BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
2 (8 ounce) packages
PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
COOL WHIP DIPS Chocolate
OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1 1/2 cups
I used this recipe to make a filling for a cake. It was pretty good, but I made a few changes. First, I couldn't find cool whip dips, so I just combined cool whip with instant chocolate pudding mix; it worked well. Also, I added some crushed oreo cookies to the mix. Next time I make it, I will include more cool whip and some sour cream.
Okay, I had to use regular Cool Whip, but it came out like a French silk. Love it!
This recipe was super easy. The only problem I had was finding the Cool Whip Dips- Chocolate. Like a previous reviewer I used instant chocolate pudding. I thought that gave the cool whip a bit of an odd texture, but it tasted great.
Like others who commented, I tried adding the chocolate pudding mix in. It made the mixture gritty, so I added a little extra cool whip (ended up using the whole container, just about) and drizzled in some milk very slowly until the grittiness was gone.
I've made this a few times and even changed it up a little. I skipped the chocolate and berries, used plain cool whip( the dips kind isn't available where i live)and a plain graham crust to make a plain cheesecake pie. Last time i added blueberry pie filling while blending. Amazing!! It tastes like a cheesecake but is so simple to make and you can add whatever you like to fit you! This is a regular go-to recipe for me now and the kids and husband keep requesting it!
