my mister cooks // chocolate black-bottom pieTags : food, my mister cooks .
We enjoyed not one but 3 Thanksgiving day desserts. This one was by far my favorite though.
What sweets or dessert did you enjoy!
CHOCOLATE BLACK-BOTTOM PIE
Approx Time 4 Hours (due to chill times) // Serves 6-8
3 1/4 cups heavy cream
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon of spiced rum (we used captain morgan)
1 cookie pie crust (we bought the oreo pie crust)
1/2 cup toasted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons or confectioners' sugar
1.) In a medium microwave safe bowl, heat 1 1/4 cups of cream until hot, approx 3 minutes. Add chocolate and let stand until melted, approx 5-10 minutes. Whisk to combine, then whisk in rum. Pour 1 1/2 cups of chocolate mixture into pie crust and reserve the rest for topping later (we stuck ours in the fridge for the next day). Sprinkle nuts over top. Refrigerate pie 3 hours // or up to 2 days (we did ours overnight).
2.) In a large bowl, use and electric mixer, beat 2 cups cream with sugar on high until stiff peaka form, approx 2 minutes. Top pie with whipped cream. Reheat chocolate mixture and with a skewer, gently swirl chocolate through whipped cream. * We made the topping and then chilled ours until after dinner, so for 5 more hours. But I'm sure it would be tasty right away too!
