Chocolate Cream Pie


My oldest nephew turned 15!  For the last few years he's asked for Chocolate Cream Pie for his birthday dessert.  I used to use a mix.  It was a seriously good mix.  They don't make it anymore. Of course.  I've tried a lot of different recipes to find one as good as that mix.  I even tried PW's which was really really good but this one...this one is the best I've tried.  It's really smooth and chocolaty and but too chocolaty.  I used Oreo crusts and topped them with Rich's whipped cream.

A little story about Rich's whipped cream.  I've been searching for a frosting recipe that is similar to Kroger's bakery frosting...I'm sure they use a mix.  Someone suggested Rich's Butter cream...but it's not butter cream, it's whipped.  So when I saw the Rich's Whipped at GFS I thought maybe that would be it.  It isn't.  It just makes a whipped topping very similar to Cool Whip but richer...ha ha.  Now I feel like I need to try the Butter cream to compare.  

I also heard Pastry Pride is like the whippy frosting but I can only find it at Costco.  Online. By the case. :(  

Anyway, try the pie, it's delicious, and sorry about the super lame picture.  I guess I'll just have to make more to photograph. :)
