Frozen Chocolate Pie or Do I Have Your Attention Now?

We all know I am not a baker.  I am however, good at desserts which do not require baking.  Is there a name for me? 

Yesterday afternoon, on a whim, I went to the store for the ingredients for Chocolate Cream Pie.  Fireman gives it a 10. 
I haven't tried it yet.  Well, I guess I tried the Batter, if we are being completely honest about this.  The batter was decadent. 
Here's the recipe.  (oh and my second Trap is well underway)

Chocolate Cream Pie

  • 1 ready made graham cracker crust
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened dark chocolate, chopped (or you can use the baking chips)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream (milk can be substituted)
  • 8 ounce container of Cool Whip
  1. Melt chocolate and cream in the microwave for about 45-60 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir until chocolate is completely melted, creating a chocolate ganache, if needed heat for an additional 10 seconds.
  2. With a mixer, cream softened cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Add chocolate ganache, reserving out about 1/4 cup for the drizzle on top of your pie, and mix again till all combined.
  3. Still using the mixer, on low speed, add in Cool Whip. Once combined, pour filling into crust.
  4. To drizzle chocolate. If chocolate has thickened, place back in microwave for 10-15 seconds to liquify. Place melted chocolate in a plastic bag and then cut a small hole in one corner of the bag. Drizzle chocolate over pie in the pattern of your choice.
  5. Refrigerate pie for at least 4 hours before serving

Do you have a favorite frozen dessert ?

Wow! Looks very chocolately!

I used to have a favorite that was very simple --

One graham cracker crust
2 containers fruit yogurt
1 container of Cool Whip

Mix the yogurt and Cool Whip. Put in the graham crust and freeze.

It was really cool and light for the summer weather. But, I don't make it anymore. We don't eat Cool Whip or any processed foods much any more.

Wow, the pie looks fabulous!

I love ice cream sandwiches, but I rarely purchase them because I have little self-control.
