I need a little Chocolate

I have been craving chocolate, it's that time of month when chocolate is a must. And since it's probably not appropriate to do this



Or this




OR THIS



I decided to make something with chocolate in it, this is one of my chocolate quick fixes. For emergencies only!

Chocolate Mousse & Peanut Butter Pie

Ingred.

15 oreos

2T. melted butter

1 pkg peanut butter chips

4 oz softened cream cheese

1/3c. powdered sugar

1/2c. milk

1 pkg unflavored gelatin

3T. cold water

3T. boiling water

1/2c. sugar

1/2c. dark cocoa powder

1c. cold whipping cream

1t. creme de cocoa

Run the oreos through a food processor until finely ground, mix with the melted butter and press into a pie plate. Beat the cream cheese, melt the pb chips (save a few aside to garnish with)in microwave. Add powdered sugar and milk to cream cheese- mix well. Stir in the melted chips. Spread over the crust in the bottom of the pie plate.

Sprinkle gelatin over cold water, stir then add in the boiling water, set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together the sugar and cocoa powder. Stir in the cream and creme de cocoa. Beat until peaks form, add in the gelatin and beat until there are stiff peaks. Spread over the PB layer.

Sprinkle with the remaining chips and refridgerate, for about 3 hours. Slice and serve, (or just grab a fork and dig in)


I guess this will do, unless anyone has a tub full of chocolate handy???? = )

Where were you 2 days ago when I needed an emergency chocolate fix? This looks scrumptious and oh so creamy.

Several years ago, I worked at a retail store and one of the girls there was a true chocoholic. She was in the back shoveling chocolate in her mouth when I walked in on her. She was so embarassed and I was in shock. She had chocolate all over her mouth, chin and face and she didn't even know it. She was embarassed because she was caught, not for the latter.

Guess you gotta do what you gotta do.
