For all the chocolate and chess pie lovers out there…this one’s FOR YOU!  Like the lemon chess pie recipe I posted a few months ago, you probably have all the ingredients in your fridge and pantry.  So, get out your whisk, a bowl and a couple of measuring cups & spoons cause there no special equipment needed!  I think this is perfect timing for Valentine’s Day!  Big Sweetie agrees…..

*Check the pie shell after the first 10 minutes and if it’s getting too brown, cover with a pie crust shield.  If you don’t have one,just make your own out of tin foil.  This will keep the pie crust from burning.  I use this trick on almost every pie.
