Chocolate Chip Cookie Candy Cream Pie is a mouthful to say and a belly full of scrumptious creamy chocolate chip goodness. Take all you love about your chocolate chip cookies and add a cream cheese whipped filling loaded with chocolate candies and more of your favorite cookies and even more on top!

This is one of the most delicious pie recipes and one scrumptious no-bake candy cookie pie. Seriously, when you have all the 5Cs of delicious desserts in one Patriotic Cream Pie, you satisfy the sweet tooth in everyone you serve.

This creamy gooey chocolate chip cookie pie is a great recipe for all-American holidays like the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, and Labor Day. For more Patriotic dessert recipes, you may want to try my Red, White, and Blueberry Cream Pie, or maybe my Red, White, and Blue Poke Cake.

Once you have chosen your dessert, you may want to add another patriotic recipe to the celebration like this American Flag Layered Dip followed by some Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs and a side of the best Baked Macaroni and Cheese!

A family favorite, this is one of the best easy pie recipes you’ll find. After all, it is the best of a chocolate chip pie, a cookie cake, and the filling of cream pies. My family loves a good Chips Ahoy Crust dessert recipe and this one really takes the cake- or the pie!

Ingredient Notes

  • Cookie Crust – You can make your chocolate chip cookie crust, or you can purchase a pre-made no-bake cookie crust. If you make the crust at home, you will need crunchy chocolate chip cookies (like Chips Ahoy) and butter.
  • Cream Cheese – Set the cream cheese on the counter for at least 30 minutes while you begin the recipe so it is room temperature and will mix easily.
  • Powdered Sugar – powdered sugar blends well into the filling mix without a sugary grit.
  • Vanilla Extract – Give your pie that vanilla flavor with vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste.
  • Frozen Whipped Topping – Thaw the whipped topping (Cool Whip) on the counter along with the cream cheese so they will all mix well. You can also use homemade whipped cream.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies – The cookies are what make this pie unique. Most cream pies use Oreos- not this Patriotic Pie!
  • M&Ms – Find the candies that suit the holiday or season you are baking in!
  • Sprinkles – Same as the M&Ms, use the sprinkles that are just right for your party!

Be sure to see the recipe card below for exact ingredients and full recipe instructions!

Step 1 | The Crust

This delicious recipe calls for a Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust. You can make a homemade crust with crunchy cookies or you can purchase the premade version.

I love making it myself so I can choose the brand of cookies I like best or use part of a batch of homemade cookies that got a little too crunchy!

The simple ingredients included in my recipe yield a semi-sweet chocolate chips buttery pie crust and one of the most decadent desserts!

Step 2 | Mix the Creamy Filling

With room temperature cream cheese, place the soft block in a large mixing bowl. Add in the powdered sugar and stir it with a spatula until creamy smooth. Then add in the vanilla and mix.

Next, you will fold in the thawed whipped topping (reserving about 4 ounces for the top of the pie) into the large bowl with the cream cheese filling until the mixture is creamy and just incorporated. It should be light and fluffy!

Step 3 | Fold in the Sweet

Take about 6 Chocolate Chip Cookies and break them or chop them into large pieces. Break them over a medium bowl or in a zippered bag so you keep all the crumbs! – no wasting cookies y’all!

Now gather your colors of M&Ms for the appropriate holiday. For this patriotic pie recipe, I used red, white, and blue, but you can choose any color you want!

To the cream cheese filling mixture, you will add the cookie crumbles and the M&Ms and fold gently so you do not break the candies and cookies too much.

Step 4 | Filling the Crust

Perhaps the best thing about this cookie cream pie is the layers of goodness! the first layer is the chocolate chip cookie crust. 

Get out the crust and use the spatula to spoon in the candy cream cheese filling and smooth it to the edges of the pie crust.

Once chilled and firm the next layer is the thawed whipped topping! Take the reserved whipped topping and smooth over the creamy pie filling. 

Then refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours before serving to allow the pie to firm up a bit.

Then you can top the pie with any sprinkles you see fit for the occasion! Then when serving, you can even add a scoop of vanilla ice cream – but I digress!

HINT: If you are not serving the pie that day, wait to top the filling with the whipped topping and the sprinkles until the day of. You don’t want the sprinkles to bleed their beautiful colors into the whipped cream unless you are looking for that tie-dyed look!

So festive isn’t it?

Tips

  • Use a crunchy cookie, like Chips Ahoy, not a soft bakery-style cookie for the filling. You want the cookie to hold up in the filling.
  • Cookie sizes vary from brand to brand so just coarsely chop until you get about 1 cup.
  • This will work in a 9-inch pie plate or an 8 or 9-inch round or square pan.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I make this for a large group?
