This pie is calling all coffee and chocolate lovers!

Now that you have all the ingredients assembled, it’s time to put together this delicious chocolate latte pie. Follow these steps carefully to ensure your pie comes out perfectly.

Prepare the Pie Crust

Start off by preparing the pie crust. If you’re short on time, a store-bought crust will work just as well. However, if you want to make your own crust from scratch, here’s a recipe to try:


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 to 6 tbsp ice water


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and sugar.
  2. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Gradually add ice water (one tablespoon at a time) while mixing with a fork until dough clings together.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap.
  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour before rolling it out.

Once the dough is ready, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and fit it into a 9-inch (23 cm) pie dish. Trim away any excess dough and prick the bottom of the crust with a fork.

Bake the crust for about 10 minutes, or until it’s lightly golden brown. Set aside and let cool completely.

Make the Chocolate Fudge Layer

Next up is making the chocolate fudge layer. Here’s what you’ll need:


  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until it’s smooth.
  2. Add in the powdered sugar, chocolate syrup, and instant coffee, then beat until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  4. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture, then pour the mixture into the cooled pie crust.

Make the Mocha Cream Layer

Now it’s time to make the mocha cream layer. Here’s what you’ll need:


  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together espresso powder and whole milk until smooth.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat

Substitutions and Variations

 Warning: this pie may cause instant happiness and addiction.
Warning: this pie may cause instant happiness and addiction.

Are you looking for ways to add some excitement to your Chocolate Latte Pie recipe? Fear not, my caffeine-addled friends! Here are some variations and substitutions to consider when making this delightfully simple summer dessert.

Firstly, if you don’t want to use a pre-made pie crust, try making your own! You can experiment with different types of crusts:

– Chocolate pie crust: for an extra chocolate-y twist, consider using a chocolate pie crust instead of a regular one. Simply mix in 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to the dry ingredients before adding the wet ones.

– Graham cracker crust: if you want something a bit lighter and crumblier, swap the regular crust for a graham cracker one. Combine 2 cups of crushed graham crackers with 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup granulated sugar.

– Pumpkin spice latte crust: Feeling festive? Use a pumpkin spice latte-flavored coffee instead of instant coffee granules, and use gingersnap cookies in place of the pie crust. This will give your pie a delicious fall-inspired twist.

Another way to shake things up is by trying different types of lattes:

– Mocha latte: swap out the regular latte for a mocha latte by simply adding 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup or fudge topping to your coffee mixture.

– Cafe latte: go classic by sticking to a cafe latte instead of the mocha version. You can also sprinkle some cinnamon on top for some extra flavor.

Finally, try adding some toppings or garnishes to elevate the taste and presentation:

– Toasted pecans: in less than 10 minutes, roast pecans on a baking sheet at 350°F (175°C) until fragrant. Sprinkle them over the whipped cream topping or add them in between layers.

– Whipped cream: mix 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened; 1 cup of powdered sugar; and 2 cups of whipping cream in a bowl. Once you make soft peaks, add 2 tbsp of your favorite instant coffee granules and continue to whip until they mix. Use the resulting latte cream instead of basic whipped cream.

– Espresso powder: instead of instant coffee granules, use espresso powder for a richer taste. Add 1/4 cup to the pie ingredients and stir well.

There you have it! These substitutions and variations will help you prepare a unique Chocolate Latte Pie that will

Picture this: you’ve made a scrumptious latte pie and have some leftovers. What do you do? Don’t fret, because I’ve got just the tips for making this wondrous creation last longer. In fact, with these ideas, you can make it ahead of time, store it, and even reheat it to retain its delightful flavor.

Firstly, if you make the latte pie well ahead of time, it may take a bit of effort to preserve its texture and taste. Fortunately, there are several ways to keep it fresh. To begin with, wrap your pie in foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate it for no more than 2 days. After that amount of time, the pie may lose its unique taste and consistency.

If you’re looking to store the pie for more extended periods, freezing is the best option. Allow the pie to cool completely before placing it in an airtight container or wrapping it tightly with foil. You can leave it in the freezer for up to three months; any longer than that might result in loss of flavor and texture.

After defrosting your pie, reheating immediately is crucial to maintain its delicious taste. To do so, use low heat (no more than 325°F) for around ten minutes or so until your latte pie becomes warm again.

A notable tip here is that if you’re short on time or uninterested in heating up the whole pie at once, slice individual servings before freezing them so that they can be easily reheated later on.

In conclusion, this delightful mocha latte cream pie will benefit from being chilled or frozen properly. Remember these tips for saving leftovers without letting their taste go stale, and always reheat gently when ready to consume again! This way, you’ll be able to enjoy delightfully simple summer dessert whenever you please while relishing every bite!

Tips for Perfect Results

Close your eyes and savor every sip of coffee-infused deliciousness.

As a barista and a food enthusiast, I have learned a few tricks to make sure my chocolate latte pie comes out perfectly every time. Here are some tips you can follow to achieve that same delicious dessert:

Firstly, make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature before starting the recipe. This ensures that the cream cheese is soft enough to blend easily with the other ingredients, and the eggs mix well without causing lumps in the batter.

When you whip the cream for the topping and filling, take care not to over-mix it. Stop whisking when soft peaks form to ensure that it stays fluffy and smooth. Over-mixed whipped cream can result in a dense and heavy texture, which can ruin the delicate taste of this dessert.

Another helpful tip is to use a water bath while baking the pie. This means placing the pie dish in a larger dish filled with hot water before baking. It helps to distribute heat evenly and avoid cracks on the surface of your latte pie.

You can also try spicing up your recipe by adding some cinnamon powder or instant coffee granules to your filling mixture. This gives your latte pie a unique flavor profile that will make it stand out from other cream pies.

Finally, let your latte pie cool completely before slicing it. This allows for more firmness in the filling, letting it come out clean when sliced into pieces. Topping each slice with some toasted pecans adds crunchiness and enhances its flavor profile.

These tips will surely help you create a delightfully simple and indulgent dessert–perfect for serving during warm summer afternoons or any special occasion.
