Chocolate Cream Pie

April 3, 2012 by 35 Comments

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.

Put the Chocolate Cream Pie in your refrigerator and let it chill until set.  Before serving, garnish your  pie with the rest of the COOL WHIP and some mini chocolate chips.  Enjoy!
