Chocolate Chess Pie

Chocolate Chess Pie

Hello Everyone!

These past weeks have been a blur with school starting and getting so close to the end of my pregnancy (t-minus 10 days ya’ll!)

Since my two oldest are now in school, I like to have treats for them when they get home from school. Just something to let them know I was thinking of them and missed them. Sometimes its elaborate, sometimes its cut up apples with hazelnut spread or peanut butter. This week I decided to make a chocolate chess pie. I mean its chocolate… who doesn’t love a good chocolate pie?!

Let’s get started! I like to use a graham cracker crust because 1- they’re so dang easy to make. 2- I love the taste of the graham with the chocolate.

instructions for the graham cracker crust. If you don’t like to use brown sugar, just use white sugar. I really like mixing the two. It gives such a yummy taste to it.

What your crust will look like but there should be a lot more of it haha. I forgot to take a picture of the crumbs before I already molded it into the pie pan.

What your crust will look like after you pre-bake it. sorta the same, but it’s set so it wont crumble once you put your filling in! Let cool while you make your filling.
