This chocolate mint pie is the perfect dessert recipe for serving to friends and family this holiday season. It's made with AE After Dinner Mint Chocolate Milk! I'm happy to be a brand ambassador for AE Dairy and share delicious recipes with you using their ridiculously good products!
In the process of planning to make this recipe I kid you not I had to go back to the store 3 times to re-buy quarts of AE After Dinner Mint Chocolate Milk. Why? Because we kept drinking it and drinking it and drinking it. I'm not even a big chocolate milk fan but I LOVE this milk! It's only available during the holiday season, which means I can't let a week go by where I don't purchase this limited edition goodness! Oh and this pie. This pie is what my chocolate dreams are made of. It's restaurant quality ya'll. Like THAT good.
Chocolate pie is kind of a standard around the holidays, right? This is the perfect way to spruce up a traditional recipe. Honestly all I did was take my favorite chocolate pie recipe and replace the plain milk with the AE After Dinner Mint Chocolate Milk. The added chocolate and hint of mint made it deeply rich and sinfully delicious. I promise you're going to love this recipe!
I'll be honest, I don't make pie crust from scratch that often. I find the store bought versions to be almost as good and a total time saver. However, when I was making this pie I didn't have one on hand. I reminded myself how simple it is to make a pie crust and it's pretty quick. I used my Roul'pat to roll out my dough on and it's awesome because I can pick up the entire mat with the pie crust on it and then flip it upside down onto my pie dish. Easiest way to transfer a pie crust, ever!
Make sure to poke holes in your pie crust before you bake it. This chocolate pie filling is made on the stovetop so you only bake the crust and then place the filling in after the crust is baked.
I'm pretty sure I'll be adding this to my Thanksgiving pie list. Even my husband who isn't a chocolate fan (HOW is that possible?!) thought this pie was incredibly good. It's sure to be a crowd pleaser this year around the holiday table!
What are your favorite pies for the holidays? Do you have the same ones year after year or do you switch it up? I haven't quite made any traditions yet with specific recipes but I'm feeling like this one might be a repeating pie for years to come!
