Oreo cookie crumbs: It takes about 24 cookies.
Semi-sweet chocolate: Use good quality chocolate for the best flavor, chop it finely. chopped
Heavy whipping cream: You could use half and a half here if you wanted but the heavy cream makes it awesome!
Vanilla: Did you know adding vanilla actually helps chocolate taste more like chocolate, it does!
Instant espresso powder: This give the chocolate pie a richer more dark chocolate flavor. You can leave it out if you want to.
Heavy whipping cream: I would not recommend using half and a half here. You need the fat and the cream to help set up the filling.
Granulated sugar: Adds a bit of sweetness.
Heavy whipping cream: Ideal for whipping up to a creamy topping.
Granulated sugar: Adds a bit more sweetness.
Vanilla: Adds that touch of sweet flavor.
Chocolate shavings: These are optional, but sure do make it look pretty.
How to Make the Crust for a No-Bake Chocolate Pie
Easy to throw together, this makes a great make ahead dessert! This no-bake chocolate pie has a few easy steps and
Crush: In a blender or a food processor, add 24 Oreos and pulse until it becomes a wet powder resembling set sand. This can alternatively be done by hand in a large ziplock bag with a rolling pin.
Combine: Melt ¼ cup butter and mix with the oreo crumbs.
Place in Pie Tin: Press evenly into a 9-inch pie pan and put in the fridge to chill while you prepare the filling.
Mixing the Filling Together
Prep the chocolate: Chop chocolate into small pieces and put in a heat-proof bowl.
Melt Heat 2/3 cup of cream for about 45 seconds in the microwave, until steaming. Pour over the chopped chocolate and allow to sit for several minutes.
Combine: Add vanilla and espresso powder to the chocolate and cream. Whisk together to make a thick ganache. Allow to cool completely.
Whip: While the ganache is cooling, add your 1 ½ cup cream and granulated sugar to a clean mixing bowl and whip until stiff peaks form. Be careful to not over whip your cream! Peaks should stand on their own and not flop over at all.

Refrigerate: Chill for at least 6 hours.

Tips For the Best Chocolate Pie
Here are a few things to keep in mind when making this indulgent no-bake chocolate pie.
Chocolate: Use good quality chocolate, think Lindt, Ghirardelli, or Godiva. The better quality the chocolate the better the flavor of the pie. Do not skimp on the chocolate. And do not use Chocolate chips. They have stabilizers in them that keep them from melting smoothly. Your pie could end up lumpy.
Crust: If you want to lighten up the chocolate flavor, use a graham cracker crust instead. You can substitute an equal amount of graham cracker for the Oreos.
Cream: You can use half and half to melt the chocolate if you desire. But use heavy whipping cream for both the rest of the filling and the topping. For the topping, if you are in a hurry you can use cool whipped topping instead.
Topping: You can place the whipped topping on each slice as you serve it, instead of spreading it on the whole pie if you would like. This will make storing leftovers easier.
Espresso Powder: Espresso powder is darkly roasted coffee beans that have been ground, brewed, dried, and then ground to a very fine powder. They help give the chocolate a richer, more intense flavor. You can leave out the espresso powder and still have an indulgent dessert. It is optional.
Garnish: There are other options besides the chocolate curls. Crushed Oreos, or Reese’s peanut butter cups, chopped nuts, or heath bar crumbles all make a great topping.
Storing Chocolate No-Bake Pie
You may not have any leftovers, but just incase you do, here is how to keep this no-bake chocolate pie around for a little longer.
Fridge: Because of the high dairy content, this needs to be kept in the fridge. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, I like to use toothpicks to keep it from squishing my whipped topping. Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Freeze: This freezes beautifully. It is best if you know you are going to freeze it, to not put the whipped topping on top. Wrap in plastic wrap and then with foil for a double layer. Freeze for up to 2 months. Let it thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

The French Grand Prix saw one of the closest on-track battles yet between title rivals Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, with the lead swinging back and forth right up to the penultimate lap at Circuit Paul Ricard. Verstappen predicted that the rest of the season would be just as titanic a battle between the pair, after coming out on top at a track traditionally seen as a Mercedes stronghold. “As you could see, the whole race we were fighting each other," the Red Bull driver told the media afterwards. "I think it will be like this for the rest of the season.” Verstappen had claimed pole position for the race in Saturday's qualifying session and initially got a good start to the race, only to brake too deep into turn 2 and hand the advantage to Hamilton....
If a tree farts in the forest, does it make a sound? No. But it does add a smidge of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. A team of ecologists measured these gases, or “tree farts,” released by dead trees in ghost forests. These spooky woodlands form when rising sea levels drown a forest, leaving behind a marsh full of skeletal dead trees. The new data suggest these trees generate about one-fifth of the greenhouse gases from ghost forests. The other emissions come from the soggy soils. Researchers report their findings online May 10 in Biogeochemistry. Explainer: Why sea levels aren’t rising at the same rate globallyGhost forests are expected to expand as climate change raises sea levels. So scientists have been curious how much climate-warming...

Try to see things from the other person’s point of view Usually when we disagree with someone it is because we can only see things from our perspective. And usually, we believe that we are right. But the issue is that the other person thinks exactly the same way- they believe that they are right as well! So, to disagree well, try to see things from the other person’s point of view. How do you do this? Imagine you were the other person, with the same kind of upbringing, and life experiences. Imagine that you went through everything they’ve been through. If you can slow down and allow yourself a few minutes to think like them, you may begin to see how they could think the way that they do. When you listen, try to understand rather than to be understood I’m...
