CHOCOLATE PIE MAKES US HAPPY!


Sometimes chocolate is 
what makes
us happy!



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.



Here is what you will
 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!

Looks wonderful! I made it from your recipe once and must have done something wrong because it sure didn't taste like yours does!! Yummy! I think it was the icecream I used, it was a cheapo brand.
Happy Snow Day to you! xoxo

Bernideen, I have always admired your lady with the muff figurine, and those three red transferware plates are gorgeous! Chocolate pie is always a treat but I can't make it any more because Hubby has health issues if he eats too much chocolate. He's not a very good boy if there is a lot of chocolate around, I'm afraid.
We have some snow now but the rain we're getting tomorrow will rid us of some of it. Then it's going to freeze; not good! It's been a long winter this year. I hope you had a splendid Valentine's Day!

Oh, this does look delicious. I've not made a chocolate pie in ages. I think I just might need to follow your lead this weekend.

I don't know if I've ever made a chocolate pie. I would be happy if you sent that right over. :)

Your pie looks absolutely delicious, Bernideen! It sounds so easy with the ice cream as one of the ingredients. Thank you for sharing this recipe and the pretty setting with us.
P.S. I forgot to mention in your NEW LOOK post how young you look with your new hairstyle!!

My husband would love this pie. I don't usually make cream pie (mostly fruit pies) and he does get hungry for a chocolate pie. It sounds good.
