Tales of the Dinner Belle

Chocolate is something I could eat every day. It’s definitely one of my guilty pleasures, and one of my favorite chocolate desserts is my Chocolate Chess Pie. I love the smooth and rich chocolate flavor. It is so decadent and delicious and yet so simple to make.

I’ve been making regular chess pies for years. These sweet pies became popular during the depression because they didn’t require refrigeration and because of their simple ingredients — butter, eggs, sugar, and flour. However, adding chocolate just elevated this dessert into something that is so good, you almost feel guilty about eating it — but of course I won’t.
