TIP: A ready-to-go chocolate sandwich cookie crust, either store-bought or homemade, serves as our base in this simple recipe. 
TIP: Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don't end up with lumps in your pie filling.
TIP: If you use a store-bought chocolate crumb crust that comes in a foil pie pan, we'd suggest placing the whole thing (crust and foil pan) inside a glass pie plate to help with stability.
