Frozen Chocolate Pie

This delicious treat resembles an ice cream pie.  It's a great dessert for those hot, summer days!  The other thing that's fun about it is you can add in anything you want to change it up a bit!  I love adding in Heath toffee bits, or peanut butter candies.......but of course, my favorite is the dark chocolate and coconut-tastes just like a Mounds bar!  :)

3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/3 cup milk
8 ounces whipped topping, regular or chocolate
1 9" pastry shell, baked

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Add cocoa alternately with milk; mix well.  Fold in whipped topping.  Pour into pie shell.  Freeze 8 hours or overnight. (Garnish with chocolate curls before freezing.)
*For a variation, try adding 1 teaspoon coconut extract and folding in 1/2 cup toasted coconut with the whipped topping.
