3 Easy Chocolate No-Bake Pie Recipes

Author: Shelly Hill

When it comes to making desserts for my family during the hot summer months, I look for recipes that don't involve turning on my oven. The recipes have to be easy, with common every day ingredients and more importantly, taste great!

When it comes to making these pies, it's important to remember that they need to be chilled for several hours before serving them. If desired, you can garnish your pies with some whipped topping.

These recipes would be great for everyday desserts or prepare one for your next family gathering.
