Chocolate crust with a milk chocolate coating, fluffy chocolate filling, whipped cream, and a chocolate drizzle: this pie is not for the faint of heart!

Yield

12 servings

Ingredients

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup Nestlé® Toll House® baking cocoa
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 3/4 cups (16 ounces) Nestlé Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided use
2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided use
2 teaspoons confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

Combine graham cracker crumbs, cocoa and sugar in 9-inch pie plate. Stir in butter until all ingredients are moistened; press onto bottom and up sides of pie plate.

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 sides of crust. Cool to room temperature.

Microwave 2 cups morsels and 3/4 cup cream in large, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Beat remaining cream, sugar and vanilla extract in chilled small mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Fold 2 cups whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Spoon into crust; swirl top. Garnish with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate until firm.

Microwave remaining 1/4 cup morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) power for about 30 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle chocolate over pie; let stand a few minutes before serving.
