• Weekend Recipe: Frozen Choco Velvet Pie
  • Still not done with your annual holiday get-t0gethers? Or maybe you're hosting a post-busy-holiday party?
    Make this your family's first indulgence in a sweet treat this year. This super decadent and chocolate-y pie will delight family and friends. 

    Makes 1 (9-inch) round pie

     Here's what you'll need:

    For the pie crust
    1 1/4 cups chocolate
    sandwich cookie crumbs (from about 12 pieces chocolate sandwich cookies, cream filling not included)
    3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine

    For the filling
    1 egg, beaten
    1 cup fresh milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons cornstarch, sifted
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    3 tablespoons butter or margarine, cubed
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    whipped cream topping and
    semisweet chocolate chips for garnish

    Make it!

    1 Make the pie crust: Combine cookie crumbs with melted butter or margarine. Mix well. Press crumbs firmly onto a 9-inch glass pie plate or round pan lined with aluminium foil. Chill in the freezer for 1 hour.

    2 Make the filling: In a bowl, combine beaten egg and milk; mix well. In a small saucepan, mix together sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Slowly add milk mixture to cornstarch mixture in the pan, whisking continuously until smooth.

    3 Cook combined mixtures over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, just until it comes to a boil, about 4 to 6 minutes.

    4 Lower the heat. Add chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla. Keep stirring until mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared crust.

    5  Freeze for 6 hours or overnight. When pie is ready, top with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate chips.

    Crusty Tip: Here's a nifty idea: Use the back of a measuring cup to press cookie crumbs onto your pie plate.
