1 1/4 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
brown sugar
1 pkg
dark chocolate chunks
1/2 pkg
raw cranberries
1/2 c

1 dash(es)
water, as needed

CRUST

1 c

1 dash(es)

1 pinch

Step-By-Step

1Take all the crust ingredients and combine in a bowl. I like to mix with my hands. Then press into the bottom and sides of a greased, ceramic pie dish.

2Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Then remove and set aside.

3In one small pot, combine water, cranberries, sugar, brown sugar. Cook for 5 minutes on med.

4Then add chocolate and stir until melted. Remove from heat.

5When removed from heat, add rum. Set mixture aside. If you like a less strong rum taste, add with the chocolate and let it cook out some.

6In another pot, add heavy cream and gelatin. Keep on a low heat and just until the gelatin mixes into the cream.

7Then add the cream mixture to the chocolate cranberry mixture, and pour into the cooled pie crust.

8Refrigerate overnight. Serve with whipped cream. Best with either coffee or Earl Grey tea.
