Here's the dessert recipe I promised to share! It is so darn good!! Perfect actually! I'm a strawberry lover and this just made my life bliss! And the chocolate too...double bliss!:)
A definite MUST TRY!
Chocolate Drizzled Strawberries & Cream Pie
(I know you're probably drooling right now!! Just looking at it makes my mouth start watering!)
1 quart fresh strawberries (no frozen here!)
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature (you can use light)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 9" graham cracker crust (I used a chocolate graham cracker crust...YUM!)
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
Beat the cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl beat the whipping cream and powdered sugar until medium peaks form. Add about 1 cup of the whipping cream to the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth and well combined. Add the remaining whipping cream and mix until just combined. Spread into the graham cracker crust and place in the refrigerator while you prepare the strawberries.
Wash the strawberries and cut off the stems. Blot them dry with a paper towel. Gently press them cut side down into the whipped cream mixture until the pie is covered. Set aside.
Place the chocolate chips in a ziploc baggie. Microwave for 20 second intervals, mixing with your hand in between, until chocolate is melted...not hot, but melted. Snip off a little of the corner and drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving!
Kyla sure had fun getting the strawberries ready & placing them on the pie...she did quite an amazing job too if I do say so myself!:)
