Chocolate Cream Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by sugarpea

Not too many things better than chocolate pie. Especially when it's homemade AND quick and easy. This pie filling also makes a good puddding. Cook time is cooling time. Prep time does not include pie crust.

I made this for Christmas and it got rave reviews. I used real whipped cream instead of fat-free whipped topping, though. I'll make it again soon.
