Sometimes chocolate is
I have shared this pie before here
because I make it every once
and a while. It is a bit of a
knock off to the old Bishops
Cafeteria Chocolate Pie.
We are suddenly getting
some snow today so it is a nice
day for life in the kitchen.
need to make this pie.
A store bought or easily made
graham cracker crust.
To make your own I take 9 rectangle
pieces - which is one pkg of
cinnamon graham crackers and
smash them into crumbs. I heat
1/2 stick of butter and mix all
together and mash into the
bottom of a buttered large pie plate.
Bake at 375 degrees for 5-8 minutes
till it starts to turn brown! Cool
I put the rush on cooling mine today by
putting it out in the cold garage while
I prepared the filling!
For the pie filling: You will need
1 quart good quality vanilla
ice cream, 2 small pkg of jello
instant pudding, 2 square of
unsweetened chocolate and
1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping
cream. I put the ice cream in
my mixing bowl and let it melt.
Then beat the ice cream and heavy
whipping cream and add the pudding
mixes. Then I melt the chocolate and
add it mixing well. Pour into the
cooled pie shell and refrigerate.
For a nice decorated edging around
the pie I beat together 1 cup of heavy
whipping cream and 1/4 cup of
confectioners sugar. You can spoon
this into a pastry bag and decorate
with the tube of your choice on the tip!
Enjoy and stay warm!
