This Pistachio Cream Frankenstein Pie is the perfect last-minute Halloween treat! It’s ready in minutes, super cute, and tastes amazing!
I seriously love this pie. It’s so quick and easy to make, completely versatile, and soooo delicious!
I used pistachio instant pudding to give me that adorable Frankenstein green, but you could use vanilla pudding with a few drops of green food coloring if pistachio isn’t your thing.
Talk about convenience! This pie requires just 4 simple ingredients (including bone healthy milk!) for the base, and then maybe a small handful of candies for the decorations… but you probably already have your Halloween candy purchased and ready to go, don’t you?!
I think I went overboard this year. Ok, that’s an understatement. I bought a bunch of candy this year. I think it’s because last year when my kids went trick-or-treating they came back with like 50 small bags of chips, and not very much candy. Apparently chip giving is very popular in our small town. I’m going to off-set that by handing out giant handfuls of candy to each child who rings my doorbell.
It’s all about balance, right? 😉
Speaking of candy… you’ll need some red twizzlers for the cut above Frankenstein’s eye, black licorice for his mouth, chocolate squares for his hair, two Oreos and two junior mints for his eyes, and then two mini reese’s for the bolts in his neck.
I thought this guy was super cute. My husband, on the other hand, had some major concerns… He kept saying that it’s not fair that someone gets a slice of pie with all those chocolate pieces, or how someone will get an Oreo eye ball and he will get none.
I think someone was deprived of treats as a child…
You don’t have to worry though, because the pistachio cream pie by itself is extremely tasty!
It’s light and fluffy and full of that delicious pistachio pudding flavor!
Ahh… who am I kidding, that Oreo eyeball really takes it over the top!

Pistachio Cream Frankenstein Pie
- 1 graham cracker pie crust, ready made
- 1 pistachio instant pudding mix, small package
- 1 cup milk
- 8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
For the Frankenstein Face:
- 2 Oreos
- 2 Junior Mints
- 2 Mini Reese's Cups
- 1 black licorice, cut to 2 inches long
- 1 Hershey's chocolate bar
- 1 Twizzlers, red, cut to 1 inch long
- To prepare the pie simply place the pudding mix and cold milk in a large bowl. Whisk for at least 1 minute, then fold in the cool whip. Pour the mousse into the prepared graham cracker crust and let sit for 5 minutes in the fridge.
- Top with the candies to make a Frankenstein face. Carefully open up the Oreos and lay them cream side up on the pie, where his eyeballs should go. Top with the junior mints.
- Place the Hershey's chocolate squares above the eyeballs for his hair, layering them works great.
- Use the licorice for his mouth, and the twizzlers for a cut above the eye. Use the mini Reese's cups for bolts just below his mouth. Enjoy!

Can I use real whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?
This is so cute! My daughter would love this!

This is such a cute pie! And, I love pistachio pudding, so I know it tastes good too!
Thanks Kristi! I just made another one of these pies because, daggumit, it’s so tasty!
I love the face! Such a neat idea. I might do the frankenstien face on ice cream cone pie though. My mom used to make it all summer. If I use pistachio ice cream on top then I’ll be set. I’m in Southern California so it’s still warm enough to warrant ice cream.
I have no qualms with an ice cream pie… that sounds AMAZING!! Pistachio ice cream is one of my favorites! 🙂

So stinking adorable! And I LOVE pistachio pudding. I haven’t had it in years and now I’m craving it hardcore! This is perfect for Halloween!
Thanks Liz! It’s so good!
How cute is that? I have not seen pistachio pudding in the stores for quite a few years. Anyone know which chains carry it? I suppose there is always on-line (better order soon).
I’m pretty sure you can find it at Walmart, they always seem to carry just about everything. Am I right?! You could always try it with different flavors of instant pudding, but the pistachio is really tasty!
