Chocolate Lover's Pie from Nancy Evans

The Children's Holiday Party always wraps up their event with a fabulous luncheon at a League member's home. Thanks to Gail Lucky for hosting such a lovely day.

Nancy Evans brought the most decadent, delicious chocolate pie from page 152 in Tastes & Treasures cookbook. Karen Swanson helps her serve it (or maybe she's waiting for her slice).

Chocolate Lover’s Delight Pie       

2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate morsels
10 large marshmallows
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 baked (10 inch) graham cracker pie shell

Combine the chocolate morsels, marshmallows, milk and salt in a double boiler over hot water. Cook until blended, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and let stand until cool.

Stir the walnuts into the chocolate mixture and fold in the whipped cream. Spoon the chocolate filling into the pie shell and chill from 2 to 10 hours. Slice and garnish each serving with chocolate shavings.
