Got me to thinking about one of my favorite whipped cream recipes, ok really Cool Whip, but it counts right.
1 King Size Symphony bar (milk chocolate or toffee chip, but I think the toffee is the best!)
1/4 cup water
1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip
Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Break up Symphony bar (do not add one or two squares, set aside to use latter for garnish) and add water in large microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Remove and mix with spoon so that all of the chocolate is melted.
Add Cool Whip and mix very well. But also gently. Making, sure that all of the chocolate is incorporated.
Pour chocolate mixture into Graham Cracker Pie Crust and spread evenly.
Cover and freeze for 3 hours before served.
I like to use whipped cream from a can and add a little decoration on top.
Pull out those Symphony squares you saved from the beginning, if you haven’t eaten them already, grate them evenly on top of the pie for garnish.
