Chocolate Raspberry Jello Pie

When I was living with my parents and in my later years of high school, there was a watermelon Jello pie recipe that I just loved.  I made it at family gatherings and a few cookouts over the years.  I haven’t been able to find watermelon Jello anymore, but this particular recipe will accomodate any flavor of Jello.

So, I decided to try a chocolate raspberry Jello pie.  Everything was done exactly the same as the watermelon pie recipe, except I used a chocolate graham cracker crust and raspberry Jello (and of course, I didn’t decorate the pie like a watermelon!).

The only thing I did that was not in the recipe was to spread a layer of warmed hot fudge topping on the pie crust.  I let it harden back up in the refrigerator before pouring over the pie filling.  However, I found that the fudge layer did not stay solid as I expected at the bottom of the filling – it poured out when I cut the pie!  So I would not add the hot fudge layer next time.

I drizzled a good amount of chocolate sauce over the pie before serving as well!  It was so yummy, and brought back memories from the watermelon pie days.

If you’re after a very cooling and light dessert this summer, this pie, in any Jello flavor you want, would be the perfect choice.

    The colors alone are enough to make me want to try it. Plus, a cool, delicious treat is just the thing for the summer heat…if it ever arrives in this part of the country!

    I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.

    Best,

      Hello! There is a link to the recipe in the blog post. Some websites do not like people to post their recipes on their blogs, so in some cases I will post a link to the recipe, instead of posting it on my blog. If you are not able to see the link in the post, it is here: http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/wiggly-watermelon-cool-n-53369.aspx?

      The recipe on that link is a base recipe. The changes I used to make it “chocolate raspberry” are described in the post above. Please have a re-read of it for more details!
