November Recipepalooza: Best Ever Chocolate Pie
I love, love, love this pie. The pie tastes just like a candy bar! It is incredibly rich, so a little goes a long way. I usually enjoy it with a glass of milk. The recipe has been in my family for more than 30 years, although its origin has been lost in history. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
1 cup Tillamook Butter
1 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 squares of unsweetened chocolate (melted and cooled)
1 baked and cooled pie crust
sweetened whipped cream
crushed Heath Bars or toffee
Beat butter with sugar until pale and fluffy. Blend in chocolate and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time, taking 5 minutes to beat in each egg. Beat until shiny and buttery looking. Pour into baked pie crust. Chill for several hours. Frost the top of the pie with whipped cream. Sprinkle the crushed Heath bars or toffee over the whipped cream.
Note: This pie contained raw eggs, an ingredient that should be avoided by women who are pregnant.
