About the recipe

Recipe courtesy of Joan Demer, who simplified a recipe that called for real whipped cream instead of frozen whipped topping and melted chocolate spread over a graham cracker crust instead of a chocolate pie crust. You can also dress up the pie with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. If you can't fit all the filling into the pie shell, just scoop the leftovers into a small bowl and leave it on your kitchen counter with a spoon. It will find a home.
