Recently, from a friend, I received a case of 60 individual 1.25 oz. Philadelphia Indulgence Chocolate Cream Cheese packets. Apparently, the restaurant received an over abundance of these cases and didn't realize the expiration date was pending so quickly. They gave out a few to friends and family. Being a friend, I lucked out with this delicacy. But, unfortunately, we are not bagel and cream cheese people, so I was stumped as to what to create with these chocolate sensations. Lucky for me my mind is always whirling a new recipe.
24 (1.25) oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese packets
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups rice crisp cereal
1 packet Swiss Miss hot chocolate
3 tab. melted butter or margarine
In a food processor or blender put in rice cereal and Swiss Miss Packet (yes, you can find uses for anything). Whirl until blended. Add melted butter or margarine. Whirl until mixed well. Press into bottom of pie plate sprayed with Pam. Do try to get some up the sides of the pan. In a bowl beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and beat 5 minutes more until air integrates with sugar and cream cheese. Pour into pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes only. Take out and cool. This pie is so full of chocolate flavor and resembles a chocolate pudding brownie.
