Chocolate cream pie is one of the desserts that everybody love. It has the best taste ever. It is rich in chocolate. You’ll be using both chocolate chips and cocoa powder in the filling. The texture of this pie is very creamy. You can have this pie any time that you want, but it goes perfectly after a great dinner. In addition to this, you can have this pie in special occasions like small parties, family gatherings or even on holidays.
This recipe is a bit healthier because there isn’t much sugar in it and only semi-sweet chocolate chips are incorporated in the filling. This gives it a real chocolaty taste. This pie is easily made. It takes few minutes to prepare and it is best served while it’s cold. Yum!
