Chocolate Pumpkin Pie with Vanilla Cream

A delicious alternative to traditional pumpkin pie. Easy to whip together and the second pie freezes well to have on hand whenever company arrives!

I’m so excited to welcome you to our Fall Festival, friends! This week 29 bloggers and myself are welcoming you into our home and sharing vignettes, front porches, recipes, tablescapes and mantles with you! All decked out for fall! There’s tons of inspiration and I’m so happy to be part of so many talented and sweet ladies! Make sure you check out the entire line up at the end of this post!

Today, our theme is fall recipes and I’m so happy to be sharing with along with With Two Spoons , Honey n Hydrangea, Brooklyn Farm GirlCrisp Collective and Calli Girl In A Southern World. If you’re looking to add some new recipes to your fall menu or even planning your Thanksgiving dinner already, hopefully you’ll find a few to try!

Pumpkin pie is an absolute favorite in our home! My mom’s recipe is our favorite and you might be a little shocked at how many she makes each Thanksgiving! We just celebrated our daughter’s birthday and to my absolute delight she chose my husband’s famous Coconut Cream Pie and a Pumpkin Pie as her “cake”. There were lots of smiles around the table when we lit them with candles.

And this twist to Pumpkin Pie has become another favorite in our home. Our kids love it as much as we do and if you want to avoid making a crust like I do, try this chocolate crumb crust! So quick and easy!
