I have to admit, this is by far the easiest, most delicious, and incredibly fancy dishes that I have eaten in a long time!
With almost no cooking skills required, you just can never go wrong with this amazing chocolate cream pie preparation!
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C and lightly grease a baking dish. Finely crumble or crush digestive biscuits in a food processor until they are evenly ground. Transfer the crushed biscuits in to a bowl and add melted butter and powdered white sugar to it. Mix everything well until the mixture is well blended and transfer it to the prepared baking dish. Now spread this mixture evenly throughout the base of the baking dish.
Bake the biscuit base in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown in color. Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool completely for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, in another bowl whip the cream cheese for about 5 minutes or until it is smooth and soft in texture. Add powdered white sugar, vanilla extract to the cream cheese, and whisk everything again until the mixture is smooth in consistency.
Add cocoa powder and full fat milk to the cream cheese mixture and whisk the ingredients again until the mixture turns smooth and combines well. Now, fold the whipped cream in to the cream cheese mixture with light hands until it combines well together. Transfer the mixture in to the cooled pie dish and evenly spread it over the top. Cover the baking dish with cling film and seal it well. Chill the cream pie for 2 hours at least or overnight until the mixture sets well. Drizzle the chocolate cream pie with chocolate syrup, slice and serve!
Make sure you move your hands in only one direction while you fold in the whipped cream. Try to use the cold whipped cream for better results. Maintain the baking temperature as recommended as you might need to keep a watch in the final minutes of baking.
