For so many of us, a cup of coffee is an absolute necessity when it comes to starting the day. But why not have a cup to close out the day too? Just do it in dessert form! This ridiculously easy no-bake pie might not replace your morning cup… but it’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, no matter how you take your coffee.
The star ingredient here is cold-brew coffee, but it’s mellowed with a little creamy milk and vanilla pudding into a delicious latte-like flavor. The cookie crust gives it a nice chocolate crunch, so it’s a little bit reminiscent of a mocha too!
A store-bought chocolate cookie crust and a box of instant pudding mix mean this dessert comes together in mere minutes. It does need to chill in the freezer for at least six hours, but you can easily make this the day before you need it and let it sit in the freezer overnight. It’s a subtle coffee and chocolate confection that takes almost no time to create… what’s not to love?
