This is a yummy Chocolate Layer Pie. Its a recipe I came up with through a recipe for a French Silk pie I make. :-) If you use oreos...PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SCRAPE OUT ALL OF THE FILLING! Dont leave any filling on the cookie, because this will cause your crust to get funky and it will burn. :-) I do not suggest using oreos...rather just use plain chocolate cookie crumbs. :-)

Love, this is a beautifully rich pie! So creamy and delicious! I did have a few questions while preparing. #1 the amount is not given for the vanilla, so I used about 1 tsp in the chocolate filling layer. #2 The amount was not given for the whipped topping. I must have used too much because when I added it to the pie shell, it almost filled it up, so I removed half and used it to top the chocolate filling layer with. :) I also didn't have enough german chocolate on hand, so used 2 oz. german chocolate, 2 oz semi-sweet, which worked out very nicely ;). Also, I wanted to mention, to cool the pie shell before filling with the whipped topping. Great pie, Love! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for suggesting this delicious dessert! I found this so easy to make and yet so pretty! When I added the chocolate shavings on top of the whip cream layer, it looked like a picture right out of a magazine! I added 1 tsp of vanilla to the chocolate layer as Bev suggested. (I'm also glad she reminded me to let the crust cool before adding the first layer--thanks) Thanks for this great recipe! I will be making this creamy chocolate treat again!
Rich, decadent pie, a combo of FRench Silk and cream cheese, was sooooo rich, I thought I was in chocolate pie heaven...Ty Love, I will make this again!
