A few years ago ( pre-blog days) I made WW Creamy Lemon Pie and just loved it. It had been on my mind for the past few weeks because of a post WW made on facebook, linking up the recipe. I remembered how good and how easy it was, and thought it might actually make a really good creamy chocolate pie with a few changes. Wow...I was so right!
As you can see, I didn't bother making my own crust this time. I went with a store bought Oreo Pie Crust from Nabisco. But if you would rather, you could make your own crust with graham crackers or oreo cookies or even those 100 calorie oreo packs. ( Nutritional information might be different from what is provided if you choose to use another type of crust)
I topped this lovely pie with some Fat Free Whipped Topping, a little bit of dark chocolate shavings ( using my handy microplane) and a few chocolate covered espresso beans.
I know you want to take a bite... :)

4. Spread with whipped topping and garnish as desired. Serve cold. Keep leftovers in refrigerator.
Boy, this pie really was good. If you aren't a fan of coffee, don't worry, you can't really taste it. It just enhances the chocolate flavor..but you could just leave it out if you wish. If you really like coffee, add a bit more for a nice "mocha" flavor. The chocolate layer really does stay so nice and creamy and because the milk is already sweetened, there is no need for any additional sugar.
While I loved the lemon version of this pie...what can I say? Sometimes a girl just NEEDS chocolate!
I will be honest with you, I tried to make an orange version of this pie with a ginger cookie crust....EPIC FAIL! lol I was glad the chocolate version turned out so well. :)
