Chocolate Chess Pie

Merry Christmas Eve! I'm just popping in to share a classic Southern dessert recipe that happens to be a family favorite: Chocolate Chess Pie.

I doubt there will be many people reading this post today, or many other blogs for that matter, but if you catch yourself on social media and need a simple, last minute dessert recipe with items you may already have in your kitchen, I've got it covered.

On both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can find my face fully immersed in this pie at any given moment. For brunch. As an appetizer. As, duh, dessert. It's that good!

Using a store bought pie crust, mix eggs, butter, sugar, and unsweetened chocolate together, adding in a dash of vanilla at the end for a rich and gooey chocolate pie.

For one pie, melt 2 1oz. squares of unsweetened chocolate and 1 stick of butter in small pan on the stove, or in the microwave.

Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup of sugar together until fluffy.

Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg/sugar mixture and mix well. Stir in 1 tablespoon of good vanilla extract.

Pour into pie shells and bake for 25-27 minutes at 375.

This recipe is so easy to double, triple, or even quadruple for a larger crowd. Think of it as my Christmas gift to you.

Merry Christmas, everyone! :o)
