Chocolate Cream Pie

According to my husband, this is the perfect chocolate cream pie.  You start with a premade Oreo pie crust, and add a box of chocolate pie filling.  What makes it special is the homemade whipped chocolate ganache.  It is so good.  The secret is to serve it cold.  If the ganache sits out too long the topping gets soft and the texture is not as nice.

Chocolate Cream Pie is super easy to make, and it will not heat up your kitchen in the summer.  Who can say no to a first rate dessert that only takes a few minutes to prepare?   Enjoy.
