4 Ingredient Peppermint Ganache Pie

This 4 Ingredient Peppermint Ganache Pie is as simple and easy as it gets. Super rich chocolate ganache filling inside of a chocolatey Oreo cookie crust. It’s all topped off with crushed peppermint for a holiday flare!

Only 4 ingredients and no bake this recipe is one of my favorite desserts to whip up for the holidays. Here is what you’ll need:

Ingredients

  • Oreo Crust: I use the pre made crust to save on time however you can make your own at home by simply combining 2 cups of Oreos with 4 tablespoons butter in a food processor until combined. The mixture should feel similar to wet sand.
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips: Are mixed with heavy cream to make the ganache. For an even richer pie you can substitute half semi sweet and half dark chocolate chips. Just make sure to use good quality chocolate.
  • Heavy Cream: Is mixed with the chocolate chips to make the silky chocolate ganache!
  • Candy Canes: For topping the peppermint ganache pie. I love how the crushed up candy canes look on top!

I kept this dessert super easy and used a pre-made Oreo pie crust. That means no baking or cooling required.

All in all this dessert takes a whopping 5 minutes to make. It does require some chilling time in the fridge. At least 2 hours to be exact. This is a perfect dessert to make ahead of time!

How to make 4 Ingredient Peppermint Ganache Pie

Add chocolate chips and heavy cream to a microwave safe bowl. Cook until the chocolate is melted. (I do 30 second intervals and scrap the sides of the bowl and stir each time). Once melted pour into then pre-made cookie crust. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set. Slice and serve with crushed peppermint and melted chocolate for garnish, if desired.
