Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Drizzle

My boyfriend David is not a big fan of my desserts.  He is more of a pie guy.  I don't make a lot of pies.  Not for any particular reason, I just usually make cakes, cupcakes, stuff like that. I came across this strawberry pie recipe, and my mouth watered!  Its a perfect summer dessert!
 Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Drizzle 
(Recipe from Our Best Bites)

1 quart, fresh strawberries
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1, 9" graham cracker crust
1-2 ounces chocolate

Beat cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. 
In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream and powdered sugar until soft peaks form.
Add approximately 1 cup of heavy cream mixture to cream cheese mixture.  Beat until smooth.  Slowly add the remaining cream mixture.  Mix until combined.
Spread mixture into graham cracker crust.  Place in refrigerator.
Prepare your strawberries.  I chose to quarter mine, but you could cut off the stems and place them cut side down, or half them, or whatever makes you smile.
Once your strawberries are prepared, take the pie out of fridge and arrange strawberries on top.
Place your chocolate in a ziplock bag.  I used chocolate chips. If you use a chocolate bar, make sure to break it into pieces.
Microwave chocolate in zip lock for about 1 minute.  Continue at 20 second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
Snip off the end of the ziplock and drizzle over pie.
Refrigerate pie for at least 3 hours.
This pie should serve 8, but don't be surprised if you devour it all by yourself!
