Make the crust.


In a food processor, add the Oreo cookies. Pulse on high until they turn into fine crumbs. Then pour in the melted butter and pulse a few more times until the butter is well incorporated into the cookie crumbs.



Now press the crumbs onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Then preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Make the chocolate center.


Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add in the granulated sugar, cornstarch, Dutch-processed cocoa, and salt. Give it a quick whisk and then pour in the whole milk and egg yolks. Whisk until the mixture begins to thicken. This may take a few minutes.

Add the chocolate chips.


Once it’s thickened, whisk for another minute off the heat. Then add in the semisweet chocolate chips, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk thoroughly to combine everything together.



Then pour the chocolate custard into the baked crust. Smooth it out and place a round-cut piece of parchment paper on top of the cream pie. Chill for about 12 hours, or overnight.

Make the cream.


Now, make the whipped cream topping by beating the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl at high speed. Once it’s all whipped up, evenly spread it on top of the chocolate cream pie and enjoy!
