Not sure about you, but I love chocolately sweets this time of the year. Give me a box and I'm in heaven... before that heartburn hits. Between eating foods and beverages that trigger my frequent heartburn, to family history and new year stress, it’s a good time to talk about heartburn prevention. Especially if you suffer from heartburn often like me. Preventative measures are a must! Enter Member’s Mark Omeprazole ODT. Take it once in the morning for 14 days, according to package directions. If you’re experiencing frequent heartburn a couple times a week (2-3) or more, this could be amazing relief for you! However, it’s important to note that it can take up to 24 hours for its full effect. Everyone is different!

CHOCOLATE CHERRY NO BAKE PIE
When it comes to Valentine's Day Desserts, you can't go wrong with the combo of cherry and chocolate flavors (if you ask me). Yum. This basic gelatin pie recipe has been one of my favorite go-tos. I thought it was time to give it a chocolate and cherry makeover, and what better time of the year to do it. This flavor pairing is so spot on. You may not even want to share it. Let me show you what I used to make it. The beauty is that there are only 4 ingredients. YES. Just four! It could not get any easier than this.
Here is what you need to make this yummy dessert:
- Instant Cherry Gelatin Mix
- Chocolate Pie Crust
- Whipped Topping
- Chocolate Curls
I also did add a cherry for a pretty garnish, but it's totally optional.
It all starts in your mixing bowl with hot water and your gelatin mix. Then, we cool it down with a few ice cubes. Set it in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then we fold in a container of whipped topping. That is the entire pie filling. Now it's on to the toppings.
Once you add the filling to your store-bought pie crust, it's time to have some whipped topping and chocolate fun.
The topping of this pie is another container of whipped topping. You can spread it right on top, or get a little fancy like I did. I used a pastry bag and frosting tip to make mine a bit more festive.
The only thing left to do is to add some chocolate to the top. I used store-bought chocolate curls. You can also use mini chocolate chips if that is what you have on hand. You could even add crushed chocolate cookies, too.
- 1 pkg Cherry Flavored Gelatin (3 oz.)
- ⅔ Cup Boiling Water
- 4 Ice Cubes
- 2 Containers Whipped Topping, Thawed (8 oz.)
- 1 Store-Bought Chocolate Crust (6 oz.)
- Optional Garnish: jumbo maraschino cherries.
- In a large bowl, combine gelatin mix and the boiling water. Stir until combined completely.
- Add about 4 ice cubes and stir until melted.
- Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
- Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and immediately mix one of the whipped topping containers.
- Whisk until fully combined.
- Pour this entire filling into the store bought pie crust and spread evenly.
- Spread or pipe with a frosting bag and tip, the second container of whipped topping on top of the entire pie.
- Sprinkle the chocolate curls or mini chocolate chips on top of the pie.
- Cover and store in the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
- Optional garnish idea: add a jumbo maraschino cherry or cherries on top.
