Hershey's chocolate is great for melting! I find that it melts quickly and evenly, making it the perfect choice for this recipe.
Yes, Hershey's chocolate will harden if left to cool at room temperature. However, when mixed with whipped topping it becomes the perfect creamy texture.
If you don't have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate on the stovetop. Place the chopped chocolate in a heat-proof bowl set over a medium saucepan of simmering water. Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and continue with the recipe as directed.
Chocolate can seize, or turn into a thick clumpy mess, when it's overheated or if it comes into contact with water. If this happens, don't despair! You can often salvage seized chocolate by stirring in a few tablespoons of milk until smooth.
Things to know
- If you don't want to use a premade crust, you can make your own crust with chocolate graham crackers or with Oreo's mixed with melted butter.
- Instead of melting the chocolate in the microwave you can melt them over low heat in a double boiler if you prefer.
- Be sure to stir the melted chocolate well in between times in the microwave so that it doesn't scorch.
- Do not mix the chocolate and whipped topping with an electric mixer, this will cause the whipped topping to thin out.
- Turn a plastic bag into a piping bag by sniping off the tip and fill it with whipped topping to add pretty dollops to the top of the pie.
- For easy slicing use a wet knife to get a perfect slice.
- Use a cheese grater for the chocolate curls on top of the pie - it's so pretty!
- If you are not a fan of Cool Whip, you can use homemade whipped cream if you prefer.
- Can't find Hershey's bars? You can use Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips instead.
- Take this sweet treat up a notch by adding a chocolate drizzle on the top with Hershey's Chocolate syrup.
- You can also top this pie with melted marshmallows if you want a s'mores taste.
Refrigerate - Cover the pie with the dome cover for the pie crust, and store in the fridge for up to five days.
