Chocolate Crumb Pie Crust Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a Chocolate Crumb Pie Crust. This pie crust is made of finely crushed Oreo cookies (minus the filling), sugar, and butter. It is baked in an oven and then cooled before filling.


1 ½ cups finely crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together 1 ½ cup chocolate cookie crumbs and 3 tablespoons sugar. Add 6 tablespoons melted butter, and stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. (You may use a deep dish pie plate if you have a large amount of pie filling.) Using the back of a spoon or a cup, press the crumb mixture evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. The pie crust may now be filled and baked, or baked as is to hold a prepared filling. When baked as is, bake at 350 degrees (F) 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and fill with pie filling, cooling first, if necessary. This pie crust is great for cream pies. Peanut Butter Pie is great in this crust! This crust can be used for almost any flavor of cream pie. I will be uploading an interesting filling for this Chocolate Crumb Pie Crust soon. I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty 

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her “Be My Valentine!” Chocolate Cheesecake. This is a cake for chocolate lovers, and it is also very romantic.


1 1/3 cups dark chocolate wafer crumbs (I used Oreos, with centers removed, and crushed them finely.)
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons rum or rum flavoring (optional—you may replace with 2 teaspoons milk.)
8-oz. carton sour cream
(2) 8-oz. packages cream cheese, cubed and softened
2 tablespoons butter, melted
whipped cream or Cool Whip
diced maraschino cherries

In a medium-sized bowl, combine 1 1/3 cups chocolate wafer crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, ¼ cup softened butter, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Use a fork or pastry blender to mix until crumbly. Firmly press into bottom of a 10-inch springform pan; set aside. Melt 1 ½ cups chocolate chips over hot water in the top of a double boiler; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 eggs, ½ cup sugar, 2 teaspoons rum, and an 8-oz. carton sour cream. Use an electric mixer to blend until smooth. Add (2) 8-oz. packages cubed and softened cream cheese and blend until smooth. Continue blending and gradually add 1 ½ cups melted chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Blend well. Pour cheesecake batter over chocolate crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes, or until cheesecake is set in center. Cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Chill at least 6 hours. Remove sides of springform pan and place on serving plate. Before serving, garnish with whipped cream or whipped topping, along with diced maraschino cherries. (I formed Cool Whip into a heart-shape.) Slice into pie-shaped pieces to serve. Enjoy! Happy Valentine’s Day from Betty & Rick!
