Easy As Pie: Treat Yourself to a Chocolate Chess Pie


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!

Pour the mixture into the 9-inch unbaked pie shell and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes (or 60 minutes if you’re using a frozen crust), or until set. Let cool before slicing.
