YAY! Another post about chocolate...

Well My Friends, it's been a while since I wrote a post about my favorite ingredient-chocolate. I sadly gave up baking for Lent(call me crazy-everyone has!) but I have been craving sweet creation! I decided there was only one way to get around my Lenten sacrifice & still have the satisfaction of eating a yummy chocolate dessert without baking-Chocolate Cream Pie! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Its so simple & so sinful :) I hope you will all enjoy it!

Chocolate Cream Pie
Serves 8

½ cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch, sifted
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 cups milk
2 oz. chopped bittersweet chocolate
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 pre made Oreo cookie crust
sweetened whipped cream
chocolate shavings

1)In a small pot, stir sugar, cornstarch and cocoa powder together.
2)Whisk in milk and place over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil and starts to thicken.
3)Once hot and thick remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate and vanilla.
4)Pour into pie plate and cover with plastic wrap. **Be sure to place the plastic wrap directly on the filling**.
**Refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely chilled and plastic wrap comes off clean**.
5) Spread homemade whipped cream over pie & cover with chocoloate shavings
