Chocolate Cream Pie

Ingredients
For the graham cracker crust:
  1. 9 graham crackers
  2. 5 tablespoons butter melted
  3. 2 tablespoons sugar

For the filling:
  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  4. 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 1/3 cup milk
  6. 8 ounces frozen whipped topping thawed
  7. Chocolate syrup for decorating, optional

Instructions
To make the graham cracker crust:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a food processor, or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, finely crush graham crackers. 
  • In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar. Pour into a 9-inch pie plate, using the bottom of a measuring cup to press the crust evenly and firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.
  • Bake until golden brown and fragrant, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely, at least 1 hour.
