  • Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: 1 wedge)
  • Hands-on: 35 Minutes
  • Total: 1 Hour, 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 25 chocolate wafers (such as Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers)
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 6 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon Chambord (raspberry-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pound small strawberries, hulled and cut in half

Preparation

1. Place chocolate wafers in a food processor, and process until finely ground. Place the chopped chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH for 45 seconds or until chocolate melts, stirring every 15 seconds. Add melted chocolate and oil to processor; process until well combined. Gently press the mixture into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate or removable-bottom tart pan coated with cooking spray. Place in freezer 15 minutes or until set.

2. Place cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread over bottom of crust. Place fruit spread in a large microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 10 seconds or until softened. Add Chambord and juice; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add berry halves; toss to combine. Arrange berry halves over pie. Chill for 30 minutes before serving.
