Have you noticed I am doing a week of No-Bake desserts? It’s so gloriously warm/hot/cold here that I have not wanted to turn on my oven.
(Cold only at night, it was 57 the other night! But other than that I am LOVING the weather.)
Now I know this is a chocolate pie, but I promise there is no oven involved.
It’s all glorious chocolate. With a fabulous shortbread crust and smooth homemade whipped cream of course.
My husband said it was “too rich” and “too chocolately” and I was all, “Who are you? We don’t say such things in this house!”
And he was all, “Are there any Strawberry Shortcake Cups left?”
And I said, “Shame on you! This is CHOCOLATE!”
And he looked at me in disbelief. “I don’t LIKE chocolate.”
I cried, “I feel like I don’t even KNOW YOU!”
And with that a part of me died.
But then I realized that there is more for me so WOO HOO!

If you want to make your shortbread crust from scratch you can use this shortbread cookie crust recipe, and I do recommend using Walkers. There is just no comparison in rich buttery flavor.
Did I mention that I got this whole pie to myself? And it was still gone in 2 days. **shame spiral**
