White Chocolate Peppermint Pie

Here's the Dish

While planning my friends bachelorette party this past weekend, I was thinking of a fun dessert to make that would be festive, delicious, and easy to make! I knew one thing for sure~ my bride-to-be friend loves Christmas (hence why her wedding is in December), so I decided to go for a peppermint dessert~considering that all things peppermint represent Christmas! Next,I began to contemplate which flavor goes well with peppermint~which is simple~white chocolate of course! Next thing you know, I was in the kitchen preparing a quick and easy peppermint dessert that was fit for the occasion…(after all I was using pink food coloring!) :)

During the party I brought out the pie, and to my surprise, the bachelorette happens to be obsessed with peppermint! It was totally God! Needless to say, all the girls were paying compliments to me on how much they loved the pie, and I just had to laugh when I thought about how easy it was to make!

The pie must have truly been adored by all, because I’ve been asked for the recipe many times since Saturday! (Which is why I am posting 2 peppermint treats in a row on my site!) I hope you all enjoy this creamy dreamy white chocolate peppermint pie as much as we did this past weekend!


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!
