Betty's Chocolate Pie Deluxe

I loved the name of this pie. Not just "Chocolate Pie," but "Chocolate Pie Deluxe."  Really basic ingredients for a really yummy (and rich) pie.

The recipe called for marshmallows, whipping cream, milk, chocolate candy bars and a homemade graham cracker crust.  Without thinking, I purchased Hershey's Special Dark bars even though it called for milk chocolate. I'm really glad I made this mistake.

I got to make my first "from scratch" graham cracker crust! Who knew it would be so easy? And I was thanking the Lord for my Cuisinart. I couldn't imagine grinding up the crackers any other way. Butter, sugar and graham cracker crumbs. What I loved about it (and the first thing my husband commented on) was that it made a really thick crust.

Next you beat the whipped cream in a chilled bowl...that was set aside in the fridge for later.  Time to melt the chocolate, marshmallows and milk!

Now, it's time for the assembly.  You just have to stir the chocolate once it's cooled and fold it into the whipped cream...then pour in your pie shell!

Betty warns you that the pie is pretty decadent and she isn't lying.  One tiny sliver is all we could manage...and then we shared as much as we could with friends.
