Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Chocolate-Almond Pie

Yes, my blog looks a little different. Still not the custom chocolate blog design I want, but a simple template change for now. The dots were getting a bit distracting and this seemed easier to read.

Now, let's get to the chocolate.

I think it's only right that I inform you that tomorrow is International Chocolate Day. I suggest celebrating it with chocolate. But that's me.

Mmmm...This is a good recipe! Easy and so yummy. I found it in a cookbook called Chocolate Fantasies. I took it to a church banquet and it was a hit.

Chocolate-Almond Pie
1 (7 oz.) milk chocolate with almonds bar
18 marshmallows (large ones)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
1 baked 9-in. pastry shell

Combine candy bar, marshmallows, and milk in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from heat; cool. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into pastry shell. Chill at least 8 hours. Makes 1 pie.

I wish I had a slice right now! I used a frozen pie crust, and was quite surprised that the Marie Callender's pie crust was the cheapest. It even comes with a nicer, reusable tin.

As usual, the only thing I ask is that you save some for me!

Now, please do your part to make the blogosphere a little more chocolatey. Link up your family-friendly chocolate-themed post - old or new, recipes, pictures, thoughts, etc. Check out last Friday (be sure to visit the links) for ideas.


  1. Yum Yum, that looks so good, and I would say it appears that you have already had a slice....that's not very nice, you should offer the first piece to company that is visiting. And I am visiting you right now!!!!

  2. I think I have that Chocolate Fantasies cookbook, too! Found some good things in there!

  3. Lisa, I finally made it here for Chocolate Friday! The pie sounds TOO GOOD! I will definelty try this one! My contribution is at the bottom of today's post! I like your new layout! :) ~Rhonda

  4. I forgot to tell you that I like your new look also. It is easier to read for me!

  5. I should've done a post for this! International chocolate day--how fun!
