One of my favorite desserts is Chocolate Cream Pie. I always order it when I visit one of my favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurants on the town square in my hometown. A few months back, I surprised my family by trying to copycat the restaurant’s very delicious Chocolate Cream Pie. I am all about quick and simple recipes and this one is a perfect match for me! This is a great everyday treat! I’m so excited to share my fabulous Chocolate Cream Pie recipe with you today. I know you’ll love it!
You will need just a few ingredients: a package of cream cheese, a bit of sugar, some milk, COOL WHIP, a graham cracker crust, a package of instant chocolate mix and some miniature chocolate chips. Yep, that’s it!
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk until it’s smooth. Fold in 1 cup of COOL WHIP and spread evenly into crust.
Next, mix the pudding mix with the rest of the milk for 2 minutes and then let it sit for 2 minutes. Layer over the cream cheese mixture.
