No Bake Three Ingredients Hershey Pie



Well, spring is officially here to stay in the good ol’ south, and that means that everything is finally starting to come back to life after a cold, dreary winter.  Amen to the sound of children’s laughter out in the back yard, breezy evenings under the stars, lots of sunshine, and warmer temperatures! 

I don’t know about you, but I tend to eat lighter during the summer months – mostly because the heat can get miserable ‘round these parts, and if you eat too much it just makes you feel even more miserable.  Therefore, during the summer I tend to stick with lighter, cooler desserts like frozen yogurt and ice cream, or I don’t eat dessert at all.  #ThatLastPartIsALie

Anywho, that’s exactly why I love this dessert.  It’s light, it’s fluffy, and it’s served cold.  It’s basically the perfect dessert for the summer months.  Not to mention it’s only three ingredients, you don’t have to bake it, and it only takes about 15 minutes to make.  Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?

Brian’s mom introduced this recipe to me when he and I first started dating and I’ve been making it ever since!

Use It

Double boiler (or you can just use the microwave if you don’t have one)

Buy It

6.8 oz. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almonds Bar (this is the giant size bar)
12 oz. tub Cool Whip (I use reduced fat… summer is bikini season after all)
Graham cracker pie crust

Make It

1. Break up the Hershey bar and melt the pieces in your double boiler.  (You can melt them in the microwave if you don’t have a double boiler.)

2. Once chocolate is completely melted, remove the top pot from your double boiler and quickly stir cool whip in with the melted chocolate until well mixed.  The chocolate hardens pretty quickly, so make sure you have your cool whip ready to go as soon as you remove the melted chocolate from the heat.

3. Pour the melted chocolate/cool whip mixture into pie crust and freeze for at least four hours before serving.  I usually try to freeze mine overnight. 

Optional – turn on the outdoor twinkle lights (y’all know I’m all about those!), crank up the summer play list, and enjoy on the back porch.  It’s so good, y’all.
