Where did the recipe come from? IT COMES FROM MY WIFE'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY, IT'S A KILLER RECIPE, IT'S VERY RICH, BUT IF YOU HAVE AN ANNIVERSARY OR BIRTHDAY COMING UP, IT'S JUST THE TICKET. We start out with the most important ingredient I guess, CHOCOLATE. ABOUT 3 OUNCES OF IT. AND YOU WANT TO BREAK IT UP INTO LITTLE PIECES, DOESN'T MATTER HOW SMALL THEY ARE, BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO MELT THEM INTO SOME HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM. A bunch of chocolate in a bowl, and we are going to melt it up in a saucepan, which I guess is our next step. YOU BET. THE NEXT BET IS TO GET THAT CHOCOLATE MELTED INTO THE CREAM, AND THE ONE THING YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IS TO GET THE PAN TOO HOT, YOU DON'T WANT TO BOIL THE CREAM, YOU JUST WANT TO GIVE IT A BASIS TO MELT THE CHOCOLATE, SO WE ARE GOING TO PUT 1 1/2 CUPS OF HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM, YEAH, I KNOW, YOU CAN COUNT THE CALORIES, BUT IT'S REAL NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS PIE RICH. SO WHIPPING CREAM GOES IN THE POT, THIS PART TAKES ABOUT 15 OR 20 MINUTES. SO AS YOU ADD THE CHOCOLATE, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED TO STIR IT ALMOST CONSTANTLY TO KEEP IT FROM.... Is this going to be worth all the work? OF COURSE, 15 MINUTES WILL GIVE YOU A PIE THAT WILL LAST FOREVER. YOU JUST STIR IT AROUND, AND GET IT ALL MELTED INTO THE CREAM. While you are working on the dry ingredients really quickly, we have to combine sugar with corn syrup and salt. ONE OF THE THINGS YOU WANT TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHEN YOU'RE MIXING THE DRY INGREDIENTS IS YOU WANT TO LET THE SAUCE COOL OFF A LITTLE BIT, BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO GET SCRAMBLED EGGS...SO YOU GET THE DRY INGREDIENTS MIXED UP...A little Vanilla in those eggs-- we've already done that. RIGHT, TWO EGGS BEATEN UP WITH A TEASPOON AND A HALF OF VANILLA. The sauce took us 15 minutes, a slow process, but it looks like a nice result. IF YOU DON'T GO TOO FAST, YOU'LL GET A NICE BLEND, AND IF YOU DON'T STIR IT TOO CONSTANTLY, YOU'LL END UP WITH A LUMPY MESS. SO YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THAT. ONCE YOU GET ALL THE INGREDIENTS COMBINED, YOU POUR IT INTO A NINE INCH, UNBAKED PIE SHELL, AND IT'S TIME TO GO. Now we go to the oven-- 400 hundred degrees, for 35 minutes. IT'S ALL FINISHED UP, LOOKS PRETTY GOOD. BUT IT NEEDS SOMETHING ON TOP. YOU CAN PUT A LITTLE SUGAR ON THERE FOR ME, AND YOU CAN ALSO USE A LITTLE WHIPPED CREAM.
