Chocolate Strawberry Pie

Wow, it's been a month and a half since I've posted on here last. There has been a lot going on, including my sister passing away. So I apologize for taking such a long break. And thank you for your patience.

Today's recipe is one I threw together for a treat on Mother's Day. My wonderful husband cooked a DELICIOUS dinner for me and while he was working on that, I was pondering on what to do with the strawberries we had sitting in our fridge. My first thought was to make a fresh strawberry pie. I have a really good recipe that I thought I'd try. But then I remembered how long it took to make. That was out!
I decided to use the container of strawberry glaze to mix with sliced strawberries to make a quick, fresh strawberry pie. And using a graham cracker crust would make it even more quick. So I sat on my couch picturing this pie I was going to make, when all of a sudden, there was a flash of chocolate (genious, really). That's when I decided to make this pie a chocolate strawberry pie, and boy am I glad I did. It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!!!!! Everyone LOVED it! And I loved how quick and easy it was.
Here's what you'll need:
1 1/4 C. chocolate graham cracker crumbs (or you could use 1 1/2 c. oreos and no sugar)
1/4 c. sugar
6 T. melted butter
Mix together and press into a 9 inch (I used a 9 1/2 inch) pie plate. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Or you could chill the uncooked crust for 45 mintues instead. But since I was going for the quick option, I baked it.
While the crust is cooling, combine one container of strawberry glaze with 2 lbs. halved strawberries. Dump into cooled crust and refrigerate. When you're ready to serve the pie, slice it and drizzle (or glob) warmed hot fudge sauce over top. Soooooo easy and yummy too!!!
Just take a look at this picture for a minute and try to taste the sinful combination of chocolate and strawberries. Now go make it; you'll be glad you did!!!
