I finally have a Pumpkin Pinterest Board!

What does chocolate + pumpkin equal?



One incredibly-delicious dessert, that’s what.

No-Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

Print This Recipe 5/5
No-Bake Chocolate Pumpkin Pie


  • 15 oz pureed pumpkin (or 1 can)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp cocoa powder
  • level 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • sweetener of choice, to taste


Melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave), then throw everything into a food processor and blend until it is super-smooth. Pour into a pie crust and fridge until chilled. This pie gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits. Perhaps you could try baking this, too. If anyone does, I’d love to hear how it works. I was too lazy (read: too greedy and hungry) to take the time to bake mine, so I was happy it worked as a no-bake pie!

Highly recommended: top with *Homemade Cool Whip*

What’s on your Thanksgiving menu?

I might make apple pie, or my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars.

Or I might just make both. Then I won’t feel bad if all the addictive oatmeal-raisin bars happen to disappear before they get to the Thanksgiving table. I can’t resist those darn bars! (I might also make pecan pie… I really don’t know yet!)

    Love it! I’m definitely going to try this. Maybe a mini version.

    Our thanksgiving is just 2 of us, and we are moving, so probably nothing crazy on our menu 🙂

  2. Faith @ For the Health of It says

    Gah, what gorgeous photography!! I’m so excited for anything pumpkin…even though I have no idea what we are eating for T-giving…it’s quite likely we’ll get takeout from a Chinese place 🙁

  3. Dalai Lina says

    I am honestly scared to try the pumpkin/chocolate combo you have done a few times. Do you taste both of the flavors or does one stick out?

  4. Maya says

    Katie I’m like you and I like the pie better than the crust. I bet this would be great (and super cute) in mini ramekins!

  5. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    I LOVED your original chocolate pie, and I bet I’d love this too! I can’t wait to make it!!

    And your photography is SO amazing! Beautiful photos 🙂

  6. Moni'sMeals says

    How can I not make this basically right now! Easy, fast, healthy, and of course I am sure it will hit the spot.

    Great One Katie!

  7. Lindsay @ biking before bed says

    This would be perfect for Thanksgiving since the oven will be in high demand! I am going to try and make a pumpkin cheesecake this year instead of the traditional pumpkin pie.

  8. Kristen-vanillabeanvegan says

    Looks so yummy!! I will have to try this over Thanksgiving since my oven will be full of other food, Thanks so much for the recpie, Happy Thanksgiving!!

  9. Selina says

    I love no bake pies! And chocolate + pumpkin = Heaven!

    My part in the Thanksgiving feast(s) are: Crescent Rolls, Beans & Dumpling Soup, Orange Rolls, Cranberry Crisp, Sweet Potato Bourbon Pie & Pumpkin Oatmeal, Cranberry & Chocolate Chip Cookies! It sounds like a lot of sweets but I swear we’re eating real food like stuffing, green beans & mashed potatoes. I am just not the one making them! 🙂

    I made this and OOMMGGGG. It’s soo good. I used a little less chocolate chips and 3 packets of stevia. yum yum yum. didn’t bother with the pie crust-I just put it in a baking dish and stuck it in the fridge.

    bad news: the trader joes in NYC is out of pumpkin until next year!
