On a lark, I decided to make a chocolate pie. Although not a traditional choice, this pie was the hands-down favorite of the evening. It tasted just as good for breakfast this morning! This pie is surprisingly easy to make but it will WOW your guests.
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 cup milk
1 shot Baileys liqueur (I used a caramel Baileys)
1 pint whipping cream (use organic if you can)
1 cup Heath bar bits
1 9-inch chocolate cookie crust
1. Combine marshmallows, chocolate and milk in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on 50% power for about a minute and a half - have your children watch the marshmallows expand exponentially! Stir. Heat for another minute on 50% power. Stir. Add about a shot of Baileys (or your favorite liqueur). Stir. The chocolate will be shiny and smooth. Set it aside and let it cool.
2. In a stand mixer, mix the whipping cream on med-high to high until it looks like delicious whipped cream. Organic whipping cream will really taste better!
4. Spoon the chocolate cream mixture into a 9-inch cookie pie crust.
6. Cover and freeze for at least a few hours. This is obviously a great pie to make a few days ahead to save yourself some last minute hassle. Enjoy!!
