Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie

It's always nice to have choices. While I wouldn't turn down pumpkin or apple pie for Thanksgiving, it's gratifying to know that I can have a slice of CHOCOLATE pie too.

This one is sooooo easy. That's my objective here. To make it simple, delicious, quick and easy for you. NO STRESS!!

Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie

4 ounces Mexican Chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup milk
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons sugar
1 carton (8 ounces) whipped topping, like Cool Whip
1 graham cracker pie crust
Garnish options: whipped cream, chocolate curls, strawberries or raspberries

In a saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate in milk. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside. In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until well combined. Stir in chocolate mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon into graham cracker crust. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.

Garnish (optional) with additional whipped topping and a dusting of cinnamon. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Use Chocolate Abuelita or Chocolate Ibarra. If you can't find either Mexican chocolate, use German Sweet Chocolate and add cinnamon and a little almond flavoring to it.

Very nice. I have also a site for recipes for cooking, but you have to translate the Google translate. I am from Slovakia.

Yum, your chocolate pie looks fantastic! I would love to have this for Thanksgiving. The fact that it is cold makes it even better. I love cold pies and cake, especially when their is chocolate involved.

Your Chocolate Cream Pie looks great. Teresa I read about your books from Ben and I just bought a copy. Living in Greece I cannot find Mexican Chocolate. Can I substitute it with any other cooking chocolate?

Wow you're cooking up some yummy love over here! The Mexican chocolate pie looks awesome and I'm not a big dessert girl (but I'm working on making dessert when I have dinner guests.)

On the other hand, shortbread cookies are my favorite! Love your chocolate dipped ones.

Is Mexican chocolate a lot different from American chocolate?

This looks really good and easy to make. I have some leftover Mexican chocolate from when I made my chili. I think I'll put it to good use in a Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie. :)

Teresa this looks delicious! I'm only having 4 people for Thanksgiving and already have apple & pumpkin pies planned - but I may just have to add 1 more! (Can you really ever have too much pie? I think not!)
