DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter and chocolate together on low heat or in double boiler.
  • Meanwhile, put eggs in mixing bowl and beat until light and pale in color.
  • Beat remaining ingredients into eggs, than add slightly cooled chocolate mixture.
  • Mix thoroughly and pour into pie shell.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until top appears dry and filling is set but still somewhat soft inside.
  • Do not over bake; pie should shake like custard so it will not be too stiff when cool. It really shouldn't take any longer than 30 minutes.
  • For white chocolate drizzle, place baking square in small resealable plastic bag; seal bag.
  • Heat in microwave oven at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute.
  • Turn bag over; heat at MEDIUM 1 to 2 minutes or until melted. (Depending on the chocolate you use, sometimes you may need to add a little shortening for a smoother glaze.).
  • Knead bag until white chocolate is smooth.
  • Cut off very tiny corner of bag; pipe or drizzle white chocolate onto pie.
  • For chocolate drizzle, place chocolate chips in small resealable plastic bag; seal bag.
  • Heat in microwave oven at HIGH 1 minute.
  • Turn bag over; heat at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted.
  • Knead bag until chocolate is smooth.
  • Cut off tiny corner of bag; pipe or drizzle chocolate onto pie.
  • Let pie stand until chocolate drizzles are set.
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly warm without the drizzle.
  • This is great served plain, or with a topping of vanilla ice cream.
