstarch, granulated stevia blend, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk to blend.
  • Add ½ cup of milk to the dry ingredients, blending until the mixture is smooth. Whisk egg yolks into the chocolate mixture and then, add remaining 1½ cups of milk, stirring to combine.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap, leaving an opening for steam to escape. Cook on high in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove; lift the cover and whisk hard to move heat throughout the chocolate pudding.
  • Replace loose cover and microwave for 1 more minute. Remove and whisk again. It should be very thick. If necessary, microwave for another 30 seconds but know that it will thicken more as it cools.
  • When the mixture is thick enough that a spatula or whisk leaves a deep mark in the pudding, stop cooking. Add butter, chocolate chips, and almond extract and beat to evenly combine all ingredients. Pour into a prepared crust.
  • Let cool on the countertop for 30 minutes. This helps to keep the crust from getting soggy.
    Place the pie in the fridge, loosely covered with foil or plastic wrap for at least four hours.
  • Serve with a dollop of whipped topping, chocolate sauce, and/or chocolate shavings


The nutrition information is for the filling only. A store-bought graham cracker crust adds 100 calories, 5 grams of fat (3 grams saturated), and 14 grams of carbohydrate per serving. 
So, without whipped cream or chocolate drizzle, each slice weighs in at about 235 calories.
If you want to ditch the crust, just pour the filling into a large bowl or small single serving bowls. Enhance with the same kinds of toppings, such as whipped cream and chocolate shavings. You could also sprinkle each serving with cookie crumbs! 🍪
