Chocolate Cream Pie

Simple, Chocolate, Delicious!

Chocolate Cream Pie

Here's what you'll need:
1 Ready Made Graham Cracker Crust.
You can make your own if you prefer. They're very easy to make.
I added a recipe at the end of this one.

8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened to Room Temperature.
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 1/2 C Dark Chocolate Chips.
1/3 C Heavy Cream
1 - 8 oz. Tub of Frozen Cool Whip, thawed.

In a Microwave Safe Glass Bowl:
Heat until melted and creamy smooth, stirring often.
Reserve 1/4 C for later use. Set aside.

In a Large Mixing Bowl with a Hand Mixer:
Cream Cheese
Confectioner's Sugar
Beat slowly until well combined and creamy smooth.

Chocolate, except for the reserved 1/4 C.
Beat to incorporate well.

Cool Whip.
Gradually incorporate in Low Speed until well combined and creamy smooth.

Spoon evenly into the Crust.

Drizzle the top with the reserved Chocolate. (if it has cooled to much, reheat of a second or two in the microwave.

Spoon it into a Zip Lock Bag, cut a small hole in the corner to drizzle easily.
Create a design of your choice.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.


3/4 C Graham Cracker Crumbs
4 TBS Granulated Sugar
2 TBS Brown Sugar
4 TBS Butter, melted
Combine all ingredients in a Mixing Bowl. I use a blending fork.
You can quickly pulse it in  a food processor too.
Press the mixture into a 9" Pie Plate on the bottom and 1/2" up the sides.
Put it in the freezer while preparing the filling.

Peace in the Kitchen!
