Colleen's Chocolate Cream PieHi Barb ---
Here is a link to a chocolate cream pie that I've made a few times the past two weeks. A friend made it for me for my birthday once and Charlotte, William and Buddy just LOVE it.
I do change the crust recipe to use a whole box of Nabisco chocolate wafer cookies with 1 stick of butter but leave the sugar amount the same.
I also use more whipped cream for the topping: 2 cups whipping cream with 1/2 cup powdered sugar plus a teaspoon vanilla, whipped stiff.
It is not very hard to make, but there is considerable chilling time involved, so it is defiinitely a "make ahead" dessert or make in the morning if you want it for dinner.
It is an old-fashioned dessert. But sometimes that is nice. Kind of like whoopie cake. All I know is the kids will fight each other to get the last piece!
