Mexican Chocolate Pie

Last year I got obsessed with pie. Or more like the idea of pie. I went on a crazy pie cookbook buying spree and ended up with a small stockpile. I justified all of these amazon deliveries (wahoo to two day shipping!) to my husband by promising we’d have one KILLER dessert spread for Thanksgiving.

The only problem? We went for the non-traditional route and ended up having taco’s for dinner instead of turkey. Fast forward a few months and here we are. It’s February and I hadn’t made a pie. After browsing through a few different options I finally decided on this Mexican Chocolate Pie from Allison Kave’s book, First Prize Pies.

What You Need:

Before you run for the hills, hear me out. Mexican chocolate, or spicy chocolate, is one flavor you have to try. That sweet and spicy combo is out of this world and a completely unique way to satisfy your sweet tooth! You can already find a few variations right here on the site in my Mexican Hot Cocoa and Spicy Chocolate Cake! But this pie is a flavor all on it’s own. We’re making a rich and decadent ganache and turning it into a custard pie that’s sprinkled with just enough spices to give it a nice kick.
