Easy As Pie: Treat Yourself to a Chocolate Chess Pie

20140212-ChessPie-091

Chess pie is a classic southern dessert that combines the delicious flaky crust of a pie with a gooey texture of a custard. Add in some chocolate, and you have a nearly-perfect dessert to whip up for your sweetie (or your friends). This is my very favorite kind of pie, and as an added bonus, it’s super easy to make!
