Valentine's Day Dessert: Amazing No Bake White Chocolate Strawberry Pie

The most perfect Valentine's Day Dessert Ever!
 Let me preface this post by saying that this cake, nay pie, is in NO WAY healthy. Not even remotely close. In fact, it does not have a single healthy ingredient in it. It is, however, incredibly delicious and amazing, and many other adjectives. I had promised a friend that I would make a cake with chocolate and strawberries for his birthday last weekend, so I scoured pinterest for potential recipes. That's when I found this beauty, titled Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie. BOOM. Done.

An empty pie shell is a sad pie shell.


A happy pie, full of white chocolate cheesecake and strawberries!
I really can't tell you how amazing this pie was. I got so many compliments. It was so delicious and rich that I'm considering making it again for my own birthday - yeah, for some reason I end up making my own birthday desserts every year, wtf? Someone get on this, stat! I would make it for Valentine's Day, but I'm thinking of going wither something Peanut Butter/Chocolate related (Tony's preference, not mine) or Red Velvet (again, Tony's choice, but that's what VDay is all about, right?).

Here's the recipe from Evoking You, with a few modifications of my own.

Ingredients:
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners (powdered) sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 chocolate pie crust (I used Oreo)
Directions:
  1. Melt 1 cup of of the white chocolate chips in the microwave for about 15 seconds, being careful not to burn.  Set aside.
  2. Beat the heavy cream, vanilla extract, & 1/2 cup of the confectioners sugar with an electric mixer in a bowl until it becomes whipped cream.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, the other half cup of confectioners sugar, & the cup of melted white chocolate. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until blended well.
  4. Spread the cream into the chocolate pie crust.  Then, press the sliced berries into the mixture all over it.  Find every single available nook & cranny, and shove a berry in it! I'm not going to like, it's going to get messy. Making sure your strawberries are dried is somewhat helpful.
  5. Melt the remaining white chocolate in one bowl & melt the milk chocolate in another.  Drizzle the melted milk chocolate on first, then the white chocolate. I put the chocolate into a plastic baggie with the corner snipped off and drizzled.
  6. Refrigerate until set.
I'm going to tell you right now, the pie will probably look pretty good, but serving it is pretty messy. I'm not sure what recipe Evoking You followed, because my pie did not look ANYTHING like her's at all. See for yourself:

Looks ever so lovely, right?


Mine, a delicious blob of deliciousness.

So yeah, it may not look so great when you're serving it, but I can assure it will be one of the best things you've ever put into your mouth.
