Today I’m continuing with the theme of easy, cool treats for hot summer days. This pie is so easy and so good, you have to give it a try! Because it says “Baker’s Sweet Chocolate” on the card, Grandma may have gotten this from the box of Baker’s Chocolate or something. This is an easy one that you’ll love to have in your recipe file.
It wouldn’t be a bad idea to just keep one of these pies in your freezer for unexpected guests.
Here is the recipe as I made it:
10 Minute German Sweet Chocolate Cream Pie
You’ll need an 8″ graham cracker crust. You could buy one ready-made or find a recipe here.
1 package (4 oz.) Baker’s German Sweet Chocolate OR 4.4 oz. Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar
1/3 cup milk
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups or 1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
Heat chocolate and 2 Tablespoons of the milk in a pan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is melted (I used the microwave).
Beat sugar with cream cheese.
Add remaining milk and chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.
Fold in Cool Whip and blend until smooth.
Spoon into crust.
Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
This is such an easy crust recipe. It’s my go-to every time.
The filling really does whip together in minutes.
It’s so pretty!
I had the pie in the freezer for exactly 4 hours. I would leave it in a bit longer.
Let it sit 5 minutes or so to thaw just a bit before cutting. Grandma suggested adding almonds to the pie, so I added some toasted almonds to the top along with some chocolate drizzle and whipped cream.
So good, so creamy, so impressive for your guests!
This one is a must try!
Remember – there is no try, only do!
