Author: Nellie- Butter With A Side of Bread


  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tsp shortening
  • 1 Oreo pie crust I have also used a graham cracker crust and both options are fabulous
  • 1 8- oz block cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tub Cool Whip 8 oz
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries halved


  • Combine chocolate chips and shortening and melt in the microwave. I usually microwave it for about 30 seconds and then stir. If needed, microwave for another 15-20 seconds and stir again. Stir until well combined and then pour about 3/4 of the mixture into the bottom of the crust and refrigerate until firm.
  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and vanilla until smooth.
  • Fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Pour (or scoop) the mixture into the crust and refrigerate overnight.
  • Arrange the strawberries on top of the pie. Microwave the remaining chocolate and drizzle over the top. I usually refrigerate again for about an hour before serving. You can also add the strawberries and chocolate before refrigerating overnight - that works great too!
