Simply Delicious Chocolate Pie

Oh, yes, I found a pie recipe that’s old, simple, rich, creamy, light and oh, so good!!! The best part! I easily adapted it to make it so we can eat it. While it did have a bit of sugar & dairy in it (from the semi-sweet chips), there wasn’t any other thing we were not to have. {Happy me}

It was super simple to whip together too… So go ahead and try it. You won’t be sorry. (It didn’t last 24 hrs here!!)

Chocolate Pie Recipe

1 C. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

3 T. Milk – I used Almond Milk

2 T. Sugar – I used honey (but actually think it could go without, it was plenty sweet for us.)

4 Egg Yolks

1 Tsp Vanilla

4 Egg Whites

Baked Pie Crust

Melt the chocolate, milk and sugar over low heat or in a double boiler.  Cool slightly. Beat in eggs yolks one at a time. Then stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl beat egg whites stiff. Fold the chocolate mixture in with the egg whites. Pour into pre-baked pie crust and chill. Serve with whipped cream. (I make my own whip topping and sweeten with a bit of maple syrup after it is whipped. No one minds!!)

I found this recipe from Homejoys, it is from her mother-in-law.

Yes, it has raw eggs in it. We raise our own chickens for eggs, so it doesn’t scare me. So you can decide for yourself if you want to try it. But it is worth the try. It will be a good ‘chocolate fix’ for me. I’m thinking of even trying it without a crust. I’m sure it would be just as good. Save me trying to make a gluten-free crust. (They are a pain, don’t ask how I know.)

You can also find these Chocolate Chips Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Gluten, Dairy & Soy Free on Amazon for a gluten-free and dairy free treat. (I know it still has sugar in it, so it is a limited, rare treat for my boys!!)

Let me know if you give it a try!!

(It looks saggy in this picture, because I didn’t allow it to chill long enough before we were ready to eat it. We, er, I, couldn’t wait to eat it.)
