In an effort to sweeten up some of the snark, I hereby present a recipe for Chocolate Pecan Pie!
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- pinch salt
- 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 can (12 ounces ) evaporated milk
- 1 stick butter, melted (8 tablespoons)
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 2 unbaked pie shells — deep dish
Mix sugar, salt, and cocoa together. Whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and milk; stir into the dry ingredients. Add melted butter and stir until well blended. Sprinkle pecan halves in the pie shell, about 1/2 cup in each shell. Pour filling over the pecans. Bake at 350° for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the filling is set and the center is just slightly jiggly.
Makes 2 pies.
