Chocolate!!!

Better late than never! Here is my Southern Blogger Momma's post on...CHOCOLATE. I have never met anyone that doesn't like some form of chocolate. It is the absolute best. It comforts you after a tough day, it makes a celebration come to life, and it's your best friend when your watching a chick flick with the girls. This is my post dedicated to our best friend...chocolate.

My go to chocolate recipe is actually chocolate pie with chocolate whipped cream. I get asked to make this pie at nearly every family gathering, for birthdays, or when someone has a craving.
I just use a store bought pie crust. I've never attempted to make my own pie crust, but Josh said if I ever want to throw down with Bobby Flay, I've got to learn.

Ingredients:
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together egg yolks and sugar. Mix in cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt. Add milk and stir gently.
Pour mixture into a large saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in butter or margarine and vanilla extract. Cool slightly, then pour mixture into pastry shell. Chill before serving. Top with chocolate whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Chocolate Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

1 pint whipping cream
1/2 hershey's chocolate bar-grated
3 tablespoons powdered sugar or to taste

Directions:

whip all the ingredients on high until the whipped cream develops medium peaks.


Hope y'all enjoyed this weeks recipe!!! Next week I will be talking about my favorite Thanksgiving dishes!

  1. I made a pie crust once. Once. Never again. :) Looks and sounds sooooo yummy! And chocolate's definitely one of my very best friends. We hang out pretty much every day, several times a day...and especially late at night while Lily's sleeping. I've really gotta stop that.
