Wow!! Rich Fudgy Chocolate Filling with an Oreo crust and Cool Whip!! Where to begin! Lets start with thechocolate Cream!

As y’all know, I love chocolate!! I have ate things that are really chocolate fudge, sauce, ice cream, cake, bars, and brownies staked on top of each other no joke! I love rich chocolate!! You don’t want to see me on halloween! It takes my days to get back to my normal sleeping scheduale after my sugar high!! Its awesome! You know how sometimes a filling or frosting can be overally heavy?  When I was younger, me and my friend Malina made these cupcakes and instead of making frosting, we made pudding. It was good but I like light fluffy type frosting, the pudding was dense and heavy. This is a little on the heavy side so I added some Cool Whip!

 

The Cool Whip really helps!! It gives it that extra flavor and it has the light fluffy flavor! The cool whip is optional but I suggest you do it. It gives the pie more flavor! The cool whip goes so nice with the pie crust. Since the pie crust is flaky it absorbs the flavor of the cool whip. I would break the crust into pieces and dip them into cool whip if I could!! I would love it!! With the extra layer of chocolate to settle it is awesome! The chocolate gets in the crust to! To me, pie is basic, a crust with a filling and a topping. I like to keep my pies under 7 layers so all the flavors are concentrated and can get soaked into each other. Thats just my personal thing though. Get creatice and make the pies how ever you want!
