This is a really easy desert--especially if you just go ahead and buy a pre-made chocolate graham crust. Everyone seems to like this. I don't always drizzle the chocolate on the top, but it is still well received. Goes nicely with a dollop of cool whip.
Strawberries do double duty in this classic strawberry pie recipe. Some are blended into a puree and combined with gelatin, then more fresh berries are added to the filling.
