So I have a huge thing for Dove Silky Smooth Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Swirl
chocolates. Those things are straight up dangerous in my house. I will eat the entire bag!
I love dark chocolate and raspberries are my favorite fruit so when I saw these one day at the store I was in chocolate heaven. The only next best
thing to put in chocolate is peanut butter.
Anyway I have been trying to get into baking in the dessert way. I bake breads and meals all the time but I was never really into baking pies, cakes
or cookies. This is an easy pie, just don't forget to cook the pie crust! I did but it still tastes fine.
I will eventually venture into some
French pastries that are a favorite of mine, just as soon as the supplies come in the mail!
Mblah's Dark Chocolate Raspberry heaven pie
9 in pie plate (glass)
10 pieces of Dove Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Swirl
1 box of JELL-O Mousse "chocolate" (requires 1 cup milk)
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (can buy in the pie aisle)
3 tbs sugar
5 tbs butter
2 standard size packages of fresh Raspberries
Slivered or diced almonds or nut of choice.
First make the pie crust. Take 1 1/4 cup of crumbs and mix with the sugar. Melt butter in microwave for about 20 seconds. Then stir to melt the rest
of the butter. Now mix the butter in with the crumbs/sugar and mix well. Next firmly press the graham cracker crumb mixture into a 9 inch pie
Preheat oven to 325F and bake crust for about 5-7mins. Let cool for an hour in fridge after cooking before filling. You could use a pre-made pie crust
if you don't want to make it yourself.
Now take the Dove Chocolate pieces and melt in a sauce pan on low (2-3) while constantly stirring. Once melted put in a smaller bowl.
Make pudding according to box. The directions say to mix for four minutes and this is one step you shouldn't skimp on. They even have it in big
letters, must be important!
Once mixed set aside.
Now Take a cup of the raspberries and chop them into half pieces and mix in with the mousse. Blend mousse and raspberries with spoon.
Now take the pie crust out of fridge and use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on the pie crust.
Next spread mousse in pie crust. Top with the rest of the raspberries (don't have to make a heart) and sprinkle pie with almonds. Lastly drizzle the
rest of the melted dove chocolate on top of pie. Set back in fridge and let sit at least 2hrs before eating.
Serve with milk
