No-Bake Chocolate Pie with Strawberries

No-Bake Chocolate Pie with Strawberries

March 14th is “Pi-Day” so don’t miss out on an easy excuse to make a pie! And, with this recipe, you don’t even have to bake it so there’s no reason to miss the fun. Fresh strawberries with chocolate is a winning combination for sure.




  1. Place the strawberry halves in a single layer in the bottom of the pie crust.
  2. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, ginger, nutmeg, and salt over medium heat.
  3. Whisk in the egg yolks to create a thick paste. Gradually whisk in the half-and-half until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
  4. Add the chocolate and whisk until combined. Add the rum and vanilla extracts. Cool the mixture for 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the filling over the strawberries and up to the top of the crust. Chill the pie for 2 hours or until set.
  6. Garnish with additional strawberries, if desired.
