Easy as Chocolate Pie

Makes 8 servings


  • 12 ounces vegan semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or other nondairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, cherries, or blueberries (optional)
  • 1 vegan chocolate cookie crust (Keebler’s brand is vegan-friendly)
  • Chocolate curls or chopped nuts, for garnish


  1. In a saucepan, combine the chocolate chips, almond milk, and coconut oil over medium heat. Cook, stirring until the chocolate and coconut oil are melted. Stir in the nuts and dried fruit, if using, until well combined.
  2. Transfer the chocolate mixture to the crust and spread evenly. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours to firm up before serving. Garnish the top with chocolate curls.
