Chocolate Cheese Cake Pie

serves 8

In a heat-proof bowl, combine the finely chopped chocolate, 1/2 cup of the heavy cream, and the dark corn syrup. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water. (The bowl should not be touching the water.) Melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally. Remove the bowl from the heat and let cool fro 5-10 minutes. Using an electric mixer beat in the softened cream cheese.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.

Scrape the filling into a prepared crumb crust pie shell and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Makes 6-8 servings.
