This dessert recipe is S-I-M-P-L-E and quick to put together. We had company over to eat dinner and watch the NFL playoff games this weekend. Well, I knew most of my time would be consumed in making dinner so I had to fall back on a simple dessert. And, Hershey Pie it was. You only need three ingredients! I realize it could look a little prettier and I really did have the best of intentions in adding something extra to the top of it, but just flat ran out of time.
Simple Hershey Pieon January 18, 2012
4.4 oz. Hershey chocolate bar (the big bar)
1 lb. (16 oz.) Cool Whip (I used Lite)
6 oz. Oreo Crust
1. Break apart chocolate bar and melt in a sauce pan on medium-low heat. Stir so the chocolate does not burn. This step will not take long.
2. When chocolate is completely melted (no lumps anywhere) and smooth, remove from heat. Slowly add in the Cool Whip. Use a whisk to fully mix and incorporate the whipped topping into the chocolate. The Cool Whip will melt and appear light. This is fine…it will firm up more once it is frozen.
3. Pour into the pie shell. Freeze until ready to serve.
(Notes: Keep stored in freezer. Also, you can also use any flavor pie crust you prefer like graham, chocolate, etc.)
