Recipe type: Dessert Pies
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 Cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 Cup butter, melted
  • 2 3/4 Cups (16 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
  • 2 Cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, cocoa and granulated sugar in 9-inch pie plate. Stir in butter until moistened; press onto bottom and up side of pie plate.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle 1/2 cup morsels over bottom of hot crust; let stand for 10 minutes or until all morsels are shiny. Spread chocolate over bottom and up side of crust. Cool to room temperature.
