Gluten Free No Bake Chocolate Cream Cheese Pie

This is my husband's favorite pie.  It has been for years.  He loves the rich, creamy chocolate with the crunchy chocolate wafer crust and melted chocolate on top.  Who could blame him?  I love it too!  I get rave reviews whenever I make it, so of course I had to revamp it to make it gluten free.  It was a very easy fix, and I thought if you had made the Gluten Free Peppermint Chocolate Dipped "Oreos" from my last blog post, than maybe you had a few cookies left so you could make the crust for this Gluten Free No Bake Chocolate Cream Cheese Pie.  The crust is the only part you have to bake.  This pie is a snap to mix up and it sets up in the freezer after you put it together.  Enjoy!

1 pkg. (4 oz.) German's Sweet Chocolate
1 pkg. (4 oz.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1/2 cup milk
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
8 oz. tub Cool Whip, defrosted on kitchen counter (or any frozen non-dairy whipped topping)
1 chocolate wafer crumb crust (9") - recipe below

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. for crust.  In a food processor process 10-12 gluten free Oreo-type cookies, with the cream filling removed until they are a fine crumb (alternately, you can crush them in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin or kitchen mallet).  Melt 3 tablespoons of butter and mix with cookie crumbs.  Press buttered crumbs into the bottom and up sides of a 9" pie plate and bake at 350 degrees F. for 10 minutes.

While the crust is cooling, heat all but 3 squares of the chocolate with 1/4 cup of the milk in large microwavable bowl at high 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  Stir until completely melted.  Beat in cream cheese, sugar and remaining milk.  Gently fold in whipped topping until smooth.  Spoon into crust.  Freeze until firm.  Remove from freezer.  Let stand 30 min. at room temperature until pie can be cut easily.

Melt remaining chocolate about 15 seconds, and drizzle over pie.
