10 minute german sweet chocolate cream pie
This is the lightest, smoothest, yummiest pie. It's super easy so there's no excuses not to try this one!
Daughter #3 helped me make this pie. I let her lick the chocolate spoon then the spoon with whipped cream followed by the spoon with the chocolate and whipped cream combination. I said, "It's fun to cook, isn't it?" She replied, "It's fun to have whipped cream in your mouth!" You'll agree.
10 minute german sweet chocolate cream pie (my friend Erin K. who is probably packing this very minute)
1 package (4 ounces) baker's german sweet chocolate
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar, optional
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups or 1 (8 ounce) container cool whip
1 baked 8-inch graham cracker crumb crust, cooled
Heat chocolate and 2 tablespoons milk in the saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is melted. Beat sugar into cream cheese, add remaining milk and chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Fold chocolate mixture into whipped topping, blending until smooth. Spoon into crust. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired. Store any leftover pie in freezer.
What I have to say- I only had 2 ounces of German sweet chocolate so I used a combination of German sweet chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. It worked!
