No-Bake Frozen Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe

The Perfect Chocolate Graham Crust Summertime Dessert

by: Maija Moments

I love summer because it's the season of laid-back, easy-going outdoor entertaining. In the summer, it's perfectly acceptable to call friends up the day before and say bring your kids, a cooler of beverages, and a potluck item (sometimes even your own lawn chairs!), and come hang out by the pool, beach, or in the backyard for the day. I LOVE these kinds of invitations and have many go-to recipes that are perfect for summer barbecues, including this Frozen Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe, which just happens to be one of my husband's favourite desserts.

Except it’s summer and the hockey season is officially over.

So what do hockey moms do in the summer?

Does this ever happen to you? The kids are finally in bed and surprisingly they are all asleep, the kitchen has been cleaned by some sort of kitchen fairy miracle, and there is nothing on your to-do list that can’t wait until tomorrow. So you sit on the couch, turn on the tv and get ready for a quiet evening that consists of you and your favourite shows. Except you want need’re craving something sweet or maybe salty but you just can’t put your finger on what.

So how do you decide? Well, there’s a game for that!

Maija is a professional work-outside-the-home mom to 3+1 (the +1 being her teenage sister and not her husband). Recently, she’s gone from being a stressed out cop's wife and wanna-be stay-at-home-mom to moving 3,000kms across the country for a job opportunity for her.

Now she brings home ALL the bacon and is still expected to cook it! 

Maija has often said that she is a sometimes food mom which means that in her house there are everyday foods like fruits, veggies and homemade bread (okay once there was homemade bread—but it still counts!) and there are sometimes food like cookies, drive-thru meals and yes even dinners that call for canned soup in the list of ingredients.
