When it comes to pie, there are many different varieties. My Mocha Cream Pie recipe is a hybrid so good that it is sure to be on heavy rotation in your house after you try it.
Mocha Cream Pie Mocha Cream Pie Recipe is three layers of delicious pie: brownie base, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream top all laced with coffee.
Mocha Cream Pie is a family favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas. That’s not to say it is a holiday pie, but at our house, we make it two times in two months and we like it that way.
Maybe its because those silky layers of chocolate and mocha are the perfect light dessert to be served with a cup of coffee or cocoa on a cold night.
One might think since Mocha Cream Pie a cold pie that its place is during the summer months, but I am an equal opportunity pie eater. And this pie, well, it’s perfect all year round.
Another perk of Mocha Cream Pie? Make it ahead of time and pop it in the fridge. No reheating, no timing things so it cools perfectly by the ned of the meal. Just slice and serve.
Start by baking a rich layer of brownie laced with coffee. Top it with rich chocolate pudding. And finally, seal in those two layers with a second coffee spiked layer of whipped cream.
Word to the wise: You can use fancy coffee here if you like, but almost any will do. If you really want to go wild try a flavored variety. Vanilla, hazelnut, or caramel would work well!
