sliced strawberries on pieThis recipe takes a little from here and there, and makes one good pie! It's a great combination, that tastes like a chocolate-covered strawberry. There are quite a few steps, but they were worth it. I made this for a family barbecue and it was gone in a flash.


Total Time: About 40 minutes to make, but with time in between.

Yield: 8-10 slices

Source: The crust is from the Pioneer Woman.


  • Crust
  • 4 cups pretzel sticks, crushed with a rolling pin
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • Chocolate Coating
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • Cream Filling
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 container (8oz) Cool Whip
  • Strawberry Topping
  • 2 lb (a little less) strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch


  1. Crush pretzel sticks in a closed gallon-sized baggie, with a rolling pin.
  2. pretzels

  3. You don't want the pieces too big or too small. It's not recommended to do this step in a food processor.
  4. crushed pretzels

  5. Melt butter in the microwave for a few seconds.
  6. butter & sugar in bowl
  7. Mix pretzel sticks with melted butter and brown sugar.
  8. crushed pretzels

  11. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. Let crust cool.
  12. Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Microwave for 25 seconds.
  13. chips and butter

  14. Stir. Microwave a little more and stir until smooth.
  15. chocolate sauce
  16. Once pie crust is cooled, you are going to "paint" a chocolate layer on the crust.
  17. spreading chocolate on crust
  18. Spread the melted chocolate on the crust, covering as much of the crust as you can. Let the chocolate set and cool down before adding the next mixture.

  30. Cut up 1/2 cup of your fresh strawberries. Put in a sauce pan. Smash with a potato masher, if you have one. If not, you can use a fork.
  31. crushing strawberries
  32. Add 1/2 cup of water. Heat over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute. Take off heat.
  33. cooking strawberry glaze
  34. Strain strawberry mixture through fine-mesh sieve. Press down on the berries to get all that juice out.
  35. sieving glaze
  36. Return the strawberry "juice" back to your pan. Add sugar and cornstarch. Whisk until cornstarch is dissolved. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture is thickened.
  37. cooking glaze

  38. Either wait for the mixture to cool in the pan or put in ice bath to speed up the cooling. For ice bath, put mixture in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, add ice and water. Put the smaller container on top of the ice. The surrounding ice will cool it down. Just stir it every few minutes.
  39. strawberry glaze
  40. While waiting for the mixture to cool, slice your remaining strawberries.
  41. sliced strawberries
  42. Pour the strawberry glaze over your strawberries.
  44. Let pie set up for a few hours. Serve with Cool Whip on top, if you would like.
  45. Spoon glazed strawberries over cream mixture.

You can also use white chocolate, if you like. I always paint the chocolate with a pretzel crust or regular flaky pie crust, when I make strawberry pie to make sure the crust doesn't get soggy.

Although this one is for Raspberry Cream Pie, all you have to do is switch fruits. ;-)

Raspberry Cream Pie


1 cup heavy cream
1/8 tsp almond extract
3/4 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
One 9 inch pie crust, baked and cooled


Beat the cream and almond extract until stiff peaks form in a large bowl.

Bring the sugar, gelatin and water to a simmer over medium heat in a saucepan and stir until the sugar and gelatin dissolve.

Remove from the heat, add the berries and lemon juice and gently stir until the mixture begins to thicken.

Very gently fold the berry mixture in to the whipped cream and spread in to the pie crust and refrigerate overnight.
