Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Cream Pie

I absolutely love strawberries, and I have ever since I can remember.  So, when strawberry season hits around here, I buy bunches of them.  Here in the area of the country that I live in, I head over to Whitaker Farms where I can pick my own, or buy them just picked that morning if I’m running short on time.  You better believe that I am there at least once a week buying 4 quarts at a time, at the very minimum.

I take full advantage of those fresh berries.  I have so many recipes that I adore for them though, it’s hard to decide which one to do first.  However, this Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Cream Pie is always the very first thing that I go to make, and I try to make as many as I can before the season is over.  I could not envision spring without this pie being part of it.  I really think that I have developed feelings for it.

And, guess what?  You don’t even have to heat up your kitchen to pull this one off! Yep, that’s right.  No cooking what-so-ever!  Just assemble it, pop it in the fridge, and wah-lah!  Mission delicious complete.

So, you interested yet?  I just ate the last slice of the 2nd one of these pies I have made so far this season, and I’m certainly already interested in making another one!

Here’s what you need:

Melt 1 cup of of the white chocolate chips in the microwave for about 15 seconds, being careful not to burn.  Set aside.

Beat the heavy cream, vanilla extract, & 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 half cup of confectioners sugar, & a cup of melted white chocolate.

Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

Spread the cream into the chocolate pie crust.  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… and then the white chocolate.  (I like a lot of chocolate on top, but you can reduce it if you like less)

 

Refrigerate until set.  Make sure you eat this within 2-3 days (like it could actually last that long!) since it is made with fresh berries.
