If you have pie leftovers that you need to store for the next day you can loosely cover your pie with plastic wrap or transfer it to a large enough air-tight container and store it in the fridge.
I always prefer storing it without the whipped cream on top, but it’s okay if you can’t do that since these are leftovers.
Can I make this pie ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this one day ahead of time.
If you want to make your no-bake chocolate pie in advance you can prepare it as per the direction of the recipe, without adding the whipped cream topping, cover with plastic wrap, and while in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
Top it with the freshly made whipped cream once you’re ready to serve it.
