Chocolate Walnut Pie


What would Thanksgiving be without pie?! I am one of those people who thinks that pie is superior to cake, and I love how pie takes center stage on Thanksgiving. I believe that you need to serve at least two pies on Thanksgiving and that one needs to be a fruit pie (like apple or pumpkin) and the second needs to involve chocolate.


This Walnut Chocolate Pie is a delicious option. It has a lighter texture with chunks of walnuts. It’s definitely on the sweeter side but the slight bitterness from the chocolate balances it out. You can taste just a hint of the bourbon.


This recipe is really easy. It’s one of those pie recipes that just involves mixing up some ingredients, pouring them into a frozen pie crust, and baking it. Thanksgiving already involves so much baking, take advantage of this quick and easy recipe.


I recommend warming this pie up in the oven before serving. It tastes better when the chocolate has melted. This pie pairs wonderfully with caramel ice cream.
