One of my coworkers baked a chocolate chess pie for me last year for Christmas. I was a bit skeptical since I don’t usually like chocolate desserts and this pie had the word “chocolate” in its name. Well my mom and I tried the pie that night and I was so surprised at how good it was! I asked my coworker for the recipe and I’ve made several of these pies since then. This pie is really so easy to make…and so yummy!
My mom and I are both gluten-free so we bought these pre-made gluten-free crusts at our local co-op grocery store. I haven’t been able to find these at any of the big-name grocery stores in my town.
So, here’s the recipe!
Chocolate Chess Pie
- 2 ounces of Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate
- 2 eggs
- 1 stick of butter (I use unsalted, but either will work)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 pie shell
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt the butter and chocolate in a pot on the stovetop.
- While the butter and chocolate are melting, mix all of the other ingredients together in a bowl.
- Pour the chocolate and butter mixture into the egg mixture and blend.
- Pour the mixture in a pie shell.
- Bake for 30 – 35 minutes.
