Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
3 T. baking cocoa
6 T. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
2 T. sugar
2 T. 2% milk
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. plus 2 T. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
In a large bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, sugar and cocoa; stir in butter. Set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Press remaining mixture into a greased 9 inch microwave-safe pie plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until set.
In another small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and milk until smooth. Add egg; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Spread over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and remaining chocolate chips.
Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes or until a thermometer inserted near the center reads 160 degrees. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled. Let stand at room temperature before cutting.
