After a couple of days of extreme weather that resulted in all the local schools closing down, we were back in business today. Back to the routine of morning alarm clocks, school lunches, and meetings.
Routine is good when it means rambunctious kids getting structure back into their day. Routines are great.
Except when it comes to dessert. There’s nothing routine about this chocolate mocha cream pie.
This is no ordinary, routine pie. Not at all. This chocolate mocha cream pie is extraordinary. I served it at a recent party, and was lucky to have a sliver left so I could at least taste how yummy it was!
For all chocolate addicts and java fans, this pie is what dreams are made of. If chocolate makes you sing and coffee makes you dance, then get ready to sing loud and dance big. Just look at the deliciousness…
This chocolate mocha cream pie is silky, smooth, rich, and chocolatey.
It’s laced with the delightful aroma of coffee (thus, the mocha.)
Topped with a fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth Kahlua whipped cream, which I always stabilize with gelatin so that there are no worries about runny/melty whipped cream.
All this lusciousness sits on top of a buttery Oreo crumb crust.
Is that not a chocolate & coffee lover’s dream or what?!

This is my all-time, most fabulous, most loved and requested Apple Pie with Flaky Butter Crust:
If you’re looking for more chocolate to love, one bite of this Flourless Chocolate Cake (GF) and you’ll be in dream land:
And more chocolate. This is heavenly, luscious, and chewy. It’s simply the BEST brownie ever, and it single-handedly converted me into a no-box brownie baker.
