1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Baking Cocoa
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 3/4 cups (16 ounces) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, 
2 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE graham  cracker crumbs, cocoa and granulated sugar in 9-inch 
pie plate. Stir in butter until moistened; press onto bottom and up 
side of pie plate. 

BAKE for 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle 1/2 cup morsels over bottom of hot 
crust; let stand for 10 minutes or until all morsels are shiny. Spread 
chocolate over bottom and up side of crust. Cool to room temperature.

MICROWAVE 2 cups morsels and 3/4 cup cream in large, uncovered, 
microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1  minute; STIR. The morsels 
may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 
10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Cool to 
room temperature.

BEAT remaining cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract in chilled small 
mixer bowl until soft peaks form.  Fold 2 cups whipped cream into chocolate 
mixture. Spoon into crust; swirl top.  Garnish with remaining whipped cream. 
Refrigerate until firm.

MICROWAVE remaining 1/4 cup morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100%) 
power for about 30 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; 
squeeze to drizzle chocolate over pie. 

Let stand a few minutes before  serving.
