Rocky Road Dessert Pie

I couldn’t stay away from desserts for too long.  About 50% of the recipes in my ‘book’ are deserts.  I love deserts.  But now that I’ve hit middle age, it’s a lot to deal with the sweets.

Anyway, my mom used to make this a lot.  It’s another one of these, easy to do, but it looks and tastes awesome.

A note: You can also use a tiara torte pan, instead of a pie pan. That type of pan has a raised section in the middle, when you complete baking, there’s actually a large indention in the cake that you can fill with the whipped topping mix.
