Black forest cheesecake pie is no bake and can be made in just minutes! Ready-to-use chocolate cookie crust with two layers of smooth cream pie filling. Top with a spoonful of canned cherry pie filling and you have a seriously amazingly delicious dessert loaded with chocolate, cherry, and cheesecake flavors.

This pie. There really are no words for it. It is one of those things that you make and ask yourself “did I really just make this pie because it is so dang good!” I think it’s even more surprising because this pie can be made in just minutes. Minutes people!

Sometimes I like spending hours in the kitchen making everything from scratch and making gourmet things. But then other times ( most of the time!) I like quick, easy, simple, and crazy delicious recipes that I know I can count on. This black forest cheesecake pie is one of those.

Black forest is traditionally a chocolate and cherry combination. And trust me when I say that this pie is loaded with chocolate and cherry flavor. You use a pre-made chocolate crust. You can use either a chocolate graham cracker crust or you can use an Oreo crust. I love the Oreo crust because it’s Oreo…. what’s not to love?!

The cream filling is simply cream cheese, sugar, sour cream (I know, weird, just trust me 🙂 ), vanilla extract, and cool whip. Pour half of that into the crust and then add cocoa powder and additional sweetener in with the remaining. Spread that on top of the vanilla cream. Put it in the fridge overnight, or for several hours, so it can set. Top each slice with a spoonful of cherry pie filling.

You end up with perfect layers of chocolate crust, vanilla cheesecake, and then chocolate cheesecake. Topped with some cherries!

This my friends is dessert perfection. I promise you will love this one! Thanks for visiting 🙂



  • 1 ready-to-use chocolate crumb crust (Oreo or chocolate graham cracker)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 carton (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling


  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth and combined.
  • Add in sour cream and vanilla extract. Beat together until combined.
  • Fold in Cool Whip with a spatula.
  • Spread half of the mixture into the pie crust.
  • Add cocoa powder and powdered sugar to the remaining cream filling and beat together until combined.
  • Spread evenly over the cream cheese layer.
  • Cover and let refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight works really good too.
  • Cut into slices and serve each slice with some cherry pie filling.


You want to make sure your cream cheese is really soft so you avoid lumps. I like to put mine in a bowl and microwave it for about 30-45 seconds to make sure it’s nice and soft.
