White Chocolate Peppermint Pie

Here's the Dish

While planning my friend’s bachelorette party this past weekend, I was thinking of a fun dessert to make that would be festive, delicious, and easy to make! The bride-to-be loves Christmas (hence why her wedding is in December), so I decided to go for a peppermint dessert. The pie was enjoyed by all of the ladies and requested that I make it again. I hope you all enjoy this creamy dreamy white chocolate peppermint pie as much as we did!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 3 Hours.


Whisk first 5 ingredients together in a medium bowl, until everything is well combined.


Pour mixture into chocolate pie crust.


Sprinkle crushed candy canes and white chocolate chips over the top to garnish if desired.


Refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight until chilled and set. Squirt whipped cream around the rim just before serving, (if desired) and enjoy!


1 cup Skim milk
1 (8oz) Container light cool whip
1 (1 oz) Box sugar free instant white chocolate pudding mix
1/2 tsp Peppermint extract (1 tsp for stronger peppermint taste)
1 drop Red (or pink) food coloring
1 Oreo ready-made pie crust1
OptionalToppings: 2 candy canes crushed, 2 tbs white chocolate chips, whipped cream

1 Or 2 cups chocolate cookies, finely crushed mixed with 1/4 cup light butter, & pressed into pie pan~ for home-made crust!

Oh, this looks delicious and then I was so excited to see it wasn’t ‘too expensive’ in the way of taking up calories for the day! We have a Christmas party with our small group from church and this will be the perfect treat!

Thank you so much for all of your healthy alternatives. You’re changing the way that I stock the fridge and cupboards, cook, and look at the food we eat. Thank you!!

I made this for my teachers as an end of year present and left it in the staff room. I haven’t seen any of them over the break to hear the verdict yet ;) I also made another one for tonight’s dinner since my Grandma is diabetic and it is fairly low in sugar. I subbed in sugar free cool whip instead of the Lite version. It’s gonna be tasty! Thanks

Thank you so much for all of your delicious recipes! I find myself using cooking as an excuse not to study more and more… :0 I have a silly question about this recipe though- do I make the pudding or do I just stir in the mix as is? Thank you!
