Chocolate Cream Pie

We had company over for dinner one weekend last month, and that always calls for a special dessert.  Chocolate seems to  be universally loved so I filled a graham cracker crust with a no-bake filling  of cream cheese, powdered sugar, semi-sweet chocolate and cream. Feel free to mix in 8 ounces of Cool Whip or my preferred substitute, which is  just more cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream. Serve to your favorite chocoholics and brace yourself for rave reviews!

  1. Have I mentioned that you make the BEST desserts? This one is no exception, Liz. Well done!

  2. No doubt it was a huge hit! Very pretty too:@)

  3. What a lovely pie and your chocolate curls are perfect! This would be a big hit at our house too. Great summer dessert!

  4. Your pie looks beautiful!!! Chocolate pie always reminds me of my Dad – his favourite. I must try this delicious sounding recipe. I also think it’s high time for checking out the Pampered Chef products again. Thanks for the way you share all your resources!

  5. More like Chocolate Dream Pie! Your pie looks so luxurious and I can’t say enough about this perfect curls, outstanding! I have a couple of pampered chef tools but by far, my favourite is the squeegee measuring cup (it’s a measuring cup tube with another plastic bit built in to help you push the food out, without leaving a bit in the cup, perfect for butter, PB etc).

  6. You make the simplest pies look so beautiful Liz! Chocolate and graham cracker is a wonderful combination!

  7. Chocolate cream is easily my favorite pie and now I’m craving a huge slice. This looks amazing!

  13. Such a great pie-one I know I would love! A classic at its best!

  14. Chocoholic here so this pie looks amazing and love the no-bake filling with the summer coming on (finally). Really like those chocolate curls to!

  15. It’s unbelievable so few ingredients and steps created this decedent dessert!

  23. This pie looks amazing. The best chocolate cream pie I have ever tasted was in Adrian, Texas, but I doubt I’ll be going back there, so I’ll have to see if I can replicate it with this recipe.

  24. Bet the cream cheese adds a very nice contrast to the chocolate…Although I’m a bit partial to Cool Whip. Of course, I’d be happy with either if my pie looked as fantabulous as yours =)
