Chocolate Cream Pie

Mr.Perfect LOVES chocolate pie! At our wedding he asked for chocolate cream pie instead of a groom's cake. I knew from the start that a great chocolate cream pie recipe would be the key to happiness in our house. After a long search and trial and error I've finally found a pie recipe that isn't too heavy or too sweet. Thank you for the wonderful pie!

What you need:
  • 2 large 4.25oz Hershey's chocolate bars (I like the kind with almonds)
  • 1  1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 pie crust (I used an Oreo crust)

What you do:

Stir constantly as you heat the chocolate, marshmallows and milk in a pan over low heat.

When the chocolate and marshmallows are melted remove from heat. Transfer mixture to a bowl and allow to cool in the refrigerator.

Once the chocolate mixture is completely cool, fold in the whipped cream.
 Do not attempt to sample this...
  you will end up eating it all before it becomes a pie.

Pour the chocolate cream into the pie plate and allow to set in the refrigerator for about 3 hours, but overnight is best.
I like to fancy up my pie with some chocolate shavings.
 Happy Birthday Mr.Perfect!
