It's a Chocolate Kind of Holiday

a favorite recipe around holidays at our house is the Chocolate Pie recipe...

This is more of a Thanksgiving tradition, we always had it at our Thanksgiving gatherings as a child, and I usually make it every Thanksgiving, and it has become a favorite with my father-in-law! I always forget every year how incredibly easy this pie is to make for such a yummy dessert, and so many different ways to change it up! I hope you enjoy it also.
it's a very simple...fast...sinfully good pie...Think I'll make one for Christmas this year...

Hershey Bar Pie
1 Oreo Cookie Pie crust (store bought or homemade)
1 ex large Hershey Bar (I think it's around 7 oz)
1/4 cup evaporated milk
20 large Marshmallows
1 pint whipping cream

Break up Hershey Bar and place into large microwave safe bowl, add evaporated milk and marshmallows. Heat for 40 seconds and stir, continue until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth, about 2 1/2 minutes total, , (this can also be done on the stove top using a double boiler, but why?). While mixture is cooling whip up the whipping cream until still peaks form (using an electric mixer), fold into chocolate mixture, pour into crust, refrigerate 2 hours before serving, top with sweeten whipped cream.

*Use Hershey bar with almonds, or dark chocolate, or another type of chocolate bar...
*stir in 1/2 tea of mint extract
*omit evap. milk and use 1/8 cup coffee and 1-2 teaspoon instant coffee whipped into whipped cream
*add 1/4 cup peanut butter to the chocolate mixture and melt
