my birthday pie

Here's the recipe for the absolutely delicious pie my hubby's making today for my birthday!

Ribbon Pie
1 (8oz) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 c. water
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese softened
1/4 c. sugar
1 (12oz) tub cool whip, thawed
1 (6oz) Ready Crust graham cracker or oreo pie crust
filling: (your choice) 1 c. finely chopped cookies, candy, nuts, mini marshmallows, chocolate pieces, peanut butter cups *I use the oreo pie crust with mini chocolate chips, mini m&m's, and oreos as filling

1. Stir chocolate with water over low heat until melted, then cool
2. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add chocolate. Fold in cool whip
3. Spoon half the mixture into crust. Sprinkle with fillings (reserving a small amount), pressing down gently. Spread remaining chocolate mixture carefully over filling. Sprinkle with remaining reserved filling pieces. Chill 3 hours.
