The copycat recipe starts off with a base of an Oreo cookie crust. Then there is a decadent layer of cream, which is made by combining cream cheese, cool whip, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Next comes a layer of amazing chocolate goodness. This is made by mixing, eggs, sugar, cream, salt, vanilla, and dark chocolate chips.

This type of pie is commonly stored in the freezer and often served as it just begins to thaw.
There are four main parts to this pie, all of which make it amazing to enjoy! Let’s take a closer look.
Cookie Crust. The cookie crust provides the perfect mold to contain your pie. Once the cookies are crushed and combined with a little bit of butter, you can mold them against the edge of your pie plate to make the perfect crust. Once your entire pie has been frozen, the cookies will set up and become solid once more. Then, when your slices of pie are cut, this cookie crust holds the pieces perfectly and provides a nice balance of chocolate cookies amongst each bite of cream filling.
Cream Layer. Next to the cookie crust is your cream layer. This is made from whipping together cool whip, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and a bit of vanilla extract. The creamy goodness in the layer is light and airy. It tastes wonderful by itself, but once it is sandwiched between a chocolate cookie crust and a chocolate cream, the result is mouthwatering.
Chocolate Layer. To make this delightful chocolate layer, which tops the delicious and fluffy cream layer, you will need to gather eggs, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla, heavy cream, and dark chocolate chips. Once created, this chocolate layer provides rich and downright amazing chocolate later that will be perfect for any chocolate lover.
Whipped Cream. Now that you have a cookie crust, followed by a light and creamy layer, topped with an amazingly rich chocolate layer, all that is left is your whipped cream. This is a classic whipped cream, or if you want the easy way out, a can of ready-made whipped cream will also work. To make homemade whipped cream, simply add heavy cream, that has been whipped until stiff peaks form. Then add in powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Decorate the edge of your pie with this tasty, whipped cream, or if you prefer you can cover the entire top of the pie. If desired, drizzle with chocolate syrup and garnish with mini chocolate chips.
The amazing combination of your cookie crust, followed by a light fluffy cream layer, then a rich chocolate creamy layer, topped with homemade whipped cream, makes for a delicious pie. It is so good; you are going to want to savor every bite. The best thing about the combination of layers is that not one overpowers the other.

Step 1: Preheat Oven

Step 2: Create Your Cookie Crust
Now it is time to create your cookie crust. If you have a food processor, use the pulse function to crush your cookies. If you do not, then you can use a sealable plastic bag, and a rolling pin to crush your cookies. Crush your cookies until they are very fine. Add in your butter and mix to combine.
Step 3: Press The Crust
In a pie plate, spray it with cooking spray so that it will not stick. Pour your crushed cookies into your pie plate and press them against the edges. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow your crust to fully cool. Note: You may need to carefully press some of the cookie crumbs back into place if they moved during the baking process. Try to do this while they are still warm and moldable. Be careful not to get burnt.
Step 4: Cream Filling
In a mixing bowl, whip your cream cheese until it has become creamy. Add in your powdered sugar and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Finally, add in your cool whip and whisk to combine. Pour into your cooled pie crust.
Step 5: Heat The Cream For Your Chocolate Filling
In a medium-sized saucepan, add 1 ½ cup cream, over low heat and allow it to warm up. Do not let it boil.
Step 6: Temper The Eggs
In a mixing bowl, add your egg yolks and sugar. Whisk on high until your eggs turn light yellow and frothy. Continue whisking on medium speed as you pour in your warmed cream. Place mixture back into your saucepan and heat stirring constantly until your mixture reaches 165°F. Remove from heat.
Step 7: Add Chocolate To Tempered Eggs
Once your egg mixture has reached 165°F and has been removed from the heat, it is time to add in your salt, vanilla, and chocolate chips. Stir to combine until your chocolate is melted.
Step 8: Whip The Cream For Chocolate
In a clean mixing bowl, whisk your heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into your chocolate egg mixture, until the cream is combined. Allow for the chocolate filling to cool to room temperature. Pour on top of cream filling in your pie crust.
Step 9: Whipping Cream
Now it is time to create your whipping cream to top off your pie. Simply whisk your cream in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Then mix in your powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir to combine. Top your pie with your freshly homemade whipped cream.
Step 10: Topping
If desired, top your pie with a chocolate drizzle and sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top to decorate. Allow for your pie to chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.
