My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is homemade pies. YUM! My all time favorite is my Great-Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie. Grandma Chunkie (real name Lilly Maybell) was a little spitfire. She had purplish pink (sometimes blue!) hair and always made you laugh. She also made THE best pies! Usually for our Thanksgiving dinners, we would have about 3 pumpkin pies along with banana, lemon and chocolate. She made me my own mini chocolate pie. A tradition, I have started with my kids, because we all know pumpkin pie is totally gross when you’re a kid!
For all you chocoholics, this pie is a must! Here’s the recipe that she wrote on a small piece of paper:
Grandma Chunkie’s Easy to Make Rich & Creamy Chocolate Pie
¢ One large Hershey Candy Bar (milk chocolate) 8 oz (now I get 2 large chocolate bars)
¢ 18 large marshmallows cut up
¢ 1/2 cup sweet milk (I just use regular milk)
¢ 18 oz. Cool Whip
¢ Melt Candy bar and marshmallows in milk over low fire until smooth. Cool.
¢ Add 1-9 oz Cool Whip into chocolate mixture
¢ Pour into baked pie shell and keep cool until ready to serve.
Don’t forget to spoon a large helping of Cool Whip on your slice of pie! (I like to add chocolate sprinkles too)
