Are you looking for a chocolate fix? Bianna's pie is just the right combination of rich chocolate, crispy crust and crunchy toasted nuts.


  • 1 graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 8oz package light Philadelphia cream cheese
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • 1/8th teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 4 tablespoons Hershey's cocoa
  • 2 1/2 cartons (8 oz) Kraft light cool whip
  • Toasted pecan, almond, or walnut chips
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and cocoa and mix with a hand mixer on medium speed until the mixture is smooth.

    Add cool whip and continue mixing until all of cool whip is blended with the filling and the mixture becomes thick. Pour filling into the pie crust. Sprinkle with toasted nuts, if desired.
