Lemon Pie - Oh My!

I got this recipe from a Mr.Food Cookbook and improved it thanks to Brandi. She suggested I melt chocolate over the crust. Lucas REALLY wanted to put his hand prints in this pie, but thankfully didn't. This recipe is so easy. We took it to a friend's house for dinner tonight and it was a big hit. I would have never thought lemon and chocolate would go so well together but they did!

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup lemon juice (about 2-3 lemons)
1 cup whipping cream
1 (6 oz) graham cracker pie crust
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips melted (optional)

1. Pour melted chocolate over pie crust and put in freezer to let harden.

2. While crust is in the freezer, whip whipping cream
3. Fold condensed milk and lemon juice into whipped cream
4. Pour filling into crust

5. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours
