Chocolate Valentine’s Day

Our kitchen had the most wonderful smell on Valentine’s Day – chocolate! We made cheese cakes and pies and candy for a large chocolate lovers event. I want to share with you one of the favorite pie recipes.

Candy Bar Pie

5 all-chocolate candy bars (can use bars with almonds if desired)
16 regular marshmallows, cut up
1/2 cup milk

1/2 pint of whipping cream, or small container whipped topping

graham cracker crust

Heat first 3 ingredients in a double boiler until candy bars and marshmallows are melted. Make sure you are using a double boiler pan so the ingredients don’t burn. The water in the bottom pan keeps the top pan off the direct heat. Let top pan cool completely.

Whip the cream with a rotary egg beater or electric beater until stiff peaks form. (Or use whipped topping for this step).
Fold this into the melted mixture.

Pour into graham cracker crust and chill for 1 hour before serving.

Note: you can even drizzle some chocolate or caramel syrup over the top. Cut in small slices and enjoy.
