Even after cooking a roast all day last weekend, I was still in the mood to cook and really (REALLY), hungry for chocolate pie. And doesn’t it always seem like you can have all but ONE ingredient for whatever you’re craving? Seems to be the norm around here, and I’ve gone to the store a half a dozen times this week just to get ONE item. *SIGH*. But at least I got my pie.
The recipe I used was the Chocolate Cream Pie from our recipe site. Even though I had chocolate pudding mix, I had no whipped cream or pie crust, so I was going to have to go up to the store regardless. This recipe didn’t use pudding mix, but rather chocolate chips (which I had as well) and whipping cream. I almost didn’t use it because it looked like a little too much work and I was being very lazy after making that big meal, but I gave it a shot anyway.
I was surprised it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be, and it took me probably the same amount of time it would have to make a pie from a pudding mix. And this pie – HOLY COW – it was DELICIOUS! It really lived up to it’s name because it was so creamy, and had that “made from scratch” taste to it.
This is for sure a recipe we’ll be making again since I’ve just absolutely fallen in love with it!
