Choclate Drizzled Strawberries and Cream Pie

This recipe is from Our Best Bites. They have so many good recipes, you really should go check them out, I haven't tried a recipe of theirs that I haven't liked!  So on to the recipe.  Oh and by the way don't make the strawberry cream pie recipe that I had posted earlier in the year, it doesn't even compare to this one.

Chocolate-Drizzled Strawberries and Cream Pie

Recipe by Our Best Bites1 quart fresh strawberries (frozen’s not gonna cut it here. If you use them and then leave a comment telling us how gross this recipe is, we’ll cut you. Just kidding. But seriously peeps, don’t use frozen strawberries.)

1 8-oz. package cream cheese at room temperature (light is fine)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 c. packed light brown sugar

1 c. heavy whipping cream

1/4 c. powdered sugar

1 9″ graham cracker crust (store-bought or homemade)

1-2 ounces chocolate

In a medium bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. In a separate large bowl, beat the whipping cream and powdered sugar until medium peaks form. Add about 1 c. of the whipping cream mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Beat until smooth and well-combined. Add the remaining whipping cream mixture and mix until just combined. Spread in the graham cracker crust and refrigerate for a few minutes while you prepare the strawberries.

Wash the strawberries and cut off the stems. Blot dry with a paper towel and then gently press, cut side down, into the whipped cream mixture. Set aside.

If using a chocolate bar, break it into equal pieces and place in a small Ziploc bag. Microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes, stopping the microwave every 20 seconds to mash the bag. You want the chocolate to be melted but not hot at all. When the chocolate is melted, snip a corner off the bag and drizzle it over the strawberries. Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving. Serves 8.

So now that you have this recipe go try it and then go get some more of their recipes!  ~Andi

  1. It finally happened to me, I made a recipe from there that I didn't love. I made the Thai Peanut Noodles, and they weren't a homerun. Everything else I've made from them has been awesome though, they're geniuses!
