I managed to get my technical problems sorted out….basically resulted in buying a new part. Apparently one of my kids took something off the laptop and hauled it off. Whenever something like this happens we usually check with my three-year-old or my twenty-year-old. If the three-year-old has it then it is stashed away somewhere for him to play with later. If the twenty-year-old has it…we make yet another trip to his GI doctor to have more x-rays. So far they have found a lot of interesting things…hehe…but that’s another story! 😉
While my husband was gone we spent some time with my parents and some of my siblings. There were lots of kids around so we decided to have an impromptu cookout. I whipped up about four chocolate chess pies. These pies are really easy to throw together and have a rich chocolaty flavor!
You will need (this will make two pies):
2 unbaked pie shells
3 cups sugar
6 TBSP cocoa powder
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tsps vanilla extract
Mix your cocoa and sugar together.
Lightly whisk your eggs then add to cocoa mixture.
Beat in milk, butter and vanilla.
Pour into your pie crusts and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min or until a knife comes out clean.
See?? Super easy! So flavorful that everyone will think you knocked yourself out to make them! 🙂
