No Bake Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pie!

While going through my growing stack of cooking magazine I found this recipe. I love this recipe because it is fast, easy and no heating up the kitchen. This pie turns out beautiful and tastes great. I don’t think anyone would ever know that you spent lest than 15 minutes making this. It would be super cute to serve on or around Valentines Day.

No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Cream Pie

Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit.


  • 7 oz Chocolate Wafer Cookies
  • ½ C Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 6 Tbls Butter
  • ¼ C Sugar
  • 14 oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • ¼ C Crème Fraiche
  • ¼ C Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 ½ (2 6oz) Fresh Raspberries


  • Place cookies in processor and grind into fine crumbs.
  • Melt, in microwave, chocolate chips and butter.
  • Add butter chocolate melt to cookie crumbs and blend.
  • Press (not to firm) the cookie mix into the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan.
  • Whisk milk, crème fraiche, lemon juice and lemon peel in mixer.
  • Add in ½ the raspberries and mix until slightly pink and raspberries begin to fall apart.
  • Transfer filling to crust.
  • Chill until set, about 2 hours.

Fun Fact:

The lemon juice reacts with the other ingredients causing the pie to thicken.

when it comes to pie, the crust is usually the most important part. this crust pleases me GREATLY, and bonus--the filling is terrific too!

I'm not usually a fan of cold-set pies... but I've got to admit, this one is seriously tempting. Between the dark chocolate (swoon) and the raspberry... well, let's just say that the DROOL isn't holding back!

Sorry for leaving you with not one, but TWO, cliff-hangers on the blog... I hate them too, but it was just so LONG! :)

Chocolate.... raspberry ... I'm in. Luscious, summery and sweet. Grand recipe. I want to thank you for your generosity and the tasty LEGENDS OF TEXAs BARBECUE. I am trying to read it but my husband keeps snatching it! I thanked you on my blog and left you a small "appreciation."

Great summer recipe, anything that's sweet and doesn't heat up the kitchen is a winner in my book. Pretty pink color too :)!

Every time, I stop by here, that pie calls me and begs to be eaten. The problem is that I have to make it first.
