Man Cannot Live On Chocolate Alone; But Woman Sure Can

. at . 8 comments

I’ve been experimenting on chocolate pies. “Yumm-O.”

I donated one pie to last week’s youth pie sale. And I took two pies to our Thanksgiving feast today.

Here’s my current recipe. It’s a combination of several recipes.

It takes about 5 minutes to put together.


  • 1- 8 oz bar of Hershey’s dark chocolate – broken into small pieces
  • 16 large marshmallows
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 graham cracker crust


  1. Put the following ingredients into a microwave safe bowl: broken chocolate, marshmallows, and 1/3 cup cream.
  2. Microwave until melted. Stir every (one) minute.
  3. Whip up 3/4 of the whipping cream until fluffy.
  4. Fold the whipped cream into the cooked (still warm) chocolate mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Pour into graham cracker crust. Refrigerate. Let set for at least 30 minutes.

I’m not sure what would happen if you didn’t whip the cream before hand. One of these days I’ll make it without doing that step. I’ll let you know the results.

I do know this about dark chocolate:In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and he saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the dark, and it was better.” Anonymous

    If you don’t whip the cream you will probably end up with chocolate soup – which also wouldn’t be a bad thing, you just wouldn’t want to pour it into a graham cracker crust. My suggestion is to leave it in the bowl, call a friend and grab two spoons đŸ™‚ You know my number…..

    Yep, you’ll be the first one I call.

    How’s your day been?

    oh man! I’m trying to be good, but that chocolate pie might send me under! LOL Maybe that will be our Christmas dessert this year.

    It would be tasty Christmas dessert.

    And would look pretty with(smashed up) peppermint on top.

    I’m wondering how to make some sort of raspberry cream to dollop on top.

    I agree this might be my Christmas Pie this year also. I think I will do a pepermint whipping creme for the top of it. Garnished with candy canes.

    Susan, you can to to to found some yummy ones. Type in raspberry sauce in the search index to found them. There is a Chocolate Raspberry Sauce by Sara Molten.
