Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie
Chocolate covered strawberries in a cream cheese pie - delish! Perfect dessert for a special occasion.
- 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 chocolate pie crust, like Oreo
Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 20mins
Melt 3/4 cup of of the white chocolate chips in the microwave (30 second intervals) for about 1-2 minutes, being careful not to burn. Set aside.
Beat the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup of the confectioners sugar with an electric mixer in a bowl until it becomes thick.
In a separate bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, the other 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, and the cup of melted white chocolate. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Spread the cream cheese mixture into the chocolate pie crust. (I recommend not putting all of the cream in the crust at first. There is a lot of cream and it will overflow as you stuff in the quart of strawberries.) Then, press the sliced berries into the mixture ALL over it. Find every single available nook & cranny, and shove a berry in it!
Melt the remaining white chocolate in one bowl & melt the milk chocolate in another. Drizzle the melted milk chocolate on first…then the white chocolate. Make sure the drizzles are thin and spread out because if you pour the chocolate on top (like i did) it is impossible to cut when the chocolate chips harden again.
