  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened (reduced-fat is fine)
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate broken into pieces
  • 8 oz. container Cool Whip or whipped topping thawed, divided
  • 9 oz. prepared chocolate cookie crust 9 oz. is preferred, but you can cram this in a 6 oz. crust if that's the only size you can find!
  • 2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. clove


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat chocolate for 30 seconds, stir, and then continue heating at 15 second intervals until melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat, or the chocolate will scorch.
  • Allow chocolate to cool 3-4 minutes.
  • Slowly, in dollops, add the chocolate to the mixing bowl, beating until combined and smooth.
  • Fold in 1/2 tub of Cool Whip or whipped topping (eyeball it). Reserve remaining for garnish.
  • Spread the chocolate mixture into the bottom of the pie crust, taking care not to "lift" any portions of the crust as you spread.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together vanilla pudding mixes, milk, pumpkin, and spices until smooth.
  • Carefully spread the pumpkin mixture over the chocolate layer.
  • Using a star tip, pipe the remaining Cool Whip around the edges. Garnish with chocolate chips, chocolate curls, and/or chocolate sauce, if desired.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until firm. Cut and serve.
