I splurged this weekend. Since it was Super Bowl Sunday, I decided that we needed a little extra something for dessert. Chocolate Pie won. It might not look very photogenic but it makes up for it in taste -- rich and creamy.
I learned a couple of lessons from this chocolate pie. A homemade graham cracker crust is well worth the effort. All these years I've spent in the kitchen and I had never made a graham cracker crust from scratch. I'll never buy another one again. The taste of my homemade crust was superior to the one you pick up off the shelf. No waxy or chemical taste. The goodness of the graham crackers shines through
Plain yogurt and 1/2 c. of melted chocolate chips make an excellent topping. Yep. Next time you don't have whipped topping, melt 1/2 c. of chocolate chips and mix it with a container of plain yogurt. Better for you and tastes good too
So, now I'm curious about you. What is something you've done in the kitchen that once completed you couldn't believe you hadn't done it sooner?
