Any time I make this, it still brings back memories of savouring every delicious bite, and competing with my older brother to see who could make it last longer! The sad part about this recipe is that it included a raw egg (the yolk into one part, the white beaten and folded in later). With all this salmonella talk, I can't bring myself to make it like that anymore (I've even stopped eating raw cookie dough!!). Because of these changes, it's not quite as creamy as it used to be, but it tastes delicious nonetheless.
The original recipe calls for it to be made in a pie plate, but I can never get the graham crust to go up the sides and still come out cleanly, so I made it in an 8x8 dish.
1 1/2c. graham cracker crumbs (I love sneaking in healthier ingredients, so I substituted 1/4 c. of wheat germ for 1/4 of the crumbs - same colour, no change in taste!) with 1/4c. brown suger, 1/3c. melted margarine, and 1/4c. melted chocolate chips. Press into dish, chill.
Blend 1 pkg. softened cream cheese with 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Beat in cooled chocolate.
Prepare 1 pkg Dream whip according to instructions (or use about 2 c. Cool Whip). Whisk into cream cheese mixture. Spread onto cooled crust.
Chill for a few hours. Top with a bit of chocolate sauce.
