Audrey's Chocolate Cream Pie

The best part of being home is always mom's cooking. Once again the dessert was cooked with so much anticipation that we dug right in, forgetting to take that lovely food stylized photograph. As you can see, the pie didn't suffer for attention.

This recipe comes from my Aunt Audrey via my mom. Mom says she made it often when we kids were growing up, but I didn't remember it--until I tasted it. Memories of scooping the filling out and leaving the crust on the plate flooded back. I've always been a picky eater. Luckily this is still just as good!

A two-step process is called for in the recipe, cooling the mixed ingredients before adding whipped cream. It also requires a double boiler, but my mom says she usually just places one saucepan over another one filled with water (not worrying about a tight seal between the two).

Chocolate Cream Pie

1 9 in. baked crust, regular or graham
16 lg. marshmallows
1/2 cup milk
1 lg. Hershey Bar with Almonds
1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Melt marshmallows and milk on top of double boiler. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Cool. Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Chill 6 hours before serving.
