Thin Mint Chocolate Pie - This is one of the easiest and most delicious pie recipes!

Are you team pie or team cake? I am starting to think that pie might be better. It is certainly faster and easier to prepare. This Thin Mint Chocolate Pie is one of my favorites. I have been making it for years. I love its ease of preparation, and the constancy of the pie is perfect. It is thick, moist, and rich, it’s almost like the best brownie you have ever had.

Recipe for Thin Mint Chocolate Pie

What I love about pie is that usually you just quickly mix the ingredients together, dump the mixture into a crust and then bake. It’s so easy. The pie filling is made with ingredients that most bakers will have at home already.

Recipe for Thin Mint Chocolate Pie - a very easy pie recipe

You can use either thin mints or grasshoppers to make the pie crust. Grasshoppers are very similar to thin mints, and are readily available at the grocery store. I love how the cookies give the pie a minty flavor. The process of making the crust is simple, you just crush cookies into crumbs using a blender or food processor. Then you add melted butter and press the crust into a pie pan. You don’t need to prebake the crust; it bakes along with the pie filling. If you don’t like thin mints, just use Oreos instead.

I love to make pie, but then I am faced with the problem of having an entire pie. When you live in a two-person household, that is too much pie! Usually I only bake sweets when I have a plan for sharing them. I baked this pie when my intern Bree was over, and I sent her home with a chunk to share with her roommate. Then I packed up slices for my friends Jenn and Bob. Charles and I got to enjoy the thin mint chocolate pie and we got to share it – definitely the best of both worlds.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 8

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 30 Thin Mints or Grasshoppers
  • 4 tablespoons of Butter melted
  • an 8 inch pie pan

For the Pie Filling

  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Butter melted
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

For the Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Optional: Garnish with Caramel

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Start by preparing the pie crust. Pour the cookies into a blender or food processor and transform the cookies into small crumbs. Then pour into a bowl and stir in the melted butter. Pour the mixture into an ungreased pie pan, and use a spoon or your fingers to spread out the crumbs and press them into shape.
  3. Next, prepare the pie filling. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs and sugar together. Then add the butter, cocoa, flour, salt, and vanilla. Whisk together and then pour into the pie crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the center of the pie sets.
  4. While the pie is baking, prepare the whipped cream. Pour the cream, sugar, and vanilla into the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on a medium speed for 3-4 minutes, until the cream forms peaks.
  5. Once the pie has finished baking, let it cool before adding the whipped cream (otherwise the cream will melt).
