Yummy Yummy for the Tummy! Top this pie with a generous scoop of ice cream, and some hot fudge sauce on top of that! Woah!
- 1⁄2 cup butter, plus
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄3 cups flour
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- hot fudge
- ice cream (generous scoop)
- Preheat the oven to 325°.
- Lightly butter a 9-in pie plate.

- Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix thoroughly.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
- Add to the creamed mixture and mix together.

I called this chummy yummy holiday chocolate chip pie - using half semi-sweet chips and half green-red swirl white chips. Very pretty & very tasty.
I definitely can verify the Yummy part of this recipe! I made this for a recipe-sharing family potluck dinner w/DH's brother & his family where I was to bring a starter, main course & dessert. All dishes had to be kid-pleasers for the benefit of their 5 & 6 yr olds. I could not imagine a better kid-pleaser than this pie & I was so right. It was served w/ice cream & they loved it! Can it be our little secret that it is a darn good adult pleaser too? There were 7 of us to feed & you might ask (looking at the pic) how I managed to get 7 nearly identical servings easily from a round pie. If you wondered, then I succeeded when I cut it in 8 slices, secretly devoured 1 & then rearranged the remaining 7 in a circle on the serving plate. No one had a clue the pie had been pre-tasted, but I had to do it for the rating process. Right? You got yourself a 5 star winner here forgiven. Yum! HITYL?
