Shockingly Simple Symphony Pie

by Laura
Here’s another great dessert. If you want to make a sweet for your sweetie for Valentine’s but are short on time, this could be your answer. This pie is quick and easy, but it’s also tasty and impressive. Who knew that chocolate, water, and cool whip in a pie crust could taste this good. I got this recipe from Sara at My Sisters’ Cucina. When I made this my whole family loved it and were asking for seconds. I must tell you that while I was making this, I thought I had a graham cracker crust in my pantry. However, when I went to get it I found out they were shortbread crusts. So I went ahead and used that. It was delicious. My one son said it was is favorite part of the pie. This recipe is definitely a keeper and no one has to know how easy it was to make.

Symphony Pie
1 King Size Symphony bar (milk chocolate or toffee chip, Sara recommends the milk chocolate so that’s what I used)
1/4 cup water
1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip
Graham Cracker Pie Crust (or any other prepared crust, I used shortbread)
Break up Symphony bar and add water in large microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Remove and mix with spoon so that all of the chocolate is melted. Add Cool Whip and mix very well. (I put one scoop in the chocolate first and mixed that in to cool the chocolate before I add the rest of the cool whip) Do this for several minutes making, sure that all of the chocolate is incorporated. Pour chocolate mixture into Graham Cracker Pie Crust and spread evenly. Cover and freeze for 3 hours before served. It will stay good in the freezer for weeks.

Interesting, thank you so much! I spent my childhood in Yorkshire in the UK, and I’ve been trying to find a recipe for this delicious pie I remember eating all the time, but can’t remember what we called it!!! Do you know any famous pie recipes from Yorkshire?

I just made this for a dinner party. I added 1/2 more Symphony bar and used the almond/toffee one. Just mixed it with 1/8 cup more water and used Cool Whip Lite. It was amazing! I also used the shortbread crust which I think is better than the graham cracker!

Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Laura, that looks so good!

At Christmas, my mom made these little balls out of the filling and rolled them in crushed cookies. So I can imagine what that pie must taste like…mmm.
