There are certain times I have strong cravings for chocolate. Whether or not they’re legitimate, I don’t know, but when I  saw this recipe in Mr. Food’s Simply Chocolate cookbook, I had to make it. I tweaked it to make it even more “chocolatey”  to suit my craving, and I was really happy with how it turned out. It doesn’t require anything fancy, and after you freeze it, it has a really nice texture.
Here is what you need:

, Freezer Chocolate Pie, Joyful Homemaking

1/4 cup of cocoa powder (I used dark cocoa, but use what you like best)
3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/4 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of milk
4 ounces of softened cream cheese
16 ounce container of cool whip (thawed)
chocolate cookie pie crust

Blend the cocoa and oil together, and then add the sugar and milk. , Freezer Chocolate Pie, Joyful Homemaking

Then, with a mixer, beat the cream cheese and the chocolate mixture.

When it’s a smooth consistency, gently stir in half of the cool whip. (8 oz.)
After this, pour the mixture into your pie crust.

Isn’t that so easy!?
Now freeze for about 3 hours or until you’re ready to serve it. Then top with the remaining cool whip, and you’re ready to eat!

This will definitely satisfy a chocolate craving!  Yum!  Hope you enjoy!

  1. This looks sooo delicious, I must go to the grocery store right now and get the ingredients, and I JUST took off my shoes! >_< Yum! 🙂

  2. Sounds delicious. Now if my screen was wonka vision and I could pull the chocolate out of the screen that would be great! Thanks for linking with DIY under $5!

  3. Margo, what a great dessert. So cool and inviting on a hot summer evening. Hope you are having a great week end and thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    See you soon!

  4. What is a substitute for Cool Whip as I don’t believe we have it in Australia? Also I am unaware if we have anything like the base you used which is disappointing. Will definitely try this when I can.

    1. Whipping cream could probably be substituted for the cool whip. Chocolate cookies could be crushed and made into a crust. I hope this helps.
