did somebody say chocolate?

Oh, yeah....I did!! In celebration of my new blog theme, I am sharing the recipe for this.....
German Sweet Chocolate Cream Pie

It may not look beautiful (I'm not the best at taking food pictures!), but it taste pretty yummy! And it is easy to make. So, with apologies to my friend, Kim, who is trying to be good when it comes to sweets, here's the how-to!

1 pkg (4 oz) German Sweet Chocolate
1/3 cup milk (divided in two amts...2 tbsp and 3 tbsp + 1 tsp)
2 tbsp sugar
1 pkg (3 oz) cream cheese
1 8 oz container Cool Whip
1 8 in chocolate graham cracker crust

Heat chocolate and 2 tbsps milk in saucepan over low heat, stirring until chcolate is melted. In separate bowl,beat sugar and cream cheese (with mixer) until well blended. Add remaining milk and chocolate mixture, beat until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Pour into crust. Freeze 4 hours. Garnish with chocolate curls or crushed chocolate wafers.

Hope you enjoy it.... a little chocolate makes any day better!! :-)


  1. You know what? It is my totally favorite pie too. One more for my list. I used to make it all of the time but really it is one I could sit and eat the whole pie by myself, you German Chocolate + anything. :) I am glad you are celebrating. Life is to short to not celebrate. :) I loved your post by the way.

  2. I just finished my post for today - about my diet!! UGH. German chocolate even sounds heavenly! Once I reach goal weight, I just might celebrate with pie:) Have a super chocolately-sweet day!

  3. Chocolate always looks beautiful. :) Thanks for the new recipe! My husband and I will be sure to eat this in one weekend... or one sitting. yikes.

  4. that does look good. I really like your new background and coloring on the blog. A while back, you asked for ideas on changing your blog name...maybe something like "from the sandwich years to the chocolate years" or "for the love of chocolate sandwiches" ...well, you get the idea. Better brainstorming sessions may be in order! I also like your tagline with the Psalm, which could be incorporated in a new name.

  5. I loved it. I don't care what you say about it not being strong enough!

  6. I forgot all about this pie. Years ago I used to make this and everyone loved it. Thank you so much for reminding me of it again. I can tell your readers that you are right, it is so delicious.
